About Catherine

 More than 40 years ago I fell in love with the idea of being a photojournalist.   When I was in college I took a Photojournalism class learning all about 35 mm film, black and white photography and the dark room.  I was smitten.   

As life can often taking you down a different road,  I became a Wearable Artist designing and painting clothing:  C.Watson Originals.    I enjoyed creating and marketing  C.Watson Originals for more than 10 years.

Just a few years back I designed and marketing another artistic line of clothing, one of a kind jackets: C.Watson Original Design.  Although I loved creating this line of jackets, I launched it in a bad economy, 2011.  I still love this line but will put it aside for now.  

The years have passed by with lots of twists and turns but I always have loved the camera and looking through the lens of my camera taking photos that tell a story.  And now I feel is the perfect time to tell a story via Blogging.   So here I go working this craft and building my passion. 

I love small towns, traveling, telling a story and I love looking through the lens of my camera. Small Town Travel Geek is the start of following  my passion.  

Along with telling a story,  I have taken many photos that tell a story.  You will find them here on this site under PHOTO STOREPlease visit those pages and let me know what you think.  

Thanks for stopping by, this should be fun!.
