Welcome to my blog Upstate Girl, (a.k.a Follow Your Bliss Part II), I am an independently published author. This blog is all about writing and the stuff that inspires me to write, the joys and obstacles that come along with the writer's life, and my fascination with the psychology of people and what makes them tick...the human condition, as is...and my love for words, playing with them and making sense of them...and I throw in a few photos from my acre of the world just to make things pretty...sometimes there are things I have no words for, only pictures will do.

*Copyright notice* All photos, writing, and artwork are mine (
© Laura J. Wellner), unless otherwise noted, please be a peach, if you'd like to use my work for a project or you just love it and must have it, message me and we'll work out the details...it's simple...JUST ASK, please.

Studying Stones...

My visit to Tinker Falls last month allowed me to get behind the frozen waterfall to photograph the beautiful rock formations behind it...tho' many of my photo's turned out to be blurry because it was dark and my hand wasn't very steady... these are my favorites from that day...


I've been busy as can be working on my proof for The Fractured Hues of White Light, I have three more chapters left to proofread, I'm so relieved that it's getting closer to being ready to publish...and it's just as good as I believed it to be...


Lovely stuff... I've started printing photographs on my new printer, working out what ones are the best of the best, and tweaking images that need work...I'm impressed with how nice they print...and now I'm nearly out of ink, so I must wait for my order to arrive (unless I go to the store first and pick up more!)

Very nice photographs of rock formation. Great variation in shape and colour.

I know what you mean about the ink running out quickly when printing photographs. It can get pretty expensive.

these are just wonderful as abstractions, and thanks for the review of Hedgehog!

I love stones! I was just photographing them yesterday.

Very handsome rock formations. I can almost feel the compression and twist that the earth did to get the cracks in the rocks. Quite beautiful!
