Who is Susan Lake?

I’m a travel photographer – well sort of. I don’t get paid to do it. In fact I pay lots of money to cruise ships and airlines and hotels so I can get to do it. By this I mean that I travel and love it and so I take lots (and lots) of photographs to record my “adventures.” I’m no professional and don’t even want to be. What I do want is to take pictures that transport me back to the moment. I also want to take images that others will enjoy since the sharing is part of the fun.
