Welcome to Micheile Dot Com. I decided to make a change, and use my (middle) name Micheile as my domain name. Since middle school I’ve used the name Micheile instead of my given first name, Teresa. I admit I love the name Teresa, and even when I say it in my thoughts I hear my mothers voice. The thing is it would be too confusing to switch it back after all these years. That said, Micheile, pronounced me-shell (in the English Michele) is spelled rather uniquely and people find it quite confusing. My mother had a friend in high school that she admired and her name was Micheile. The friend had immigrated from France to the US, and I wonder if her name was simply pronounced or even spelled incorrectly in the US —lost in translation. Either way I have grown used to it, though so many Dutch people like to know there is a silent E at the end. Mee Shella, which I can’t stand. but can live with.
After ten years of blogging (Vintage Rose Brocante, A Creative Mess, Visual Stories) I’ve decided to blog about my photography journey. The photos, and the stories that accompany them. I’ll share with you my locations, camera settings, resources and or the behind the scenes.
