Riveting Notes

Deborah Herndon’s Blue Shutters, Catalan, Spain

Deborah Herndon, a photographer from West Virginia, pairs her passion as a professional photographer with her passion for food. During her travels to France and Spain she shoots architecture and urban landscapes and combines them with her own recipes that she’s developed from her 20 years of travel. She and her husband were married in Paris and return every year to discover more about different cultures there and in adjoining countries. In addition to her photographic images she produces note cards and thank you notes that feature her photographs and recipes including “Catalonia, France” doors and recipes and her newest release “Catalan Doors & Recipes from Spain.”
