I have always been drawn to the visual arts, specifically photography. Add to that the sensuous, addictive sound of a camera shutter clicking and it seemed natural that I would begin a journey leading to a career in photojournalism. Armed with a Rolleiflex borrowed from my father, I wandered the streets of Philadelphia with purpose, documenting life around me, finding complex faces much too fascinating to ignore and amassing stories in my lens for the telling.

Eventually, life took me in a different direction, and an exciting and long career in Floral and Event Design followed.

Now, through the surge of the digital age, I have returned to my roots in photography. The freedom of newly developed camera and computer technology has offered me the perfect stimulation which I find much too tempting to resist. My lifelong passion to capture and suspend moments in time continues, with an added inspiration to style them AS I IMAGINE IT. - Arlene Bluestein

As I wrote to you privately: You have an eclectic eye. You don't pigeonhole your self with one subject matter. I especially love your scenic photos as they are serene and relax me. Don't ever stop shooting and sharing.

Thank you, Arlene, for letting me share your world of imagination. You have inspired me, a latecomer to photography.

Hey Arlene,

"As I Imagine It" is superb. You continue to put such a special touch on your photography and your music helps to emphasize nature in all of its glory. Each of your images has a way to speak to the viewer in an almost hypnotic way. Congratulations on this lovely web site. The people in Pelican Cove and in Philadelphia are very fortunate to have you with them.

I met you at Postal Factory and looked up your site. Your photos are so beautiful! I love every single one.
