Noël Zia Lee lives in the Pacific Northwest and loves to shoot photos. She’s also very fond of post processing via Photoshop Elements and the Topaz Labs plug-ins. Noël is a retired technical writer, an aging computer nerd, and a doting grandmother. She is confined to a wheelchair due to severe arthritis and takes all her photos from a sitting position. She finds this limitation inspiriing in the same way that being limited to 17 syllables inspires a haiku poet.

Her other hobby is screenwriting, which also has inspiring limitations.
