Ray Meuse had been photographing for many years as a passionate sideline to his engineering career. In 1987 he decided to forgo engineering to devote full time to his real vocation of photography. A summary of his photographic exhibits may be viewed on hisResume
Ray's approach to photography is more emotional than intellectual. If an image does not "grab" you then it has failed to communicate to you and may be viewed as a failure. But if only one person is strongly moved by an image then that image is a great success in Ray's mind. Elaine Meuse, the author of A Cross in her Pocket, is a retired librarian, singer and cellist. Ray and Elaine live in Seattle and have three grown sons and three grandchildren. For a description of her novel go to the page Elaine's Novel
