María Helena Carey really loves food. Although she has always liked to write, tell stories and take pictures as well, it wasn’t until she moved to the nation’s Capital back in 2006 that she began exploring all those likes in a serious manner. She loves poking around Capitol Hill and photographing some of her favorite things: food, her kids, quirky little dogs and cats, as well as strangers taking pictures of other strangers. She is also a photographer and you can see her work at http://mariahelenacarey.com You can contact Maria at Maria [dot]Carey [at] thehillishome [dot] com.
