Wheres the Adventure?

Flower Power

In my next trick, I will be a floral photographer. I’m always super excited when the light hits a flower just right, when I have company, a bee/an insect, who is admiring the art just as I am, or just after it’s rained and the beads of water have yet to fall. San Jose doesn’t […]

When In … Nashville

Tulsa was practically deserted, especially […]

DC baby.

I had the pleasure of overnighting in Washington D.C. last week. Although the sun was shining, it was cold as hell!
