San Antonio, TX ~ Brackenridge park is located in downtown San Antonio, and is surrounded by numerous attractions like the San Antonio Zoo, Japanese Tea Garden, and multiple museums. The final picture in this set is of the beautiful Hotel Emma (a converted 19th century brewery), also located near by.
Québec, Canada ~ These photos were taken while visiting Parc Boisé du Quai, at the end of Rue-Sainte Anne in the city of Baie-Saint-Paul. We wandered down the only street we could find that would take us to the water. Discovering the park and walking trails was a pleasant surprise. Baie-Saint-Paul has many wonderful restaurants and historic attractions. We just need to brush up on our French, because this is an exclusively French speaking area.
Corpus Christi, TX ~ The Corpus Christi Bay houses a number of attractions. These pictures were taken while visiting the USS Lexington and the Texas State Aquarium. You can swim in the bay, but you’ll see far more fishers than swimmers. It goes without saying that Texas is hot in the summers, but Corpus is unbelievably hot AND humid. The original photos had such a haze that the color was grayish. The colors have been adjusted a bit, perhaps too […]

Various Locations ~ I was asked to put together a set of black and white photos for a family member to use in their restaurant. These are the photos they selected, in black and white of course. Some of these photos have already been posted (in color) on this website. The newer ones, taken this year or last year, have yet to be posted. So this is sort of a sneak peak of things to come. Enjoy!

New Orleans, LA ~ This goes without saying – New Orleans is a fun place! The first few pictures (theater and street car lines) were taken at the beginning of Canal Street. The next four pictures were taken at the end of Canal, which stops at the Mississippi river. While on this trip, my camera and I got caught in a rain storm. My first love – my first fancy camera – died on this trip. The last three pictures in this […]

Manistee, MI ~ This town will be forever associated with my husband’s friends, and the good times we had visiting them. We don’t make it up there nearly as often as we’d like, but whenever we do we have the red carpet rolled out for us. I have so many great memories of good people, good times, and a lot of drink. The quiet times were also enjoyable; we had many peaceful strolls along the beach and even swam a […]

Mackinac Island, MI ~ This is one of the most beautiful places I’ve visited. There is so much history and beauty to behold. The time it takes to fully explore requires more than a typical weekend stay. Most of these pictures were captured while bicycling around the island, which is what most visitors do since not too many cars are transported over. A special thanks to Matthew Lindeman for being our expert guide and gracious host!
Boise, ID ~ Boise is a beautiful town with many parks and trails. My daily walk consisted of walking past the capitol, through downtown, and past this particular park: The Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial. In addition to the beautiful fountain and sculptures, the memorial park contains a large “Quote Wall” featuring historical quotes from inspirational figures. The nearby bridges are also spectacular. Wintertime was fun; living with snow was new to me, now it is just an annoyance.
