Santa Fe, NM ~ The first two photos were taken within the city of Santa Fe, but the remaining were taken within an Indian reservation, location unknown (unremembered). Sometimes we just start driving in a direction until we feel like stopping. Therefore, I can’t remember how we arrived at this particular reservation outside of Santa Fe, but I do remember stopping due to the beautiful church grounds.
New Orleans, LA ~ Jackson Square, named after Andrew Jackson, is a huge attraction in New Orleans. It is located in the French Quarter around many other historical sites, including the St. Louis Cathedral (also pictured). On almost any given day you can enjoy the works of local artists and musicians in the square. Sadly, on this given day a storm rolled in and drenched myself and my trusty camera. This was the day my first fancy camera died. : […]

New Orleans, LA ~ Another great trip to NOLA! I have such fond memories of great meals and great conversations with loved ones. We took a haunted tour of the quarter at night. It was more of a local history lecture than a ghost hunt, but still fun. The Andrew Jackson Hotel is said to be heavily haunted, and (allegedly) has very few guests who stay a full night. Walking the Quarter at night was scary enough, but loads of […]

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 ~ If you visit New Orleans, you will most likely end up in the French Quarter at some point. These photos are a glimpse of the storefronts and residential areas of the Quarter. What is hard to capture in photos is the incredibly tight space in which things are situated. I had to squat across the street and aim my camera to the sky in order to get a full shot of most buildings. Many of these […]

Boise, ID ~ I was in awe of the beautiful neighborhoods throughout Boise. The town is rich in history. The cathedral featured below was located directly across the street from our residence. On the other side of this cathedral was a really neat co-op with fabulously healthy food. It was nice being able to walk to the grocery store.
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.
