New York, NY ~ These photos were taken in 2015. I was thrilled to see the museum, but I was far more excited to see the Bjork exhibit on display that summer. Sadly, photos were not allowed for most of her exhibit, but I did manage to get one set. Elvis Costello, another all time favorite, also made the cut. Good times!

St Francisville, LA ~ These photos were taken in 2010, with one of my first cameras, so the quality is not that great.This hotel is known to be extremely haunted. We had a few spooky events occur while staying here, but nothing too terrifying. The food and service was fantastic, and the scenery is beautiful. I’d recommend their restaurant if you are in the area, but I think that one night stay was enough for me.
Winona, MN ~ This is Winona in the winter. This particular winter was mild, or so they say – I’m a Texan, all Minnesota winters are brutal to me. The aerial views were taken from E. Garvin Heights Rd., where you can drive all the way to the top of a bluff and see the entire city spanning the Mississippi. The ducks are swimming near the Winona Visitor’s Center, situated right on Lake Winona. The remaining city street pictures were […]

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!

Levelland, TX ~ Levelland is about forty minutes away from Lubbock, TX. This is a nice drive if you want to get out of town for a while (assuming you live in Lubbock). Plenty of fields and sky to admire on the way, and a beautiful park and town square to enjoy when you arrive. We even drove out here once just to do laundry.

Carlsbad, NM ~ Carlsbad is a neat place, but somewhat out of the way. If planning to visit, it would be best to anticipate spending the entire day, or more, here. The cavern tours can take hours depending on how far you’d like to walk. You certainly wouldn’t want to rush that, not that you could – them caves are slippery! I also enjoyed walking around outside. There are many interesting exhibits about the history of the land, the local plant/animal […]
Boise, ID ~ The Boise Train Depot has a long history (established in 1881). In 1924 it was remodeled to reflect a Spanish style architecture. It was operational, off and on, until 1997. It is presently listed on the National Registrar of Historic Places, and is a popular tourist attraction.
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.
