Red Wing, MN ~ Red Wing is located on the Mississippi River. It is known for natural attractions, nearby Frontenac State Park is popular for birdwatching. It is also known for, you guessed it, Red Wing Shoes and Red Wing Stoneware. Most towns situated on the Mississippi make for beautiful places to visit. This town is no exception, and has a lot of historic charm.
Washington, D.C. ~ The featured photo in this set is the “Friendship Archway,” a Chinese gate at H and 7th Street. All photos were taken in the historic Chinatown area, east of downtown along H and I and 5th and 8th street.
Washington, D.C. ~ Captured these beauties while strolling through D.C., mainly around the national mall and monuments. I was fortunate to have visited at the beginning of the spring bloom. Also very lucky to have had perfect weather. Overall, it was a perfect visit!
Waxahachie, TX ~ One of my favorite places to be! The people are nice, the stores are unique, and there is history at every turn. Each building has an original style and most are very well maintained. Anyone who loves antiquing should consider a weekend visit.

New York, NY ~ While visiting NYC we stayed at Chelsea Pines Inn on W 14th St., which we highly recommend. Directly across the street is the Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church at St. Bernard’s. Capturing the full scope of a large building in a tight city street isn’t easy, but I thought this one was worth a try. We also had a chance to catch a game at Citi Field. Unbeknownst to me, I was sporing the opposing […]
Montréal, Canada ~ The first photo in this series is of our hotel room at Parc Suites Hotel, 3463 Park Ave, Montreal, QC H2X 2H6, Canada (parcsuites.com). I’m sure there are fancier, newer places to stay nearby, but we greatly enjoyed this particular hotel because of the homely feel of the rooms and friendliness of the staff. You feel like you are staying in your own downtown apartment. From this location we were able to walk in all directions, exploring […]
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 […]

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. : […]

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!
