One of my favorite images I captured while traveling through Europe.
Seeing the walls of Belfast was a very emotional moment for me. I can remember as a child watching the news and seeing the sadness that came with the violence and how it touched me so young, many times bringing me to tears. I was way to young to understand what was actually happening and what it was about but I knew this moment in history sadden me deeply, so being able to visit and giving my respect and a silent prayer was extremely meaningful to me.
My gawd some amazingly beautiful cars I seen on the ferry going to Wales participating in the Cannonball Run in Ireland
My husband and I just returned from an amazing trip where we visited London, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Every city we visited was absolutely amazing and the countryside was the most vivid green I’ve ever seen. Below are just a few images I’ve taken and edited and have some many more to review, edit and share.
The wildness of Central Washington is amazingly beautiful……. the powerful Columbia River and the Wild Horse Monument are located in Vantage and the prairie image was taken in Sprague Washington. Many people think Washington is rainy and green however Central Washington has some very harsh prairie lands with beauitful landscapes to be capture by any photographer.
Marshall Lake is located in Newport Washington, and is just one of nature’s beauties we have here. Our family has been visiting this lake for four generations and have enjoyed fishing for the best Rainbow Trout you can find.
After a busy week I always look forward to hitting the water and taking in the peaceful moments of this glorious lake.
Spring is my favorite time of year I get so excited to photograph all the beautiful flowers that are in bloom. I love the colors, shapes and textures and I have so much fun with editing the images to see what I can create.
Gordon (my camera) and myself took a stroll together through the neighborhood and captured wild flowers, I loved the poppies that were growing randomly in a yard that we passed by so I could help but capture their beauty.
As a photographer, I am really trying to explore my editing skills in multiple programs and just letting my artistic skills grow. There are times that one image can take on so many forms that I find I struggle with what image I like the most. I guess that is the hardest thing for an artist to deal with and I beginning to think your first instinct is actually the best…. DON’T OVER THINK YOUR ART
The Garland District is becoming known for its amazing murals and yesterday I was so proud to have the opportunity to document another mural being added to the Art Alley in the district. If you like art, come to the Garland District and take a little time to travel the alleys of the Garland District and see the beautiful murals that make our community unique.
Yesterday, Daniel Lopez and other arts came together with a few of our local youth to created another piece of art. What I love is how he and other local artist give back to our community by teaching kids about art and involving them in creating something they can be proud of. At any given time, you will see photographers doing photo shoots using the murals as backdrops for many of their fashions shoots, it’s so nice to see how these murals are being used in so many different art mediums and bringing people to our area to enjoy the beauty of the District we all love who live here.
