On this blue skied day, I am celebrating the arrival of summer. I look forward to this time of year to enjoy the longer days and more time outdoors.
I love the vibrant colors of summer, the bright blues, grassy greens, and sunny yellows.
Overall, it just makes me feel happy today.
Thinking about all of the great father's and father figures that I know, including my own.
Just a wish for a great Father's Day.
Keep doing what you are doing.
Happy Father's Day!
Inspired by the great mom's in my life.
I am very proud of my own mom, who has been an active part of my life. I wouldn't be where I am today with out her or the other "mom's" in my life who have been role model's of strength, all around beauty inside and out, and love.
I only hope that if I ever get the chance to be a mom that I could pass on the love and guidance that I have been given by so many.
Today, more sad news of cowardly acts, more innocent victims of senseless violence.
I am saddened and shaken by the news of these tragic bombings in Boston...where can we find peace?? Sometimes there are no words to express all that I feel.
My inspiration for this photo came from a week of decompression time with childhood friends on a quiet island. As the years go by it is not often that one gets this opportunity to spend quality time like I did this past week. I really enjoyed and appreciate the time and will cherish the memories.
It was also a great way to rejuvenate my mind and creativity.
As I mentioned before sometimes creativity comes from stepping away.
Does time away help your creativity?
A rooftop view on a snowy day in NYC.
It has been a very snowy, slushy, messy day on the streets of NYC. It's the type of day you wished you didn't have to be anywhere, so that you could day dream and watch the large snow flakes fall from inside your warm home. Unfortunately, today was not one of those "stay at home" type of days.
Commuting and sloshing around the streets and subway could not be avoided.
However, I had the opportunity to witness this distant, snowy view of the WTC from the rooftop area of my new office space. I love experiencing views of the city. I appreciate the views even more under various weather conditions and/or at different times of the day. Elements like bright sun, grey clouds, lighting, snow and more add a different feel and mood to the scene.
I hope this photo captured the serene mood of the afternoon.
As much as it is a holiday tradition to decorate and put up a tree for so many, so is the ritual of taking down the decorations from the tree. I am not as fond of this ritual as I am of the decorating one.Read More
The timely snow fall this year has made the holiday season extra special. Being in downtown Cleveland with the fresh snow, my family and friends was extra special. Looking at the lights and the snow reminded me of the annual car rides my father would take us on as kids to see the holiday lights around the city. I tried to capture one of my memorable moments.
The season goes by very quickly. It is nice to take a moment to take it all in.
Thanksgiving day. A day to think about all that I am grateful for in my life.
Today it is for the peaceful time I had with my family out in Idaho on the Payette Lake.
I love NYC where I live. However, I really appreciate the calm of nature and miss the peace that the surroundings of nature brings.
I can't believe it is that time of year again. Where does the time go and why do I continue to choose to live in a place where it snows. I do not even like the cold weather or winter. :)
I wanted to capture the first snow of the season.
A photograph taken from the rooftop of my building on 14th Street in NYC after the lights went out during hurricane Sandy.
It was a very eerie feeling after the storm.
The streets were empty and silent. Only emergency vehicles with flashing lights patrolled up and down the street through the dark night.
In preparation of hurricane Sandy, the Apple store took some precautions. Took some pictures of my neighborhood while walking my dog before the storm.
A nice, colorful surprise outside my apartment window on an otherwise rainy, cloudy day.
Exploring different parts of NYC with friends. Photograph taken while walking along the High Line.
