Chihuly in the Garden

Chihuly in the Garden is back in Atlanta. I remember my first year in college, at Georgia State University, when Chihuly in the Garden first came to Atlanta. It was a good experience to see such synthetic shapes mix in with the natural elements of the garden. I was excited when they announced that Chihuly had chosen to do new installations this year and went with my parents. :)  We took lots of photos!

Amicalola Falls State Park

This weekend we spent the entirety of Saturday in North Georgia. Between rainshowers we hiked up the incline and then the subsequent 500 steps. It was good to get some exercise as life changes lately have cost me my usual exercise time.  The showers kept the temperature down and we got to enjoy some nice cloud cover and excellent water throughput on the falls.  Check out all the photos!

Life

Purple Haze

I’m reminded of the blessing of having a very multifaceted life when I look at my ring shots. Something about the moments I take at weddings and engagement sessions to focus on this little physical detail which encompasses at once the eternity of the promise as well as the earthbound nature of it’s whisperers.

Spring Birds in Roswell

Jeremy and I stopped by our friends’ Val & Sam’s home in Roswell this morning. One of my favorite things about their home is the forest in their backyard and the well appointed bird-attracting things that are everywhere within it. I brought my new lens in hopes that I’d get to use it and I was not disappointed.

Spring in Duluth

Winter always feels long and dreary here in Georgia. I always blame my South Indian genetics for why I feel the way I do about winter but really, who loves dead trees over greenery and flowers? Who loves blistering cold to balmy weather and short sleeves?

My husband that’s who.  Anyway, too bad Jeremy, victory is mine (for a few months)!

We went back to one of our favorite springtime haunts: McDaniel Farm Park. I got to do some long-deserved shooting.  Enjoy the flowers with me!

Providence Canyon

In the middle west of Georgia, just at the border of Alabama lies an unexpected geological feature. Canyons are rare in the southeast. Those that mimic the visual impact of a much larger western cousin, the Grand Canyon, are even more so. We went with our friends Val & Sam to explore!

See the photos!

The weather this weekend in Georgia was spectacular. We enjoyed a good hike up Sawnee mountain yesterday and today, with the temperature hitting 70, we spent a pleasant couple of hours at McDaniel Farm Park. Continue Reading

Sanibel and Fort Myers

Jeremy and I spent a week in December in Sanibel Island and Fort Myers Beach.  Those two beaches are a Florida treasure. I’ve been to all sorts of beaches around Florida: Destin, Clearwater, Miami, West Palm Beach, and Jacksonville. None of them were quite as amazing as the beaches of Sanibel and Fort Myers.

Short-billed Dowitcher

There was a lot of magic experienced on the beach today but this small moment in the reflected sunset was one of the best.  The dowitchers would run in everytime a wave receded to pick at the bounty that had been spread on the sand.

It was beautiful.

Ocala

It’s vacation time! On our way down to Sanibel Island, we stopped in Ocala. We wanted to go to Silver Springs State Park to get on a glass bottomed boat but because the lines were surprisingly long, we decided instead to rent a canoe  tomorrow and take a walk today.

Airborne

One of my favorite things about travel is the takeoff and landing. There’s something magical about experiencing everyday landscapes from the air. It’s also a great time to practice some iphone shooting and editing. Everything in this post was shot on an iPhone 6s and edited with VSCO.
