When I travel, I am often seen taking pictures of what must seem like random things to other people. I stand six inches from wallpaper or get down on my knees to catch the perfect angle of a fallen leaf. This summer, I visited Nevada a couple of times. These pictures were taken in The Silver Legacy Hotel & Casino. The Starbucks barista did look at me a little funny when I took a picture of the cup sleeves, but I’m glad I did.
Here is a sample of what you can do with these photos:

We decided to take advantage of the early spring weather and head for the beach this weekend. The kids spent hours playing in the surf, as I huddled under my 50 layers of sun protection. Hey, I’m not half Italian, I’m all things pasty. My Italian father-in-law did poke fun at my hat, sunglasses, long sleeves, sunblock, and umbrella. Don’t worry, I rocked the look. Anyway, 1:00 PM on a bright day is not the ideal time to take pics, so I decided to capture some silhouettes using the glare from the water. This is my favorite:
A few years ago I had the opportunity to stay at a magnificent beach house on Sunset Beach. I woke each morning to watch the dolphins play in the surf from the picture window and each evening I took a stroll by the trees that would frame the ocean. I hope someday I can go back. (more…)
I was organizing a few photos and ran across this one from last summer. In addition to writing, I am passionate about photography. I just wish I had a little more time to practice. Anyway, this was captured in an animal park not far from the coast of Oregon.
