Indianapolis: A City Full of Surprises

I love Indianapolis.  I love it so much that I tried to move there a couple years back.  Although the city is more like a big town, there seems to be so much to do.  One of my favorite moments is turning onto Meridian Street and seeing the range of architecture with the houses/mansions.  I…

Travel Inspiration

It doesn’t take much for me to be inspired to travel.  I daydream constantly of strolling the beach in the Cinque Terre or finding the perfect spot at a cafe and spending half my day there.  I’ve decided to create photo art to inspire those that might need a little more persuasion to travel.  I’m…

Travel Journey of the Week: San Fransisco

I’ve only been to San Fransisco once, and I don’t think I got an accurate view of the city.  I was very excited to go, but I just needed more time to really dig into the bay area.  I’d love to hear about your experiences in San Fran.  Here is how you can contribute: 1….

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You

This week’s photo challenge is a bit of a challenge for me.  We are supposed to pick a color that reveals more about us.  I have decided to pick photos that have a pop of color.  Right now I’m living for those moments that really shine and are big events.  The rest of the time…

Travel Journey of the Week: Florence

I regret not getting very many photos of Florence on my trip a couple years ago.  It was a city that many had told me was THE place to go in Europe, and it just overwhelmed me.  Now that I think back, it feels as if my two days there were a blur.  I’d love…

Jardin de Tuileries

The Tuileries garden is like a red carpet (or perhaps green) that flows from the Louvre.  One of my favorite activities in Paris is finding one of those reclining green chairs near a fountain, and plopping myself down for some period of time.  When I think about slowing down, and taking Paris in, this is…
