    #fbf Plane Views

    I love photos from plane windows. They rarely come out bad unless the wing of the plane is blocking a gorgeous part of the view or you get your reflection in the window. But oftentimes, you get really good photos. I thought I would do a Flashback Friday, #fbf, post highlighting this photo I took on my way home from Toronto back in May. I love this photo because of all the green hills and the windy river cutting through. Most of all I love how the clouds are just dappled over the landscape. Like someone just sprinkled dollops of clouds overhead. I don’t know where this photo was as…

    Photo Challenge: Place in the World

    Happy Friday! It may almost be the weekend, but it’s actually the start of a very busy week (or two or three) for me. I have 3 weddings to go to in the span of 4 weekends plus lots of wedding related events and other social events to go to during the weeks. Oh yeah and regular/work/personal things to get done. Hopefully I don’t completely burn out! But let me take one thing at a time so as to keep myself from going crazy – starting with today’s photo challenge response. The Daily Post’s photo challenge last week was “Place in the World“. I decided to use a photo from…

    Photo Challenge: 2017 Favorites

    I can’t believe it’s the last Friday of 2017! I just got used to writing 2017 down. The most recent Photo Challenge from The Daily Post is “2017 Favorites” I’m writing this post in advance as I’m traveling. Since I am traveling, I might have a new favorite 2017 photo, but I’m using a photo from earlier this year to commemorate a favorite moment of mine from this year. I love this summer evening photo I took at The Craig House when I did my first ever professional photo shoot for my blog with Jaye Kogut Photography. It was so fun, despite it being extraordinarily hot and humid that evening. As…

    Photo Challenge: Elemental

    Last week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post was “Elemental” and the example given was of the red rocks in Sedona, Arizona. It was a great example of the elements. I went to Sedona for vacation a few years ago, but I didn’t want to do the exact same thing as the example. So I thought about other landscape photos I had that were good examples of the earthly elements. I decided to go with this photo I took from outside my hotel at the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge in Alaska last summer. There is such a great mix of different elements here. The wild flowers, earthy rocks, river, evergreen…

    Photo Challenge: Landscape

    Friday at last! This week has felt ridiculously long. I feel like my spring break was ages ago! For this week’s photo challenge, “Landscape“, I chose a photo (or two) from my vacation last year in Arizona. I went to Sedona, Arizona last year and on my day trip to the Grand Canyon we made some little stops. One of the stops was to Wupatki, a national monument between the Painted Desert and the ponderosa highlands of Northern Arizona. At Wupatki, you can see settlement sites of the Ancient Pueblo Native Americans. It was truly fascinating and as amazing as the landscape is to look at today, imagine what the…

    Photo Challenge: Change

    I’m happy to say that Friday came quick this week and I’m not going to complain about that! So as with every Friday, I’m sharing my response to The Daily Post’s weekly Photo Challenge. This past week’s challenge was “Change”. I was completely inspired by the photo they chose to use as an example, which was a photo of the mountains at Denali National Park. The expansive range form their own weather systems and as they explain it can look stormy at one peak while another peak is basking in the sunlight. This reminded me of the red rocks in Sedona, Arizona and how I could see so far across…
