{i heart lighthouses}

15 Mar

hey y’all.

is anyone else experiencing spring fever?!! my goodness, i’m SO ready for warmer weather!!  …and getting a small taste it this past week has me feeling the excitement of new beginnings and gardening season and all of the other wonderful things that spring has to offer!

in the spirit of daylight savings time, i took a short drive and a short hike to a little area close by to where i live. which reminds me… i have much to update on. your fellow gypsy queen has moved… again. i’m living back in maryland, where i spent many of my years as a youth. lots of reasons brought about this decision, and i am happy to be back and i love being so close to the water again.

all that said, i can walk to the river in 15 minutes, and i can drive to this amazing place in that same time. i feel most alive when i’m close to a body of water {preferably the ocean – which is still pretty close!}, and so i am loving living in this space again! given the 60 degree temps this past weekend, i felt inspired to get out of the house and take a drive to watch the sunset over the water. i brought my camera, so i’m sharing some of my favourite images… mostly it was me playing around with a bunch of filters and edits. i really love lighthouses!

i have so missed blogging and i look forward to getting back into a more consistent rhythm with it!

thank you to my loyal readers and those of you that engage with my posts, send me messages, and truly care about what i’m doing, and my life, and my art, and all the things. it means the world to me and i am so thankful to be back doing what i love so much! i hope you enjoy these fotos.

{a little fun at sunset}

15 Jul

where i live, there are many trees that often block the horizon line at sunset. i have been eager to get to a good vantage point in the evening to watch the sun setting.

recently i took a stroll with a friend at a park nearby that overlooks the city. it was a lovely summer evening and the hike to the top was worth it.

we captured a few images while also getting immersed in the beauty of the evening.

i love this picture because it looks like there is a line dividing the sky… do you see it?!

i love jumping shadow pictures.

fun times.

{travel tuesday} – a sunset in carmel, california

21 Aug

what an absolutely stunning place – carmel, california.  monterey bay is equally as beautiful – they are almost one in the same.

years ago, when i was in college, i went to visit my dad in san jose, california – also beautiful, and also will be a blog post at some point – and i took lots and lots of drives along the pacific.  only twice now have i ever been to that region… but i tried to soak up as much as possible with each visit – particularly this time since i was studying fotography and wanted to use these images for my portfolio.  and i did – this one :


i am so thankful i got to visit this wonderful place… i miss the ocean a lot since moving back to colorado.  i’ve always been so drawn to it, to the water. i love the sound of the waves, the smell of the ocean air, the breeze from off the shoreline… mmm, i miss it.  the pacific ocean is pretty different than the atlantic, though… and i’m way more used to the atlantic.  if i remember correctly, i was surprised at how much cooler the water temps in the pacific were…

i digress.

here are some shots from that brisk may sunset in carmel : Continue reading

{travel tuesday} – atop the metropolitan museum of art, NYC

14 Aug

this was hands-down one of the most romantic nights of my life to date…

the weather was perfect.  i believe it was right around this time of year… i was on one of the best dates i’ve ever been on in my life — and it started with an amazing dinner at an amazing restaurant – i remember using the word “enamored” several times to describe the food…

then we went to an exhibit on top of the metropolitan museum of art… it was incredible… the view was something like this : Continue reading
