lowophoto_AnneFrank Quote
As we enter in to June, I think about what I was doing last summer. I had the privilege to plan and partake in Girls Camp. I went to Girls Camp as a Young Woman from age 12-18. I loved it. I became a better person because of it. I was able to draw closer to God and become more aware of nature and the wonders of it. I understood more fully what it meant to see nature as a temple. I found this quote by Anne Frank while prepping for camp. I read it all the time now. It reminds this home body to go outside and be reminded that nature is a cure for any ailments I may have.
Happy Summer, everyone!!

A few years ago I was able to take a short trip to America’s capital, Washington, DC. It was an amazing experience that I am grateful to have had. I grew to love my country even more after being able to tour such a beautiful city.

There were two places out of all that we visited that touched me the most. One of them was Arlington National Cemetery. It was the last place I was able to visit before having to board a plane back to Las Vegas.

At the entrance there is a sign that says “Please remember these are hallowed grounds”. I believe there are sacred places on earth. That we can find them when we need them most and when we stop to look for them.

Arlington National Cemetery is one of them.

There are rows and rows of headstones of men and women who died for the freedoms I am privileged to partake of.

There were a few times, despite the wind and the threat of rain that I was able to have a moment to see the peace, beauty and brightness that existed in such a place. I teared up a few times overcome with love and respect for such a place to exist.

Today I celebrate the greatest country on this earth. The privilege I enjoy to believe and have faith in what I choose; the ability to dream to the moon and back…..and succeed.

I also thank God for founding fathers and innovators who set a foundation that created a burning desire and will to maintain a country that begs for change, understanding, and freedom.

Did a lot more night shooting this trip to Disneyland.

Love this shot. More to come…and not just Disneyland other recent shoots coming too.

I love Disneyland.

Just a few shots from my last visit to the happiest place on earth.

I can’t wait to go back.

San Antonio is home of the Alamo!

It is right by the River Walk. I took a few shots while I was down there.

I love taking photos of people. I love the interaction with those standing in front of my camera. Cracking jokes and letting them see who I see through my eyes. But it is fun to sometimes force myself to find the shot without having someone in front of me. To see the beauty that isn’t always beautiful, or maybe is.

I wish I had more time on the River Walk. There are so many details I would love to shoot. Living in Las Vegas, there is constant change to get rid of the old and make it new. So I was in love with the old buildings, brick and chipped paint. It was great.

Here is a few shots from the street and river boat.
