It’s Been Such Long Time

OLTL Readers… How I have miss thee so!

I am well and excited to start blogging once again. So much has changed.  It’s funny how life takes over and before you know…. years have passed. I had not been shooting as much as I would have liked during my hiatus however I have a renewed commitment to begin sharing my journey back to photography.  So many stories….



Blog Update

Hello OLTL Readers…

I have decided to take a break from blogging. I am not sure of the duration of my absence but hopefully I will be back blogging soon.

Thank you all for your support, kind words and also for sharing a bit of your world with me. Hopefully you’ll all be here when I return.

Much Love to my WP Family


Short and Sweet

Hello OLTL Family!!!

I have missed you all! I have been a very busy person the last few months. As I mentioned in my previous post, 2013 is the year of discovery and boy did I discover some things in the past few weeks. It’s been fascinating and I can’t wait to share my experiences and photos with you.

So stay tuned… Cause they are coming!!!


Headed Out of Town!!

It’s been a few days since my last post. I have been organizing my collection of photos I have taken in the last 2 months that have not been posted yet. Midway of this activity, I was asked to go to Boston…

This is my first trip to Boston as an adult. I have packed, jumped on the train and now I am on my way! I did take my camera, should I get a moment from all the meetings and work, I can take some photos of this historic town.

In the meantime, I will be visiting and reading blogs of bloggers that have left kind words and those who chose to join the journey.

See you all soon. Thank you all for visiting and following the journey!!

Much love ….


A Random But Interesting Find

Many times when I scout for photos, I realize that I have accumulated more photos than I need. As a result, it is sometimes difficult to choose which should be shared that day or not at all. For today’s post, I decided to go through previously taken photos and find some of the ones that didn’t make the posting cut when they were taken…. And here are what I would like to call my “random but interesting finds.”  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

This photo was actually taken today. I felt a bit adventurous and drove to Camden, NJ. My original destination was Trenton but somehow I veered off track.


I was drawn to the natural elements and waste that were either washed up onshore or discarded there. The different colors, textures and shapes made this an interesting and random find.


This photo is one of my favorites of the “finds” shown. I originally photographed this in color but after reviewing it on the camera, I thought it made a better black and white photograph.


Are You There Yet?

Are you there yet?

It’s been quite some time since I have posted.  It’s been a rough couple of weeks and I am now returning to my regular schedule and day-to-day activities. For the past few weeks have l have not been feeling well and as a result I wasn’t able to venture out. I really missed reading my reader’s blogs. But most of all, I missed posting and sharing my photography adventures (or lack there of) with you.

So now that I am back, I am not really sure where to start? I should be on Photo # 40 but I feel like I should start over… Hmm maybe I will stop numbering the photos…  Well, we shall see in a few hours as I will be posting my first picture since the 29th.

I really hope you all really enjoy it. See you in a few short hours.

100+ Themes and I Chose This One

“Oh I like this one and it has a multitude of colors that will be drawing to a reader’s eye.”

Hmmm… that was what I thought before I really began blogging. It’s been three solid months since then. I think I’ve learned a little bit more about the blogging world. I know you shouldn’t choose your theme solely based on how “pretty” it looks, it should also function for your topic, be user-friendly for your readers and lastly come with a sidebar. I actually know what that is now and regret that it has been missing from my blog’s life all this time. So, over the next few days, before I go back to work and become super busy with my other life; the one that is going to finance my new lens purchase, I am going to change my theme. I wish I was programmer and could create my own theme. Now that would be awesome!

Just Random Conversation

For the past few months I have been struggling with what seems to be nerve damage. The doctors have not come to a conclusive diagnosis but that’s what I think. Having nerve damage that affects the entire left side of your body is no picnic. It’s funny how you take for granted, the most simple motor skills, like walking or lifting a glass but when they are taken away, they’re the most appreciated. Out of nowhere, it just happened… I couldn’t feel my arms or my legs. My mom has another opinion. She says that I have been so consumed with work and caring about everyone else… I forgot all about me.

It has been rough, to say the least, to find doctors who actually care to diagnose you prior to pumping out the many prescriptions they’re convinced will help you. Whatever happened to the consultation part of the doctor visit; when the sit you down and really get to know you, not just what you wrote on the pages and pages of forms they have you complete on your first visit. Has that become passé and I missed the memo? Don’t get me wrong, I respect the profession to the utmost but I think the “doctoring” as my grandmother calls is it has long been forgotten. And that is not a good feeling. But in the meantime, I’ll continue to be optimistic.
