Welcome to Miami (Part II)

Hello Everyone!!!

In my last post “Welcome to Miami”, I shared a few photos of Miami. What I didn’t tell you was that these photos were taken at the Miami Port. I was headed on a 7-day cruise!! Yes, I ‘ve been hiding that little gem for a while. 🙂

It was the most exhilarating and apprehensive feeling knowing that I was going on ginormous ship for 7 days to countries I have only seen on television, in magazines and other people’s photos… yes, I don’t get out much.:) Now before we get into the details of the trip, let me preface this post by stating that I get extremely seasick and always have since my first cruise at 9 years old with my parents. I vowed never to get on a ship ever again. Once again, at 22, I went on a smaller boat and decided to go to the highest deck and look over the side… I am sure you can finish that story :D. How did I arrive at the decision to take this adventure on?  I wanted to engage with other cultures and learn about  their history, discover new cuisines and capture as much on camera as possible.

So, here I am in the Port of Miami boarding the Carnival Glory and realizing this ship is where I will eat, sleep and party for the next 7 days while travelling to Mexico, Honduras and finally to the Grand Cayman Islands. Let the fun times begin!!

Now onto the photos!!!

Sayin’ goodbye to Miami….

Relaxation At Last: A View From My Car

Hello everyone!

I am officially back!!! Back from vacation in FLORIDA!!  Okay, so it wasn’t Miami or Orlando but Jacksonville is pretty cool. I have been a few times but not with a camera. A camera changes your perspective of everything. It was like visiting for the first time. Can you hear the Oohs and Awwhs… come closer to the monitor … Right there! 🙂

City Commuter: A View From My Car

Today’s Photo: City Commuter


Hi everyone! Today’s photo was inspired by the song Sk8er Boi by Avril Lavigne. My best friend’s daughter loved this song! She would play it over and over in her room while we sat and caught up on old times. It was quite a catchy song. I hadn’t realized after hearing it so often, I learned the words.

I haven’t heard it for a while now. Maybe she’s moved on. Tweenagers! 🙂 Now that I think about it, she’s definitely moved on to whatever is new and “hot”! 😀

The original photo was taken in color but I decided to convert it to b&w. I tried to bring out the textures a bit more but since I am posting from my phone I am not sure how it translates on WordPress.

Enjoy your day and see you soon!
