Visiting Honduras

Hello Everyone!!
While on our 7-day Carnival cruise, we stopped in Honduras for the day. I awoke at 6:30 am to get a photo of the sun rising. To my surprise it was extremely cloudy and clouds threatened an outpour of rain. I was a bit disappointed but the remainder of the day made up for that.  As we pulled into the port, we saw a partly sunken ship that must have been there for years. IMG_7025It was said that no one was allowed to snorkel in or around the ship without facing legal action as it was deemed a historical site.
After breakfast, the sun made an appearance but it still remained somewhat cloudy for most of the day. We visited an animal sanctuary and butterfly where I captured my favorite photos of the trip!

The only butterfly to stay still long enough to be photographed.

Before the Sun

Good morning! I awoke this morning with an urgency to get out and shoot. I grabbed my Canon and keys and drove out to a nearby field. This small part of the world seemed so silent and calm. And the inspiration came….

….And then I went back to bed.

Now that I am awake again, it’s time for a bit of fun! See you soon with more photos!


Beauty is everywhere…now go and capture it!

Sunset Palms

Hello Everyone!!

I am so glad that tomorrow is Friday! Aren’t you? This week has been a long and busy week at work but after 5 PM tomorrow, it will all be over. I am a bit exhausted. I can actually relax, sleep late, or both but I am too excited to sleep late. I will be spending the weekend taking photos. Sounds like fun? Oh yeah, baby!

Today’s photo was taken while in Florida last month. I was one of my favorites of the bunch and seemed fitting for this evening’s post. You can never get tired of a photo  of a sunset… well I can’t. I consider it to be Nature’s happy ending! Now if it were only Friday today… 🙂



One More For the Road

Jacksonville, Fl.

I was feeling a bit guilty for posting just one photo… so here is one for the road!

This photo was taken while in Jacksonville, Florida with the family. I tried to capture the sunset as best I could and quickly. It really was the last photo taken before the sun disappeared for the day.


Until we meet again….


Turn It On Already!!

It was 99° today! I opened the door to the balcony and it was a matter of seconds before I felt the sweltering heat. OMG! Back inside I went. A tall glass of lemonade and a bowl of cherries began calling me. Wow, how I love summer!

As I was going through my archived photos, of course while sipping on my cool glass of lemonade, I found this photo. This photo was actually taken in early Spring of this year. I thought it was a fitting photo for today’s post. I guess inspiration came early!

Stay cool everyone!


A Room With A View

Imagine this beautiful view from your condo? Even though it was very cloudy and about to rain… again; I could never get tired of this view. This photo was taken while scouting condos for sale. Oh no, I know what you’re thinking! I am not going anywhere. My brother’s mother-in-law is the lucky buyer in search of a condo.

As we browsed the different condos, I felt like I was on one those HGTV shows. I talked to the realtor like a pro. Who knew you could learn so much from Property Virgins and My First Place. It was too bad it was only the view you could fall in love with. 😦

Thanks for visiting! Stay tuned this week for the first guest poet from my new poetry series.



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! 🙂
