Nepal, Day 2 — Up for the day…

It’s morning of Day 2 in Nepal. I slept through the night and am more awake now, yeah! Let’s see, what notes can I remember about yesterday? Nepal’s electricity is generated by hydroelectric power. The amount of electricity is limited by how much it rains each year in the country, and how much melting snow…

Nepal Day 1 – Kathmandu Durbar Square

I am honestly too tired to write much tonight. The plane was delay in Istanbul for five hours. We finally reached Kathmandu around noon local time. Were picked up by the hotel staff, made it back to the room. Met up with Talim Shrestha (drove for my friends who used to live here), then visited…

Greetings from Turkey!

My friend and I have met up at the Ataturk airport in Istanbul, Turkey –YEAH! We have found a couple places that have free and cheap wifi, too. That has helped us cope better with the five hour delay in the last leg of our trip. I don’t have much to share now, am just…

And the trip begins!

In a few hours I’ll be setting off on my trip back to Nepal. If you’re interested, here are some photos from my previous trips: Nepal collection on Flickr. On my trip to and around Nepal, I will likely have only limited time on the internet. I’ll be writing about the trip, but will most…

360 spherical image: Gray Thursday

Wow! I had a fun time photographing the Gray Thursday shoppers literally camped out in front of the Killeen Best Buy! Well, they were an interesting group, anyway. 😉 Below is a 360 degree spherical image I let them take with my Ricoh Theta 360 camera. These images are best viewed full screen, zoomed out…

(This is) My Dog Creed

(This is) My Dog Creed This is my dog. There are many like her, but this one is mine. My dog is my best friend. She is my life. I must care for her as I must care for my life. My dog, without me, is homeless. Without my dog, I am hopeless. I must…

My New Flyer!

I’m excited to finally have time dedicated to photography! As an army family we are constantly on the move. Quite often I’ve been overwhelmed with new transitions and competing priorities. After this move, I’m dedicating more time to my passion — photography. Finally! With that in mind, I’ve created an new advertisement to be placed…

Remembering President Kennedy, 50 Years Later

This time lapse film was shot from around 12:00 pm — 1:30 pm EST, November 22, 2013, fifty years after President Kennedy was assassinated. When I shot this video, I lived right next to Arlington National Cemetery, and my husband was serving with The Old Guard. The Old Guard soldiers played very important roles throughout the…

Black and White Portraits – Three Generations

I started with black and white photography in the 1980’s, simply because it was easier and less expensive to work with in the darkroom than color processing. Once digital photography was introduced to the masses, everyone was able to take photos with their point-and-shoot cameras, their cell phones, and now their personal tablets. Photos are being…

Remembering…

Sometimes good photos happen by accident, without a plan of capturing them in the first place. They are even more special when they catch a moment in time, keeping it alive in our memories. This is what motivates me to keep taking pictures — capturing those moments. I have been married to my Army husband for 23…

The Digital Darkroom

My love for photography actually started when my father built a darkroom in 1983. I learned how to develop black and white and color film. I mixed the chemicals, kept them at the correct temperatures (more important with color negatives), used our Beseler enlarger to print images on different types of photographic paper. I can…

Another Lovely Cattle Photo

This is another test post, placed here to help me manage the images in my header slide show. Interestingly enough, the group of cattle I photographed outside the gate at Fort Hood has provided me with some true Texas inspiration! I’m also loving how the infrared images are turning out, when processed as fully black…
