My sister asked me to help her with a Christmas gift. She wanted to spell the word LOVE with things found in nature. I told her I would help her(about a month ago) and I waited until now to take them. The L is two sticks stuck between rocks in a creek. The O is an old hay bale that is in a field. The V is a tree next to the creek. The E is an old fence in the woods.

Airplane Ride

My Uncle Greg said he needed an excuse to fly, well I wanted to give him one. With the leaves changing colors and the weather being as nice as it has been the past two days, I wanted to take advantage of this and get some pictures from the sky.

Leaves and Water

I was wanting to go to the creek near my house today to get some pictures of the sun setting in the creek. I ended up getting there too late... From what I have here, it doesn't seem like too much of a waste.. I especially like the black and white picture at the top.

Mari & I

I do not have any clue why it has taken me so long to put a picture of Mari and I on here. Maybe it is because I never had one of us that I personally took. This is one that I took while setting the timer on the camera so I could be in the picture.

Baby Jackson

I was out in the good ole village/town/settlement? of Bainbridge this evening to see my wonderful cousin Allison, whom I haven't seen in such a long time. My other cousin Lib was there too and so was her little chunk(Jackson). I didn't get my camera out of the car early enough to get some more pictures like I had wanted, but I am sure there will be many more opportunities to get some good pictures of him as he grows up(as if the kid needs any more pictures of him). Just kidding Lib, keep taking all those pictures; Mari loves to look at them.

Fall is Here

Well with Fall here and Winter on it's way, I am going to try my best to not be lazy and go capture some of the beauty of southern Ohio. The Fall Festival of Leaves is this weekend, and today is my last day of classes for the week, so I hope to get out and start shooting. Saturday we also have a chance for SNOW? This should be a fun weekend to shoot!

Pool Side Shot

Well I was just looking through more of the pictures I have on my laptop of my trips to Brazil, and I just kept coming back to this one. I am not completely sure what it is, but there is just something about it that I like a lot.

Brazilian Sunrise

Every morning Mari wakes up at 5:15 to get ready for school. She wakes me up around 5:30 to have breakfast with her. I sleep in their livingroom, but since she is the first one in her family to wake up, I go back to bed in her room when she leaves so I can sleep in a little longer. After breakfast, I went and laid down in her bed while she straightened her hair and did her makeup. She leaves the lights on until she leaves and then shuts them off when she is ready and tells me goodbye. Well normally I can go right back to sleep, but this time the bright orange of the sun rising had completely filled the room. Her white walls became a florescent orange. I immediatly grabbed my camera and took off for the balcony of her apartment. This is what I came back with.

Mais Brasil!!

I haven't had many chances to travel away from her apartment this winter due to her being in preparation school this year. Its ok though, I am fine here. The only thing is that I see the same scenery every day. I am not getting tired of it or anything, It is just that I like taking a lot of pictures and I feel that I have already taken enough of what i see every day. Here are just a few more from around her apartment.

Sittin alone in an airport.. No better place in the world?

Don't you hate early morning flights? There is never anyone else in there with you and if you are traveling by yourself, it can be awful. All of the places to get good food aren't open yet and you are stuck eating a hard dry bagel with frozen cream cheese and drinking coffee without anything in it. When you think about it though it could be worse. there could be a lot of people around where you can barely move around or even find a seat to sit in. That is exactly how my layovers are. They are always in the middle of the day and there is always so many people around that it is hard to find a place to even breathe. All of the food courts are open but there isn't an open table and the lines are so long that you just don't even feel like waiting. Later when the crowds die down and most of the flights have left, it begins to feel like morning again. The only difference is you are so tried. Tired of the wait and anticipation of the trip you are going on.


As most of you know, I have this new amazing person in my life. She is Brazilian and I have seen some amazing things since I first went to meet her family. I am sorry to say that I do not have pictures from the first and second trip on this computer to post for you so I will try to remember to do that when I get back home. I took a picture last night from the balcony of their new appartment in Sao Paulo. The city is so beauitful during both the day and night. I can not wait to bring my family down with me sometime because I believe it is like nothing else they have ever experienced.
