Seeing in Black & White

“I think it’s because it was an emotional story, and emotions come through much stronger in black and white. Color is distracting in a way, it pleases the eye but it doesn’t necessarily reach the heart.” Kim Hunter I’ve been actively uploading my photos in my Instagram account for the last two weeks. I am…

One Day

Busy. If busy is not the most used word, what do you think would it be? Suppose that you are only given just one more day to live – what would you do? I think it would make a big difference if we were given the chance to know this in advance. The problem is,…

Picture Perfect!

In photography, it’s not enough that we have a good camera. Knowing how to use it properly is of upmost importance. I am a natural light photographer, so the time of day plays an equally important role. Luck and timing is needed at certain times if not most. But one that is not given much…

The Outerbanks

I have been here in North Carolina for sixteen years and it took me that many years before I could visit the Outerbanks and see the famous lighthouses of North Carolina. And I can tell you that it never disappoint. We left home at around one thirty in the morning to catch the first ferry…

Linville Falls

North Carolina is blessed with many beautiful sceneries…from mountains, beaches, falls, lighthouses and historical sights to name a few. On our trip to Grandfather Mountain, we decided to make a side trip to Linville Falls. At first, I thought, the falls will be a few steps from where we parked. Was I in for  a…

Oh Deer

It’s always been a dream of mine to capture deer up close while in the wild or in their natural habitat. I am so thrilled I finally had that chance!
