rose hips


When the rose is faded,
Memory may still dwell on
Her beauty shadowed,
And the sweet smell gone.

That vanishing loveliness,
That burdening breath,
No bond of life hath then,
Nor grief of death.

‘Tis the immortal thought
Whose passion still
Makes the changing
The unchangeable.

Oh, thus thy beauty,
Loveliest on earth to me,
Dark with no sorrow, shines
And burns, with thee.

When The Rose Is Faded- Walter de la Mare



I’m back !

These are photos from my recent trip to New York City. I was lucky enough to visit in November, when all of the Christmas decorations and lights are up. It’s such a beautiful place, and I wish I could live closer. Or live there. There are too many photos to post all of them, but these are some of my favorites.  Enjoy 🙂

long exposure project


This was a really fun assignment to do. A bunch of photography classmates and I went on a hike at night to get the photos- hiking in the desert in complete darkness is not something I thought I would be doing for this class, but you gotta do what you gotta do. I learned a lot about how my camera works, and how to take long exposure photos. I especially love the shots of the city lights, and how all of the colors come together. Overall, I am happy with the results of this project. 🙂



For a class project on long exposure, a bunch of my classmates and I went on a hike. It was one of the best times I’ve had. 🙂 These are some non-long exposure shots that I took. I love the color gradient that the setting sun creates against the still blue sky.
