Going Home

When I was growing up, I lived in a very small town and I couldn’t wait to get out of it. 18 couldn’t come soon enough. But after I left I noticed something that I never had before. My hometown is beautiful. I suppose it took some miles between us to notice little things like that.

Amanda Salinas: Wannabe Photographer?

Amanda Salinas has carried a camera around with her sense she was 15 years old. She realized a film camera really did limit her and she wanted to learn more.

A New Perspective: Photography of David J. Lew

David J. Lew is a photographer. He was born in San Juan, Argentina, but currently resides in Tel Aviv.

David’s love for visual arts paired with his introversion naturally lead him to photography. Landscapes, nature and architecture are among his favorite subjects. He enjoys  photographing people, mostly when he doesn’t have to socially interact with the subject. Photography, as an outlet, allows David to express himself and the way he see the world.

Storm cloud starting rolling in again around 6:30 pm.

And it got super dark…

Around 9 pm the sky cleared up and a rainbow came out. I don’t have pictures of that though.

It was a mess. But everything is cleaned up and all is well today. Read the whole post
