Readers, would you indulge me a slightly off topic post? I promise there is some fun travel goodness in this post about my bedroom makeover!
This summer I was pretty busy with jaunts to Colorado, Iceland, the United Kingdom, Myrtle Beach, Martha’s Vineyard and more. You might think when I wasn’t on the road I’d be kicking back and taking a break. But as my good friend Michelle pointed...

I love a good internet meme, like the ABC’s of Travel, or the Capture the Color contest. It’s fun to see what other bloggers come up with, to get tagged, and to add your own contribution into the mix. If you’re an avid blog readers chances are you’ve also seen My Seven Super Shots, the meme that lets bloggers reflect on some of their top photography. And if you’re me, chances...

My video One Week in Iceland was my first ever attempt creating a land-based travel video. For those of you that don’t know, I’ve worked as an underwater videographer in the Cayman Island and in Thailand, so I have tons of experience with filming underwater but not much with filming above it!
I love the editing process (I use Final Cut Pro) but often when I’m on location I’m so...

I think I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time in my life thinking about color. First I went to art school and spent years mixing the perfect shade, breaking it down into pieces and putting it on a chart — sometimes literally. Then I became an avid photographer and underwater videographer and chained myself to my computer trying to find the perfect color balance. And don’t even get me...

Forty years ago this summer, my maternal Grandmother traveled from her home town of Decatur, Illinois, to explore the islands of Greece. The year was 1971 and she had lost her husband the winter before. She traveled with two couples, and took a very similar route to the one that my Mom and I (her daughter and granddaughter) took this summer.
As I was planning my own trip and found out about the one my...

So, I’m really stretching the limits of this Photo of the Week project. First, I retroactively changed one of the photos. Next, I took a still from a video. Now, I’m not even trying to pretend I took the picture.*
But I’m okay with it. What started as a technical photography project has become more about documenting the amazing year I’m having traveling the world. If that means...

As you all know, graduation parties are about more than just cakes, balloons and invitations. They are also about taco buffets and balloon photo shoots. Just kidding. There’s also the details like hanging out with your friends and family who traveled miles and miles to be there.

My Grandma, all the way from...

One of the best things about graduating and leaving for a big trip is the party you get to have first! And this was no ordinary graduation party. This was both a graduation celebration and a bon voyage party. When we started sending invitations I didn’t really stop to add up the numbers but in the end we had over 60 of my nearest and dearest coming to wish me well and say goodbye. I was surprised how...
