Cascais, Portugal, 2005. The public walkways in Portugal's main cities are beautifully inlaid with mosaics using a technique originated in ancient Mesopotamia and used by the Ancient Romans and Greeks. The designs lend an air of sophistication even to the most ordinary alleyways. #travelphotography#portugal#cascais#recoverytakestime
I didn't really enjoy living in Missouri (I'm far too Floridian in both personality and culture for the Midwest), but it did afford me opportunities for experiencing winter weather. A sudden ice storm in 2007 left the parks in Springfield looking like a chilly fairyland. #travelphotography#icestorm#recoverytakestime
I'll never forget seeing the Grand Canyon for the first time. There just aren't enough words in the world for some experiences. And how on earth can a photographer capture it? It's impossible. This is why travel matters - because some places have to be experienced to be believed. Photo taken from the South Rim, August 2011. #grandcanyon#travelphotography#recoverytakestime
It's been 2 weeks since I came home from the hospital, and since I'm still homebound for now I'm virtually traveling back (via photos) through all the beautiful places I've been privileged to visit in the past. This photo was taken during my trip to Prince Edward Island in June 2015, in the harbor town of Naufrage. I can't wait for the day I can visit the island again! #princeedwardisland#photography#travelphotography#recoverytakestime
Wishing a happy Mother's Day to my amazing, fun, wonderful Mommy! I miss my great-grandmother, Bepa, and my grandmothers, Mo and Grandma, but I'm so glad they were in my life and created a great heritage for my family. #mothersday
Positive aspects of surgical recovery time: 1. Spending time with my family 2. Rewatching old favorites like the 1995 Pride and Prejudice and the 1980s Anne of Green Gables 3. Finishing all the books I've been halfway through for ages 4. Getting very excited over small victories like being able to walk around the block once without resting!
