Happy Memorial Day!!! Going through some of my older images, I found this one. Can you guess what it’s of? It took me a while to figure out too. I even showed it to Andrew and he had no idea what it was of and he was standing right next to me while I was taking the picture. But to be fair, I took it in 2011 so it’s been a while. At first I thought the flags were hung together by string or that it might of been kites or something like that but it’s not… they are….


How fun is that? I completely forgot about this but I thought it was very appropriate for Memorial Day.

Thank you so much for all those who have served our country. You have made it a better and safer place for all of us to live today. And a special thank you to all those families who have lost loved ones for our country. I will be thinking of you today.

On another note, Andrew and I have arrived safely in Colorado and had a great time exploring Denver. Today we’re taking the drive down to Moab, Utah. This is the part of the trip that I’m looking forward to the most. Just driving around and making stops along the way to see more of our beautiful country. I’ve never been to Colorado or this part of Utah so if you want to see some behind the scenes stuff of our trip, check out my instagram story. I’ll be posting a lot on there.

This image was taken on my 5d Mark II at f10 at 1/30th of a second ISO 100. I remember it being close to sunset time so that’s why the light from the clouds aren’t too harsh. Just right to really show off the American Flags.

Happy Weekend Everyone! Hope you all had an amazing week. Here are so of the things you may have missed:

I came back from Ohio and uploaded a few images from the weekend.
Ohio had some beautiful sunsets, but the real reason why I was there was for the MidUSA Ohio Hot Air Balloon Challenge. Heres a nice one with the balloons in the sky.

Here’s my behind the scenes look behind my images:

Now that I’m back home, the heat wave has been seriously affecting my images. It’s hard to get a nice sunset or sunrise. So I figured I could go to one of my favorite spots for pictures and shoot the water at Great Falls. While I was there I ran into this pretty butterfly that I just had to capture.

This past week was amazing for my work:
I was in FamousDC for my Capitol Sunrise

And in HDR Spotting 3 times!!

Hope you all have a great weekend! 🙂

So you may be wondering why I went to Ohio. Well it all started a few months ago when I was thinking about my photography. I thought about the kind of images I wanted and how I could achieve them. For some reason, one of the first things that popped into my head was a hot air balloon festival. As my dad would say, I asked Mr. Google and he told me about the Ohio Challenge.

Who knew hot air balloons were so temperamental. Out of the three times that I went to the festival, I only really got to see the balloons fly once. The air quality and wind depends so much on the flight, it got a bit frustrating, but I’m glad I came out with at least one image.
