As a child I would always prefer picture books and National Geographic magazines. When looking at photos I would imagine being at that place. I would imagine one day traveling there even though I doubted I ever would. ┬áIn college I finally went ahead and bough my first camera,a Canon 7D. It was the best purchase I have ever made. For me pictures are an awesome way of capturing a memory but more importantly they are a great way of telling a story. Growing up poor, my only vacations were looking at photos of different places. Now I’m blessed enough to be able to go see those places and take pictures like the ones I gazed at many nights under the lamp in my room. I have done a good amount of traveling but by no means have seen everything that I want to! Below are a few of the places I have been, and some of the awesome memories of people I have met and the stories they have to tell! Enjoy
