Chichen Itza

We visited two major Mayan archeological sites during our trip: Chichen Itza and Calakmul. Chicken Itza gets more tourists because it’s at a convenient distance from the resorts in Quintana Roo (Cancun, Tulum, etc.). Lots of vendors everywhere (and we

Birthday Girl

I’m missing my birthday girl this year. For the first time since 2019, she’s spending a couple weeks with her grandparents, working on her French and butting heads with her grandmother (hopefully not so much this time around). She’s got

Lazy Day Playing with Presets

I need to get into more of a picture taking habit. As it is, I ended up on Sunday with nothing. Chipmunks or squirrels or something ate the bulbs we’d put in planters on the roof so no flowers up

Spring Rain

Yeah, this title is pretty self explanatory. Spring flowers + rain = me walking through the neighborhood, taking pictures of the droplet covered blooms. Lighting conditions changed a lot while I was walking. Then, during editing, I just kind of
