Yoruba people often say "Iya ni Wura," which means, "A mother is golden." Truer words have never been spoken about my mother. And it's not just because of her name. She's unstoppable force. I've seen a lot of mothers through the years but none of them can compare to mine.
I got bored one night, and I needed to try out some lighting so I stepped in front of my camera for the first time in a long time.
Dog Day Afternoon
I spent an afternoon in local dog park, hanging with some four legged friends. It's nice to just watch them at play.
It Hurts When It Rains
Deep tranquility Is its own insanity When I don't feel you near Deep tranquility Is the latest misery When I don't hear your voice The pictures on my wall remind me of what we had I lie awake at night wishing it could be I always thought these memories were gonna last But now they all float away Safe to say to say, it hurts when it rains
This Old Town
Street Photography is tricky exercise. On the one hand, it requires a lot of skill and focus but it can also be fun and whimsical. That's what I enjoy about it but learning to bring it all together is something that I am not very well practiced in. So this past weekend, I got together with a group fellow photographers to go on a walking tour of downtown Macon, GA and really try to hone my craft.
Is There A Doctor In The House
I come from a family of physicians. This summer was particularly special because my brother and my sister graduated medical school within weeks of each other. I was fortunate enough to graduate last year. It's been a huge blessing to know that we surmounted such an exceptionally difficult challenge. Here's to many more accomplishments!!
From Cambodia With Love
My brother just got back from Cambodia. He spent a lot of time in Angkor Wat and from his trip, he brought a few artisanal sculptures back from his trip. I took the opportunity to experiment with macro functions on my Tamron 70 - 300 Lens back in January. Overall, I'm pleased with results but I might need to experiment more with the Jade Singha to figure out how to remove some of the glare.
Sunset at Emory
A few weeks ago, I got to watch one of the most gorgeous sunsets I've ever seen. My friend Lily (aka my concert buddy) took me up to part of the Rollins buildings that I had never seen before. It's a balcony on the back end of the building from which you can see that Atlanta Skyline in the distance. I decided to use the opportunity to experiment with HDR photography. I had never done this style of photography before, so instead of having the camera bracket off the shots automatically, I ended up doing it manually using the bulb feature on my Nikon. For a complete novice at this style of photography, I think I did alright.
Hanging with Grandpa
My sister brought my neice and nephews by by to visit my dad. I had my camera with me, so basically, this happened.
Snow Day, 2014
Some shots I took while I was out and about during Snowpocalypse 2014
