My Easy Is Not Your Easy

Can you believe we are just four days away until we begin the new year? New beginnings. Renewed hope. Greater possibilities. Perhaps, a deeper understanding of pains, failures, disappointment and everything that is not easy. A few weeks ago, I read a post about how people compare our pains to theirs or theirs to others….

Linville Falls

North Carolina is blessed with many beautiful sceneries…from mountains, beaches, falls, lighthouses and historical sights to name a few. On our trip to Grandfather Mountain, we decided to make a side trip to Linville Falls. At first, I thought, the falls will be a few steps from where we parked. Was I in for  a…

Clusters

I am having a hard time writing a well thought of blog lately. Maybe in a few days, It’ll be easier for me to express my thoughts and feelings. So for now, I am letting my photos do the talking. Hope you enjoy!

Hummingbird

Several weeks ago, I waited outside in the cold to capture this tiny and yet beautiful creature. For almost an hour, I played catch with him. For some reason, he seems to know when I am distracted with something else and not looking. What else is there for me to do, but….to play along. Allow…

Scary Fun Shoot

Last night, I had the privilege of shooting at the opening night of Snow Camp Outdoor Theatre’s, Haunted Forest. I had to walk through the whole scare to take photos and to say that I am scared of what’s to come is an understatement! At one point, I had to announced that I was there to…

Experts say that we should let ourselves grieve. And that the best way to help others that are hurting or grieving is to acknowledge their pains and sadness. No need for exchange of words, but just to be there even in silence helps someone who is hurting or grieving more than telling them to “get…

Go Where Your Heart Is

It’s been a while since I’ve been out with my camera. In fact, I have not been proactive in promoting whatever I started. I can’t tell you exactly why, all I know, at some point in my life, I don’t feel like doing photography for a business anymore. When I first started, I’m doing it…

The Journey Changes You

I started this post July 6 of this year. Then I started two more and quit. So now, I have three drafts that are waiting to get done. Some days, I would sit and try to write but then I would end up staring at the screen and feel like…dead inside – well not really, …

True Colors

When I started blogging ten years ago, it was an outlet for me to express my thoughts and emotions, hence I called it Pondered Thoughts. Ever since I was a little girl, I was not talkative. I choose who I confide to and it will take months or years before it happens and a lot…

It’s All In The Details

We have had the privilege of visiting the Library of Congress last Saturday and the details from the outside of the building, all the way to the interior design, is just outstanding! Can you imagine how much work went into completing such meticulous designs? Which makes me wonder, how much work does God set aside…
