Coastal Carolina

If there is one thing that I am thankful, it’s my ability to see something and then capture it on camera. To me, photography is not just having a camera in hand and having the capability to point and shoot. There is more to photography than meets the eye. It is seeing something that is…

The Outerbanks

I have been here in North Carolina for sixteen years and it took me that many years before I could visit the Outerbanks and see the famous lighthouses of North Carolina. And I can tell you that it never disappoint. We left home at around one thirty in the morning to catch the first ferry…

Sweet Blooms

North Carolina is blessed with many beautiful sceneries…from mountains, beaches, falls, lighthouses and historical sights to name a few.

Oh Deer
