Something great about living overseas is the chance to explore something new. I had always wanted to see Aspen and Vail so we took a quick trip on the way back from Denver. Amazing! Here are my photos. Also a great open letter by the wonderful Carla Coulson about taking a chance.

I love taking photographs and making art, some of my favorite shots are just very simple and really a happy accident. Here are a few of my favorite object shots I love the vintage look so have kept them in this theme… Enjoy!!
My husband and I took a little weekend trip recently to South Dakota, another great state ticked off the list. First stop was the four presidents, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. Mount Rushmore in Dakota’s Black Hills National Forest is an iconic American monument led by sculptor Gutzon Borglum and completed in 1941. The sculpture is stunning, the sheer size and detail make you see why it is one of Americas most popular tourist attractions.Our next stop was Deadwood, a historic gold mining town famous for it’s interesting characters. We stop at Saloon No 10 for a drink, the rumor is Wild Bill Hickok was shot playing poker there. Wild Bills’s tombstone and Calamity Jane’s are found in the down town cemetery. We explored the historic towns sites and stop off at the legendary Silverado Franklin casino, they have a great buffet and I eat my weight in fresh crab. We stay at an amazing bed and breakfast called Coyote Blues B and B, looking over the snow covered hills it is like being in Switzerland. We wake up to the most delicious european style breakfast complete with meats and cheeses. I hope you enjoy the photos, I dedicate this post to Richard and Kylie who love the photos but want me to WRITE more………
Savannah Georgia is the ultimate creative city. If you love food, architecture and art you cannot miss it. The architecture from centuries ago takes you back to another time. The art galleries are just beautiful and feature traditional through to contemporary works. I loved the little sidewalk cafes and fabulous restaurants. Here are some photos that capture charming Savannah!
