Sometimes it starts dumping rain out of nowhere here in thailand. being soaked and playing in the rain on the beach is one of my favorite things to do here.
thanks @justinreedolsen for being such a good model and for taking me climbing all the time. 🤙

There was so much mist in the air my camera was having a hard time finding focus but i was having a great time.

First time i hiked half dome i was ten (i had an ambitious mom). she was also pretty clever, giving us fanny packs filled with candy to coax us up the trail... it worked. #letsgoagain! #morecandythistime
I've been into yosemite numerous times and always jump at the chance to spend a day there. such was the case on thursday when a fellow photographer @cdswaffo from indiana came to discover our amazing state. two things i've always wanted to do, valley view at sunrise and hike to vernal falls... done! not only that, but chris pressed us on to nevada falls which was unbelievable! seven mile round trip (strenuous). so who's coming out here next?? #jimedavisphotofavorites#abc30insider#yosemite#valleyview
"the single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it." ~ansel adams
i have always loved taking pictures. it wasn't until i took a black and white film class in high school to discover how much i loved photography. then, i came across ansel adams and his work. i decided to write my senior paper on him and do my senior project involving photography and backpacking. this quote of his has stuck with me ever since. when i was looking for a camera, i would find myself asking others what kind they had or what they preferred.. as if the camera was the thing that made the person's photo interesting. it doesn't matter if you have a super expensive camera or just use your phone.. you are the person creating the picture. everybody has a different perspective. photography has allowed me to be creative and patient. sometimes you don't get the shot you were looking for but you spent that time trying. you learn. you do not need an expensive camera for photography. learn with what you have. go from there. i know i have the eye for it, i just need to put myself out there. i'm excited for this year to come. i have a good feeling.
