I can't believe I've gotten away from this for so long but continued to take amazing photos of my travels and life via instagram. Somehow it's just not the same as telling the story in pictures with words and people who come and go but memories that will last forever.
I've been evolving my photography, finally dabbling in DSLR when I can and when I have the patience. I'm never humble enough when trying new hobbies or new places. I enjoy getting lost in my own tenacity to overcome the obvious challenges and make myself good at everything I try. DSLR has definitely snapped me out of my comfort zone of point and shoot and made things come to my eye in a more meaningful way. Italy was an amazing trip and I'll never forget the beauty that I only saw in books but loved from the second I learned about the amazing art and history.
Here are a few gems from Italy 2015 when I got lost in a sea of gelato and my own artistic eye.
