2021 And Beyond…

I still have not been consistent at all on blogging. I get so distracted with so many other things I just forget about doing my blog. It has been 3 years since my last attempt LOL

Over this last year I had a lot of changes personally and professionally. One constant in all of this has been photography. At the end of 2020 I purchased a cargo van and designed and built a campervan from it. I still need to finish my short videos of the build on my IG account, but that is another task to be done… *sigh*. In building the van it has allowed me to be able to travel remotely to many places I love to visit and photograph. The ultimate goal is to be able to live remotely, in the places I like to be at, and spend extra time there enjoying those places while spending quality time there. This of course gives me a chance to photograph these amazing places and be able to share them and hopefully drive some income by selling prints, etc.

2021 New Year Trip

I was on the road for a month and hit 6 National Parks and a ton of other amazing places. The list of National Parks I hit was:

  • Big Bend National Park
  • White Sands National Park
  • Petrified Forest National Park
  • Joshua Tree National Park
  • Death Valley National Park
  • Zion Canyon National Park

I also spent 2 days exploring the Bisti Badlands in New Mexico at the tail end of my trip. I will be returning to that area on my next trip (I fell in love with the formations and how many photographic opportunities the place offers). It was my second trip there.

I’ll hopefully be more diligent about the shots I take on my travels and living in my van.  The shots here are samples from my phone. I’ll be following up with some specific posts on the different places I mentioned above.
