  20. Thanks for following my blog. I am not talented when it comes to photography, but maybe we both like the idea of introspection. Mine is more soul searching with words.

    Best,

  44. I am enjoying your gorgeous photography and appreciate your bio that we are all teachers and students. So true! I am a visual person as well – my dreams often feature a color, a lighting mood, vary from ultra chroma to b&w. I wish I could filter them out of my head onto film. In a way, photography captures that…. a moment in time or timelessness. Thanks for stopping by my dream world!

  45. “Our bodies are merely shells that house infinite love, wonder and creativity that the universe has given us” wow…! wishing you all the best laura..
