Some of you know me as a wonderlust.  I often say, if I ever won the lottery I would bless everyone I could then I would pack my bags and my family and start traveling.  There are so many amazing places to see and things to experience in this world.    I have  a “bucket List” a mile long.  This amazing river in Columbia is Call Caristales.  Enjoy these magnificent pictures and I challenge you to resist the urge to put your toes in this amazing river.  God is so a brilliant creator!


The river, world famous for its colorful display, has been called:

“the river that ran away to paradise”,

“the most beautiful river in the world”
and “the river of five colors”.

As I have been working through the healing of a broken foot, I have had more time than usual to study and read and sharpen my photography skills.  Sometimes when I get really busy I let my ongoing education fall to the back burner and get stuck in a creative rut.  Well, tell a photographer she has to be off her foot, literally for 2 months, well what do I do.  I could pound my fists and get made or, I can use this time to study, learn, teach and re-energize my creativity and my business.  one of the forums I love is http://chiccritiqueforum.com/.  On this forum you can not only learn a lot but you can engage with other professional photographers who have thriving businesses.  You can get critiques of your work and take classes on building your business.

I really love learning from other photographers and stretching my abilities as far as possible.  I want to continue to provide fresh ideas for our clients.  Check out Chic Critique for some great ideas and great education opportunities that are really affordable.

Just for fun see below, at least I picked a cool color and have sweet friends who will paint my toes to match the beautiful purple.

I met Christy several years ago.  This young girl showed up in one of my classes I taught at co-op.  She was giggly and sweet as a country girl should be.  She is a deep lover of Christ and focused on her future.  Christy brings a measure of joy and innocence into the environment when she is with you.  Over the years I have had the privilege to watch her grow into a beautiful young lady.  I am so proud of who she is and very excited to see what her future holds.
