Exciting news! I’m going to be a full-time RVer!  Our official launch date is February 2020 with the East Coast being our first destination in our travel plans. We’ve rented a small apartment until then so we can learn all about how this whole RVing thing works.

March 2019 Wallpapers

Oaks and Azaleas, Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, Georgia

Happy Spring…at least here in Florida! The azaleas are in full bloom in the South.

Springtime in Florida is my favorite time of year. The temperatures are still cool, and there’s zero humidity. I travel as much as possible around the South during this time of year before the temps start to rise in May.

This month’s desktop wallpaper is from Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah, Georgia. I’ve tried several times to catch the azaleas in full bloom and finally had success a few weeks ago. The avenue of oaks leads to the older Victorian section of the cemetery where the most beautiful monuments and headstones can be found.

February Wallpapers are Here!

Happy February! The weather this time of year in Florida is spectacular and I try to get out and shoot as much as possible. It does dip down into the colder temps in January which brings the manatees to the springs throughout Florida. The temperature in the springs stays at a constant 72 degrees and the manatees gather regularly. We recently visited Blue Spring near DeLand and there were over 150 manatees in the spring that day.

I photographed this adorable baby with my iPhone and a polarizer attachment. I’ve been really enjoying learning to shoot better photos with my iPhone.

The Garvin House, Bluffton, South Carolina

This month’s desktop wallpaper comes from The Garvin House in Bluffton, South Carolina. The Garvin House is the earliest-known home owned by a freed slave along the May River, the home being built by Cyrus Garvin in 1870 with materials spared by Union troops when they burned Bluffton seven years earlier. Garvin most likely had been a slave of Joseph Baynard, whose plantation home stood on the site before being destroyed by federal forces during the Civil War. The home remained in the Garvin family until the 1960s. I really loved the aged wood and haint blue door.

Happy New Year!

I hope all had a wonderful holiday season and are excited for the New Year. I’ve got lots of adventures and projects planned for 2019 and I can’t wait to share them with you!

Can you believe this was shot on an iPhone?? I photographed the fireworks on New Year’s Eve at our local Fernandina Shrimp Drop. One project I worked on in 2018 was learning how to shoot better photos with my iPhone. I’ve really enjoyed learning iPhone photography and have managed to get some pretty cool shots.

This month’s desktop wallpaper is one of my favorite photos from 2018. I shot this from the back of the M/V Uncle Oscar while riding out to Star Island in the Isles of Sholes in New Hampshire. The boat was completely surrounded by the early morning fog and all you could see was the interesting wave pattern that was being created from the wake of the boat. Fortunately, by the time we reached the Island, the fog had started to lift and I was able to get some great photos of the nearby lighthouse and Gosport Village. I find this photo peaceful and relaxing, perfect for after all the holiday craziness.
