Identifying Self: Part 1

Sometimes a moment in a photo can explain a feeling the viewer can only guess. It is times like these that one may wonder what those feelings were, and how relevant it is to their environment. In the course of thinking, and the revolving ideas that run through the mind, the imagination tends to run from one point to another. Whereby, it ends up resembling the bond that the photographer and viewer may share. However, the subject may not, because there is something different running through their mind. Stories are usually told within a photo in order to make sense of the persons world, which would be featuring the self as a character. Image of the self explains many things, from the face expressions to the attire, is what depicts the details that are available for investigation by others. I am usually the one behind the camera, capturing those "decisive moments" but now I share with you my moments that someone else has captured for me. 

All photos were taken in Buffalo New York at Delaware Park.
Smiling for Buffalo, the city that many despise but I appreciate and support. 

Nature never looked this good.

I give thanks to Alee Chery for taking a chance to photograph my moments, with a camera that was brand new to him. It was a wonderful day to explore and see new things as well. I hope you enjoyed viewing these photos of the lady behind the camera (Me), be sure sure to leave a comment, and also check out Alee's blog AC Apparel at aleechery.blogspot.com.

Have a blessed day, and keep coming back to see whats new.

What a beautiful day chosen to take a hike at Zoar Valley out in Cattaraugus County. A few of the members from the yelp community spent about three to four hours hiking around the valley, crossing many mini falls, rocky buttons, flowers, berries, mold on trees and strange barks/roots. It was an exciting and fun filled day of walking under the sun, as well as site seeing. The group mingled, shared funny stories, and got to know each other a little bit. Theres nothing better than just spending a saturday afternoon with some good people, and just enjoying the wonderful weather of the day.

When you see this sign, respect it or go home with $275 fine.

Even in the middle of nowhere, there is support KONY2012.

Strange things do exist.

Then there are beautiful things like these.


Oh lonely tire, left behind.

It is what you think it is.

As always, I hope you enjoyed looking through the set of photos for this new post. Have a blessed day, and be sure to leave a comment, it is very much appreciated.
