Choo Choos and Chew Chews

What's a weekend in Chattanooga without a stop by the Chattanooga Choo Choo? It was the first stop after a roadtrip from Memphis, and I loved the lingering Christmas decorations. Even though it was in the lower 70's, they still had the ice skating rink up and running! We grabbed lunch at the pizza shop on … Continue reading Choo Choos and Chew Chews

Adventuring without Traveling

I've been longing for a camera adventure, but I find it challenging to make time for one. I get home from work and don't feel like driving downtown, and my weekends are filling up with my (slowly) growing social life. Well, tonight after work, I took a short 10 minute walk with my camera and … Continue reading Adventuring without Traveling

The Golden Ratio and Beauty

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but why do we find certain things more beautiful than others? In some regard, it can all be boiled down to a little bit of math. Now, for those of you that aren't interested in a math lesson, please scroll down past the equations for how one ratio is … Continue reading The Golden Ratio and Beauty

Yakin’ the Day Away

I was planning a camera adventure downtown today in search of unique architecture, but plans changed when my friend mentioned kayaking! I was very tempted to take my camera on the water, but I didn't trust myself to keep it dry so I just got some cell phone pictures. I've been wanting to develop my … Continue reading Yakin’ the Day Away

Go to Overton, leave weighing over[a]ton

This is a quick post with cell phone quality pictures, but when I went to dinner at Babalu last night I realized how much I love the Overton Square  area in Midtown. There are so many unique and character-filled places (Local on the Square, Bar Louie, Sweet Noshings, Robata Ramen & Yakitori Bar, and a few yoga studios) … Continue reading Go to Overton, leave weighing over[a]ton

New City, New Adventures

I figured that the best way to get to know my new home is to wander around with my camera, right? I haven't ventured downtown for sunset pictures (the featured image is measly cell phone quality) or to capture the character-rich brick structures, but you can expect another post with those later on. For this … Continue reading New City, New Adventures

Mills and Creeks and Parks, Oh My!

I'm finding that cities known as old and crumbling have some of the best hidden gems. Crumbling buildings, rusty bridges and overgrown walkways have so much charm and a story all their own. When man made meets nature in a flawless way, it deserves to be captured. Mill Creek Park is a staple in Youngstown … Continue reading Mills and Creeks and Parks, Oh My!

Avoiding the Working World via Alaska

Alaska is bigger than Texas and they're not shy about that. That was a fact I learned in my 10 day stay. After 3 flights and great amounts of sleep deprivation, Anchorage welcomed me with it's unbelievable beauty. My cousin was the reason this trip took place, as she provided the invitation and housing (as … Continue reading Avoiding the Working World via Alaska
