I have been missing in action on my blog for quite some time now. I have been very busy with work and also dating a special someone. My life over the past year has been very full and joyous. It has had a lot of ups and downs but has always meant growth.
I enjoy learning and growing every day. I have taken up photography as a hobby and am loving it. It brings me a lot of joy and happiness and also gives my significant other and I something that we can share doing together. I have always loved photography but didn’t own a camera that had lens that I could change out. So, after using my significant other’s old camera for a while I finally got my very own “new to me” Canon D50.
I am enjoying learning the art of photography every day and also meeting others in the photography profession.
On October 22, 2011 my significant other and I woke up to this beautiful and amazing sunrise. It reminded me how fragile life is but also how every day is a choice to make this day better than the last day.
The same things holds true for the City of Detroit. As I have been on my journey of exploring, learning, and growing…so has the city of Detroit been explored, taught, and is in the process of growing. Over the past year a lot of people and organizations such as TEDx, Ignite Detroit, Crain Communications, Compuware, Quicken Loans, Hatch Detroit, Detroit Design Festival, Open_Show, The Workroom, and many others have all played a role in bringing new hope to Detroit. I can see the difference shining through already. I can see the hope in everyone’s eyes that we WILL rise from the ashes, and that Detroit will be a great city once again.
I am so glad and feel so fortunate that I am here to be a part of it all.
