Now that the weather is cooling down, and most people have sent their kids back to school, it’s the perfect time for people like me to think about vacation. Actually, half the fun of being a photographer (for me at least) is getting to travel to new places as an excuse to take more pictures.
Since the travel bug is biting me, I thought it might be fun to share some photos from our trip to the island of Corsica, where Napoleon was born. The whole place is rich with French influence and the local cheese and wine selections were amazing. I really enjoyed the architecture, and the amazing sunsets the most. This year, we’re staying domestic and planning a trip to the Pacific northwest. It should be an adventure for sure. I can hardly wait!
Some beautiful old buildings with shops and apartments along the streets of Corsica.
A marina full of sail boats nestled in a little bay on the edge of the island.
A really beautiful sunset off the coast of Corsica, as we were leaving the island. It was amazing to watch the sun go down over the ocean with nothing else obstructing the view.

A few weeks ago, I attended the diamond anniversary party for my grandparents. They’ve been together for 60 years, and are some of the spunkiest octogenarians I know. Like any woman, my grandma loves shiny things. I took this picture of her playing with the table decorations. Even when you’re 80+, diamonds are a girl’s best friend. :)
PS - I made grandma’s shiny blinged out corsage.
