Easy steps to creating your own photo adventure

Your Next Photo Adventure How-To

Posted by | Photography, Travel, Uncategorized | No Comments

Recently, as a team building exercise, we went on a Hole in the Wall Food Crawl, organized by our team leaders.  It was such a pleasant surprise and ended up being an incredibly memorable event.

The crawl included 7 gems we may have otherwise missed in the city.  Each had offerings of small portions we could try.  It was a great way to spend an afternoon, fill our bellies, hang out, and try a few new foods.  Crawling around the city also permitted for great photo opportunities.

With your city as your playground, we challenge you to plan your own photo adventure.  It’s a great excuse to get outside, spend some time with your faves without breaking the bank and snap a few pics with fresh inspiration. Read More

Posted by | Home Decor, Travel, Uncategorized | No Comments

With Summer in full swing here in the city, we’re suffering from cabin fever.  We’ve been dreaming of a rustic getaway, off the grid, in an eclectically beautiful cabin.  The idea of disconnecting from the world, with nothing but good company, a book to bury our noses in, a woodsy view and a good cuppa is so appealing right now.

The world wide web at our fingertips, we’ve just spent the better part of our morning daydreaming away and gathering some seriously good cabin porn for you to admire too.
