DROPLET kind of weekend.

Mt. Tabor Hike overlooking Portland City.  The trails were simple and coded by colors and arrows to lead you on your journey.  My friends and I went on the Green arrow trail.  Total of 1.7 miles roundtrip.  VERY Easy hike if you up for a chill kind of hike.  Colors and arrows more simple than remembering the trail “NAMES”.  It was a droplet kind of day.  Macro shots of droplets on Dandelions, Clovers, and spider webs which look like string droplets.  Way cool with Macro-eyes for the hike.

The PDX view from Mt. Tabor. Sooo MUCH greens.

Hope your Wednesday is going well thus far!

Sunbursts and Water Glistens

First time just focusing on the water glistening and enjoying the sunbursts. Second time at Cannon beach and this was exactly what I pictured.

I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I did while capturing them.

Farewell until next time. T2



Post work training. I was breathless–not enough oxygen and taken more away by the colors of the sunset. and this is why i look forward to my training sessions every time running around Hillsboro. It has not gotten old yet. The way the colors radiates and is so vibrant, with some tree silhouettes. Looooove! I was so sore and I had to keep going. The hills were a killer.. It’s ok I keep telling myself “train hard now and my run for HTC will be easy Peezy and ill thank myself after its all said and done” !





Have a great Friday and I hope your fitting in your daily workout…go create some endorphins in that body!!!

Water Reflections


Water reflections of Haystack rock, woman waling her dog, boy walking/running in the water, and mother walking with her little baby.

While relaxing on the beach I was capture the moments of reflection of people enjoying themselves on the beach with the water washing up on shore.  Peaceful and enjoyable!  Happy Tuesday.  do you love photos with reflections in them?

Have a great Tuesday and I hope your traipse is as joyful today!

Laurelhurst Park

There are plenty of parks here in Portland. Laurelhurst is one of the few I am in love with. A park filled with green grass, a pond filled with ducks with intricate details of outer appearance, picnic tables, basketball/volleyball court, soccer field, unleashed dog area, and many more. A pet friendly park and family/friends can come together and enjoy the recreation and what it has to offer! In the 1980s the PP&R tried to rid the ducks from the pond due to murkiness look of the pond. It was unsuccessful and here the duck stays! Whooo hoo. My day spent here was with mutual friends of my half and I from Miami: Elena and William. William is a film/photographer. We went picture galore at this park. Here are a few to walk you through my day at Laurelhurst Park.  RAW shots with very minimal editing.  All natural blur from the D80.  Natural lighting is the best shots.  I went picture galore with macro shots.

The fuzzy balls caught my attention.

Overflown tree. Love its features.

Summer shot, but felt like a Christmas–maybe the fern made it so.

Spider making its web. Fascinating!

Bee pollinating on the hot pink daisy.

Pond filled with Mallards.

Mommy & me feeding the ducks.  This was a must capture.  I admire something so simple can excite these little ones.

Elena and Will, friends from home.  Always great to have a buddy go picture galore with ya!

The shadows of light bouncing on the leaves.

Brick pathway into the wilderness.

Come visit this park if you are ever in Portland! Especially the summer to have a relaxing picnic, a run, walk in park with your dog, or feed the ducks.  They will appreciate it.

Happy Labor day weekend! Catch up with ya later.
