Photography

I have loved photography ever since I took classes in high school. I am drawn to unique patterns, unexpected angles, and vivid colours, and find great joy in discovering beauty everywhere I go, whether it's in a different country, or in my own backyard. 

 
Mom's Garden   in Richmond Hill, ON - 2015  My mom's garden is always a joy to walk past on my way out of the house, as well as to photograph - especially when it's just been watered. I'll let the photos speak for themselves.

Chiang Mai, Thailand  In 2014, I had the opportunity to spend some time at   Elephant Nature Park   in Thailand where my volunteer group and I got to prepare food for and feed rescued elephants, clean their sleeping areas, and walk through the park alongside the elephants. Though now free from human cruelty, a number of elephants at the park still suffer from injuries after stepping on land mines, or having had their "spirits broken" through barbaric actions by previous handlers. The elephant photographed above is unfortunately blind, but is now free to live the rest of her life safe and comfortable among other elephants and humans that care for her.

Lake Atitlán, Guatemala - 2017  This past November and December, I had the chance to travel for 6 weeks. In that time frame, I visited Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Greece, and Turkey. I tend to get a little too into getting good shots while travelling that I end up spending more time behind my camera or my phone than I probably should. But looking at the results afterwards makes it worth it. The above photo was taken during sunset in Guatemala at Lake Atitlán surrounded by volcanoes.
