This fall has been beautiful. The weather has been great and the leaves have been perfect. The colors are brilliant and it makes me so happy to live in New England in this time of year! Enjoying the fall sunsets also.
“On July 4th, 2014, the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center presents an experiment in cultural democracy – the first crowdsourced gallery of the Asian Pacific American experience around the world as lived on one day.”
What resulted is a beautifully curated collection of images representing slices of life in the daily activities of what it is to be an APA in this world.
I personally submitted some photos through my Flickr account, and got a wonderful surprise to find a couple of them included in the collection. The images were taken at Peyton’s 5th birthday party, what a wonderful way to commemorate him turning 5 and celebrating this APA day.
This little adorable guy turned one and little party was thrown for him. Of course, he probably won’t remember his birthday, but the pictures are here to embarrass him later in life and make others say “awwww…”
So it happened, wrapping up the year I spent exploring/practicing photography with my very first solo photography exhibit, and with just a little over two weeks to prepare for it! Had a great time, with staying up til 4 am trying to get things ready. The very talented owner at Salome The Design Gallery was awesome in creating a space that allows for local artists to exhibit their work. It is a lovely multidisciplinary studio in downtown Danbury, she really created an oasis of beauty there.
The fog was very heavy on this day, and by chance these canoes were floating on the lake so perfectly as I drove by so I grabbed my camera. I love how the fog hides all the development on the lake, making it seem so endless and mysterious, as nature intended.
