It always fun to spread a little love around.

I’m a big fan of free stuff.  I’m subscribed to all the daily emails of the “deals” in my area.  Mostly they get annoying, but I can’t un-subscribe from them because then I might miss out on a totally awesome deal.  Every once in a while a favorite restaurant comes up and although its not free, it is a great way to save some money.

This deal here though? Totally free.  I’m going to give away to two (that’s right 2) lucky people an 8×10 print.  It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, everyone is eligible.  These are the prints to choose from.


Favorite shots from around the world.

African Elephant (Taken at the Kruger National Park)


Green Bottle (Florida, Courtney Campbell Causeway)

undefinedFlour Mill (China, Longmen Ancient Village)undefinedDrums (Show in Ybor city)undefinedMonastery In the Sky (China, Shanxi Province)undefined**All you have to do to be eligible to win is leave a comment on this blog telling me which photo is your favorite and go and ‘like’ my facebook page here.  You must do both.  Contest will be open from today (Monday) through Friday and I’ll randomly draw a winner on Sunday the 22nd of May.  The lucky winners will receive their prints from me in the mail, no strings attached.  And remember two people can win, and this is open to everyone, no matter where you are in the world, so let your friends know.

Great idea to do a giveaway, Ashley! The Monastery In the Sky is such a beautiful photo! So dynamic.

Pretty sure you know me :) But I think I saw the drums in ybor still awhile ago when I first met you and I was like OMG! I remember when I first met you and you were like I'm a photographer then I checked your stuff out and I have always been a raving fan! I have liked your page and share it all the time. Then I'm like HAVE YOU SEEN HOW HOT SHE MAKES ME LOOK!?!? And I try to get my friends to hire you by dropping your name showing the photos. You are awesome and wish you the best!

Hi Ashley, I have been watching your posts for a while now and you are really doing a marvelous job...you have really developed your skills. But I really like the monastery in the sky, I don't know how you shot this picture but it is absolutely fabulous.

Hey Ash! hard choice but I love african elephant. Does it up my chances if I tell you I'm too poor to buy any house decorations?

I am loving my Koi in the pond picture every day.Lisa

Table Mountain
We've been talking about it since we were here last year. You can see it from anywhere in Cape Town it's so big (and everywhere else is so flat). It really is the icon of South Africa, and I can just imagine the first Dutch settlers seeing it on the horizon and deciding to come here. A huge plateau protruding out of what is relatively flat land. We've been waiting for a clear sunny day on the weekend to do it, and I'd been checking the forecast all week to make sure it wasn't going to change. When we woke up on Saturday morning we checked the mountain from our window and saw just a few clouds wisping around the base, not enough to keep u ...
 "Things change. And friends leave.  Life doesn't stop for anybody."  -Stephen ChboskyI'm doing it again.  I'm writing a sentimental blog about leaving a place I've come to know as 'home.'  My collection of "homes" is becoming more extensive, and not in the billionaire sort of way.  More in the homesick sort of way.  Places I've been where I've had a community, laughed, made lifelong friends, cooked meals, cried, and moulded my life into.  A place I am going to miss so much I will feel sick over it.  Florida is now one of those places that holds a little piece of my heart.  And it might be the hardest place to leave yet.I can ...
Finally! The Holidays!
Whew! So my lack of updating is due to our move to Sunny FL! Well....actually we arrived in FL in the midst of a cold snap, and it's actually been colder here than Seattle (not even joking like 29 degrees).So I've been seriously busy trying to organize furniture for a house so we can stop looking like we're just squatting here with our mattress on the floor. More on Florida later, all I'll say is that we're here, we love the house we're renting and there's lots to share but that's for another post on a different night, including some news on going back to school.How bout those holidays? 5 countries in 3 weeks!We started our trip from ...
