Park University, Parkville MO

Went down to KC for Sean’s birthday, which so happens to be a few days before Christmas. He turns to me and says, do you want to go see a college that looks like an American Hogwarts with an underground library? I said, Heck yes!

So this is my trip to Park University aka sneaking around a deserted college during winter break!

Old Market, Omaha

When I moved to Omaha, I decided with living 13 hours away from friends and family that I would find myself pretty lonely for a while. While I miss my best friends, and our shenanigans, I figured out a much better way to cope.

That’s when I decided that I would pick up photography as a little hobby. I don’t have a fancy camera, though I really wish I did have a DSLR. I have a sony cyber shot 16mp, with the special Carl Zeiss lens. Good enough to get some nice shots. I do take artistic shots and portraits, too, but this isn’t the blog for that.

There is a bit of purpose behind my hobby, a driving force I didn’t have before. You see, before I moved to Omaha, I had lived in the same area for 5 years. That’s the longest I have ever lived in one place since I was a child. So you see, I have a lot of connections to my old home. Lots of history, and lots of people whom I miss dearly. This was a way for me to show them my life now. My travels, what I see, and that way when I share my photos with them its almost like they can be with me there.

I do hope you don’t get all blah blah blah, Amber stop with all the pictures. We came for a blog with writing, not some silly gypsy to spam us with photos. Well I guess, You, my dearest reader will just have pardon all the images and just accept that a picture is worth a thousand words.  I know its very unlikely anyone is going to complain, but I figured I would put that out there.

So onward, enjoy a sampling of Omaha’s Old Market. Its very historic and the atmosphere is just to die for. Why didn’t I move to the Old Market instead of the suburb? Ah, the world may never know, or maybe its just my wallet crying at the thought of those lavish apartments.

First Trip to Kansas City: a Picture Post

As down time is inevitable in blogging, or life in general, I figured I would share some of my newest hobby. Photography. I recently just dived right into photography to entertain myself, and share with friends and family what they are missing out on.

Today, I will share a few shots on my trip to Kansas City. I flew in to visit my boyfriend for the first time on his home turf, and we did a little adventuring.  Not really a little because the whole trip was go go go! Which is how I like a good trip!
