Fall in Oregon

Probably my favorite unexpected result of becoming a blogger was my return to my love of photography. As many of you may know, I am a graduated photography major. But sadly, a rather volatile breakup with my photo school boyfriend, caused me to associate one of the worst times of my life with my camera. After school, I didn't touch it for literally years.

However, upon starting this blog, I found myself longing for my own photos to use here and slowly but surely my camera came back into my life. Only this time, with the positive connotation of helping not only my photography but also my writing and helping to introduce me to the wonderful blogging world!






Oh and did I mention I crossed one more thing off my 30 before 30 list? Yup, I saw not just my first waterfall, but FOUR waterfalls in one day! Go big or go home right? Speaking of trying new things, I took all of your advise on layering and successfully stayed warm the entire week!

(I was fascinated by the rose being as tall as I was. In case you were wondering.)

This post is my fall participation in Follower Fest! Join in the fun!

Your photos are beautiful. You obviously have a talent and it would have been a shame for it not to be used. Glad you claimed your "voice" back. :)
