Are we too caught up in the trivial things in life?

I believe as a society, we care about too many things in our life that should not matter or affect our daily lives.

If you were to log onto any […]

I thought this was cool because she didn’t edit her pictures much, but instead made sure […]

Toy Story

When taking these pictures, I thought it would be cool to have the pictures telling a story. It was challenging to get a story in just three pictures and to play with the depth of field. I think that because the toys I chose were military action figures, creating the story of their journey was easier than if the toy […]
