A while ago, I joined FAM and found one of the fellow FAMer is a great photographer - Lorissa Longfellow. She took many beautiful pictures of landscape on the west part of America, and Julien even gave his 2 thumbs up for her pictures ( FYI, Julien was a professional photographer before).
I like photography, even though I am null on it. For me it's a great media to share our vision with others. Photography is not always has to be something easy to be understood, it will be more interesting if someone has to look at it for sometimes before he or she could really understand what the picture is all about. That's why all the museum of arts always provide spaces for people to stay and take a long look of those art works ;)
Today, I am lucky enough to be able to featured her (and one of her beautiful picture) on my blog. I asked Lorissa to share with me a bit of her story behind this picture, her answer is:
The photo was taken from an overlook on the South Rim Drive in the evening. The White House overlook and trail, to the White House Ruins, are generally the most photographed, but I loved the swirling sandstone. The whole monument is beautiful and a special place because it is still home to the Navajos.
This was the last stop on our wedding road trip. My hubby and I spent two weeks camping and spending the night in an occasional hotel when we eloped. The actual wedding took place in a haunted hotel in Gold Hill, NV (near Virginal City). I used my Minolta x-700 and Fuji Slide film to capture the image.
This picture was taken at Canyon de Chelly National Monument Arizona but for more beautiful of Lorissa's picture, you can visit her website, her flickr, her blog, and since she is also one of ETSY's artist, of couse, she also her shop there.
This is the first time I featured someone on my blog, I hope I wrote it good enough. But there is another happy news I want to share with you. Before I wrote this post, I just won Lorissa's ETSY Shop secret, a beautiful ROUTE 66 Card. I bet Julien will be happy if I told him about it tomorrow.....
