This work was inspired by a little girl who grew up without much but through books did everything she ever dreamed of doing!

Featured in: The Group and more…

All photos are mine (finally lived my dream to visit Egypt), texture by skeletal mess, background text from wikipedia.

Shot with a Canon 5D Mark II, Egypt shots were taken with my old Rebel XT

Hi! Like everyone else, I LOVE and have a passion for photography!

A couple of years ago I went back to school to get a degree in Web Design and New Media.

Also, so you know, I jealously guard my favorites so if you take a peek into mine, you will only see what I think is excellent work—if I’ve favorited your work it’s cuz I TRULY believe it deserves to be there!

    Creative! I especially like the sand and rocks that you allowed to accumulate (or be transparent) through the pages there on the right. I can tell a lot of work went into this. It’s a fun and well exectued composite. :)

  • Thanks SOO much Birgitta!! These kinds of images are harder for me to share cuz I have less confidence so I REALLY appreciate the feedback! I especially appreciate YOU weighing in on this one!
