Some pictures from the ATL. It was a short January vacation to start off the new year!
I loved the Georgia Aquarium. The arrangements and displays were so fun and interactive for all ages. The jellyfish. They are my favorite!
I believe these were moon jellies? I think I spent a good 15 minutes just starring at them. Yep. The cutest!
Turquoise-eye fishes 🙂 So rare and pretty.
and the best view of the city is at the Sun Dial Restaurant & Bar at the Westin. The bar had a rotating view of the city (what a unique idea!) and one can enjoy the 360 view of Atlanta in just 37 minutes! Cool or what?
ATL at sunset. Gorgeous.
This girl is everything. 🙂

First official post on WordPress.
I have been told many times over and over again (mostly coming from Pat) for the past couple of years to “get a blog!” and yet I dragged it out until now. So, here it is… the long overdue official blog!
I should really document my travel and photography better than just stashing them away in the 500GB hard drive of my MacBook Pro laptop like they’re some archaeological artifact. My photo collection stays put on my desk, never gets a chance to go anywhere or be seen, unless Starbucks can be considered an exceptional outing? Since I am dedicated to build my interest in photography into (hopefully) something official, I will begin with a blog, and in the near future, a website. (Many clients have asked for this and I really should try to work on something more presentable than Facebook, not that it isn’t already one of the fastest ways to put your whole life out there for those eyes that wander. YES, that’s you.)
To start, here is one of my favorite photos from one of the trips to NYC back in the holiday season. This picture was taken on December 25th – Christmas Day… and it was a cold, cold, afternoon.
ST and I arrived in NYC at 1pm that day (best time to travel anywhere is on a holiday, seriously!) and after waiting and getting out of lines at different Dim Sum restaurants in Chinatown, a few hours later, we finally got food and rushed to the Brooklyn Bridge to catch the sunset on the bridge. It was definitely a breathtaking view. For me, photography will always be about capturing everything at the right moment.
A friend, who is a well-known writer in Vietnam has recently published his book in late March 2014, showed me my (this) picture, printed in one of the pages in the stories he wrote about his travel in NYC. Now that’s something! =)
