The Weekly Smile


My friend Trent have a Weekly Smile post every week, where he share positive experiences from the past week, and encourage others to do the same. Get the good energy flowing! There’s so many things to be grateful for, small and big things. I’m doing my best to post a Weekly Smile in the beginning of every week.

This week’s smile goes to the art of photography! LOL. Taking photos makes me happy. I enjoy Equine Photography the most, and as a close second landscape/nature photography. I very rarely do any other type of photography, but to sometimes switch things up a little, is a lot of fun! I had that kind of fun last week. Walking around with my camera in downtown Las Vegas.

While I was busy hating Vegas, and hiding from Vegas, a funny thing happened. I grew to love Vegas. – J. R. Moehringer

I am not sure that I’m quiet there yet, but I am doing my very best to make this time in Vegas into something positive. I enjoyed taking these photos, very different from the sceneries I usually prefer. I might do some more of that this summer, indoor photography, to get out of the heat. What made you smile this week? Please share with us!

It’s all about experiences, and the healing power of nature. Life is about choosing happiness. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes. A lot of that perfectly describes me. The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and my art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. Love, Maria

  1. It’s good to mix it up every now and then. 🙂 Interesting to get your views of Vegas, a city known for its glittery facade. That first spread of housing development made my heart lurch, but that’s because I’m a country girl. 😉 I’ve never visited LV other than quick stops at the airport, so it’s fun to see your POV.
    Keep smiling!

  2. When I travel I often do architectural type photography, like taking about a million photos in, on and around Notre dame in Paris. There is something cool about architecture and fun to photograph. Most of the time I’m like you and prefer to photograph nature.

    Anyway, nice shots. Where you in an airplane or was that first photo from a very tall tower?

    1. I like doing that when I travel too. 2-3 hours in London, or Paris, doing that is fun…after that I want to get out of the city. Lol. I took the first photo at the 52nd floor of Palms Place, a hotel and casino. The elevator up was so fast that I got dizzy.
