It is surreal to be posting this image right now from the Syrian border. Today we drove Atvs over Israeli military roads to this bombed out building in Golan Heights right on the Syrian-Israel border. We sat on the roof overlooking Syria while we were lectured on the Syrian conflict in the middle east and how it all began. I feel so blessed to be here and to be learning all sides of the story, something we dont get with our American media and news.
#ThrowbackThursday to March and April of 2013 when I traveled to Australia for the first time. As I prepare to fly to Cairns, Australia 🇦🇺 next week, before heading to Papua New Guinea 🇵🇬, I revisited some of the crappy pictures I took during the trip. My camera was stolen in Los Angeles the night before I was to fly to Sydney and I was left to use a point and shoot camera I bought from a vending machine at the airport. I’m hoping for a little better luck with my electronics this go-round!
1 more beautiful sunset....1 long walk along the beach....1 more month left for my speaker session at #TBEXOstrava2018 👩🏽💻☀. Today is their popular Twitter Chat (are you joining us?) and I will be interviewing conference director Shane Dallas tomorrow (Friday) live in my Social Media Marketing Support Group on Facebook.
SO many things going on right now and I am super excited!
The Kinnaur Kailash range lies within the Kinnaur Himalaya, rising almost vertically up from the swirling waters of the Sutlej to the 6437 m high Jorkanden (centre) and its 6050 m high neighbour, Kinner Kailash. The latter is the region's most important peak, believed to be a part-time home to Shiva and home to a monolithic Shivalingam near its summit. The range is best viewed from Kalpa, Kinnaur's 3000 m high old capital, bang across the Sutlej gorge from the peak. From the winding slate-lined lanes of Kalpa's petite old town, the peaks seem within arm's reach, as if looming right beyond the apple orchards and pine forests. It's only when you walk to through the trees to the edge of the road and notice a shear 1.5 km drop to the river below, wedged in between the village and the peaks, that you realise the massive, awe-inspiring scale of the Himalaya.
Many factors affect a photograph's quality, as well as the accuracy of your subject's representation. Resolution, orientation, focus, lighting, and magnification can all drastically affect the resulting aesthetics. Representing your subject accurately is both a matter of skill and time, and requires the ability to take oneself outside of the process, and objectively compare the resulting image with reality.

Ask the Universe for what you want and it can happen. When I was a pint size kid living in Jersey, I watched the show Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. I remember telling myself that I would live in Los Angeles one day. 🌟Bammm... right before high school, my dad got a new job. And our whole family moved to LA. I thought California was going to be like the shows Baywatch and 90291. But it wasn’t. It was so much more diverse with Latin, Asian, and Middle Eastern communities sprawled throughout the city. I feel so lucky and grateful to live in a place that many people want to visit, with comfortable weather ☀️ year round, and lots of delicious foods from various cultures. I’m also grateful that I have a dream career that allows me to travel ✈️, eat🍜, and inspire 🙏 this community of friends to explore. I still continue to ask the universe for what I want, and I ask for it to come easily! It does work (with a bit of hustle as well). .
Tell me... what tips could you share that have helped you achieve your dreams?
