Food || #40DayLentography
It’s weird posting a “full length” photo-crop… Regardless, I want you to meet my 46th peanut butter and jelly sandwich of 2014. I started a tally on the underside of my Tupperware, don’t judge my dietary statistics. (at CityTarget)

This man was non-stop. I took this photo a couple months ago, but I vividly remember how hard of a worker (and satisfactory of chef) he was. (at Camp Angelos)

What you cannot see in this photo is me standing in the middle of the MAX tracks with an oncoming train to my right. Sometimes, you just can’t pass up a good capture. (at Pioneer Place)
Desire || #40DayLentography
This Lent season I decided to do something a little adventurous and insightful. For each day, I will choose one word from my Lenten Daily Devotion book that stands out to me. Then (here comes the adventure) I go out into the world and try to capture that word in a photo!
Today’s word is… DESIRE. And there is no stronger desire than when you’re a kid in a candy shop! (at Rocket Fizz)
On this day, three years ago, I downloaded Instagram from the App Store! Inspired to continue photography after my film photo class in high school, Instagram has been an eye-opening inspiration. I applaud all those involved with the development of this photo-media app. Their hard work and success has brought people together from all corners of the world. Without Instagram, there are a fair amount of people that I would never have had the pleasure of knowing. I don’t even think I’d still be taking pictures! It’s complete craziness to think that all this started with a tiny app…
Oh, and about this picture, I don’t think I’ve ever had to stand so close to another human being as I did when I boarded that MAX. #RidingRoseCity (at TriMet NE 7th Ave MAX Station)
There were two old ladies sitting on a bench, waiting for their bus to arrive. The first woman says out loud, “Gosh, I’ve been sitting here so long, my butt has fallen asleep!”
The second lady replies, “I know! I heard it snoring!”
(My grandpa shared this joke with me, and we both laughed for about fifteen minutes…) (at City of Portland)
Waiting for the bus, I was frozen in place at the sight of this bug, I almost missed getting this picture! #JitterBugJourney (at Trimet Stop ID 715)
Perhaps some of you can agree with me when I say, sometimes photography is spontaneous. Of course, the majority of photographs are carefully thought out, meaningful, and convey some sort of emotion. Other shots, however, can happen in the blink of an eye!
This photo, for example, I quickly snapped without breaking my stride as I crossed the street. But it still express a great amount of detail! The taxi, the bike line, the MAX train (which I caught up to), and the overall downtown setting.
Photography is spontaneous. #RidingRoseCity (at City of Portland)
"Janey! Hold this in front of your face!"
“Just trust me!”
