In the Distance

As our life begins to settle, I’m finally finding more time to spend with my camera. Yay! This means I can start doing some of my favorite things again, like participating in the I Heart Faces monthly challenges. This month’s challenge is “In the Distance.” This photo is actually from a few months ago when my parents visited, but it’s one of my favorites because it has my three favorite people in it.

Mom & Dad Visit

A few weeks ago, my parents came up for a visit. We went to the butterfly preserve and spent some time walking on the beach. It’s so nice to be living close enough to be able to visit without travelling for 24 hours.


Phone Fotos

Wow. Moving across continents is a crazy business. With our lives in limbo for the last six months, photography definitely took a back seat. We did finally get cell phones about two months ago. This is the first time I’ve owned a smart phone, and I’ve been having a great time playing with some of the fun photo apps out there. My favorites so far are Instagram and Flickr. I like Instagram for the social aspect, but I think I actually like Flickr’s editing options better. Here are some of my favorite phone shots so far. If you have any suggestions for fun photo apps, I’d love to hear them!

View from the Flakturm

The Haus des Meeres is located in one of the old Flaktuerme¬†from World War II. You can walk around the balcony of the Flakturm and get a 360 degree view of Vienna. It’s kind of awesome.
