Estate in Procida

The summer calls and I must go... Here is a gallery of my raw photos from my stay on the island of Procida with my mother.

Ercolano e Oplonti

Welcome to 79 AD. A Villa in Ercolano. Stepping into Ercolano is an experience to behold.

Then ones eyes drift down, seven meters to be exact, from the modern … Continue reading Ercolano e Oplonti

Afternoons and Amalfi

Buongiorno di Italia tutti!

After a ten hour drive with the parents, we bee lined it over to Keg Steakhouse. This is a crazy popular chain throughout western Canada - especially … Continue reading Nibbles in Banff

Falling into Winter

Arguably the best time of year is when you can wear a sweater and drink a hot chai latte and not feel like you nose is about to fall off from the biting cold of winter. When the leaves decide to show off and a slight chill enters the air, you know that fall has … Continue reading Falling into Winter

Vintage Summer

Timeless Polaroids have taken the world by storm in twenty-eighteen from basic Instax to modernized styles to refurbished polaroid cameras from way back when. These classic and one-of-a-kind photos were the original Instagram, snapshot, and frame that documented memories in the form of an instant photo. I decided to compile the polaroids that I took … Continue reading Vintage Summer
