On occasion I post articles to an online magazine called Her View From Home. I wrote this article a while back, but thought the images were fun enough to post on my own blog. Here is the article…. I woke up early on Saturday morning and decided it was a good day to go photograph the capital building in Lincoln. My dad mentioned he was going to an archaeology meeting in Grand Island
I had an art show at the hospital in Kearney, Nebraska. It was a great experience, and I am glad I was given that unique opportunity. One of my friends worked at the hospital and took me to the “Walkway Gallery” and I thought it was perfect. It was a long hallway with nice soft lighting with art on both sides.
