Leaving Canyonlands, my next stop was Monument Valley!
When I got there, I actually got trapped by the weather. A HUGE thunderstorm rolled in and made walking outside very dangerous. I ended up eating lunch there and just watching the scenery change until I got too bored and just powerwalked back to my car.
To be honest, this post is a few hours late because my computer is crashing when doing some tasks…There was a panorama that I preferred, but trying to work on it caused a crash. I think I've found the problematic hard drives…but I can't swap them out yet.
I wasn't in Monument Valley for very long, so tomorrow will be a different location!

So this Tuesday, we have our first class critique on our assignment, "Personal Vision." I can't lie, this baffled me, y'all. I had no idea where to begin. My photos are suppose to reflect me and my interests. I had the toughest time deciding what to photograph. I love so many things and had so many ideas...but in typical Cindy fashion, I overthought and overthought until all of a sudden, ITS SUNDAY! And I have to print 25-30 photos out to take to class with me Tuesday. 😳 Talk about stress. So, I had to do something, right? Lying in bed, slightly panicky, my husband walks in and says, "We're going to the park. Want to bring your camera?" And it's like a thousand pounds lifted off my shoulders. Why was I panicking? I know what interests me: Family. Nature. Incorporating photography into other things that make me happy. Then all of a sudden, it became so easy. ✨

▪Never once did I think this could be real until I saw it, touched it, and felt it myself▪
Let's take the leap to experience something we never thought would be possible. In this beautiful life, if there is a will, there is a way.
Gazing at the worldwide famous sunbeam of the Upper Antelope Canyon, Page, Arizona, USA
Fact of the Day:
Standing nearly 40m (120ft) under the ground surface, these majestic canyons were formed by erosion of Navajo Sandstone via flash floods and other sub-aerial processes.
Best time for sunbeam photography: 11-1pm
Thanks @kimmie_q_wx for being part of the ass kicking I got today. I’v never been to @otf_arcadia, but it wasn’t too bad. Fast 45 min that packs in quite a bit of exercise. After that I ate bacon green chili mashed potatoes I made. 🙏🏽
This my shot will be displayed at 1650 Gallery & Studio (1650 Echo Park Ave, Los Angeles, CA) in Echo Park. The Opening Night Reception is Next SATURDAY, Sep 30th, 7:30-10:30pm. Please stop by if you are around.
New post/link in profile/Kayenta, Arizona/Navajo Nation (21/9/2017)
Semasa di dalam perjalanan pulang dari Monument Valley ke Farmington, kami singgah di Kayenta yang hanya mengambil masa pemanduan kurang dari setengah jam. Kayenta, Arizona terletak di dalam daerah dan pentadbiran Navajo Nation Reservation iaitu salah satu puak asli Amerika Syarikat.
Menjejakkan kaki di daerah kaum asli Amerika Syarikat(Indian Reservation) bukan sesuatu yang asing bagi kami.
Meskipun beberapa daerah kaum asli mempunyai rangkaian restoran makanan segera, motel dan stesen minyak, serta kemudahan asas yang lain tetapi agak sedih untuk saya katakan di sini bahawa rata-rata daerah kaum asli di sini agak mundur. Lihat melalui video ini dan gambar-gambar lain yang disiarkan di laman blog. Dari sudut positif, mereka kaya dengan adat, budaya dan tempat-tempat bersejarah yang masih dikekalkan sehingga kini.
Artikel baharu disiarkan pada 21 September 2017 dengan tajuknya 'Kayenta, Arizona (Daerah Kaum Asli Amerika Syarikat)'. Alamat blog turut diletakkan di bahagian profil Instagram ini.
Man, I hate to be a downer.... But I am one of the few that is NOT excited that fall is here.
Give me summer all day, everyday all year. Shorts, swimsuits, sandals, sweat, beach, pools, lots of sun, tans, camping, lack of flu/colds everywhere...I could keep going.
The other seasons just don't hold a candle to my Summers.
