The dream of the 90s is still alive when you are wearing shorts and rollerblading. I often get weird looks from passers-by and bikers judge me on occasion, but I've learned to accept it and roll on.
My love of photography followed after my love of travel. My first experience traveling abroad was in high school, trekking around the northern hills of Thailand with my mom's old film camera, 20 or so rolls of film and an extra set of batteries. The minimum wage job I worked in high school slinging smoothies coupled with a penchant for spending money on plane tickets did not permit me to purchase a DSLR camera until college, but the wait was worth it.
