Would you go to an art gallery and take things off of the wall?

Plush Style Photography

January 3, 2017 #plushstyle365

This photo was taken on January 3rd, 2017.  It was my first day back in the office.  At this point, I was putting too much unnecessary concentration on what my photo of the day would be instead of just naturally taking photos.  This shot was taken with the Sony a6000.

Plush Style 365 Project

In 2016, I barely picked up my camera, and during a visit to Tampa during Winter break of that year, I brought my camera along and I was reminded of why I love photography.  So, I decided that I would take at least one photo everyday during 2017.  This was the best decision I have ever made concerning photography.  At first I thought it would be difficult.  I thought that I would run out of things to take photos of, […]

Birthday Party at The Brush Up

Vakesha celebrated her birthday at The Brush Up, a paint night spot in Valdosta, Georgia. Everyone at the party enjoyed themselves.  The environment was filled with music, laughter, dancing, wine sipping, and painting.  The birthday girl didn’t even paint but she still had a good time going around critiquing everybody else’s masterpieces. The Brush Up is  a nice spot that provides a very positive atmosphere and gets your creativity going.  It’s a good place to go with your family, friends, and/or […]

The Black Barbershop Experience

The Black Barbershop is one of the most positive places you can ever visit, and it provides some of the most positive experiences.  There is a certain vibe that is consistent among many Black Barbershops all around the WORLD.  When you go inside of one of these barbershops, you’re getting more than just a fresh haircut because the barbers are more than just barbers.  They are stylists, counselors, news anchors, life coaches, movie critics, love gurus, and anything else you […]

Minority Student Leadership Program (MSLP): Class of 2017

I had the satisfaction of spending last week in Los Angeles at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) convention.  I was selected to present my research poster at the convention.  I was also selected to be a part of the Minority Student Leadership Program (MSLP).   40 of us were selected to be part of the MSLP and we all spent the week together learning a lot of good information and networking with other professionals in the field.  Our week was packed […]

The Farmers Market

Weeks before moving back to America, one thing I was excited to experience was shopping at the local Farmers Markets. While visiting my family, I had the opportunity to visit the Yellow Green Farmers Market in Hollywood, Florida. My nana, mamma, and sister accompanied me on the journey as they are committed shoppers. I was warned the market can get very packed so luckily we kinda beat the crowd. Upon arrival, while entering, there were a few food booths prepping […]

Nikon F2 Rescue

I picked up a Nikon F2 and had to clean it up a bit.

Europe Cycling

While living in Europe for 11 years, I grew accustomed to using public transportation when traveling.  Never did I imagine using it as my sole means of travel.  As I prepared for my new journey to the United States, a part of the process was shipping my car 2 months before leaving.  Usually most wait until the last few days to ship, but I wanted my ride waiting on me in America by the time I landed.  With many days […]
