Over the last year since my fiance and I purchased our first home, we haven’t done a lot of traveling but we’ve been learning to explore our new home. As a photographer, I’m always looking for new locations to take photos. I’ve been pleasantly surprised to find some locally after merely walking around town. I’ve also discovered some fantastic restaurants and general “hang out” spots in the area. When I can’t afford to travel, one of my favorite things to do is explore nearby towns to find hidden gems. However, I do have some really exciting travel plans in just a few months that I’ll share more about at a later date! Take a look at some of the images from around town.
