attempting photography: serenity in the woods

Using the generous gifts I received for my recent graduation, I bought a camera, and took it with me on a mini getaway to the woods [Shenandoah in Virginia]. There was no phone reception, i.e., no email, social media, calling + texting – basically a dream come true for introvert me. Here’s the product, let me know if you have any tips, advice, comments as I delve into amateur photography.

our humble abode:

the Little Bitty cabin [its actual name] was so cozy. if you know me, you know that I love miniature things.
the kitchen: it looks small but had everything we needed. delicious meals were prepared here.

and we’re off. about 10 minutes into it, I felt comfortable and relaxed.
I survived my first horse riding experience :D
