Buckle up my friends, you are about to travel the stars with us. This will not be an interstellar voyage…maybe at some point (and a couple billion dollars of funding) we could deliver travel tips and pictures from space, but for now we will remain on our beautiful home planet.
“Two of the greatest gifts we can give our children are roots and wings.” -Hodding Carter
We are a family of four. I am Rebecca, the mother unit, and Emil, the father unit/hubby, is my best friend and fellow adventure addict. Our offspring, Ember and Asher, are our semi-constant companions and students.
“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved. -Ansel Adams
Emil and I are photographers; I specialize in photojournalism and macros of nature while Emil’s forte is in fine art portraits, landscapes, and architecture. I have written for several publications including the Las Vegas Food and Beverage Professional, Mud Runner HQ, and TAG Global.
“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” -Anonymous
Eemz (as I call Emil) and I met in his home state Montana on one of my random excursions. He followed me down to Las Vegas and we have been traveling together ever since, beginning with a road trip from Nevada to Georgia which is my home state. We slowed down after the arrival of our two children but the wind whispers to us, the stars pulse in morse code urging us to view them from around the campfire, the scent of pine and clear mountain streams haunts our dreams. There is no option for us, we are compelled to travel, it’s in our blood which must be muddled with gypsy or bedouin genes.
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” -Helen Keller
This is our life, our great adventure being documented. Join us on our journey and if you feel inspired, go on an adventure of your own.
