Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness, you who seek the Lord: look to the rock from which you were hewn, and to the quarry from which you were dug.-Isaiah 51:1
Had a great time at Shaw Butte last weekend. Here's a drone shot looking at North Mountain, with Piestewa (Squaw) Peak in the background. Love this area and there are tons of trails. Make it a great weekend IG! ✌️

Mornings in the Superstitions... On my favorite trail... To my favorite summit... What more could you want? Enjoy the incredible weather. Get some hiking in! ✌️

I had some time to kill on my way to work the other day. I actually pulled off and set up my camera. It was quite foggy on this morning. Of course, all my settings were wrong and didn't notice until near the end... However, I did get some decent photos. My long exposure idea was a bust, but I'll take what I can get. Make it an incredible weekend IG! ✌️🔥

I got my act together last night, got out my Panda planner and planned my day down to what I am going to eat all day. Then I had so many ideas going through my head...not sleepy, so like a dufus I stayed up and watched an episode of Madame Secratery...and then just like that it was 1am when I went to bed. Of course I was tired and the kids had a 2 hour delay so I slept in ruinging my early start. The delay turned into school being cancelled. I am a planner by nature but also very much fly by the seat of my pants. It's a hard combo. I have learned...I mean am learning to roll with changes and be flexible, do my best and let the rest go. Making room for grace. I hope you give yourself the benefit of the doubt today too, missteps and all❤ Here's to making room for grace. Be nice to yourself today.

Driving home from dinner, I came across this face in my neighborhood. I don't know what it is, or why it's here. It's makes for a great picture though!!!
Hey guys! What did you think about the new set? Are you guys digging the three photo line up? Or should I go back to random? Let me know! (: and let’s schedule a shoot dm me 😁✌🏽
What I love most about the change I see in my 28 versus 18 year old self is how much more comfortable I am just being me:
An outdoors-loving Ojibwekwe photographer, writer, and academic who shares whatever words and images inspire me with a bunch of internet randos and friends 😂
Happy Friyay—I hope y’all can get outdoors and enjoy a nice, long weekend! (I’m headed some place snowy 🏔)
Exploring Fiery Furnace last summer. The shaded areas were a really nice break from the hot desert sun. Thanks @jbruckal
for helping me show the scale....without knowing of course.
Looking into the weekend like....
I think lots of us humans grew up looking for images in the clouds at some point. Well that imagination stuck with me and I still find imaginary treasures here and there in more than cloudscapes. I was instantly drawn to this cute little imaginary mouse sitting inside a Saguaro cactus as soon as I saw it. The little treasures in life are so sweet and fun to stumble upon. All we need to do is look around to find hidden treasures placed everywhere by our Creator. The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become visible to us. Why do we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Is it because we see things so often, we see them less and less for what they truly are - treasures. Take time to stop and really look around you. There are so many hidden treasures in your life. Enjoy them. 🙌🏼
