[326/365] Happy New Year!, Fireworks, Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

So, this is officially my last post and photo of 2010. I didn’t quite reach 365, but I think I came pretty close. I can’t believe I continued it for most of the year! Just hard playing catch up when you sometimes skip a couple days. Anyway, 2010 has been a decent year I’d say. […]

[229/265] Ray Ban Wayfarers, White Sands National Monument, White Sands, New Mexico, USA

The White Sands National Monument is just MADE for photo shoots. I decide to do some product photography with my Ray Ban Wayfarers. I just love these – especially with the New York City subway map on the interior! Even though the sun was shining brightly, the sand still remained a cool temperature!
