Has your city/country opened back up?
I was out this weekend and I noticed in Chicago, everything has basically opened back up. I even got an email from my “you know what” waxing place that they are open so I guess everyone is open open now!
Summertime might not be dead afterall but remember to wear masks and practice social distancing while out and about!
TGIF: Remembering the moments I took for granted!
I remember when Tito (@titocee2000) was taking this picture, someone was in the background trying to talk to us at the same time. I was so mad like can’t you see we are busy? 😂😂😂😂😂
Now I wish I can be in a waterfall somewhere tropical and someone will be in my space again 😂😂...
You are beautiful
You are enough
Your struggles don’t define you
You are a force
Celebrate a black woman today and like @theufuoma said, gift her an all expense paid trip to the Maldives in 2021 today! I am accepting gifts so pull up #morphexjamescharles...
Here to wish everyone a Happy New Week! I recieved calls from friends this week asking how I have been coping and saying the year needs to be over because it’s been overwhelming!
2020 has definitely been alot for everyone but hang in there! We will get through the year together and come out stronger ❤️🙏🏽
Mural by @liladasart! Very well articulated piece!...
I thought summer was dead in 2020 because of all that’s been going on but maybe it’s not! I had the best day out in Galena, IL today!

What trip did you cancel due to lockdowns?
I was supposed to travel to Madagascar for my birthday trip today (NOW ACTUALLY)! I have been planning it for MONTHS!!!! I have wanted to visit Madagascar for years now but tickets never made sense and I finally saw a ticket for the low low and hopped on it.
The lemurs, the nature, the beaches. My heart cannot take it 😭😭
I am hurt! Better luck in 2021...
I miss visiting Mexico several times a year as if it was behind my house.
I am pretty sure I would have visited at least twice by now if not for the lockdown.
Cheers to currently visiting Mexico in the spirit by looking at #archives haha.
I think trips within a country of residence would be popular after lockdowns are over. I would definitely be taking advantage of exploring the US more. Top states on my list are California, Colorado, Utah and Oregon. What states are on your US bucketlist?...
Today, I want to encourage you to visit cities and landmarks close to you regardless of your expectations!
I have been spending time resesrching things to do around me and of the cities I found was Baraboo, Wisconsin.
Baraboo is a cute city with a lavender farm that hosts the best picnics. If I am being honest, the lavender farm did not meet my expectations. The owners said they struggled with growing lavenders however, the lavender themed picnic and hike at the scenic lake in Baraboo made the 3 hour drive worthwhile. Would I do it again? Absolutely!...
I turn 29 today and it does not feel like a Happy Birthday for certain reasons. Like some of you know, my Mom passed away 1 week ago due to covid-19 complications. She was a nurse who literally gave her all to her work.
I wish I could celebrate my birthday under different circumstances but God knows best.
I am sure she is smiling at me and telling me to cheer up. Here is to year 29 and many more years to come 🍾🥂
I get questions from well wishers about how my family can be supported at this time. There is a go fund me link in my bio which was set up for her. Thank you to EVERYONE who has donated so far! The love has been overwhelming!...

FAQ: What type of camera do you use?
I use a Sony a7r II with a Sigma 24mm lens
Photography is however not 100% about the equipment. Last year, I broke my camera so I had to use my phone to take alot of my travel pictures. You would not be able to tell.
Photography is mainly about how well you can execute a vision. The equipment is secondary.

Can you believe that this is Uganda?!
I could barely believe it myself!! Africa has ALOT of gems that need to be discovered!
One of the gems and the country that surprised me most is Uganda!
It is one of the cheapest countries I have ever visited and absolutely green and beautiful!
In Uganda, visiting Lake Bunyonyi is a must as well as taking a cruise down the Nile and Gorilla trekking.
Gorillas can only be seen in Uganda, Rwanda and DRC so if you have the $$$ ($600), I recommend this activity for your travel bucketlist....
