I have to confess I was a little terrified when I was assigned Talent Tuesday for this week because I couldn’t think of any talent to show and I guess I just didn’t want to face that sad reality (how dramatic am I, LOL) but then I remembered that there was a time when I was fully dedicated to one of my passions which is photography, this was many years ago when I still lived in the Dominican Republic where I’m from and I spent around 3 or 4 years traveling around the country with my photography group and I have to say, those were some of the best times of my life.

It was bittersweet to remember those days, I guess life happened and somewhere along the way I lost a little bit of myself, these days the only pictures I take are pictures of my kids and my dogs and as I write these words I can’t help but think, What the hell happened?!!! (LOL)  I just made a promise to myself to pick up my camera again at least once a month, go out and click away, so I guess what I’m trying to say is thanks Jon Tai for making me do this, I have to admit it was a good thing, no matter how much I dreaded it in the beginning.

I had to look very hard to find some of the pictures I took back then since it’s been so long but I was able to find a few to show all of you.  I love taking pictures of people in their natural environment and I got most inspired in the country side of the Dominican Republic, it was a beautiful time when I got to meet the most amazing people, people who are hardworking, decent, goodhearted and over all, happy no matter their circumstances.

Enjoy!
