My name's Shannon, and welcome to my blog. I'm an artist, amateur photographer, daydreamer and wanderlust, based in the Boston area (for now!) I love to read, listen to music, make art, and exist. I want to travel the world, explore all of its corners, and take as many pictures as possible. I love my family and friends with all of my heart and aim to capture their beauty as well-portrait and travel photography are very dear to my heart. I also dabble in design and writing as well, and am contemplating transferring colleges to add a major in communications to my current major of graphic design. 

For cameras, I usually use my 
~Canon 20D (with a 50 mm lens)
~Pentax K1000 (also, with a 50 mm lens)
~Nikon Action Touch

but have been known to use 
~my Iphone (4S)
~disposable cameras
