Corey Arnold

I love this guy. Apart from Lindsey, he's hands down my favorite photographer. I would hate to be on a fishing boat like these, but these pictures make it seem crisp and clean and lighthearted. I'm sure (or at least Deadliest Catch has made me believe) it's quite the opposite.

A little background on Corey Arnold, he is a photographer, yes, but he is also an Alaskan commercial fisherman. Weird. Right now he's chronicling the commercial fishing lifestyle throughout the world.  It sounds amazing, but I'm sure it's rather smelly.

Work for my love

I know it's a little cheesy, but right now, my best and most prolific client is my husband (well, his gym). I guess he believes in me. Or he very much enjoys my friends and family discount. Either way, he keeps coming back for more.

I recently did an infographic-type poster for his gym. I say infographic-type, because let's not kid ourselves, I have no idea what a real infographic is supposed to look like. I've based this design on the countless infographics I've seen on popular websites. And believe you me, there are incredible numbers of these out there. So many, that there are also countless infographics ON infographics. Amazing. Trends are simply amazing.
The poster is for my husband's gym's Healthy Eating Challenge. Every now and then, he holds a challenge to his members to eat as healthy as they can for a certain period of time. There are tests, workouts, before and after pictures to show the results after the challenge. I've done this twice before, and seen incredible results. It is amazing to me that more people aren't learning to eat better, as opposed to running on that treadmill for hours upon hours.

Atlanta Botanical Gardens

On a recent exploration trip, I found some great inspirations from the Orchid and High Elevation Houses at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.

Nature sure has created some interesting stuff!

Ages ago, it would be pretty tough to go into the world looking for these sights. In fact, a large amount of the plants in these houses are only found on remote islands. I mean really remote islands. Very far away. I consider myself so lucky to have these amazing habitats so accessible!

There will most likely be many more posts involving these plants, so keep your eye out!
