Welcome to Timeline Photos. A few years back I started peeking around my archives in search of some of the first photographs I had taken. Here records my quest into better understanding my long term love of camera and experiencing the world with it in hand. All photos appear in chronological order hopefully revealing an evolution of how I see and what moves me to speak with light.

These boots were made for Festin'

Music, Food, Travel, Beer.

Jazz Fest's Second Sunday followed torrential rains from a storm on Saturday that closed Fest mid afternoon.  I knew that I'd need my boots in order to navigate the lands before and after work with Ms. Lena's Zulu Diamondcutters.  Instead of wishing that I had some fashion boots like many wear to the festival, I pulled out my good 'ol boots worn to the rainforest in 1995!!!  Crazy!  I've had them for 21 years.  

It stormed again in the morning, and rained, rained, rained all day long!  They did the job no matter the terrain or how deep the mud.  They were very dance and air-guitar friendly, too.  I was one happy girl.  Even rode my bike out back to the car with them on. :)))

Rain days are good days.

I love the rain and a reason to wear dem boots.
