Taru Gardens

Taru Gardens Pond & Gazebo

During a recent trip to Miami my aunt took me to see Taru Gardens, a non-profit living species museum located at the The Sundy House in Delray Beach. I would describe it as a lush garden with an Asian / New Orleans type feel. Trees, plants, and ponds filled with fishes and turtles combined with the genteel southern charm of a large gazebo felt quite fancy but extremely serene and relaxing. I am always in awe when I visit a place that is in or near a bustling metropolis but still manages to seem as though its a world and decades, if not centuries away.


Las Vegas Hotels

Las Vegas Hotels - Caesars Palace Interior

In 2008 I took a short Las Vegas vacation to celebrate my mother’s birthday (she likes the slots, don’t ask). I took a few snapshots at attractions, made half hearted attempts between bites at buffets (which I love), but my favorite subjects were the hotels.
