As we explored from the ground floor up, it was apparent that life still existed in the condemned hotel. Walking from room to room we saw the broken remnants of lost lives. There were rooms locked from the inside and sounds we heard from others as we decided to pass by and leave the inhabitants their privacy.
Really excited about the new Union App by Pixite due out sometime in April 2014. I'm still beginning to explore the possibilities with the newly added magic wand but here are a few double exposures I've made using the basic features of the new app. A great plus to editors is the app gives you the ability to transfer your edits between other Pixite Apps, Fragment, Tangent and Lorystripes and preserves layers which is incredible. Great things are in store from Ben Guerrette and company!

Honored to be included in the beta testing for the new Union App by Pixite. Blend above done in Union. Geometric object added in Fragment. Stripe added in Lorystripes. Coloring added in Mextures.
Everyday, once a day, take some time to stop and reflect, you'll be glad you did.
No matter how old you are, don't be afraid to enjoy the simple pleasures. Jump in a puddle, get your clothes dirty and just immerse yourself in the moment.
When you run into trouble, don't think about all the things you did wrong to get here, focus on how you're going to get out!
If you keep running into trouble don't be afraid to ask others for help. Until they arrive, just sit back and enjoy the view.
Always look for the bright side of every situation, humor is everything when things are going wrong.
Sometimes, nothing explains the situation better than colorful profanity.
Lessons are best learned the hard way! If we could really learn our lessons from watching movies and reading books life would be too easy and a whole lot less eventful.
When you find a rhythm and the obstacles seem to disappear, make sure you find more! Nothing makes you grow old faster than taking the easy road.

An edit for the Instagram challenge by @kevinkuster and @mobilemasters in the @joshjohnson community #jj_mobilemaster_challenge. All photos in this edit belong to me except the camera provided by @kevinkuster.
All of our various shapes and sizes and the awkward stages we experience on our journey to maturity.
This image is a result of the AMPt Community Chat group Collaboration Challenge. Every two weeks the AMPt Community Chat group chooses a theme and for two weeks we practice and try to step outside our comfort zone in an effort to expand our abilities in mobile photography. We then discuss the results and compare notes in an online chat forum every second Thursday at 6pm EST.

I was playing around and thought it was interesting to see the evolution of the edit from Elaine's original portrait to the finished product..
I am the sum of my past experiences, the unchangeable roots of my current self.
I am the aggregate of my current strengths and weakness. I am the means in which I provide for the needs of family and myself. I am the faults that I struggle to erase, I am the strengths that I strive to improve.
I am the ground in which I plant my seeds. My children will become echoes of my actions and my family will thrive at a rate equal to my, love and support.
I am a seeker of light, limited only by my beliefs.
I am not a photographer and these are not my photos. I am an adventurer, a seeker of answers, a lover of life and these are my visual journals.
Following the Civil War In America, train hopping became a common means of transportation as railroads pushed west. For years trains were hopped out of necessity, especially in times of economic hardship such as the Great Depression.
From this, groups of migrant workers that made a living hopping boxcars and picking up work where they could and earned the name “hobos.”
Danger, excitement and adventure soon brought a romance to the idea of train hopping hobos, attracting writers such as Jack Kerouac, Jack London and Ernest Hemmingway.
The title of this essay is taken from the song “King of the Road” by Roger Miller and tells the story of a poor man living life to the fullest humorously calling himself the “king of the road.” While train hopping is not as common anymore, it remains symbolic of our sense of adventure, our imagination, the open road and the adventures of life ahead.
