I have always been obsessed with astronomy.
I’ll never forgot the first time I saw a comet through my grandpa’s telescope. Or the first time I saw a meteor shower sitting near them and a campfire in the Texas Hill Country. Looking up to see dozens of stars flying across the sky is an experience everyone should have.
After many failed attempts at astrophotography, I researched settings, lenses and more for months and months. The result of which was a post-it that I carried around for about 8 months.
Then finally- the stars aligned. A “supermoon” on the way, I used the SkyView app to plan out my camera setup. I was ready as soon as the moon hit the roof above my apartment balcony.
I’d say there is now an exciting possibility of astrophotography shots in my future. Stay Tuned!
The Mississippi River needs no introduction. My first big encounter with it was celebrated by a gorgeous sunset. Amazing architecture, sunset, Mississippi River? I was sold.

In honor of Halloween (aka my favorite holiday), I wanted to post some shots of New Orleans I took this month. We actually just took a day trip to go to a Haunted Tour there, but we definitely fell in love with the city. I couldn’t take enough photos of the architecture!
We went to see the St. Louis Cathedral first. So gorgeous. Below is a photo featuring the alter at the front.
Built in 1721, the ceiling is as interesting as what’s under the building. See who’s buried under the church here.
Outside the church is Jackson Square. Here is the statue that sits on front of the cathedral. It happened to fabulous day outside!
I have a thing for trees and this one in Jackson Square was gorgeous!Street Views. I found myself imaging myself living on one of those balconies. Can you imagine? Gorgeous!Couldn’t get over the details on this iron. Later that night, we came across this eerie shadow from a Jesus statue. Turns out it’s actually the back of St. Louis Cathedral!During some wandering, we came across this bar, Burbon O Bar. I don’t know if it was the creepy atmosphere, them playing classic movies in the background, or this amazing singer and drummer, but I definitely fell in love.Stay tuned to Do As Locals Do for more photos and details from our New Orleans Haunted Houses Tour!
