About a month ago I went on a trip with a couple of my friends to Florida. We explored some parks and encountered different types of wildlife that you definitely don't encounter in the Midwest. To be honest, this was the first time I've taken my camera along to take some travel shots in the US. Typically I've taken my camera with me when traveling out of the country but never considered the aspect of photographing in my own country. I feel that sometimes I might take for granted the beauty that we are so immune to seeing because we see it everyday or are "used to" seeing it. That was the biggest lesson I learned on my trip because there was so much to photograph. Now I've learned to open my eyes to any possibilities.
In the past week, I've reconnected with individuals from the India trip that I went on about a year ago. Although I haven't talked about it yet I will say that the individuals I was with on this month long trip are people I won't forget and definitely got very comfortable with on many different levels. I always encourage people to step out of their comfort zone and go out of the country at least once in their life because it is a real eye opener that you wouldn't understand if you just watched it on the Discovery Channel or Rick Steve's travel show. Going out of the country makes you aware of different cultures and in some instances make you step back and think. I know for a fact that I've been impacted by the travel that I've done so far even though I haven't been to many places. Posted above is a photo that was taken on the first day we arrived in India.
So to start off, my name is Elizabeth Kosowesky (obviously) and you have somehow come across my website. Yay! My website consists of my work from the last four years and also some of the traveling I've done including the people I've encountered along the way. I'm a animal lover, traveler, book addict, and coffee addict. The main purpose for me to start writing this blog is so that people get to know me and my work. I usually don't have much to say but I hope that my posts will inspire someone out there.
