A visit to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library

Here are a few photographs and quotes I took from a recent visit to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library located in Simi Valley, California. The man's life story is so inspiring to me. The man started off from super humble beginnings and with nothing but hard work and determination, he rose to become the president of the United States.

We learned from our parents that individuals determine their own destiny; that is, it’s largely their own ambition and hard work that determine their fate in life.

On my desk in the Oval Office, there sits a plaque that says, ‘It can be done.’ It’s a belief that I deeply hold true.
— Ronald Reagan

We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
— Ronald Reagan
The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.
— Ronald Reagan

America’s best days are yet to come. Our proudest moments are yet to be. Our most glorious achievements are just ahead.

Photoshoot w/Simonxo

I linked up with singer song writer SimonXO in the Los Angeles downtown district to capture some new press and promo shots for Summer 2018. Here are a couple of my favorites from that photo shoot.

I spent my weekend checking out a local set of waterfalls here are a stones throw from New York City. They're located a one hour drive west of NYC in an area known as the Delaware Water Gap. So many hidden gems located up and down the Delaware River valley and i highly recommend visiting the area!

A few days in New England.

Hi all! Welcome to my new blog. I've used the Tumblr platform to blog since 2010, but I'm moving all my blogging activities to my website just so I have everything in one place. To kick off my new blog, I'll be sharing a few photos with you from a recent trip to Maine.

 Whenever I visit a new town or city, I always look for a carpark or similarly tall structure so I can capture some decent aerial shots of wherever I am. In this particular carpark in Portland, Maine was some nesting seagulls who felt threatened enough to chase me the little bastards!

 Arguably New England’s most famous food: The Lobster Roll! A toasted bun with a light spreading of butter and mayo topped off with the juiciest cold lobster meat. Heavenly!

 I took this shot at exactly 03:58am. It's amazing just how early you can see light in the summer.

I love Maine. Such a clean state, lots of nature, rivers, coastline and mountains. Many colonial references in the local architecture too which reminds me of home. I'm so glad the English established colonies here. Well thank you dropping by and expect more posts from my travels soon! KD. X
