11428058_10153451692978833_1908798008717800973_nEmiliana Chavez has been living in the funky Seattle neighborhood of Columbia City for the past 17 years. Hailing from picturesque New Mexico, she has come to the realization that she really enjoys taking photographs of the beauty that surrounds our everyday lives. She has also found that through social media, she has been able to share these aesthetic images that cross her path with not only friends and family but with a network of people across the globe.

For Tukwila Revealed, Emiliana will be showcasing physical prints of her photography. Emiliana says, “I started getting into photography just a few years ago, mostly for fun but soon came to find out that it is truly one of my passions. I enjoy taking photographs of grandiose landscapes, bodies of water, colorful and vibrant sunsets, birds, llamas and of my two super cute Chihuahuas, Paco and Cookie.”

Day Dreaming

I’ve taken a lot of pictures this year but simply haven’t taken the time to add them here too.  I found a sliver of time and here is a medley of pics from the past few months.  I will do better at keeping my blog updated now that I’m feeling re-inspired again.  Recently I haven’t felt as inspired as I had in the past 365 days.  I’m not sure if it’s my job getting the best of me or if I’m simply feeling frustrated about feeling tied down to work and  maybe even a wee bit lonely.  I’ve done a lot over the past few months.  I’m still biking and spending lots of time with my doggies.  I day-dream a lot about spending my days traveling and taking pictures.  Maybe one day I can figure out a way to make that a full-time reality.  Taking pictures, riding my bike and spending time with the dogs have been the things that make me passionate and excited about life.  My job…not so much.  Thanks for taking the time to listen and enjoy these photos.
