Love Shines

The Queen 
She brings stability to man's life 
She doesn't create problems, she solves them 
She doesn't seduce a man with her body 
She stimulates with her mind 
She shines light into his darkness 
She doesn't settle, she inspires growth 
She doesn’t fit in with the rest, she stands out 
You'll know when you meet her because she’s all you’ve been waiting for

Exhibition at Exposed DC's 2018 Annual Photography Show

Last Friday, I have the honor to be selected as one of the winners to be a part of the Exposed DC's 2018 Photography Show in DC! What a vibrant and lively way to kick off the show, especially at an innovative cultural location at @dupontunderground, which is renovated from a former trolley station. 

In frame here is a mother and daughter playing and running down the train track while my winning photo “Conversation” is being projected large in the tunnel and on the other side on view in prints. How cool is that!

It always makes my heart happy to see how people are enjoying my artwork. When I walked into the opening reception a girl saw my name tag and cheerfully grabbed me and said, “Your photo is my favorite, I want one at my home!” 😭❀️ If you happen to see this, you made my day Katie thank you!
It was also such an honor to be exhibited  along with all the other fellow talented DMV photographers to share our unique view and celebrate the experience of the people who live, love, and work here in DC!

The exhibition is free and on view today till 5/20 10am-5pm, and will close on 5/21 5-7pm. 
Come enjoy the art and bring a moment of DC home with you in print ❀️

Cherry Blossom

"To see a world in a grand of sand

And a heaven in a wild flower

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand

And eternity in an hour"

- -

Since I moved here, I’ve become a religious flower chaser and come to see the Cherry Blossom every single year. Can’t believe it’s been 8 straight years for me! Still, each time I can find something new, something makes me so happy and brighten up my day. 
Often times I heard people say “oh I’ve been to xxx already, I don’t want to go again it’ll be boring.” The fact is, things are forever progressing and you can always find something new and different if you pay attention. Stop chasing the new and fancy but simply enjoy life and find the little beauty and surprises in our daily lives☺️

March For Our Lives

"If there is a book that you want to read but it hasn't been written yet, you must be the one to write it."

- -

When the future is changing the history - A documentary of the student organized protest "March For Our Lives" in Washington DC.

To see the full coverage, check the album at

Rebecca, standing along with 800,000 people in DC to #MarchForOurLives. Locally from Gaithersburg, MD, she’s a senior at Rockville High School. She went to the Women's March last year and always felt the need of better gun control laws. But now, she said she can really help make a change because she'll be turning 18 next month so SHE CAN VOTE, and WILL VOTE! The new generation is here to start the change!

When enough is enough, and kids, women, and men all stand up to protest and demand for a change.

The kids sat on their parents' shoulder, protesting at the rally

A  woman hugging and comforting her daughter during the rally

The metro station was packed with protestors to head to the US Capitol for the rally

The protestors raised their hands when the student speaker asked, "Who's going to vote?"
