About: The Blog
Dharma Anchor is the brainchild of an adventuresome lady always on the go with a camera in her hand. This blog serves as a photo journal for travel near and far, a gallery of places to go and things to see. Mostly its travel by motorcycle, both solo and as a couple, but there are also entries from road trips on four wheels and adventures with the coolest little girl around. Occasionally there may be a post inspired by life on two wheels as a segue between adventures, but otherwise its all about experience, to go, to expand, to take in all that a person can in their handful of revolutions.

Believes in purpose.
About: The Photography
At the ripe old age of five, I got a camera for my birthday and was instantly in love. I document my life in images, photographed, painted, and drawn, and found my calling in showing beauty and usefulness in overlooked or forgotten places. For a living I’ve done everything from portrait work to photojournalism, which I love, and have shown my art in galleries since I was a teenager. I shoot both film and digital, and although I have learned to appreciate the perks of digital (such as being able to create this blog), I will always prefer film. You will frequently find entries here involving a mix of the two.
