David Hill - Yellow Hammock

I have had the fortune to be able to visit the United States Virgin Island, specifically, St Thomas.  Here is a greeting card I picked up that always makes me think of wonderful sunny island days.

Totally Rando

Get Rando with your pictures.

Rando is a newer app that bucks the trend of traditional photo sharing apps.  Instead of sending images for all of your friends to ooo and aahh over, you send them to a COMPLETE stranger.  And only one person will see it.

So why would someone want to do this?

'The idea, the developers explain, was born out of fond memories of the occasional mix-ups that occurred in the days when taking pictures meant dropping off film to be developed. Every so often, some absentminded clerk would slip someone else’s photos in your envelope, and you’d get an unexpected glimpse into some anonymous life. If you’ve ever looked through some old packet of photos at a flea market, you’ll be familiar with this unique mix of voyeurism, mystery, and serendipity.'

Want to see what my first 3 Rando's look like?

Are these 'better' then what I would post on Instagram? No. But I like the idea of taking pictures for fun that don't need a reason or a story. 

I will Rando on.

How did I learn about Rando? Right here.

Tequila, Si

I enjoy a good summer tequila drink.  Many weekend afternoons are and will be spent sipping on tequila with a splash of orange juice and sparkling water.  Ratios really depend my mood.
