South Dakota

This past weekend I traveled to South Dakota for a show and it was gorgeous there.  I was in Spearfish which is in the Black Hills and the scenery was just breathtaking! I kind of went crazy with the pictures so I thought I would share a couple of my favorites.

Film Photography

Fridays are for FILM PHOTOGRAPHY! I own an old Minolta film camera, so I'm going to be sharing pictures that I have taken with it.  This week the pictures are from Valley Junction in West Des Moines.  A street filled with quirky little shops and graffiti art everywhere.

Shakey Graves

I am a musician/singer-songwriter myself, so it's kind of a given that I am also sort of a music junkie. I could spend hours searching the internet to discover amazing new bands. Since I love music so much, I thought I would share what I love. I will be sharing what I have been listening with you guys, whether that is a new artist or just a handful of songs that I've had on repeat.  So without further ado, here is my first recommendation for you!

The past couple of weeks I have had Shakey Graves on constant repeat.  His music is addicting, and I'm not exaggerating at all!!  He has such a unique sound and his lyrics are just amazing.  There are a lot of his songs that aren't available on Spotify or iTunes or anything, so on Youtube there is a compilation video of his best live performances and not even kidding, I think I've listened to the whole thing like 50 times! If you want to check out the live compilation click here.

The current album he has available right now is called "And The War Came" so if you want to check that out or buy it you can visit his official website.
