Hi friends!

I hope every had a fantastic weekend. I spent mine putting the final touches on the new Merari Photography home. Blogger has been very good to me, but it was time to branch out into something new.

So, with that said, make sure to change your rss feed settings and follow me to my new home :)

National Geographic {Personal}

I clearly remember the first time I saw a National Geographic magazine. At the time, I couldn't care less about their insightful articles about current events. It was all about the pictures. Bold, colorful and sometimes jaw-dropping photos of people and places I've only dreamt of seeing. It was so inspiring!

In college as I stumbled unto International Relations and photography, the magazine only became more important to my learning of both areas. Steve McCurry and other photojournalists became my role models and every time I had the chance to travel with my camera, I shot with the hopes of one day making it to National Geographic.

Every year, the magazine holds a travel photography contest. I've never had the guts to enter it because honestly, it's very intimidating to go against thousands of extremely talented photographers! This year however, I decided to take the plunge. I got nothing to lose, so why not!

I am torn on what photo to enter, though and I would love your opinion. I decided to enter one of my Haiti pictures, but I'm very undecided on these three.

Which one do you think I should enter and why? I'd love your opinions! They would be of great help.

And also, if you haven't seen our new Facebook page, check it out and "like" it! You can get all the new updates on some cool things that will be happening soon.

Update {Personal}

Hi everyone!

Forgive my recent absence from the blog. There's no excuse, but I do have some good reasons for the lack of posts. First off, The last week of school just ended. Thank God! It really is an impossible feat to make kids do anything those last few days. They are already in vacation mode.

Secondly, merari.com is on it's way! I've been working on the new site for a while and it's almost ready to be revealed. Make sure you add your email on the tab to be notified on the grand opening!

Thirdly, the Merari Photography facebook page is finally up! I know it's taken me a long time to get one, but better late than never, right? Make sure you click the "like" button to get updates on the new site and other cool things I have up my sleeve.

Feel free to poke around and see some old stuff you may have forgotten about. Oh! and if you are in any of the photos, by all means, feel free to tag yourself and share them along ;)

And because a blog post is never complete without a photo, this is the place I wish I was spending my summer in. There's something so awesome about a good hammock on a breezy afternoon.
