My name is Amanda Milstead and I am originally from the Tampa Bay area, but my entire family is from Chicago. I spent seven years in upper east Tennessee where I earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism and photography from East Tennessee State University in May 2012. I am currently living in Lansing, Michigan while my husband, Rad, earns his Ph.D in Mexican history at Michigan State University. Sometimes I travel and post about the adventures I have. Other times I create posts about riding the bus across town.
This blog was originally created as part of a photography class I took in college. I decided to continue maintaining it so I can interact with other photographers and writers and so I won’t forget everything I learned at ETSU. Sometimes I use a digital camera and other times I opt for a film camera and scan the negatives. I attempt to find interesting stories and images in ordinary surroundings. Sometimes it works, sometimes, not so much.
