BBL 2013-2014 | Visit Jerome, Arizona


Why did I include this on my Bucket List?

Since moving to Arizona, I've had several people tell me that Jerome is a neat place and that I should check it out. Since it's not too far away, I thought it sounded like a great day trip idea to add to my list.

Was the experience what I had hoped it would be?

I really enjoyed exploring Jerome, but would love to go back when I had time to really explore it more with my camera in hand.

The details...

A few weeks ago my parents, Kevin, and I had a trip planned to Sedona to take a hot air balloon ride over the red rocks. Unfortunately, the balloon ride was canceled due to the direction of the wind so we found ourselves up before dawn with the whole day ahead of us. We had all already been to Sedona a few times so we decided to head over to Jerome to check it out. I tried to take a handful of photos to document the trip, but I didn't take very many. I'm not very good at combining socializing and photographing. I can do one or the other but not both, and once I have a camera in my hand I lose focus on everyone and everything else. I don't want to turn Kevin into a photographer's widow and/or ignore everyone around me in social settings. That's why you'll rarely see me with my DSLR in my hand at social events unless I'm officially photographing it.

Here's a peek at a few of the photos I did take:

While we were there we stumbled into a kaleidoscope shop and I had a blast taking photos through some of them:
