{Escape to…} Las Vegas

One of the places I have visited in 2007 during my American Adventure was Vegas. It was actually the first city on my agenda. I flew from Minnesota where it became a little bit cold at that time of the year for sunny hot Vegas. I stayed in the USA Hostel, which is located near Fremont Street. It was a pretty fun experience. I stayed for 4 days. On one of those days I went to see the Grand Canyon. The first night I enjoyed the Fremont Street Experience.

The next 2 days I spent exploring the Las Vegas Strip. It was an unforgettable experience for someone like me. I couldn’t decide where I wanted to go and what I wanted to see. I picked up a tourist map and marked the places I wanted to go.

On my list I had:

Flamingo – Wildlife Habitat

Believe or not but this is my first picture of a palm tree ever!

One of the places I had no idea existed was the Mirage: Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. While admiring Zigfried’s white tigers I heard an announcement about a dolphin store which for me music to my ears. Dolphins are my favorite critters in the world (next to other favorite species). So I went in search of that Dolphin store and found my self at the Dolphin Habitat. I loved it. It is unforgettable experience for me. It was the first time in my life I have seen real dolphins. It was one of the two happiest days during my American Adventure.

I had a really fun time, and met lots of great people from around the world. While being there I definitely felt like I was in another world. A world I have never thought I will find myself in. Since then, I’ve visited Vegas  2 more times already and have always found new places to explore. I’m pretty sure I will share them with you in the near future.

It is a cute little succulent that I keep on my kitchen/dinning area window with all the other items I love looking at while taking a break from work. I don’t have actual working space and  I’m ussualy work from my couch or at the dinning table. I’ve read somewhere that if your working space is inviting and makes you feel happy you become more creative and productive and this is the direction I went for with my kitchen window decor since i don’t really have a view.  I Hoep you like it. What do you keep on your kitchen window/working space?

{Color Crazy} Green

Today I will share some insides about the color green because it is everywhere! This time of the year this color surrounds us and can be found in every aspect of our lives.  Green occupies more space in the spectrum visible to the human eye than most colors. We are able to discern the most shades of that color.

Green symbolizes growth, freshness, environment, and ecology. It denotes fertility, endurance, renewal, and learning. It is believed by many that green has healing powers. Green’s warming and cooling effect signify balance, harmony and stability. Worldwide green represents safety. Green is considered the color of peace and hope.

It is a restful color with some of the same calming attributes of blue. Like blue, time moves faster in a green room. Green soothes and relaxes mentally, as well as physically. It helps alleviate depression, nervousness, and anxiety. Dull dark green is associated with money,  the financial world, banking, and Wall Street. Green gemstones are used by many to attract money, prosperity and wealth.

Dark green signifies ambition, inexperience, greed, and jealousy. Green and feng shui. Green is the color of renewal, fresh energy and new beginnings.

In the feng shui theory if five elements, color green obviously belongs to the wood element. When working with green color in feng shui, it is important to have at least several different shades in order to maximize the feng shui energy effects. A great way to bring color green in feng shui is with actual plants that have lush green foliage. Green plants bring soothing element to your surrounding, they visually recede, helping to make smaller space appear larger.

Ania Archer, Green Quotes

{Photo Journal} Beautiful Peacock

I came across this beautiful bird on one of my zoo adventures at Poland. On a cold winter day my friend and I decided to go to a Zoo in Plock. It is probably one hour away drive from my hometown if I remember it right. I love zoos. For animal lover like me, it is perfect place to experience encounter with exotic animals. Zoos have great educational programs for youngster, which allow them to learn more about many beautiful critters from around the world. Zoos are my favorite places to go.

{Random Facts From My Life} New Project: Happy Critter Photography

I have a new project! Sometimes I think I have to many projects at one time and things are getting overwhelming. With all the staff happening in our busy life I’m taking this one slow. Step by step.

How do you like this name: Happy Critter Photography – Pet Photography by Ania Archer. At this point I have to decide if I want to use tumblr or wordpress as my new blog for Happy Critter. I already know wordpress and enjoy it.  Unfortunately, I can’t find theme I like as much as the one I’m using for this blog. I don’t want to invest lots of money in a website or blog that is not ment to bring me money at least not at this moment. I want it to be easy and fun. The place where I will share my pet photography. I just started looking into tumblr and I found a theme I really like, and now I just have to find time to customize it. As soon as I made my decision and finish working on it I will share it with you.

Anyone used tumblr and has some advice for me?

I’m working on my logo and watermark. I have it designed and the only thing I have to create it in Photoshop.  Hopefully I will have time to get to it soon.

Meet my first puppy client Dexter:
