Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

Mini hiking trip

March & April are the most pleasant months in Sacramento. Weather has been so beautiful lately that we refuse to stay at home during the weekends. One thing I love about living here is that we can find beautiful places to visit within a short drive. Last weekend we wanted to visit Daffodil Hills. But the location was closed due to snow. So we decided to take a short hike instead.

Luckily we have friends who enjoy the outdoor activities. We all went by the Folsom Lake in search for hiking trails. We ended up finding one of the most beautiful walking and mountain biking trails right by the lake. It kinds reminded me of Highway 1. One side of the trail had the beautiful view of the lake and the other was of hills and big trees. It was really beautiful. We caught the sunset over the lake. I had to take some pictures, thankfully I had my toys with me

This is a part of Eldorado Hills from on top of another hill …

We were trying to figure out how to get to that island(perhaps a jet ski?).

  • Sylvia Borgo Photography: So breathtakingly gorgeous! What a treat for my eyes!
  • Tim Halberg: and to think I used to live in Sac and have been to Folsom a bunch of times! I love getting out hiking!!! (actually need to do more of that locally)
  • Steve: Stunning fine art images, amazing compositions.

A Walk for a reason

Seems like I haven’t been here for a long time! I was travelling to Asia for two weeks, visiting my home back in Bangladesh. It was actually nice to go out of country for a little bit. This year started with a kick. There wasnn’t a day I didn’t work. I was to take this short break from everything. Now that I am back, I promise to post regularly again.

I have been jet lagged. Coping with time zones twice in two weeks have been pretty hard on me. Weather is beautiful in the valley. This is the perfect time of the year if you want to visit Sacramento. We usually do a lot of outdoor activities during this time. This spring wouldn’t be any different(once I get over my jet lag).

First thing I did on my day back to real life is I signed up for the Twilight Walk for Wishes. I’m sure many of you have heard of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Twilight Walk for Wishes represents Sacramento and Northeastern California to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. This year’s event (5k walk) is scheduled for Sunday, May 17th at the California State Capitol. It’s simply amazing to watch the miracles that this foundation brings to life.

This year my team, Sutter Health – Caring for Kids, has “adopted” three new children:

Kenji has Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. After several months of chemotherapy, he received an autologous stem cell transplant last November. Kenji is not yet “cancer free,” but each follow up visit seems to be showing progress in his fight.

Sadie also has Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, received several months of chemotherapy, and got her transplant last June. To date, Sadie has no further signs of cancer, but she’s still in the battle and receiving Accutane in the 4th phase of her treatment.

Sean was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia last February. Sean also had months of chemotherapy, and received a bone marrow transplant in June; he was fortunate that his big sister was his donor match. To date, Sean’s still struggling with letting his sister’s marrow do all the work and he recently received a “boost” to help things along.

If you can’t make it to the walk but would like to sponsor me you can do so
You can also go their website and make a donation. Together we can make a difference.
