Google Business View for Lucky Hair Company – Canton, Michigan

We recently had the pleasure to shoot a Google Business View tour for Lucky Hair Company. The offer hair, nail, and other services for their clients. So, we wanted to help them showcase their beautiful space to prospective clients on Google. Check out the tour below!

Google Business View for Auto Lab Canton

Shot my first Google Business View Photography Shoot for Auto Lab Canton as a Google Trusted Photographer! Check it out!

The shoot for Auto Lab is composed of fourteen 360-degree panoramas linked together to form a walk-through tour of the auto shop linked to Google’s Street View and Google Maps. The business can embed the tour on their own website just like I did here.

The “see inside” photo link shows up in Google search results, map results, and on the business’ Google+ page. So, it makes the business more visible in the search results because it’s not just text like the other results. The customer can see their clean and up-to-date their auto shop and the customer lounge. Pretty awesome stuff!

DCSnowpocalypse

Well, the second snowfall of the year has been a little overwhelming to the state of Virginia. Deucehartley jokingly coined the hashtag “#dcsnowpocalypse” on Twitter to describe the snow storm as it approached our area. It started snowing around 9 p.m. here in Alexandria on Friday, and it’s still snowing. Some parts of the DC area are reporting as much as twenty inches of snow! Compare this picture that I took this afternoon around 4 p.m. with the one from my previous blog entry.

Everything has been covered in this fluffy white snow.

Weekend at Brampton Inn – Chestertown, MD

This past weekend my husband, Nick, and I spent the weekend at a very cute bed & breakfast called Brampton Inn in Chestertown, Maryland. Unfortunately, it rained the entire weekend, but we made the best of it by checking out the little Maryland town, building a fire, spending lots of time snuggling, and eating delicious food.

The common area of the B&B. 

The B&B had an older, home-y feel to it.

We loved the old feel of the Brampton Inn.

The beautiful exterior of the B&B.

The cozy fire we curled up by.

There is beauty in everything. Even this corn!

Such a picture-esque walkway.

Our lovely scenery.

Cash for Clunkers – Jim Koons Automotive – Virginia

For those of you who don’t know, I work full-time as the webmaster for Jim Koons Automotive. For the past couple months the government has been running the “Cash for Clunkers” program where dealers take old cars with poor gas mileage as a trade-in and customers get money from the government for their trade. As part of the program, the dealer agrees to destroy the clunker. Well, last week I got to see the clunkers get destroyed. Here are a few photos of the vehicles getting smashed!

Before this clunker was smashed.

And there it goes…

Smashed!

Some of the clunkers.

Not much was left behind. 

Clarendon Day Electric Racing Kart Demo – Arlington, VA

This past Saturday was Clarendon Day in Arlington, which is a huge festival full of arts, crafts, music, food, and fun. Part of the festivities included an electric racing kart demonstration put on by the NoVA Kart Racing group and Volta Grand Prix. Below is a photo of David from the Kart groups driving his electric racing kart on a course marked by cones in the street. It was a fun day!
