My name is Allison O’Connor. I live in Seattle, and I like to spend my days reading, writing, and going on adventures.
I started this blog a few years ago as a way to document my year-long study abroad experience in Tokyo, Japan, and haven’t yet been able to give it up. I love to take pictures, and find that having a place to share my photos (and a wonderful, encouraging community to share them with), drives me to get out and explore more often, and to pay attention to the beauty in everyday things.
I have a small collection of old film cameras dotting my bookshelves, but mostly use my Canon EOS Rebel K2 (pictured above). I love the element of surprise that comes with film photography, and having only 24 shots at a time to work with forces me to stop and think carefully before taking each photo. I’m convinced it makes me love each and every one of them even more.
All photos that I post here are ©Allison O’Connor. Please do not use them without my permission, or without crediting them to me. Feel free to email me at allisonoconnor22[at]gmail[dot]com if you have questions.
Thank you so much for visiting and saying hello. It means a lot to me!
