Status of the Autumn Peal Blog

Hello, everyone.

I hope you all had a great holiday season this month. Maybe you spent time with your families and got some cool presents. That’s all very good and I wish all of you the best.

Now, onto the matters at hand.

For those of you that have followed my blog may have realized a lack of posting consistently. The thing is I’m having a hiatus for Autumn Peal. This doesn’t mean I’m giving up. I will still do video and photography projects. I do want to show more of my photography after showing my Ecuador photos and whatnot, but I want to post them on a new platform to save memory on WordPress. I also need to come up with more content for my videos, but I don’t know what that would look like yet.

This isn’t the end, but rather a restructuring for my blog as I analyze what I can do in the future.

Stay tuned.



[#TBT] Trocar Buttons @ Rediscover Records

Here’s a huge #TBT post for today!

This is Trocar Buttons. I’ve posted one of their videos before on my blog, but now you’ll get tons of videos from them from their show at Rediscover Records from 2014. I really miss this band and I hope everyone can continue making music.

Shutterbug Saturday: Return to Quito II (Ecuador finale)

Wow! Can you believe it?

Since I came back from Ecuador in January, I have been posting some snapshots from my vacation every Saturday. Eleven months later, I finally finish at the city where I started out in the first time I’ve been outside of the country.

This was at the Hotel Gangotena still. It was such a great place with nice rooms and great food. Yes, that is a food pic that says “happy birthday” in Spanish. It was for my sister since it was her birthday on that day.

Thanks for checking out my Ecuador photos over the past several months and for checking out my Autumn Peal blog!


[#TBT] Horse Painter @ Side Street 2016

Sorry for the lack of #TBT posts last week. It was Thanksgiving and I was busy spending time with family and then working later that day.

I was surprised that I didn’t post any videos of these guys on this blog yet. This is Horse Painter. They are an indie rock band from Algonquin, Illinois. When I saw them play, it was their 3rd show ever as a band.


Shutterbug Saturday: Return to Quito

Thanks for sticking through 16 straight weeks of Galapagos Island pictures. This is the part of the vacation where we went back to Quito.

It felt nice being back in that city after we took 2 flights from the Galapagos to Guayaquil, then back to Ecuador’s capital and 2nd largest city. We actually had these trips on my sister’s birthday at that time.

On our return to Quito, we stayed at the Hotel Gangotena which was phenomenal. I don’t think I’ve even been in a hotel this nice before.
