On one girl’s #lighthouseobsession

I guess you could say I have traveled a considerable amount being only 26 years-old, and throughout my ventures I have always had this “thing” for lighthouses, photographing them since about three or four years ago beginning with the Lorain West Breakwater Light when I was living in Cleveland. Now, it has turned into somewhat of a #lighthouseobsession.

One of the more fascinating things about the whole idea of #lighthouseobsession is that anywhere along the coastline or considerable body of water there is bound to be one somewhere, making my travels almost incomplete without capturing the world’s lighthouses one small town at a time.

So, it might take me until I die to see the world’s lighthouses (let’s be real: I probably never will see them all), but for now I am going to sure as hell do the best I can (there are over 13,000 on the planet!).
