{PHOTOS} Kennedy Space Center - Shuttle Atlantis' Wheelstop

After the final shuttle flight, STS-135, NASA's Kennedy Space Center held an event for the employees to personally say goodbye to Atlantis, the final shuttle to be launched, and the program itself. They worked to make it really special by including food, take home memorabilia, and the opportunity to see Atlantis much closer than is normal. After this, the process of decommissioning the shuttle and readying it for display at Kennedy Space Center's Visitor Complex began. You can see pictures of this process here at Florida Today.

{PHOTOS} Under the Sea at the New England Aquarium

In July, my husband and I had the opportunity to visit Boston, Massachusetts. We were attending a wedding nearby in Maine so it was a great time for me to (finally!) visit Boston. You know how most people have that one place they have always wanted to visit? For me, the one place in the USA I had dreamt of visiting since I was a kid was Boston. I don't know if it was the history, having family in Massachusetts, or the wonderful images of old buildings and city life I had always looked at but something about it really sparked my interest.

The good news is - Boston did not disappoint. I fell in love and it was very difficult convincing me to leave.

We were lucky and got to meet up with my cousin and her two sons one of the days we were there. I couldn't remember having visited an aquarium before, so we hit up the New England Aquarium to spend some quality time together. I had a lot of fun getting pictures. I hope you enjoy them as well!

I have picked my personal favorites, but if you'd like to see them all, head on over to my NEW portfolio website (yup - a NEW one) where you can also see all of the pictures without watermarking. The intention is this will contain my entire portfolio. I will keep my Etsy account as well, but this provides a much more visually appealing way to see my current and past photos. It's still a work in progress - so if you spy any dead-ends or anything seems wonky, feel free to let me know (aspiringimagesbyrachel@gmail.com). Plus, keep checking back as I will be continually adding new photos (or oldies but goodies).
