The Stories Behind the Photographs
Where do the new Ripples pictures come from?
Every picture you see featured on Ripples’ new website was taken by one of us (with the exception of this background wallpaper).
That hand in the water at the top right of each page is actually mine; we were traveling through Kansas City when we stopped at a fountain outside Crown Center and the train station, and Ryan snapped this shot. I’ve always loved photography, but Ryan is the better photographer between the two of us. From the red rocks of Sedona, Arizona, through the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, the Smokey Mountains in Georgia, and even the picturesque landscapes of Costa Rica and New Zealand will be featured along with new posts on sustainability. We were looking through old photos the other day when we realized two facts: Ripples blog posts didn’t use very many good quality photos, and we had LOTS of great photos available to us from past vacations or even local settings. Ryan embarked on a journey to organize all our photographs, and I am currently on a journey to learn how to use new technology and find all our old pictures. First, a tour of the photos already featured on Ripples’ new website!

About Page Photos: Our History
The new About page features photos from past happy moments, including pictures taken in Arizona, Wisconsin, North Carolina, New Mexico, and Arkansas. You can move through the photos at your own pace by clicking on the small circles below them, or just enjoy the slide show that plays automatically. We hope to use more slideshows in posts, to convey the process of growing organic vegetables and watching wildlife enjoy their native habitat.
