"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment." - Buddha



Meet my friend Claudia. She recently received her Ph.D from the University of New Mexico and will be teaching at Dartmouth in a few weeks. She immigrated to the US when she was a little girl and has proven that anything is possible if you really work hard at it.  This Polaroid of her was taken at Angel's Knoll in Los Angeles, she had never been there before and wanted to see it before she moved to New Hampshire.

You can read more about her on Dartmouth's site.

On another note, it's Polaroid week around the blogosphere! I haven't really been participating because it's Polaroid week every week here at The Dead Format, but I've been enjoying looking at everyone's Polaroids on their blogs. Stop by the 'Roid Week 2011 flickr group and checkout some amazing Polaroids.
