Picturing The Dream

 

Diana ClydesdaleHow did I meet Diana Clydesdale?

 

It was the spring of 2002, she wasn’t Diana Clydesdale the photographer, nor I was Maria Maness the engineer. We were two young latinas with big dreams working at The Eldorado casino in Reno, NV.

Although, following our dreams, took us to different paths; we remained living in our beloved Reno. Years later, we reconnected via Facebook.

The biggest little city must be pretty big for two friends living in the same town to have not seen each other for years. However; Diana and I were able to arrange some time together to “catch up”, we saw each other, and it was like time never passed. I heard that good friends could go years without talking or having contact with each other, and as soon as they see each other again, it is just like they never were apart. I believe that it is true, good friendships last forever.

It was no surprise to me that she was now, doing her dream: photography. I remember Diana was always taking pictures. Any event, any occasion, Diana was there with her camera capturing as many moments as she could. I also remember that she was famous (at work) for giving away (as a farewell gift) a collage of all the best pictures she was able to take of each person.

I am so proud of her. She does such an awesome work because it is her passion. She is also “living the dream”. I was able to experience her professionalism and her work when she did a photo session of my family.

Diana is currently collaborating as a photographer for the Miss Cinco de Mayo Reno pageant.

I highly recommend her. Check out her work @DianaClydesdalePhotography.com.
