    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I got off my ass and worked on these photos, I took the trip as a chance to get back into my more artistic work by doing the opposite of the usual dark stuff I do. This is a trip that I took with my GF of over 2 years, her dad, and soon to be new step mom (he purposed on the trip). it was an all inclusive trip (yay free food and liquor!)
