For those of you who ever spent time on Craigslist laughing at the frequently ridiculous posts, this blog is for you. 😉

One of the alternate titles for this shot is: “Mist Connections”

Your soft shadow drew me in. Your rough,  indomitable exterior held my attention, for what felt like years, as I carefully soaked up every detail of you with my eyes. You coyly tried to hide behind a thin veil of fog, as if you knew what I did…that this was love at first sight. But not a simple, effortless love. No. This was going to be heated, passionate, make you scream “I fucking love you!” kind of love.

Suddenly, the light hit you, like a sign from the heavens, in the most beautiful way, and I had to capture this moment. It was the only way I’d have you forever. Soon, I’d have to leave for the next location, where I would inevitably fall in love all over again, with someone (thing/subject) else I couldn’t have.

But we will always have this moment. And it will be perfect.

:-p

Okay, but in all seriousness, this is Corfe Castle in Southern England and it’s part of their National Trust system.  It’s a lovely spot, which I did thoroughly enjoy visiting.  Probably a little too much, since we got wrapped up in shooting here and were late for our ticket time at Stonehenge (and had to beg to be let in. haha You can’t take a photographer anywhere….)

Worth it though!

I’m not a slave of darkness, I am the slave of light. – Rumi

When I went to Peru in 2013, I had Machu Picchu on my mind.  It would be hard not to. MP is one of the most historically impressive, well-marketed sites in the world.

The Sacred Valley is so much more than just MP though. This area of Peru is steeped in history, culture, beautiful Incan sites all nestled among gorgeous mountains, valleys and rivers. It is almost impossible not to fall in love with the place.

This image of sunset at Chinchero, one of many beautiful sites in the Sacred Valley of Peru, will be part of an upcoming article in Light & Landscape Magazine.  The magazine will be available through iTunes, so all you iUsers out there, watch for it!
