Maui #1


  




(the last one was actually over LA, on our way to Maui...
don't views like this soften the blow of a 6am flight?)


any thoughts on the new blog header?

Creativity

This is an excellent talk by Elizabeth Gilbert about the creative process - highly recommend it to anyone out there who makes things: http://www.ted.com/talks/elizabeth_gilbert_on_genius.html

One thing leads to another

Like my last post, here is another one with a funky neg - I know why this one is weird though. It's because I left my camera in the cold for too long and didn't let it warm up properly before taking this picture. How could I pass up this shot though?  Sometimes dawn patrol takes it out of ya.



This seemed appropriate, seeing as how this guy also likes a natural setting for his rest:


And then this image came up.  This photo always makes me laugh! That's my Tia Gloria, and her dog loves to drink from the hose, mostly when it is sprayed directly into his face.


From a series I started working on investigating people living on the road:



And finally...Paris 2010. I have no reason for including this image other than I enjoy the colors and the layers. Sometimes that's enough :)

Charlie

I didn't post this picture when I took it years ago because something is funky with the scan. I could never get the color the way I wanted or seem to find the negative to re-scan it.  But what the hey...it's just a blog and Charlie is one cool cat.

Big News

Greg and I are taking off and making a dream come true. I'll keep it short and to the point:

We're packing up and leaving San Diego mid-October. After dropping off our remaining possessions, and our super sweet cat Charlie in Chicago, we'll use one-way tickets and check into the apartment we rented for about a month in
Sevilla, Espana!
In early December, we will head to Morocco, and things are kind of up in the air after that. We have some ideas of where we'll go :)  Upon our return to the US (late Spring 2012?), we will explore the Eastern seaboard to find our next home!

San Diego has been amazing; we're definitely sad to be saying good-bye. But ultimately, we want to be closer to family and live somewhere that we can afford more than just a condo.  And what better time to travel than when we are both between homes and jobs?

I'd love to hear from anyone with experience living abroad, suggestions of places to go, where we should look on the East coast when we get back, or if you have friends we should look up when we get to XXXX....any of it! Write to me.

One of my dreams is to get into the kitchens of the locals who live in the places we're visiting and learn some new recipes - any help in making that happen would be AWESOME!

Oh, and if you have any need for a freelance web producer, photographer or SEM specialist, let us know. We'll need some funding for our trip :)

I'll leave you with some pictures from our last trip. Can you believe I'm still going through them? Almost a year....one of the many reasons I've decided to leave the film behind and shoot digital on this trip.

Hope you're having a great weekend!
