PhotoGirlTravels Chicago 2I know…that’s a really large bag! I took this photo in Chicago, and I seriously can’t remember what was in it. Any suggestions on what to do when I go back? Besides shop 😉

Photo shot on balcony of Edgewater Hotel in Seattle Washington at sunset. Would you like a print? Please click on “Contact”. My photography is printed on aluminum. Utilizing an advanced process which infuses dyes directly into the metal, the colors and saturation are really amazing. In addition, your print will be displayed using mount blocks which float the image ½ inch off the wall.

Got it Covered

Today it’s raining in “sunny” California. When you’re packing for your trip, whether it be short or long…bring a hat. Especially good if you were born with curls. Rain does not make for good hair weather!

When you’re packing for your trip, whether it be short or long…bring a hat. Especially good if you were born with curls. I have an entire shelf of baseball caps and never leave home without one. I grew up in New Mexico so the hat in the photo is one of my favorites.

Mermaid

I love photographing shadows. I’m sure I drive my friends and family nuts when I see a really good one. I’ll either have them stand / pose or insist that we MUST return to that perfectly lite sidewalk and rewalk the walk. Whether it’s a person or an object, I am constantly fascinated by the visual impact of a shadow. Simply put, a shadow is the creation of darkness through the interception of light.  But I think shadows are free-spirited images of ourselves or, the object. Shadows are whimsical, difficult to control, extending this way and that. Sometimes they are bold and elongated out making us feel like tall giants.  Other times they are small or cannot be seen. This image was taken as I was walking in the parking lot at Compo Beach in Westport, CT. Anyone know why there was a “mermaid” effect? (PS, if you’re traveling solo, which I hope you will, look for your shadow.  Your free-spirited side is always good company.) Click to Follow!
