So Many Experiences...
...to share with you about my trip to New Mexico. I'm going to start with this one because I actually have the visuals to go along with my story. While Sharna, my reiki practitioner and now gal pal, and I were waiting for the light to fade to that oh-so-golden moment, Eric & Tatiana happened upon the area where we were shooting (more of that to come). They drove in from Santa Fe, about an hours drive, with their 2 dogs, Zeus and Scooby Doo, a bottle of wine and some sushi. Yep--they drove all the way to this spot to simply sit in one of the openings of this structure, take in the view, share some wine (no glasses, which I loved), a nibble and the most magical sunset you can imagine. When you get regular sunsets such as the ones you can see for miles in New Mexico, it becomes somewhat of a ritual to slow down and take a moment or two to enjoy such majesty, and hopefully with a loved one.
So, meet Eric & Tatiana. Two very lovely and interesting folks I had the pleasure of spending time with while photographing in New Mexico. While waiting for the light, I started taking photos of the puppy dogs (ok...not puppies at all) because I just couldn't help myself. Zeus was happy to lay so regally and take in all the sites, while Scooby Doo was curious enough to follow us at a distance while shooting, then eventually became my steadfast friend and leeaaaaaaaaned into me, begging for any kind of scratch I was willing to give. And I just couldn't help myself but to take a few photos of Eric & Tatiana too. I loved them sitting up there, so close to each other as they chatted away with each other, sharing some laughs, hugs and even a few silent moments. I took their email address with a promise to get these images to them. I'll be checking that off of my To-Do list later tomorrow.
I'm happy to say my trip to New Mexico is filled with little stories such as this and I've written them all down so I don't forget. I'll get to those eventually, but for now just take a look at all this beauty.
