The roar of the falls became louder as we continued down the slick path of the Lower Argentine Trail. Mist rained down on our hoods and eyelashes and soaked into the crevices of our sleeves, and socks. Power. There is no better word to describe the sound of 2 million liters of water per second, pouring over an edge and plummeting hundreds of feet down into the Rio Iguazu Paraná . Travel and photography have two very important things in […]

“Bienvenida a BonBon.” His flip flops slapped against the floor as he came forward extending his hand in welcome. It was an easy beginning to a night hosted, prepared and served by the same man in his board shorts, and saturday afternoon tee.

When I arrived at the Tidal Basin of the Potomac River where the famous Cherry Blossom Trees bloom every Spring, I was stunned at their delicious cotton candy beauty.

I have a very special place in my heart for Jordan and to date have never felt so welcome in a country as a photographer.

I was raised in […]
