I recently completed a three-day-long assignment covering two cities in Morocco and am looking forward to sharing some of the images with you once they have been cleared. I can’t share the images yet and shouldn’t mention the subject’s name in order to avoid jeopardizing my good fortune, though I will mention that it was an incredible experience and I hope to receive another assignment like this again. I appreciate the opportunity that was given to me and thank all of the people who came together to make it happen. You guys are the best.
V and I recently loaded the Wagon Queen Family Truxter up and headed off to Spain with my family. We once again based our adventure out of Tarifa, though this time we actually made it out-of-town and managed to explore a bit of Southern Spain. It was beautiful.
Life has a certain way of obliterating any plans to revamp websites and produce portfolios (the kind that elevate one’s middling photography into a stellar form of expression that causes art buyers to quiver in their boots and fight over your oldest edits). That’s just fine with me.
The Padrão Descobrimentos / Monument to the Discoveries is located on the Lisbon waterfront and across the street from the Jerónimos Monastery. The monument is beautiful – one must see it to appreciate its form and aesthetic accomplishment.
The pediment atop City Hall, Lisbon, Portugal.
A tomb housing the mortal remains of Luís de Camões, the Portuguese poet and chronicler of the Age of Discovery, inside of the Jerónimos Monastery in Lisbon, Portugal. The monastery is located across the street from the Belém Tower and the Padrão dos Descobrimentos. I recently visited Lisbon and was blown away by the beauty of the city and the warmth of its people. One week was nowhere near enough time to explore the city and I am looking forward to returning soon.
We aren’t silly and we certainly didn’t just fall off of the turnip truck – our furry buddy from the other day was interested in more than just looking cute and purring / chirping at us during lunch. Specifically, he surely thought that we were his meal ticket to a fancy seafood lunch. Barring a fresh seafood lunch, he may have settled for a squab pastilla…or just the main ingredient.
