My camera hiding from me…

This is where my camera has been hiding from me. In the linen closet. It is afraid I may dump her into a pond with a floating Christmas tree still moving with twinkling little lights. Yep, in Florida we like to watch our floating Christmas trees until end of January.

Now to the real issues here. I am a portraiture photographer wannabe. Have a teddy bear as a model, and don’t have the foggiest idea how to access my digital menu. Watching this guy on YouTube that speaks 1000 words a minute. At least I learned from a sarcastic comment how to put him on slow motion. Even from sarcasm you learn something.

I want the people I take photo shoots from to look fantastic and fabulous. How’s that’s going to be accomplished, I simply don’t know yet.

I need guidance, direction and patience from my friend from above. Thank you God! I know one of these days I will laugh about these moments, but in the meantime, I am having an extra piece of plantain for dinner. Stressful moments right now, and I don’t eat cake. I don’t have any at home. That’s why.

So long my faithful readers and I’ll keep you posted.

Hugs, Abrazos.

A photographer of iconic images…yes, I am! Renaissance Woman strikes again!

Well, I am back!  2020 here we go, like 2019, there we went.  Where are we going in 2020?  I don’t know, but I know I am going to like it.  That’s how I survive, looking at the good and exciting part of everything and everyone that touches my life.  Even though, sometimes, setting boundaries is one of the best things you can do with some elements that come into your life and think that you are their walking carpet.

So excited to share this piece of news for this new decade.  I decided I am going to become a professional photographer.  Why?  Because I love to take images that tell a story, or I can make one up.  I like to make people look their best.  I want to make their iconic images a real thing.

Sometimes we as humans have some images or fantasies in our mind of how we are or would like to be.  I know for myself, I love the image Tina Turner portrays.  That forever young, active and her “I don’t give a dime about what you think of me” attitude.  Or at least that’s how I perceive it to be.

Another person I am emulating is Ralph Lauren.  I watched a documentary on HBO called Very Ralph.  I so love it!  He, Lauren, is such a dedicated, passionate and demanding person of his brand and his products.  He is the portrait of a classic image, at least for me.  He is so sexy too.

So here you have it, my aspirations for this new decade.  A tall order, but doable and as Marie Forleo’s mom would say, it’s figureoutable.  I think I have it right.

Yes, I will continue with my abstract minimalist paintings too.  As a matter of fact, I have a sketch of the next one.  Excited about that one too.

Life is a highway of exciting, challenging, lovely and the not so lovely things, but it is what we make of it.  No excuses.

Happy Decade to you!  May your illusions and aspirations come true or close to it.

Hugs, Abrazos,
