Colors and chaos. India has been a full spectrum of emotions. No other place or trip has made me feel so much. It forces you awake in every sense, which can manifest as both a blessing and a test.

If you watched my stories I didn’t have the best time at Holi. In short, as a female traveler Holi in the streets is an experience I would be very wary of. I think it could be really cool if you go to private events or attend in the morning much earlier in the week (other friends did this and had a better time). I knew it would be intense, but underestimated how uncomfortable/intrusive/aggressive it would be. We all crave the “real” experiences, but what I experienced was anything but cultural, historical, or representative of the kindness I’ve otherwise been shown here in India.
-
It made me sad and angry that my very presence as a woman made me feel like I can’t or I’m not allowed to attend a fun event. It doesn’t sit well with my egalitarian sense of self. I was pissed at being groped - drunk or crowds, India or not wtf people? - But it also makes me much more sympathetic to the women (or men) across the globe who deal with this in ways big or small. So foreigners or friends let’s ALL go the extra mile to look out for each other and to ask people if they need help when we’re not sure. ACTIONS at the time mean a lot more than apologies from a hundred people later. I can tell you it meant a lot when a stranger put himself out there to protect me or the numerous times people give directions when I’m lost. Then let’s also do our part as travelers, be aware, well informed and culturally respectful

I’ve always loved those hero stories that tend to come when you are in those low points on the trip. Like when @jquinny told me that he had pretty much sold anything of value to go on these surf trips... garage sales & borrowed money were a normal part of the struggle for him to get a sponsor despite having been so successful on the contest circuit. When we got the cover shot this trip it was more than just a photo on the front page. It really meant something to both of us... it meant that all that sacrifice was worth it.

All smiles after walking next to the Grey Glacier all day. Doing the O circuit twice now - over 80 miles and 9 days - was a beautiful reminder of how truly amazing this part of the world is. The glaciers, the mountains, and all the drama in the landscape. It’s nearly indescribable. Taken on international women’s day on the #BMTMAdventures trip in Patagonia. Swipe to see my awesome group of badass fellow hikers whose company made me smile and laugh all day every day to the point that my cheeks hurt and I have better abs now  (: @oraz55)

Why did the elephants cross the train tracks?  It’s not a joke, I actually don’t know the answer.  I was out and about on a safari drive in Hwange National Park when our guide saw a huge herd of elephants heading for the train tracks. He predicted that they might cross and got us into position. And then ...

 I literally jumped from the safari vehicle as it was still coming to a stop so that I could get to the tracks quickly enough for the crossing. I was relatively far away to not scare them and I knew I wanted a nice low angle with the leading line of the train track. I snapped on my longest zoom lens, positioned myself in the middle of the track and laid down on my stomach. (Don’t worry, there was no risk of trains) When a situation like this strikes it’s important to be thinking on the fly. Figuring out your game plan as you’re executing it. ️

Spinning the globe on this #TravelTuesday to share this image from Lisbon, Portugal that I captured in 2017 while working in Europe as a staff member for a private jet journey. Two nights in Lisbon weren’t even close to long enough to satisfy my hunger for the city of tiled buildings and cobbled streets. I’ve dreamt of returning ever since.
.
Especially since our itinerary didn’t include seeing nearly as many of the famed tile buildings as I might have liked. I’ve had a thing for decorative tile since long before it was trendy. And yet, at the same time, it was very me. The days we did spend in Lisboa. If you’ve followed me for a long time then you know I don’t visit a place only to hit its highlights or its most famous landmarks. My thirst for travel is only sated by authentic interactions with locals, with the kind of meals that aren’t on a menu that’s in English AND in the native language and I don’t want to share the same photo of a place that you’ve seen on 100 other Instagram feeds.
.
The more I travel, the more I long for the moments no one else is sharing. As a photographer AND as a traveler, it’s those glimpses of a destination that I crave more than anything.
.
What about you?

 If you’re ever looking for a way to get a new perspective on a well shot location, take to the air! You can drone, but only if you’re in a fly zone (The Victoria Falls is NOT a fly zone) or you can go up in a helicopter! A lot of people think that helicopters are super expensive but I haven’t found that to be true at all and often pay for my own scenic flights to get views like this.

It was us and two locals at this cenote. They brought speakers and put them all around the cave and blasted music that bounced off the walls. Lots of times it’s annoying when people play music in nature, but this cave had the best acoustics I’ve heard. Swipe for a video... the song that kicks in is the natural audio from my camera. Not sure what song it is, but it def felt like a movie.

On our last day in Udaipur @emmett_sparling and I had a meet up with a group of female engineering students and creatives. What started at a little 15 min talk turned into a full day adventure, including buying this traditional saree and scootering to a nearby mountain for sunset. We sat by the river and talked future stuff, religion in our life, customs, how the words for numbers work in India (lahks and crores!)

@roam Stoked to see what comes out of this

This seaside tower in Laguna Beach apparently got its name from a wealthy eccentric who would dress like a pirate and hide coins among its stones, or so says its page on Atlas Obscura. Built in 1926 by William E. Brown, and rumored to have at one time belonged to Bette Midler, the 60-foot tower you see in this photo reaches from the edge of the water up to the top of the cliff to its accompanying private home built in the Norman-style. Inside the tower is a staircase for the owners to use for beach access. Popularly called ‘The Pirate Tower’, which is a moniker it received from the second owner of the estate - retired naval captain Harold Kendrick - it’s accessible from Victoria Beach when the tide is low. @dante.vincent and I were there this weekend for sunset, when I shot this, and we didn’t have the spot to ourselves. It’s popular for engagement and maternity shoots but this time it had also drawn French photographer @timgrenard. (Nice to meet you, Tim!) Like so many  spots made popular online that draw a lot of people - who seem to care very little about the fact that the tower itself is part of private property and there are houses immediately above - making lots of noise and being disruptive, which is rude to the people who call this beach home. I even saw people trying to break into the locked gate or attempting to climb the tower. So as much as I want to continue to share beautiful places like this, I will always do so with the note that if you’re going to visit, please do so with respect for not only other people but also the environment itself and the owners of any place you visit. Don’t leave trash, don’t carve in rock or graffiti any surfaces. Don’t attempt to access private property. Take only pictures and leave only footprints!

This is post number 7 in my 12 part series of top posts for last year. As I say, better late than never. Haha. As many of you know, last year I went to Zimbabwe in February to do a complete run through of my planned itinerary for running tours. I needed to make sure that my trip would be life changing, beautiful, humbling, overwhelming and organized! Haha. During this trip I was mainly focused on making a promotional video, but I also got some of my favorite shots of the year. This is a pangolin from one of the sanctuaries we will visit when my first tour kicks off in April. ️
