Well, little rumours are mounting so perhaps it's time to just give in. It's true - I'm super, super, super stoked to say I am now a Sony Canada Imaging Ambassador!

I've been using Sony gear for about a year now - especially during this last 7 month adventure around Europe and Africa, I found myself reaching for my Sony more and more over my Canon - so I was really excited to get a call from Sony a few months back and begin working towards this with them.

One adventure is over, but another one unfolds. Let's do this!

What a handsome devil, cruising the empty highways of (off-season) Vis. My husband makes for an excellent partner-in-crime, I must say ...

India commanded my attention and my heart. I had three fast-paced but illuminating weeks there in 2013, and I only put my camera down eat and sleep. I have the photo count to prove it: pushing 6000 images from the one trip. 

While many are probably throwaways, there are some serious gems in here, and I'm realizing the ratio of throwaways to keepers is substantially better than a lot of my other travels. It's reminding me that India is pretty much one of the greatest places on the planet, for all but especially as a photographer. 

This dapper young man was captured in the town of Pushkar, in Rajasthan, just after sunrise, maybe around 7am. I love everything about this image. 

November 2013.

Cairo at Sundown. 

Taken from the top (I mean, seriously, like very tiny top ... borderline dizzyingly high) of one of the minarets at the Al Azhar Mosque in Old Cairo. As we set up (a bit surprised that we'd be allowed to climb so high) the Call to Prayer come on the speakers. That's normal ... except we were about 4 feet from the speakers at this point and thus it was so loud, and with such force that we were all stunned. The entire experience was completely surreal: the pinks and oranges going ablaze, the sheer height of it all, and the complete engulfment by the call to prayer. 

Luckily I had two good friends and fellow photographer there to assure me it wasn't a dream. And this photo smile emoticon

Taken April of 2014.

I had the absolute pleasure of attending a Bedouin wedding in Morocco in February. Part of the three day festival included driving around in a long procession of cars, honking ceaselessly for two hours. (A more modern element to the otherwise traditional wedding, I'm sure).

It was at some stop during this procession that I met this young woman, all dressed up for the wedding. I cannot say I heard some moving story from her, or whether she's had an amazing or difficult life, because I wasn't even able to learn her name.

But look at that smile (i realize it's not in focus but still, you know it's there). I love the play and contrast of a child's laugh with the traditional wedding clothes. This girl stood out to me among the throng of girls she was with - a sort of quiet resilience, sizing me up but willing to give me a shot. Literally. Her friends squealed and giggled at her for allowing me to take this photo, but she withstood the ridicule (whether in good fun or not) to let me capture the moment. What a gift she gave me.

Continuing on with my ‪#‎weekofwomen‬ because I was sad that ‪#‎internationalwomensday‬ was over so fast :)

Did I mention there was flooding in the Sahara? People, there were lakes. In the desert. No, I had not lost my mind and it was not just a figment of my imagination. The floods come down from the mountains about once a decade, I was told. This time they came so strongly, there were even some fish in the lakes that had survived the journey. Fish! 

Probably one of the most fantastic things I've seen in my life so far. 

Taken on my #sonyA6000, in January 2015.

Intensely stormy skies over rural County Mayo, Ireland. 

This crucifixion scene was in a small graveyard next to the highway we were traveling along. Some powerful rains had just passed on our left, and sun broke out to set on our right, starting to set. The light and darkness mingled.
