There has been a full moon, in case you didn't notice. This is a shot from my balcony toward the beach. Friday evening I was at the Soggy Peso, my best friends bar/hotel, and actually had to come home because it was cold, at least for the island, 59 degrees last night. This is the end of my third month on Isla, with three more to go, after that, we'll I'll let you know whats next when it pops into my pointy little head. I'm a guest photographer at a wedding tonight. My friend Tiffany, the wedding planner, wants some extra shots of center pieces, etc., so I get to play. I'm glad I'm not the primary photographer, otherwise I'd be paralyzed with fear..........I don't want to screw up someones dream wedding! I threw in the other photograph, of the beach, just in case your somewhere where it realllllly cold and want to dream of warm sand. Cruel right, yea, thought so...............

For me the term "Chasing the Light" has more meaning then just a photography metaphor, It really means to follow your heart and seek out that which brings you joy and pleasure, so remember to "Chase the Light" in your day. Later

Two Rocks and Me

One hundred miles straight ahead is Cuba, I'd recommend using a boat. This is the ocean/rocky side of the island of Isla Mujeres in Mexico. There are beautiful beaches on the North end of the island, I'll show you some of them in subsequent posts. Isla is 5 miles long and about 1/2 mile wide. The South side of the island is the first place in Mexico that sunlight strikes every day. Early in the morning of New Years Day the Mayans gather to celebrate the sunrise, I understand that most of them have been in the Plaza drinking and dancing all night, so I imagine the sun is welcome site.

This is the first of many, hopefully, posts to this blog. My intent is to provide a place for interested parties to view my photography, and also my witty BS. I'm still learning how to use this site, so bear with me as I muddle thru. I hope you having a great day, remember what Jimmy Buffet says, "keep it simple, stupid"
