As many of you know, I have been working on a new Photography Book, Just a Kiss. This is a collection of images featuring people kissing in public places. This is the newest image and was taken on the Blu Deck in Cancún Mexico against the setting sun.
Chichen Itsa is a large ancient Mayan city state in the Yucatan province of Mexico. This building is El Castillo and is considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. It is fascinating that archeologists recently discovered another temple like this one built underneath El Castillo. They believe that periodically temples were routinely built on top of other temples and therefore the Mayan culture is older than believed.
Along the side of the Las Islas Shopping Center in Cancun is a strip of bars and cafes that face the setting sun. This sunset was taken from the famous Blue Deck during two for one happy hour and they make great and strong rum drinks.
I started this blog on 02/06/2012 with a post on Captain Beefheart. Since then I have added 500 followers not including those that follow on Red Bubble Twitter,Digg,Facebook,Pinterest etc. I have published 575 posts and over 200 hundred articles for EHOW. Counting EHOW and Red Bubble views my works have been viewed by over 2 million times in 35 countries.
All that said, I am most proud of the 500 followers of this blog. I only know a few of you personally and also am connected to those people through Facebook,telephone and face to face visits. However the rest of you check in regularly, like and comment on my posts and share with me your own unique view of the world. Thanks for reading, thanks for posting and have a wonderful holiday season!
As for us, next week in Cancun, home a week and than off to Florida for two months. It’s time to get out from being in front of the computer and back behind the lens for a while. So although posts will be erratic over the next couple of months they will all include new images from a variety of location so please stay tuned. This is a SUNRISE, not a SUNSET.
On Saturday we are venturing to Quintana Roo and our Westin Condo at Lagunamar in Cancun for a week of fun in the sun. We have never been there before. People have told me that the white sand beaches at Cancun and Islas Mujeres are the best in the world. After all it is where the Movie “Ten” was shot and all men my age can still see Bo Derreck’s slow motion trek across the sand in their mind’s eye. We shall see. This is Ka’anapali Beach in Maui County in the State of Hawaii and still my favorite white sand beach. We shall see.
I took this image when I worked on the space shuttle of a glass cube floating in space. Just kidding I was never on the space shuttle. The image had to be manipulated to eliminate the background and string holding the glass cube. It was shot in a studio and the print was manipulated in the dark room with film masks and multiple exposures. Ah, the good old days.
