Flight of the Pegasus

I didn't forget about you guys ~ I promise! I have just been taking some time off to work on other things and re-prioritize my life a bit. But I'm coming back with new goodies soon! In the meantime ~ I thought you might enjoy this little bit of magic!

Felicia could never forget Simon. Their time together had been the best memories she'd ever had. The last time she saw him was etched into her minds eye ~ that afternoon walking across the bridge. They had spent the whole day together in the park. He had brought his camera and taken her to a secluded area. He opened his knapsack, pulled out a box and handed it to her. Inside it was filled with tiny blossoms of forget-me-nots, her favorite, and amongst them was the most beautiful necklace she had ever laid eyes on. He had it custom made for her in the shape of a serpent inset with tiny beads of turquoise. Simon was an artist, so very gentle and childlike. He would take photos of Felicia and incorporate them into his art sometimes. He called her his shadow~dancer, and she loved that name. They had talked of moving to Bali together and living by the ocean, but that would never be, for he was gone now . . . forever. . . and so was a part of Felicia.

Princess Aquamarina

Princess Aquamarina has ruled over her frosty lands for a long long time. In fact time itself moves very slowly on her barren moon orbiting Neptune in the far reaches of space. But deep inside this celestial sphere spinning in space ~ rivers run through icy caves and a mysterious heat surfaces through fissures in the ground, allowing life to flourish in this long-forgotten land. Aquamarina is a gentle yet commanding ruler. However, as of late she has taken to spending most of her time dreaming the days away in her ice crystal castle, quietly contemplating the losses in her life ~ and she has had many. But she takes solace in the fact that one day too she might eventually die, and be presented with a entirely different life.

Tiger Lily

Her friends call her Tigger, the few she has. You see, Tiger Lily is really a loner. Her best friend is her albino snake that she calls Mercury. During the day she paints in her live-in studio flat, two blocks from the boardwalk in Venice Beach. Her work is mostly abstract. She loves using her fingers to splatter paint on the canvas because she likes the unpredictable outcome. At night she works as a dancer ~ something she started at right out of high school, and like waitressing, once you've done it for a while, sometimes one gets the idea in their head they can't do anything else. Her dream is to show her work one day, but not quite yet.

Postcards from Deirdra

Growing up in Waterford, the oldest city in Ireland, Deirdra was often lonesome as an only child.  She spends her days by the sea where she is most at peace. In the evenings, she spends hours laboring over her favorite hobby ~ building tiny ships to fit inside of old bottles (a craft she learned from her grandfather). She prefers to walk rather than drive, she always dresses for dinner and still sends hand written notes to her friends. Someday she'll travel the world - but it could only be by sea, for Deirdra will never leave the ocean ~ it is her truest friend.

Meet Donatella

Donatella grew up like Italian royalty, the granddaughter of Federico Fellini wanted for nothing. She moved to the Big Apple when she was eighteen in hopes of working with her hero Woody Allen. Now she spends half the year in Singapore where she lives with her on-again off-again architect boyfriend at the Fullerton Bay Hotel penthouse suite, because, quite honestly ~ you can't beat the view. Plus Singapore airlines still serves in crystal and Donatella appreciates those types of little details. She tells people she watches what she eats, she just doesn't tell them it's usually steak frites! She hasn't exactly given up on her dreams of starring in a Woody Allen film, however at the moment she is quite content to be in front and behind the lens of her own camera creating moving pictures & writing her story!

Sunset Boulevard

Taking photographs of exquisite sunsets is one of my greatest pleasures! I feel so blessed to live near the Pacific and to be able to watch the sun set over the ocean on a regular basis.  Here are just a few of my favorites from the past few months.
