Another shot from our weekend mini-adventures. The water was a little too cold to go in past our knees, despite the hot day. Soon.

The weather is warm and we are exploring locally, both missing the carefree days of Cricket travel and appreciating the comforts of home.

There are endless ways to play with the geometry of these sculptures in -- like a child with giant blocks, he aligned them across the landscape in ways both predictable and surprising. Sometimes the symmetry is what attracts us. Sometimes it's a subtle shift from the expected. Here, creates a sense of balance.

We tent-camped in the valley of a dune, which allowed us to play with our cameras well into the dying light of the evening. I love the ethereal colors of sand and sky, and how a slow shutter speed makes me look like I am taking flight -- or like you are .

I received an honorable mention this week in the challenge. A big thank you to judges and for the selection. Thank you and a kiss to my photographer and travel companion, who also makes this possible. 💛🖤💛

curious_cricket: Know yourself. Be honest with yourself. Find the

Know yourself. Be honest with yourself. Find the places on earth that make you glad to be alive. Spend time THERE. This is both about travel and, I think, about growing up. It's too easy to think we "should" do things that others like, that we "are supposed to" enjoy certain places, that it's important to check adventures off of a list. I hated a lot of the desert, even the fabulous parts, and I loved . It turns out that art can fill my soul better than some beautiful landscapes. Time is precious. It worth it to focus on what feels personally exciting.

In Joshua Tree National Park, I pushed the boundaries of my comfort zone. I wanted to climb and scramble up a series of rocks but I was afraid. I needed to learn to trust that I could tell the difference between smart fear, about the limits of my physical abilities, and psychological fear, about the limits of what I can imagine myself doing. (Link in profile to full story.)

I made this pose often over the course of our travels. Of all the times I turned my back to the camera and stretched my arms out to the landscape, this remains a favorite photo. The tracks draw the eye into the image. My arms mimic the horizontal lines of the railroad ties. The sky is so alive. The land is wide open.

We stayed out on the dunes past sunset to capture the magical glow. Then, almost instantly, it was dark. But in that in between, it's like being in a giant James Turrell art piece. The world is our art. •••••

Marfa, TX is an oasis of creativity and culture in the desert of west Texas. We enjoyed the Donald Judd sites and got creative here at Prada Marfa, one of the more surprising desert features that you might encounter.
