On our way back from Aguascalientes on the train, our boxcar had a wiring problem so our lights went out. Some people found it annoying since they couldn’t read or see anything, but I did not mind. The other cars illuminated the river next to us with just enough light that it looked amazing.
While listening to The Killers on my iPod, I looked up through the windows and could not believe just how bright the stars were. The only other time I had seen the stars so bright was when I went camping with the Faith family in South Africa.
And with uncanny timing, Brandon Flowers whispered into my earphones;
“The stars are blazing like rebel diamonds, cut out from the sun…”
So many people dream their whole lives of being able to take that train ride back from Machu Picchu; and, I was able to do it with every star in the sky shining bright for me.
Humbled and Grateful.
I am so backed up on blogging that it really isn’t funny, but oh well, I really have nothing to complain about. Its been a hectic couple of weeks, but a really good couple of weeks. I probably won’t be able to backlog much due to the massive upcoming trip I am going on, but maybe a couple here and there should do. The picture above is from our second hotel on our road trip up from San Francisco. It actually made really really good waffles. Me Like.
I’m thinking I might not post all the road trip pictures since I am lacking on time. That means no embarrassing road trip pictures like this one:
What is Katherine doing in the picture? Who knows.
Its official. Road trips with good friends is one of the greatest things ever. Also, before you get your panties in a bunch, the driver never EVER drank while driving. Also, the minorities were never allowed behind the wheel, which did not bother me at all.
I leave back to San Francisco tomorrow afternoon. This trip to New York was pretty damn incredible. How incredible? It was one of those trips where I am almost convinced that I should move here. Almost.
I will definitely be posting a lot about the trip in the upcoming week. Its been too busy having fun to actually update.
Friend: Do you think you will have problems with guys hitting on your sister in South America?
Me: Um, YEAH. Doubt it will be a problem though. She will cut a fool.
Friend: Well at least you don’t have to worry about anyone hitting on You.
Me: Um, rhymes with Witch.
I’m going to need to pack a taser or/and a samurai sword.
Meet Andy. He is an actor and model from Memphis that just moved to SF. We had such a fun time on our photoshoot. First of all, he reminded me a lot of my good friend Aaron, just this tall and goofy guy. But once we got shooting, he acted like a total pro! He definitely knew what he was doing and what is great is that he gave me a lot of great advice on photographing people.
He needed new headshots for his portfolio. While the picture above is not a headshot, it definitely is one of my favorites.
Turns out that cloudy days can make for the perfect light.
