5th Jardin de Belle Époque

A couple of weeks ago a costumer/ model I worked with about 5 years ago in Moscow, Marisha, tagged me as the photographer on a picture from that shoot she’d just added to Facebook. I remembered she was talking about moving to Germany then, so looked up her location and lo and behold, she’s just across the river in Cologne!…

Life and Website Changes

Just bit the bullet and started over with WordPress, though I did keep my old blog posts. It’s a fresh start to go with starting over in a new country; moved my family away from Moscow and to Cologne, Germany this spring and are finally settled. Speaking of family, that’s pretty much why I haven’t posted in a couple years……

Stokkur, a small geyser in Iceland, between eruptions

  Just loved the colors and textures on it! You can see some of the bubbles forming in the turquoise water that will lead to an eruption. Stokkur goes off about every five minutes. We were there right before sunset and the light was amazing. The hotsprings create a great deal of mist and the clouds looked like dripping watercolor…

Ravens of the North

I just got home from shooting over 3,000 photos at the third Times and Epochs festival, and I just love this photo so I’m posting it event though I’ve got nothing else from this event fully processed. My husband, the man in the photo, had gotten swamped by people requesting their photo taken with him, like always (he doesn’t mind),…

Event Herald April 2013

Some Moscow friends are doing Viking-themed entertainment evenings (“Поход Харальда” or “Event Herald” is the name of the group) and I’ve been doing a side of “your photo with a Viking!” as part of the entertainment. At the last one I got a bunch of the performers, and my husband who was in garb but just there for the medevouha (beer…

San Marino

The Republic of San Marino is a lovely little microstate near Rimini, Italy. Feeling the need to get away from another endless Moscow winter, my husband and I ran off to Italy for 3 days on a “Hot Tour!” that included airfare and a hotel for a ridiculously low price. We spent the first day exploring Rimini, the second in Urbino,…
