Yesterday it was long overdue to spend some time with my grandma so Rio and I went over there and played!  We played with toys, we played with the piano, we played in the magical backyard, we played with bubbles.  Rio started playing with some dirt but I had to put that to an end pretty quick.  Sorry honey...  you go a little crazy with the dirt.  
I love that little girl of mine...
P.S.  I just entered this image with two others in a photography competition on facebook... Wish me luck!

Rainy days

I had all these plans for my day yesterday.  I was going to go to a few different locations for a photo shoot and what happened?  I woke up to tornado warnings and constant rain until about 6pm.  That's one thing about Miami, when it rains, it RAINS!  But good news is when the skies finally parted, there was a beautiful filtered light and I did a little mini shoot with the flowers I had just bought.
Here's to a beautiful sunny day today and a toast to my delicious cup of coffee this morning!

Coral Gables

So this weekend my husband, daughter and I went driving around Coral Gables.  It is such a gorgeous city known for it's trees that line the street and create a canopy that covers everything.  We were driving during magic hour so the sun light was a golden color (my favorite time of day!) and every few minutes I would say "Pull over, pull over!"  and jump out of the car and take all these photographs trying the capture "the moment".  We drove around until the sun was almost gone and then went to our favorite Indian Restaurant for some dinner... heaven.

Her name is Rio and she dances in the sand.
Just like that river twisting through a dusty land.
And when she shines she really shows you all she can
Oh Rio Rio dance across the Rio Grande.
So there she is playing where I played, exploring where I explored.  We spend our lives trying to find where we belong.  I traveled and lived in other countries, but here I am back where I grew up with a daughter of my own glimpsing at my own childhood through Rio.

Here we go...

           This blog was created quite a while ago and I finally am determined to share my photography with others.  I am inspired by the color green, the magical light in the late afternoon, children and capturing moments that can never be repeated.
