Boys Will be Boys ...... - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

I love it when children are like children, like the ones that chase bubbles with all their lives. What I didn’t realize is that boys will be boys and stay that way for a long time. I had this epiphany while in Arezzo, Italy for its Giostra del Saracino. Over there, I got to observe them doing what they do best.

It seems that they each have a boy in their ever-maturing human bodies, rent free. What I need help figuring out is, at what point, the boy gets evicted. Or does he ever? I mean, do you see a boy lurking underneath this gentleman’s skin?

Beauty in the Eyes of Beholder - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

Ben Youssef Medersa in Marrakesh, Morocco, was once one of the largest theological colleges in North Africa.  At the entrance when we were ready to admire the touted Islamic architecture, I turned around.  My eyes lit up as if they've seen gold.  But wait, there's a guy taking photograph of his girl friend, occupying all the vantage points for my gold.  So I decided to wait a little.  So I waited.  And I waited...  And... still waiting...

When I realized that they were having a full-on portrait session, I caught a break in their flow of poses and got what I wanted.  Yes, the beauty in my eyes, at that moment, was the old man. :-)

What's the beauty that you are beholding at this moment?

Farewell and be Well on the Other Side - Los Angeles Senior Citizen Photographer

Yesterday, we had to say good-bye to someone that's been through a lot and been with us for a long time.  She held on to this life as much as she could and showed respectable amount of tenacity and strength.  However, we knew it was time to say good-bye so she could join her loved ones in a world that's free of pain.  

No matter how well one is prepared for this moment, it is never enough to endure the separation.  I'm so glad that I made this image of her a few years ago when I followed my urge (and not like the other time when I missed the opportunity) so that I will always remember her the way she was on that warm afternoon, reminiscing her life stories.  

Good-bye for now and take care on the other side!
