Home sweet home with Bryan, Lyla Maryanna, and Michelle. The focus of course is on sweet Lyla, who is now bald just like her grandfather. I suspect that will change. See my video Photo Tip #10 featuring Lyla . Click on my profile link Instagram or see FB page. — with Michelle Madden Smith.

Holi Festival, Dubai

Holi Festival, Dubai . A day to rid oneself of past errors and conflicts by meeting others. A day to forgive and forget and simply recognize friendship. Originating in India, this night in Dubai brought many nationalities together in a unifying warm spirit. Carrie Larose from Toronto, Canada is in Dubai on vacation and rocks to the electronic “rave” that was indeed a part of the fest.

Shisha Pipe

One of my top students in a recent Dubai photo workshop is also an excellent smoke ring expert. Nadja Wohlleben really knows how to handle the shisha pipe so prevalent here in Dubai

Dubai. Baby stroll.

Elephants Tortured By Fire

Screen Shot 2014-03-04 at 2.10.17 PM

It is the nastiest windiest snowiest night of this winter in the outer banks. I am staying home. So I am pretending I am in Malaysia where I once saw elephants tortured by fire to tame them for work.

Public Showers

BurnMagazine

This is the photo The Beach Magazine in Rio de Janeiro chose as their cover this week to represent some of my#beachgames work. Public showers are the norm about every 300 feet of every beach in Rio. All ages sizes shapes rinse the sea salt off together in communal good spirit.

My Sweetest Little Granddaughter

BurnMagazine

My sweetest little granddaughter you ever saw was not all that happy to see me after I split for a month in Rio right after her birth. Lyla Maryanna cried when she first saw me!! Yet I shot a few pictures through the glass front door at Michelle and Bryan’s. I was on flu quarantine ( sick in bed for days) and she has had no immunizations. So I could not give her a warm kiss and a hug and whisper in her tiniest cutest ear that I loved her. ❤️Maybe she felt the vibe anyway. Her bright eyes twinkled at the end. Just what the doctor ordered.

High flying Wilson Crispim

BurnMagazine

I am shooting heavy now in Rio for my upcoming Beach Games tabloid. High flying Wilson Crispim , 20, is a parkour artist. He was one of my photo students yesterday for underprivileged yet serious photographers. Wilson makes death defying jumps that appear impossible even when witnessing. A for real Superman.
