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 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.
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.
Erlon Da Silva,18, does pull-ups on top of Arpoador rock in Rio. #beachgames
Igor hoists his 18 month old daughter Nayali on Leme beach in Rio. The night beach scene is not so different than the day beach scene. Always lively always family oriented always the most socially democratic place i have seen.
Brazilian photographers Carla De Conti and Ana Rovati are fine photographers in their own right and are helping me with my workshop going on right now in Rio de Janeiro. I made this photo of them while we took a little caipirinha break and my students were off shooting their own work. If you are in Rio please come to our student slide show Friday night on our rooftop overlooking Copacabana
This house has probably been sitting on this Nags Head NC beach for 60 years or more. A house a quarter of a mile away has been there 100 years and within a stone’s throw from an often violent sea. Yet now this one is jacked up and ready to move further inland. The house I live in was 15 years ago just yards away from this one and now nestled on safer ground. Those of us crazy enough to live here on the Outer Banks know there really isn’t any totally safe from hurricane ground. We live on shifting sands. Glorious.
Harvey clan gets a new girl. Michelle and Bryan introduced to their new (unnamed) baby an hour ago. Babies come everyday all the time , yet not THIS baby. Her grandfather might just make her his star model
It is these crosscurrents that move the sand around and constantly change the shape of the barrier islands along the whole eastern U.S. seacoast. These currents along with surprise high winds and sandy shallow shoals have sunk at least 3,000 ships on Cape Hatteras alone. #outerbanks
