Flamenco in Madrid

On my recent trip to Spain  I certainly could not resist attending a flamenco show.It is a music native to the Spanish regions of Andalusia, Extremadura and Murcia. It includes singing,guitar playing, dance, hand clapping, table banging and finger snapping. I have always adored the haunting and sensual sounds of Flamenco and have been a big fan of the Gypsy Kings. Seeing it performed st the Cardamomo Tablao Flamenco, in a dark intimate room, with the dance, Spanish guitars and hand clapping was just exhilarating! It is a not miss when you next venture to Spain! It was the fell of Spain and it’a people!Flameco-01 Flameco-04 Flameco-03 Flameco-05 Flameco-02

Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

As many of you may already know, travel is one of my many passions. I recently returned from a 2 week excursion to northern Spain. My very first to this region. A true highlight of my visit to Barcelona was to finally see the famed Sagrada Familia, designed by Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí . Construction began on the Roman Catholic Basílica in 1882 and continues to this day. It appears that the interior of the Basílica is complete with the instillation of the grandest stained glass windows I have ever seen. They say that the exterior spires might be completed within 10 years. I’ll definitely have to go back. I arrived at the perfect time of day as the setting sun was low in the sky and created the most fabulous light show streaming through all the colored windows!  Sagrada-Familia-01 Sagrada-Familia-02 Sagrada-Familia-04 Sagrada-Familia-03 Sagrada-Familia-05 Sagrada-Familia-06 Sagrada-Familia-07 Sagrada-Familia-09 Sagrada-Familia-08

A Beautiful Beauty Shoot

I had a wonderful inspiring time this week doing a makeup and hair shoot with makeup by Beke Beau and  hair by Ashley Brown of Moko Salon. Our beautiful model was Angela of Click Models Philadelphia. We actually had two models and I’ll be featuring her next week. I just love doing these shoots. It really gives me a chance to work on my retouching and creative Photoshop skills and gets me ready for my wedding season to come!
