I met this couple in Bali during my last visit. They were the Priest and Priestess at a local temple and I saw them walking hand in hand in the rice fields leading to the temple. Slowly and delicately, they supported each other across the stairs and broken sidewalks and I walked with them thinking about love and companionship and what it means to them now and perhaps throughout their life. They were happy to be able to live with each during these days cherishing their time together and it was a joy to be able to witness this.
As 2010 draws to a close, I would like to take this time to thank all of you who have been reading my blog and sending me private comments. A special thanks to Tsuru-san who has the record to have commented on all my blogs and my pictures ;). Your comments and well wishes are always encouraging for me to write more. I wanted to thank Wendy and Tom for writing about me and my pictures for their University papers. Thanks also to the many people and (companies) who bought my pictures through the various agencies I am listed at.
Looking forward to 2011 and to the possibilities it brings, I am hoping to spend more time photographing people in their natural environments and also working in B&W. I hope I can take some pictures that will remain in the hearts and memories of the viewers.
May creativity, joy and peace lead you in whichever journey you choose. Have a very safe and happy holiday season with your loved ones.
