Travel Prints Sale!


It’s been just over one month since we returned back to the US from our trip around the world. Getting back into the swing of things was not easy, especially in consecutive days of over one hundred degree weather. We have been able to catch up with many of our friends and coworkers. In the process, we have fielded many questions about our favorite places, foods, and experiences. And finally within that time, we edited and posted our best or favorite images.

To say that a picture holds a thousand words may either be an exaggeration or a huge understatement, but we’ve done our best to capture the moments. And while sometimes a photograph is merely a marker of a mundane event, place, person, or thing, we tried mostly to use photography, not only as snapshots, but also as art. Sure, our shots may have detailed stories behind them that the casual viewer many never hear. Therein, lies the beauty, the mystery of travel and the photograph. May it motivate one to meditate on it, to imagine, to create the story behind it, or to dream of being there.

With that in mind, several of our friends have asked what they could do to buy a print of any our travel photos. As a means of support for our experience or as the much needed print to fill that whole on your wall, we appreciate the opportunity to travel and the potential to share it with you. To view our Print gallery, visit here. If you find an image you want to purchase, click the “Buy” button above the image and follow the Shopping Cart dialogs. Beverly will artistically process, matte, and sign all prints before delivering them to you. Larger prints will be on backer board with no matte.

Hanami

It is cherry blossom (Sakura) season in Japan right now.  Hanami, the custom of enjoying the beauty of flowers, usually happens between March and May, and thousand of Japanese head to the parks to hold parties under the flowering trees until late into the night. Sakura blooms themselves only last about one week in one place, and from what I’ve read on my Couchsurfing.com Tokyo forum, there are some travelers who plan on “chasing” them for 6-7 weeks from south to north Japan to extend Hanami. HOW COOL IS THAT?

I was saddened by this, as we are in Texas at the moment, and not in Japan. But to my delight, our Redbuds are blooming right now in our own backyard! It almost seems that overnight, the hot pink blooms have doubled in quantity, on cue,  just for me. So, although we aren’t able to officially join Hanami in Japan, I am going to have a little party by myself under my Redbud, right here in good ole Texas…
