she’s my guinea pig. ask any photographer how they got started or who they turn to when they want to experiment with new a new concept or technique and they will all tell you the same: family. i am lucky enough to have this absolutely crazy sister who trusts me with just about anything. i was on spring break and not traveling (for a change) and i suddenly felt the urge to take my camera out for a spin. i called anna up and she was here within the hour for an evening of walking around, laughing at anything and everything, and of course… going into the woods at night and making her lie down in front of a car. like i said, she’s up for anything, and it’s definitely part of her charm.

alameth + fran::: love (madrid, spain)

2015-06-19_0005

i love her to pieces. she is smart, funny, and as you can probably tell from the family resemblance… quite attractive! 😉 yes, this is my little sister alameth, only that she is not so little anymore. in fact, she’s all grown up and a few weeks ago decided to move to madrid in order to accept a job offer as well as to be closer to her leading man, fran. coincidentally i had to travel to madrid on the very same weekend for a long-overdue songwriting weekend for my musical project “birds and cables”. as fate would have it, we stumbled upon a perfect saturday afternoon and were inspired to take to the dirt roads and untamed wildflowers and commemorate this exciting new season in their life. all that’s left for me to do is to tip my hat and wish them an adventurous spirit, days full of laughter, and the very best of luck!

Two years went by and I kept hearing from numerous accounts all about how amazing Berlin was. The culture, the history, and the feel to the city was what everyone kept raving about. It was at about that time that I decided to add visiting it to my bucket list. Fast forward to this August and I finally had a chance to do just that. I teamed up with my friend Charlie and we spent a couple days hitting all the must-see spots. All I can say is everyone was right. The atmosphere is amazing. So consider my next few posts to be a small collection of photos taken here and there in order to try to capture it.
