    And there are sunsets that speak to your soul! My time in the province of the Samana in the Dominican Republic awarded me lots of time in the ocean- despite the fact that there is not much left to photograph underwater except gorgeous seagrasses and urchins (please let's #saveourocean) I became fixated on the velvet of the ocean surface and the stunning sunsets. Oceanscapes like this speak to my essence, half mermaid half woman.

    Story 1

    Viscous, textural, vivid. Binding sky to sea, bleeding light into darkness. The buoyancy of the medium is evidenced, and the conflicting truth that it suspends within it: the ephemeral nature of time against the timelessness of nature.
