I haven’t blogged in close to 2 weeks and what has happened to the world in that time? Tel Aviv, Orlando, Paris! I don’t talk politics on this blog and rarely discuss current work events but this is enough.
I get angry when I hear reports of terrorist attacks; shootings; pledges of destroying a whole country. I ask the same questions over and over…how can people hate so much?….how does one take a life…or 4…or 49 so easily? Innocent human beings who are just going about their lives in a restaurant or nightclub. Once the initial anger subsides I realize that this is exactly the reaction these animals are hoping for.
I’m travelling back to Tel Aviv next month and I will go to the Sarona market and dine at a restaurant as I’ve done in the past. Later this year I hope to travel back to Europe. To my amazing neighbours to the south….I’ll be there in a couple of weeks.
I for one will not stop living. To quote Lin Manuel Miranda’s Tony acceptance speech (which was brilliant by the way)…
We lived through times when hate and fear seemed stronger;
We rise and fall and light from dying embers, remembrances that hope and love last longer
And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside.
It’s time to let in some light!
My next few posts will be a series of images I made during a sunset shoot down on the beach. Lucky for me there were still some diehard kite boarders out riding the waves.

The other incredible deal I wanted to tell you about is from Gura Gear. They’re having a sale on both the Kiboko 22L+ and the Bataflae 18L from August 28 – September 3.
The quality of these bags are unparalleled. I just received the Bataflae 18L a couple of weeks ago and took it on its first trip last weekend. First impressions have been great and I’ll have a full review on this bag in the near future. In the mean time it is very rare that Gura Gear has a sale on its bags so if you’re in the market for a new bag then check this out.
Now on to today’s image. The Lone Cypress is probably the best known landmark on the 17 Mile drive in Pebble Beach. It’s prevailed on this rocky perch for more the 250 years.
