How awesome is she? For realz. This is my buddy Morgan. What makes me sad is that she just moved to NYC the week I was leaving. Boo.
What makes me happy is that I know she will be there when I get back. Hi Morgan. I'll be back. Hold down NYC while i'm gone. xo

Normally my situation would sound ideal. Wander off to some little french village, and scope out and admire the history, french culture and architecture of what I was exploring. On this day, it wasn't as ideal. As soon as I made my way down the hill to check out the village of Fayence a bus of tourists were unloading.
By bus I mean, an actual mega bus of camera toting, white sneaker sporting, wide brim hat wearing tourists. I was surrounded by it, I couldn't escape their little packs of viewing parties. I wanted to explore this lost little village in France by myself, and what I got in return was a truck load of Italians hoping to do the same. Bad timing I guess.
The village of Fayence was really beautiful though. So quiet (except for aforementioned tourists) and interesting.
Enjoy the above photos of the little town.

I'm staying with a wonderful couple in the south of france. The women brought me to her friend's house the other day. Fayence, France. A little village on top of a large rolling hill in the south of france. It was like taking a step back in time. The village was so europe. I loved it. I'll show you photos of the village tomorrow. In the mean time, above are photos of her friend's land and home. She had an amazing view, lots of hammocks and plenty of grapes growing as roofs!

I have a ton of photos to share with you all, as i've been happily snapping away. I just need to organize them.
In the mean time, enjoy some a few photos I took this weekend. The moon looked amazing the other night. It shined through the darkness and was suffocated by the fluffy nuages or "clouds". The last picture was taken late in the night of the valley and hill, the lights are all the houses that are tucked away along the hillside and the grey in the photo is the light from the moon. I love it, abstract.

I spent some time with two beautiful people last month. R & L are newly engaged and will be married next year! (Which I am beyond excited about). They asked me to snap some photos showcasing their love, and I happily agreed.
To know two people where their inner beauty is parallel with their outer beauty is a privilege. Luckily I met R in college and his soon to be bride when they started dating.
I have tons of love for you both, congrats!
Above are just a few photos i took while spending the afternoon with them, and even a few they took of me as well. Enjoy!
Oh, and please wish R a happy happy birthday (yesterday the 25th of September!)

I'm staying near a little town called La Roquette in the south of France. About a 10 or 15 minute walk is the actual little village. And I mean little. They have a post office, hair salon, cafe and little convenient shop. That's it. It didn't take me long to go through the town, and examine every little detail they had to offer. The last photo is the view walking into town. Very quiet as you can see (except for the fact that traffic speeds through the town, going both ways, on these tiny narrow streets!) and the sideways were very slim. I found a little park that provided a few benches and sat a read for a while. I even got to over hear some residents of the village chatting it up, so of course I was eavesdropping trying to hear what little french I know. ha
