I shot this from the car as I left New York a little more than a week ago. The news of a hurricane named Sandy was already out there and the sky was beginning to look ominous. Who could have known what was coming? Today I am thankful that all of my east coast friends and family are safe and doing well despite the challenges that they have had to endure in the last week. I am thinking of you all every day. Stay strong.
I have been fortunate to live near the beach (East and West coast) my entire life. I love watching the sun set and will always be in awe of its beauty. We raced down to the beach yesterday to catch this view. So glad we did. So lucky to live here.
I don't know why I hate having my photograph taken so much but I do. After being surrounded by photographers for most of my career and having been photographed so many times, you would think I would be used to it by now. Not so. My love for mirrors and shooting into them is not new but even I was surprised at this recent self portrait. Without showing my face, it captures the essence of me. Subtle, feminine, strong and yet soft. The hint of the tattoo on my back makes me smile.
