The desert tells a different story


No doubt you are wondering what you will find, out there. The Commandant said it for me: “Well, it would be useless for me to try and tell you. The desert tells a different story every time one ventures on it…”


– Robert Edison Fulton Jr, One Man Caravan

How is your week? I can’t believe we’re closing in on the weekend already! I’ve spent a lot of time this week reading, and re-reading the final edit of my book The Desert Around Las Vegas – A Guidebook To Amazing Day Trips In The Mojave Desert. I am grateful for the patience of my editor. I’ve read the book so many times that my mind started to fill in blanks in some places. At this point there’s just tiny things, like one extra space that shouldn’t be there, or a space that should be there etc. By this time next week I’m hopefully anxiously waiting for the first printed copy of the book.

I hope your week is amazing!

It’s all about experiences, and the healing power of nature. Life is about choosing happiness. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. Above everything else is my daughter. A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes. A lot of that perfectly describes me. The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and my art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. Love, Maria

      1. I haven’t been to the Cape in years and most often visited with my wife who prefers to keep moving. 🙂 Photography is almost always my first concern in all other situations so I have little excuse, not that a place’s beauty doesn’t awe me though. The subject or response without thought just came up on another blog which is my usual modus operandi until the last few years when I started thinking more. But I am more motivated by response to a place or subject and, if I am lucky, that is followed by thought. 😀

        1. I think for me a photo often starts with a thought, but the reaction to the situation forms the final result. Sometimes the originating thought is right on, but sometimes the photo emerges to something completely different. I love that about photography. And there’s always more to learn.
