Back in March, I had the chance to escape a still wintery NY and trade it for the warm humidity of Cartagena. When Cuyana asked if I could tag along on their summer campaign shoot in Cartagena and capture some BTS and travel photos, my answer was an enthusiastic yes. I was excited to explore the city and take in its beautiful colors, facades and textures. When I got there, I had to stop myself from photographing every nook and cranny. Below is a selection of film scans from my Leica M6 (sprinkled in with a few digital shots).

As a little bonus, Cuyana and Artifact Uprising partnered and created a gorgeous lay-flat photo book of my Cartagena images, as well as put together this write-up about intentional travel, which I also contributed some words to.

I swear I didn't even ask for a pink cover but they must have read my mind (or my blog hah). You can easily design your own book here. Besides the great feeling of putting your work in print, making one of these books is also a great exercise in really editing down your work and choosing the best representation of your subject matter.

Double pink

It's entirely possible I'll look back on these months in a few months and gag at all the pink pieces I've acquired, but for now, I'm enjoying the proliferation of any and all items being made in this so-called "millennial pink." I've also been on the biggest vintage jean buying kick ever. Whether I'm finding the jeans at vintage stores, ebay, or etsy, I continue to be hungry for more. I've found that boys' or men's jeans work best on me when I'm going for that high-waisted relaxed fit. Hopefully I can share some vintage jean hunting tips when I've been at this for a few more months.

I've long wanted to visit Joshua Tree National Park; visions of purple-y dusk skies and bristly Joshua trees dotting the horizon fed my photographic sensibilities well. Of course I wasn't exactly prepared given my limited time on this trip. I didn't even pack sneakers. So my ability to properly explore was limited (every five steps, I'd have to empty my sandal of rocks and sand), but it was a worthwhile visit nonetheless. I realized how much I love the desert landscape on this trip, much more so than beaches or mountains. I love the dry heat and how quickly it cools down when the sun goes down, and I love the natural textures that are so lacking in my city life.
