My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this past weekend at the Southwest Art Festival in Indio, California.
I had a fabulous time with my camera!
I have posted several art pieces that caught my eye and have so much more to post over the days to come. Meeting some of the artists was very special.
I am posting some of them at work with their craft on this post.
This little girl enjoyed watching this artist for quite a long time.
We were so amazed at the beautiful photography displayed here.
The photographer, Youssef Ismail, is from northern California and hosts weekend photo trips to breath taking places.
I thought this camera was just an "old" camera on display for historical purposes.
I was wrong!
This camera belongs to the photographer and is used exclusively.
I have his card and website link just in case I decide to go on one of the weekend trips.
Youssef Ismail's website is: http://www.organiclightphoto.com/
The photography on this website is breath-taking and well worth a visit!
He joked about people spending more time photographing him with this camera than taking their own photographs of the amazing landscape before them!
And, this man!
What hauntingly beautiful sounds came from this flute...
which he crafts himself.
