It has been so brutally unforgivingly cold lately here in Colorado, and I'm definitely starting to feel the winter blues and cabin fever set in. Good thing I have some awesome photos of an awesome trip to look back on! Almost as good as being there... almost :) I'll say it again - I LOVED shooting in St. Croix! Fun, colorful architecture, amazing sunny light, and, of course, my incredible clients :) Here are a few personal photos from the trip to help transport you to a warmer place for a moment (at least mentally).
(Actually, I cheated... this was over Puerto Rico or one of the other islands on the way in to St. Croix. But I still love this shot)
We were traveling at such a weird time. Everything seemed deserted. I don't know if I've ever seen the subways at DIA that empty! My favorite part of the long day of travel was getting to ride the cool 10-seater little plane from St. Thomas over to St. Croix. The plane was so small that they stashed our luggage in the wings, and weighed our carry-ons to make sure they were evenly distributed throughout the plane. The shot above is taken from the back seat :)
The next shot is the view from our friends Haven and Matt's house. Jealous! When they moved in, they also found a whole cabinet full of cool retro liquor, which I was naturally fascinated by.
I guess it was "worm season"... the frangipani worms eat all the leaves and branches off of a certain tree, at the same time every year. The trees are essentially stripped bare. It was crazy how fast that happened - the worms would descend upon a tree by the hundreds. If you put your ear up close, you can hear them crunching away. The locals apparently hate them, but I thought they looked cool :)
