we are finishing up our time here in san miguel. i’ve made amazing contacts and deepened my friendships w/ my peers. this season has had a totally different dynamic than the one that i had in santa fe. it’s been fun, but more importantly, i’ve learned so much from the photographers, the mexican people, and my peers.

as this season comes to a close, i realize that i have to start a new chapter. and though i have come to understand my transient state in life, it still pains me as i leave people, places, and things that i have come to know. i just hope that my next step will be forward.

I just finished my week assisting with Patrick Donehue, the director of photography at Corbis. He has been a wealth of information! I feel very fortunate to have met him at this time in my life, especially when I am reflecting on my next career move. He was generous enough to give me insight on my work and career and i’m hoping to take advantage of this opportunity.

I have one more week left here. I will be working w/ jim richardson this week through national geographic expeditions. and then i will be off to meet lauren in mexico city where we’ll set off on our adventure through mexico, belize and guatamala! woohoo!
