“You know that place between sleep and awake, the place where you can still remember dreaming? That’s where I will always love you. That’s where I’ll be waiting.” — Peter Pan

For all hopeless romantics out there, this self portrait was prepared by waiting for dawn (I didn’t sleep because I was gloriously alone in the whole villa, save for the staff).  Avoiding the incoming tide, I placed the small tripod securely down among sharp rocks. I set my camera on timer mode and for ten seconds, walked into the emerging light in my rundown pajamas, with another camera swinging in my hand.

This is where I am always waiting, wherever the sun rises. Sunrises are worth the wait.
