There are about a million reasons to go to the desert oasis known as Palm Springs, but none of those reasons ever intersected with my work or travels.
Palm Springs was never on my radar until I attended the Palm Springs photo festival eight years ago. Now I go almost every year.
It’s easy to see the appeal of the weather during the winter months. The mid-century modern architecture is one masterpiece after another.
The draw for me is the light. It makes creating street portraits like this one a pure joy.
It’s like nothing else and I really can’t get enough of it when I’m there. And when I’m not there, I’m trying to find a way to get there.
