|MY ADVENTURE CALLED LIFE|
A good life should be lived without a GPS and always stuck in construction, trying to find your way out. In other words, live life with detours. It’s quite often that we want to take the easy way out and just get the upgrade and have a GPS in the car. That way there is always some direction to be given and if you get lost it will redirect you to the right path. On several occasions my life has been altered because I took what seemed to be a wrong turn. Some of my best photoshoots have happened because of this. I have found some really interesting restaurants with some of the greatest food and also found quaint little cafes with delicious coffee. I entered obscure places because a random stranger, standing outside the door, said, “This place is fantastic.” Quirky corner shops are found on side streets, not main roads and the most beautiful views are not found in places packed with people. Getting lost leads to great finds: craftsmen, dusty bookstores, ancient or new artisans, half-hidden villages, family businesses, and other wonders. Our daily lives are our main roads. Other people’s worlds, whether real or fictional, are side-trips, holidays -- detours. My trip might take you into Michael Mina’s RN64, a top chef’s kitchen or the history of the country in which you sit and read. One thing is certain: see the detour in a new way. This site is composed of detours: a glimpse of a racetrack meant for the country stuck in a metropolis, classic cocktails with a new twist, quiet spots in a busy city, rollerblading clubs to rodeo junkies, ice to fire, gadgets and tools. . . food, wine, art, travel, and more -- and, a serving of off-road guides, people who are knowledgeable and passionate about their fields, their homes, your detours. Follow my work, come and let me show you the way I see it on my detour called life.
