Photographing Girlfriends in Travel
For the past 6 days I have traveled in a road vehicle (RV) with 5 other women for Whiskey Sister and in search of women’s in history along the Southwest.
One of the things that people have started asking us is whether we are ready to kill each other. The answer is no, though none of us will deny that there have been moments here and there where getting out of the RV and putting a little distance between us, as well as stretching our legs and getting fresh air, hasn’t been a welcome break.
We are all getting along really well and have shared a lot of our personal stories, as women who become close often do. Some of us are mothers, some of us are not. Some of us are married, some of us are not. We come from different places and have different experiences, but in the end we are female travelers taking on the road and learning together. In general, this trip has been a great reminder of how important and how wonderful girlfriend travel is.
While on the road I have tried to get writing done, but with so much travel under my belt over the past few days it is hard to find the energy and the focus to get it all done. But my creative self still craves for an outlet even in midst of sleepy haze.
So, I decided to focus on the women that I am traveling with – my girlfriends – as a way to share how I see them with you and as I way to express how close I feel to them after our many days together.
You can follow our journey on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with hashtag #WhiskeySister. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this more intimate glimpse and check out the sites of the women (by clicking on their names) who have been my girlfriends in travel this week.
Thanks to them for allowing me to capture their beauty, many times unexpectedly or unbeknownst to them.
