There's so much great content I've stumbled upon taking a daily scroll through the Internet. Suzette Allen shared this image over the weekend, but it deserves a little backstory from an outsider's perspective on the creativity of a terrific friend.
"Ms Bubble Trailer" has become an important part of Suzette and husband, Jonny's life. Although I've never met her personally, she could easily be a character in a book series, because she's been a part of one adventure after another. She's been all over the country including two trips to Burning Man, but that's only part of Ms Bubble Trailer's story.
Suzette's love for imaging is unstoppable. She never slows down in letting her mind's eye visions run free. Put a camera in her hands and, she's the equivalent of a kid who just can't sit still. And, be along with her when the creative juices are flowing, and you can't help but catch the "bug."
I've written this so many times in the past, the best part of the industry has nothing to do with photography, but the friendships that come out of everyone's love for the craft." Suzette, Jonny, Sheila and I have hung out a lot together, and every time it's a kick!
I'm not a tennis player, but they say when you play with somebody better than you, your game improves. Hanging out with Suzette and Jonny, their passion for life, creativity, and spirituality have had an impact on me, my photography and even my love for the craft.
Suzette's shooting with the new LUMIX G9 and the LUMIX 7-14 mm lens. Just click on either thumbnail below for more information. And, when I asked her for the okay to share this image, she told me she was doing a blog post to share more of the detail on how it was created! Her blogs need to be on your radar.
Suzette and Jonny are LUMIX Ambassadors, and part of one of the most diverse and creative teams in photography. Keep track of what they're working on, along with their adventures. You'll never be disappointed!

Finally processing some of the amazing images we took in the last month on the road. I have to confess this on one of my favorites--not just of Ms. Bubble Trailer, but the City of Rocks and the Milky Way! What a stellar night, and unforgettable starry sky! This one is heading to Bay Photo Lab ASAP for a gorgeous #MetalPrint... maybe #acrylic ?
Can't wait to hang it on the wall! (I processed this earlier on my iPad, but this one is a little better and ready for print.) #ShoottoShare #PrinttoPreserve @bubbletrailer on IG. This was created from two images, one was light-painted with a flashlight to edge-light the rocks.
