City Walls – Lucca, Italy

As soon as I see these walls, my breath is deeper, something settles. I made Lucca my home for a month and, in the best way, fear I never left. There are places I have gone that wrap me up so tightly and so warmly that I need to leave without looking back, forgetting to…

Boboli Gardens – Florence, Italy

Belle Isle – Richmond, VA

Hidden beneath the highway, Belle Isle is a uniquely industrial meets natural landscape to spend some time practicing in.

On the other end there are paths and old skeletons of…
