Foodscapes


December 12, 2013

National Geographic “Your Shot” community is such a visual discovery through the lens of everyday photographers, travelers, and spontaneous adventurers. They posted a “foodscape” assignment and we immediately thought about my uncle Jong whom we recently visited during our stay in the Philippines. He’s quite a man of the wild, knows how to fix anything, build anything, catch anything, and cook everything. We have a little family compound by the ocean off of the island Mindoro. Below is his photo captured by Aaron as he cooks what he’s caught for us over an open fire. Below this photo are the top photos from the NCS foodscape assignment. Aren’t they incredible?! So many stories these photos have captured. They open our eyes to wonder, and evoke a sense of adventure.

My near and dear friend Tayler has one of the most contagious hearts I've ever known. I've only known her for a few years - but I feel like I've know her for lifetimes. She's a true inspiration for creativity and compassion and I was honored to see her embody her inner Goddess in our Woodstock Caftan!
