It’s Real!

I’m writing this in Sedona, Arizona where I’m taking a last summer vacation before my book tour revs up and takes off!

Just hours before I left I got to hold a copy, a real, physical bound copy of my book. It felt so surreal to get my hands on a tangible product after all the months of photography, planning and editing. Dreams DO come true and I am so grateful for everyone who has helped give birth to my book baby!

So, while my Florida sunsets are being printed and collated into my book, I’m stalking southwest sunsets and soaking up Sedona’s mystical vibes. It’s tough to be me!

Please, don’t forget to share what you’re thankful for here and on Facebook. I’d love to see your own sunrise and sunset photos there too.

Here are some of the photos I’ve shared on Facebook this week – come and say “hi” if you can.

Have an awesome week!

Lights, Camera, Action!

How was your week? Things have been busy on the terrace – what, you think standing there, photographing the sun rise and fall isn’t hard work? It’s a tough job, but you know what they say: Kim has to do it!

This week I went to the movies and looked at sunrise  in cinema. We started off with a 1927 film called Sunrise about a loose city woman enchanting a poor, humble farmer and ended it with Tequila Sunrise with Mel Gibson and the gorgeous Michelle Pfeiffer.  I also shared some photographs of pale clouds and golden skies. You really *need* to click on the Facebook connect button, don’t you?

But my most exciting news this week is that my little book has gone to press – yay!!!

It was like birthdays and christmas and every other celebration all coming at once. I’m so excited to share it with you. Below is the video I made of the presses working on Sunrise, Sunset: 52 Weeks of Awe & Gratitude. I’ve also included a gallery of stills from the day. I hope you find them as interesting as I did!

Thank you for stopping by and have an awesome week!

What a week! My Facebook page now has over 1000 likes! Thank you so much for letting me share my photography and awe with you and if you haven’t already “liked” me over there, there’s a handy button over on the right of this page!

Sadly, this week we lost two stars. Miss Lauren Bacall passed over after a long life and the inimitable Robin Williams lost the battle with his demons. I am grateful for the entertainment, fun and laughter they each brought us.

Over on Facebook this week we celebrated sunrise and sunset in art, sharing work by Monet and Hopper among others. We had a chat about light and some of my lovely fans shared their own photos of sunrise and sunset. See what you’re missing if you don’t connect with me over there too!

I’ll leave you with a small selection of my photographs from the previous week and a reminder that you can get advance tickets to the Women’s Lifestyle Show, Peoria here.  And if you’d like to receive my weekly news delivered to your inbox, simply click for regular awe and gratitude —–>

It’s been an interesting and fun-filled week. If you follow my fan page on Facebook – and you really should – you’ll have seen the beautiful photographs I’ve shared there. I am so blessed to be able to see these images from my terrace on a daily basis. I’ve included a small selection of them at the bottom of this post. Please enjoy!

I’ve also taken you on a whistle-stop world tour of sunsets from around the world. We’ve been to India, China, Japan, Italy and France. See what you’ve been missing!

Today I also want to share something about the Peoria Women’s Lifestyle Show in Illinois. This annual show takes place on October 25th this year and I am honored to be one of six guest speakers. This exciting event has someone for everyone and in the words of the organizers,

“It takes a year to create, but for one magical day each year, the world
stops as women celebrate with their best friends, sisters, mothers, daughters, and each other…”

I’ll be sharing the stage at Peoria with three of the contributors to my book – available to pre-order on Amazon now -: Rokelle Lerner, Barb Schmidt and Dorothy Breininger, so do come along and say hello if you can.

Remember to share what you’ve been thankful for this week here and if you’d like to get my weekly updates sent to your inbox, click on the button over there   —–>
