Already back!

We are already back, sorting photographs, organizing hours of recorded interviews, and getting ready for next stage of our work. Now i am just sneaking out for a week to China, to meet with our fantastic printers and discuss technical details of printing our Gardens book.

I am also going to tell them good news: Our book Tropical Homes of the Eastern Caribbean has been nominated one of THREE top finalists (coffee table books category) in the prestigious book award in USA – Benjamin Franklin Book Awards!
In less than a month we will know if it takes Grand Prix or not – but in any case it is a reason to celebrate! I bet they will be same happy as we are!

Anyway, I wanted to share with you a photo we did on one of last days of our long, Caribbean trip. In Honduras we visited some really interesting spots, among them – Guanaja – small, practically pristine island with coral reefs and beautiful nature. What’s interesting – there are no roads, and all traffic is by boat. Main town on the island is located about 500 meters away from the island – on the water! It is seated on a patch of land, and makes a tiny island on its own. All gas stations, shops, a hotel, etc. – are there, in that water-town. We did some aerial photography, and I selected for you the view of that unusual town.
You can see in upper corner the shore of Guanaja island, and in the center – this watertown, with a gas station nearby, just a bit below on a small reef…
Looks amazing, isn’t it? I hope you enjoy.

I will try to post something from China, but i can’t promise – will be quite busy.

Cheers! Have to run, going to airport in 15 minutes…
