Behind the Shot
With Athena Carey

This dazzling trio of images comes from our good friend Athena Carey, who recently won 3rd place in the 2013 International Photography Awards – Travel & Tourism category. Athena travels all over the world to capture the beauty it has to offer, and to teach others how to do so through on-location and interactive workshops of many types and skill levels. Congratulations to Athena for the honors – we’re proud to be your camera support of choice! Be sure you check out more of her work at AthenaCarey.com!

Alone but strong, Bád Eddie rests in the bay, calling out to those of us who can hear and understand her. Hers is not a song of sorrow, loneliness, nor discontent, but rather a sweet melody of serenity. An invitation to stand silently with her for a few moments and forget the rest of the world. To be at peace in this moment, in this place, with yourself. These three photos are my offer to you, to step outside of your reality and share with me a few moments of quiet, contented serenity. -Athena Carey
