My Favorite Movie of All Time: Turkish Delight!!!

Turkish Delight or Turks Fruit is a artfully raw and some what brutish Dutch film from 1973. Directed by Paul Verhovens and shot by Jan De Bont . This film is based on one of the best-selling Dutch books Turks Fruit a twisted romantic tale of bohemian love.  Rutger Hauer plays Eric Vonk a poor and strong-willed artist who falls in love with the young and free-spirited Olga Stapels played by Monique Van De Ven. The cinematography is unique and inspiring and the colors are incredibly vivid!! I am always mesmerized by the starring actors and how perfectly they fit their roles. If you like romance, sex, violence, art, fashion and the 1970s you have to see this film!!! But just a warning it really isn’t your typical chick flick….

Disposable Camera #41/Christmas in Mexico

I had the great pleasure of going to Mexico for my very first time this Christmas. The trip was lovely full of hot weather, warm swims, motor boat rides, Mexican moon shine, scorpions, whales, yummy food, walks in the jungle, family and a handful of unexpected friends that I ran into. I diffidently couldn’t ask for much more…
