Mangroves are an integral component to a healthy flats fishery. It provides important shelter for juvenile fish to evade larger predators. When fighting fish in Cuba, it adds another level of difficulty as fish will wrap the line around every possible shoot.

Happy Mother’s Day to all those who are mothers and will be Mothers soon! What’s a recent trip you’ve taken with yours? Or want to take?

This is my mum @paintthenight taking time to stop and smell the lilacs (my favorite) during our recent trip to Paris. I’m so grateful to @airfrance for giving us the chance to travel to France together in Business class so I could give her an early Mother’s Day gift. We loved it so much! #franceisintheair #mothersday #hostedtravel

Do you like to visit museums when you travel?

Since I wanted to do a mix of cliché and less expected things during this most recent trip to Paris with my mum via a job for @airfrance - I was so thrilled when @parisjetaime offered us two Paris PassLib booklets to use for the duration of our trip. It includes access to le Metro, soooo many museums, plus a bus tour and a boat ride on the Seine. It was that pass which enabled us to make an unplanned stop @madparis late one afternoon as we were walking down Rue de Rivoli. Because we didn’t need to take the time to buy tickets or wait in line, we were all set to just stroll right in basically and enjoy the exhibits without delay. We wandered down darkened hallways punctuated with glittering jewels, black and white photos and punk art motifs enthralled with the strange yet beguiling mix of decorative art history. Yet it was this view from an upper balcony that caused me to pause the longest. I can’t deny that old or new, I have a love affair with architectural vignettes. Particularly those featuring leading lines. It’s that distraction which I’ve given over to a lot more lately in an effort to have a tiny bit more of a “theme” to my feed. After years and years of making my primary living from photography, it struck me this year that I still don’t have a signature of any kind. In fact, I have many. This type of moment is one and if you don’t mind, I think I’ll continue to seek them out to share with you.  Merci #parisjetaime pour la PassLib. ️ We loved having it and would highly recommend purchasing it for your next trip to Paris. #hostedtravel #madparis #alanament #archilovers #leadinglines #shotoniphonex

Every trip to Paris is wildly different for me, always depending on who I am with or whether I am traveling alone. When @airfrance asked if I’d review their Business Class product with my mum for an early Mother’s Day I was excited to try and show her a combination of the more cliché aspects of my favorite city and hopefully a few things that were a little more “off the beaten path.” I think, and hope, that’s what we ended up accomplishing. What do you think @paintthenight?
•
Yet I have to admit it was often the more cliché spots that did thrill me most during this visit. I’d never been to Paris when it was SO warm (nearly hot) and SO green; so they had a new face on them that I’d never seen before. Standing here on the edge of the Tuileries, looking down the gauntlet of marvelous hedges to the majesty of the Louvre, hearing the birds in the trees, feeling the sunshine on my face, and my favorite language swirling around me as people came and went...was some kind of heaven. I grew fed up with NYC after 8 years of living there part or full time and I’ll tell you the reason I’ve never tried to move to Paris even though I dream of it: I don’t want to lose the love like I did with New York. I want to always believe that Paris is a good idea. I always want to be a lover and not a hater. That, I can do when I’m only a visitor. And that’s why I know there will always be a next time and I will never be done visiting Paris or in fact any part of France. Merci for always being willing to come with me when I do  #parisjetaime #atoutfrance #meetparis #seeparis #franceisintheair #hostedtravel

What a good few days @ascensionbaylodge. Trips like this are what’s so special about flyfishing, @kayla__lockhart did an amazing job bringing this group of people together,and although half of us had never met prior, we all have new friends for life. Weather was almost too good, fishing was incredible, as you will see in the photos. Can not wait to go back, hopefully with this crew, and maybe a few others, for a few more days. Cannot thank @ascensionbaylodge enough for the hospitality, the food. The laid back atmosphere, and most importantly, the best guides we could have dreamt for. miss y’all already!

Before I fully move on from India stories, I wanted to share our Jodhpur adventures with @coxandkingsusa. The first portrait was taken during our tour of the spice and vegetable market in town. We had just gotten out of our rickshaws, walked a short distance and turned the corner into the market from a street that almost felt deserted there was so little happening — and after we turned the corner, the difference could not have been more pronounced; it was an immediate deep dive into sensory overload and an immersion into organized chaos. And yet, this gentleman and his vegetable stall caught my eye right away. I don’t know if it was the vibrancy of the green, which along with blue is one of my two favorite colors, or if it was the intensity of his gaze. But he saw me see him, I immediately communicated that I wanted to take his picture, he said yes and I did. After I showed him the photo, the brightest smile lit up his face and he seemed so happy. I don’t know his name but I will always remember the way his face lit up toward the end of our interaction. Afterward we all found ourselves absorbed into the market’s ebbs and flows and only a few other instances to take someone’s photo occurred before we went back to the hotel. I’ve included them here; the last of which, the man with the bags of flowers, resulted in my being gifted a rose more fragrant than any other I’ve ever encountered anywhere in the world. I even packed it in my luggage going home and though the rose crumbled in transit, the smell of it is still on the scarf I wrapped it in. It’s embedded in that fabric just like the smiles of the people we met in India are forever imprinted on my heart and in my mind. Thank you for this tour #coxandkingsusa  #hostedtravel #sponsoredtrip #IncredibleIndia #PortraitsOfIndia

Thank you all so much for the incredible response to my last three posts from Jaipur! I don’t feel the rest of what I captured in the city can really compare to those images so I’m moving on to Jodhpur. This was our last & final stop on our mini tour of India with @tajhotels where again @coxandkingsusa handled our tours and excursions. It was during our tour of Mehrangarh Fort that I took the first photo in this series of a man guarding one of the rooms you can look in but cannot walk into. I’m sharing more than my usual amount of portraits from this trip because to me, it’s the people that make India truly special.  We actually had a pretty hilarious and heart-warming interaction with him that you’d never guess at when you see his almost stern face. So swipe right to see a video with him & @twheat. It showed me that anywhere in the world, despite language barriers, you can almost always communicate with people when you choose to lead with a smile. Then I’ve included three more images from inside the fort that could not crop to @instagram size without losing something from the photo. Not my usual style but I just really wanted to share them. I hope you enjoy!

Mehrangarh is one of the largest forts in India and has stunning views of the ‘Blue City’ of Jodhpur from almost every vantage point since it’s 410 feet above the city. Construction began in the 1400’s by Rao Jodha and continued with his descendants over 500 years. Most of what is visitable today dates to the 17th century, and the time of Maharaja Ajit Singh. Rudyard Kipling once said it was, “a palace that might have been built by Titans and colored by the morning sun.” If you’re into geology, you might be interested to know that the fort sits on a Malani Igneous Suite Contact that has been declared a National Geological Monument by the Geological Survey of India. It’s easier to see the significance of that from further away and I’ll be sharing a photo that illustrates that a little better in the next few days. 🇮🇳 #coxandkingsusa #mehrangarhfort #jodhpur #hostedtravel

Thank you all so much for the incredible response to my last three posts from Jaipur! I don’t feel the rest of what I captured in the city can really compare to those images so I’m moving on to Jodhpur. This was our last & final stop on our mini tour of India with @tajhotels where again @coxandkingsusa handled our tours and excursions.

Mehrangarh Fort
Monday got feeling like you’ve been put through a meat grinder? Well you better #Belize this is one meat grinder you don’t want to be put through. It is one you want to experience on the end of your line though. #Barracuda must be one of the most underrated gamefish in the flats. If they’re in your #bucketlist we still have a few spots that opened up on our #FlatsFishingSchool in May in San Pedro. DM is for more info if you’re interested.

We love hearing @kirstenalana 's stories about her travels through India with @coxandkingsusa !! NEW: in Stories, a whole day in the city of Jaipur 🇮🇳
•
Visiting “The Pink City” of Jaipur in Rajasthan last week with @tajhotels was a dream come true. It lived up to the hype and in fact exceeded my expectations in every way. I took so many photos while we were there that I could share for a month just about this portion of our trip and not run out of content!! We had the most wonderful guide, Yogesh, with @coxandkingsusa who helped us have such captivating experiences outside the grounds of @rambaghpalace. It was while we were at City Palace in a special tower that costs extra to visit, that I took this photo overlooking the city. In the distance you can see the tall aspect of Jantar Mantar, like a triangle with a tower on top. You can see some of the various courtyards of the Palace and it’s a good reference to help you understand that despite its nickname, the entire city of Jaipur is not ALL painted pink. The part of it that is, dates to 1876 when the Prince of Wales and Queen Victoria visited. Maharaja Ram Singh wanted to welcome them with distinction and since pink denoted the color of hospitality - a sort of salmon shade of pink became de rigueur then and has stuck around into the present day, now by law. No matter the color of where we visited, I found the city to be enchanting and alluring. 🇮🇳 #coxandkingsusa #IncredibleIndia #BeautifulJaipur #igersjaipur #jaipurcity #jaipurlove #hostedtravel #sponsoredtrip #shotoniphonex : @kirstenalana

Palacio de Jaipur
Our Mumbai at Dawn tour with @coxandkingsusa was one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had in India. While you don’t have to be staying at a Taj Hotel in order to book the tour, we were at @tajmahalmumbai where we departed before the sun came up to head first to an area near Victoria Terminus. There we witnessed men sorting newspapers by hand on the ground which would be distributed all around the city I was captivated by the noir light and the almost quiet freneticism of the operation. From there we visited the vegetable market, the flower market and eventually some of the group walked around the fish market while I went with our driver to taste freshly made Masala Chai at a stand on the street. In the middle we stopped to see the laundry which I talked about in my last post. These three photos are from the Flower Market Did you catch my Stories where I tried to share our entire tour?
From #coxandkingsusa here’s their description of the tour which I like so much I just wanted to directly quote them: “Seeing this lively city wake up, gives you deep cultural insights into the real Mumbai, one that goes beyond the glossy glass facades and urban boardrooms. You experience the underbelly of this magnificent city, and understand what makes Mumbai tick. You will find yourself at the clamorous and chaotic docks, where amidst understanding the life and times of the Koli fisher-folk the original inhabitants of Mumbai you will see the arrival and grading of 25 tonnes of fish. Witness a one-of-its kind fish auction of the famous Bombay Duck. You will be right in the center of all the action, as thousands of illiterate vendors sort out newspapers of seven different language that too in the middle of the road. You will understand the logistics of the food distribution in the city as 100 tonnes of meat, fruits and vegetables enter the various markets. These markets are not only a great introduction to the people of Mumbai, but also a photographer’s dream come true. What’s interesting is that when you walk the same lanes a few hours later, you wouldn’t find any evidence of the morning’s flurry” #hostedtravel #mumbaiindia #streetportraits #sonyalpha : @kirstenalana

Follow along @kirstenalana's trip with @coxandkingsusa ! So glad you are loving it!! The first time I came to India in 2015, I visited only Agra and Mumbai. That year I stood in the exact spot I did when I took this photo yesterday, and in those moments I didn’t get it. I didn’t yet LOVE India. It wasn’t a horrible experience, it simply wasn’t one that made me fall in love with the country or the people that make it SO special. This time when I stood in this spot overlooking Dhobi Ghat, after THE MOST INCREDIBLE pre-dawn tour of #Mumbai with @coxandkingsusa alongside new friends from @tajhotels and photographers I’ve admired for years, after several talks with locals who are some of the warmest and kindest people I’ve ever met in my life...... I got it. I found that deep well of love for India that finds many a traveler who chooses to interact with the country on a level that’s profound and almost unmatched anywhere else on the globe. India is a land of the most intense contrasts I’ve ever found but it is in those contrasts that is found a beauty which can’t be put into words. The complexity of this country and this city baffles people who come to study it and enchants travelers like me who crave opportunities to learn.
•
Speaking of learning, Dhobi Ghat is Mumbai’s 140-year-old open-air laundromat. Estimates place the number of pieces of laundry that come through here each day at over half a million pieces. From above, it looks like perhaps a form of organized chaos but the system is known to be uber efficient and reliable. Much of the work is done by hand without modern technology.

Can’t wait to share more photos from our tour with #coxandkingsusa but in the meantime you should check out @twheat, @alice_gao, @ananewyork, @noahleh & @dlcuratolo who have already begun sharing portraits of some of the incredible locals we met in Bombay nay Mumbai. 🇮🇳 #incredibleindia #dhobighat #shotoniphone #shotoniphonex #hostedtravel #sponsoredtrip : @kirstenalana

After a few days in and around Calgary to #ExploreAlberta before #attaELEVATE, we finally began to make our way up into the Canadian Rockies. I took these photos as part of an ice walk with Jordan Ede of Mahikan Trails. They offer walking and snowshoe tours from the perspective of their Indigenous Culture. From bushcraft to plant medicine, tanning hides and making moccasins, they provide the opportunity for visitors to learn time honoured skills which are part of their Indigenous traditions. Jordan taught us all about the plants that we passed as we walked to the canyon and once we were in the canyon, he pointed out pictographs that are 4,000 years old. It was awe inspiring to see and learn about evidence of people living here that long ago. Now the walk itself might not be for the faint of heart in winter because as you’ll see when you swipe left, in winter it requires crampons. And you’re walking ON what is a deep, raging river at other times of the year!! Right now it’s an uneven yet stunning expanse of solid ice, the color of which changes with the light. All that being said, Jordan provided the equipment we needed and he made sure we were safe. I never felt uneasy and it was so much fun!! The first photo shows the wide entrance to the  Canyon, guarded by soaring peaks. The last two show where the tour ends with a few frozen waterfalls in a sort of glen. The spot seemed so unspoiled and wild in a way and yet the pictographs Jordan showed us prove that Indigenous people have been coming here for at least 4,000 years. Mahikan Trails is not on IG either but you can learn more on their website at Mahikan.ca #HostedTravel #ExploreCanada #TravelAlberta #mahikantrails #indigenouscanada #sonya7rii #sonyalpha #grottocanyon

The complexity of this country and this city baffles people who come to study it and enchants travelers like me who crave opportunities to learn. • Speaking of learning, Dhobi Ghat is Mumbai’s 140-year-old open-air laundromat. Estimates place the number of pieces of laundry that come through here each day at over half a million pieces. From above, it looks like perhaps a form of organized chaos but the system is known to be uber efficient and reliable. Much of the work is done by hand without modern technology. • Can’t wait to share more photos from our tour with #coxandkingsusa but in the meantime you should check out @twheat, @alice_gao, @ananewyork, @noahleh & @dlcuratolo who have already begun sharing portraits of some of the incredible locals we met in Bombay nay Mumbai. 🇮🇳 #incredibleindia #dhobighat #shotoniphone #shotoniphonex #hostedtravel #sponsoredtrip

After 24 hours of flying — made very pleasant by @klm & @jetairways flying our group in Business Class from JFK — our #tajness group has made it to Mumbai. [Which was once called Bombay and is still referenced that way by some of my followers who have messaged me after seeing my Stories announcing our arrival...] However you refer to the city, it’s home to our first stop on a tour of India with @tajhotels: The Taj Mahal Palace. Built in 1903, which was 21 years before the nearby Gateway of India, it has welcomed maharajas and dignitaries for over a century. This grand dame watches over the causeway that hugs the Arabian Sea and is near to the city’s financial hub, parliament, stadium and shopping districts. In 2015 when I first visited India, I remember driving by and thinking what a stunning building this was from the outside. Now that I’m inside, I’m happy to report that it lives up to the hype and then some. Like a landmark from a bygone era, this hotel has all the grandeur and the elegance you’d expect. However, it’s in the kindness and generosity of the staff that I find the most comfort. And it’s that level of service, even more than the design, that to me earns this hotel its luxury status. 🇮🇳 #treasuredbytajtraveler #hostedtravel #sponsoredtrip #incredibleindia #hoteldesign #luxuryhotel #historichotel

Excited to be walking the flats of Christmas Island in a couple of days! A new location is always extremely exciting, on the other hand can be tough to decide on what to pack... the second time around packing seems a bit easier, as you have learned from previous experiences. Got some new flies to test on those bones and more meat to toss at the GT’s! In a harsh environment like CXI, salt water takes a toll on gear, so it’s best to bring quality gear, because you never know what you may catch! #flywatertravel #christmasisland #hostedtravel #travel #flyfishing #flyfishingphotography #optoutside #saltlife #flatsfishing #gianttrevally #bonefish #sageflyfish #galvanflyreels #rioproducts #patagoniaflyfishing #passport #adios #love #instagood #triggerfish #catchandrelease @flywatertravel @steelie_danny @sageflyfish @rioproducts @galvanflyreels

After the hike I describe in my last post and before we checked into the @fairmontcll - our #attaELEVATE #ExploreAlberta group stopped in the town of Canmore for lunch at @blakecanmore. If you’ve followed me for a long time you know food isn’t necessarily MY THING but at the same time when I have a meal that I love soooo much that I’d feel bad unless you get to experience it too, well, then I talk about food. And this is just such an occasion. BLAKE has varying menus depending on what time of day you arrive but one thing that will be consistent is the homemade spices, sauces and the singular twist that goes into every dish. There’s an Aussie flair to the menu but I wouldn’t call it Australian food. Certainly it’s Canadian but then again what is Canadian food?! What BLAKE is is vegetable-forward dishes with a spicy kick and a depth of flavor that will stick with you long after you’ve left. We approached it family style, ordering quite a few dishes from both the lunch and brunch menus and there was hardly a crumb left by the time we were done. From the chili-spiced broccoli to the charcoal breakfast sandwich to the yam salad and the eggs-over-breakfast-fries, our afternoon at BLAKE was a culinary tour de force. Don’t pass through Canmore without stopping and to fuel you up for later, pop in to @ravecoffeecan before you keep going to Lake Louise or elsewhere. This moment is just another reason why MAN I LOVE CANADA [and in particular Alberta]!!!! 🇨🇦 #blakecanmore #foodietravel #explorecanada #travelalberta #shotoniphone #yumgasm #hostedtravel #visitcanmore

After a few days in and around Calgary to #ExploreAlberta before #attaELEVATE, we finally began to make our way up into the Canadian Rockies. I took these photos as part of an ice walk with Jordan Ede of Mahikan Trails. They offer walking and snowshoe tours from the perspective of their Indigenous Culture. From bushcraft to plant medicine, tanning hides and making moccasins, they provide the opportunity for visitors to learn time honoured skills which are part of their Indigenous traditions. Jordan taught us all about the plants that we passed as we walked to the canyon and once we were in the canyon, he pointed out pictographs that are 4,000 years old. It was awe inspiring to see and learn about evidence of people living here that long ago. Now the walk itself might not be for the faint of heart in winter because as you’ll see when you swipe left, in winter it requires crampons. And you’re walking ON what is a deep, raging river at other times of the year!! Right now it’s an uneven yet stunning expanse of solid ice, the color of which changes with the light. All that being said, Jordan provided the equipment we needed and he made sure we were safe. I never felt uneasy and it was so much fun!! The first photo shows the wide entrance to the  Canyon, guarded by soaring peaks. The last two show where the tour ends with a few frozen waterfalls in a sort of glen. The spot seemed so unspoiled and wild in a way and yet the pictographs Jordan showed us prove that Indigenous people have been coming here for at least 4,000 years. Mahikan Trails is not on IG either but you can learn more on their website at Mahikan.ca #HostedTravel #ExploreCanada #TravelAlberta #mahikantrails #indigenouscanada #sonya7rii #sonyalpha #grottocanyon

I had to laugh when my #ATTAelevate #ExploreAlberta hosted group found ourselves at the coolest distillery I’ve ever been to in Canada, relatively on its own in a lovely small town in the Turner Valley and it turned out to be the same one @chellelabub had told me about several weeks ago when I hosted the Scotland contest. She does their marketing and boy would I ever want her job if I wanted to do marketing full time. Because I have a feeling @eauclairecraft isn’t going to need THAT much of a boost before it explodes into being one of the most sought after distilleries in North America if not the world. It’s that incredible. Owner David and his team — in a former theater turned movie theater where David once saw his first movie — make a vodka so phenomenal you can sip it, ala a fine Scotch, not just put it in a cocktail. Their gin continues that tradition, able to be enjoyed straight or in a cocktail. And their Scotch is in every way competitive with my favorites from Scotland. I was truly blown away. In addition they also make a bottled version of a Moscow Mule which has recently launched, as well as flavored gins and other liquors. Their tasting room experience also, as if the pot even needed sweetening, comes with a charcuterie & cheese board, local bites and a spicy blue cheese dip that is to die for!! We were fighting over it like we hadn’t eaten in days. I didn’t want to leave and it didn’t seem like any of my colleagues wanted to as well. Should you be like me, always interested in trying local spirits/beer/wine - you should @travelalberta as soon as possible so you can visit @eauclairecraft. There aren’t many people making spirits with this level of excellence. #eauclairedistillery #hostedtravel #explorecanada #craftspirits #craftliquor #albertacanada

Yesterday while I was standing in this spot in @TravelAlberta after a few hours learning from Quinton Crow Shoe of the Northern Piikani, I thought about an article I read several days ago. It was about a female Chef who practices whole animal butchering in her restaurant. Meaning she butchers the meat she cooks herself and she doesn’t waste any of the animal. It’s commendable! Yet it’s not, as the article seemed to suggest, a new or revolutionary idea. It’s what First Nation peoples were doing for thousands of years before settlers arrived to the continent of North America. They believed bison were provided to them to meet their needs and in turn they viewed the killing of bison as a sacred act to be done with proper gratefulness, respect and ceremony. There was no waste, every part of the animal was used and it happened on the land in this photo, here at @hsibj, protected by @unesco and staffed by Piikani and Blackfoot people. Quinton’s grandfather Joe Crow Shoe Sr. was instrumental in making this place possible, ensuring its history and heritage was accurate. Listening to Quinton’s stories, passed down from Joe and his other ancestors, was a surprisingly profound experience. I realized how little I know about Indigenous peoples and a bright spark of curiosity was lit within me that I’m excited to have stoked further as we travel through the province with Dené Sinclair (Ojibwe-Anishinaabe) who is with the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada. #hostedtravel #attaelevate #explorealberta #HSIBJ #unesco #firstnations #indigenouscanada #explorecanada
