I love black and white photography and once upon a time it used to be all there was before color came along. I believe it has come a long way and today black and white photography no longer presents a lack of luster and vibrancy, but often adds drama and intensity to the overall pictures. I love the stark contrasts that seem to tell a story all of their own and the beauty that comes to the forefront without competing for the limelight. 

I loved how the black and white picture turned out from yesterdays hike. The landscape beckoned for the drama only a black and white can bring to the table and yet there was something more I wanted to share with you. I’m surrounded by some of the bluest waters you could ever imagine and I felt like I was depriving you of something. While the black and white remains a favorite, I cannot deny you the blue….


Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. Wow…blue is beautiful 😎… don’t ask how many times I sit in front of my Mac helplessly trying to decide if I like better the monochrome or color version of my photo. I like your approach….show both, but not side-by-side. Have a great Sunday!

  2. Beautiful. Which place is this ? I love the snaps. And I love the blue colour aswell… it’s so royal, noble , serene, landscaped, and nature’s key ingredient. This was simply amazing. An amazing treat for my eyes to watch.

  3. I agree it depends on the mood for me too. I love black and white photography for what it is, and for the dramatic timeless look that it conveys. This place is truly amazing in both views. and I appreciate seeing it in its full glory 🙂 I wonder how the shot would look if you mixed them… just leaving the blue water in color. Lol
