First and foremost, I am forever grateful to have been able to pick up this shoot for the Daily, UW’s student newspaper. We, Daily photographers, pick up shifts by racing to be the first to ‘reply all’ to mass emails sent by our photo editor and I happened to be on my phone at the right time. I credit good karma.
Having never been to the circus as a kid, I had only the highest of expectations for this show and WOW I truly left the big top feeling more inspired than I had in months. For two hours, I was transported to a magical Mexican dreamland where butterflies, mythical cats and Luchadores came alive and hung from vines and traversed the Mexican countryside.
My dad also happened to be visiting from Houston, so my childhood dreams of going to the circus with my family (in this case, one of the bunch) came true!
Excited to be creating for myself again. Enjoy!
