A Bit of Bali For You

 My brother's sister -in-law that was considered for the part of Made in "Eat Pray Love"
Unfortunately she wasn't all that interested. This photo was taken 8 or 9 years ago.

A new carving that becomes ancient looking after just a few tropical seasons.

A view from my brother's house near Ubud.
He designed the house and all the details down to the fan shaped infinity pool that overlooks a gorge.

I've been fortunate to visit Bali three times now since my artistic brother Dan has made it his home and started a family in Ubud.  He's been traveling there since the seventies. Ubud was just a small village with one restaurant when he made his first trip and spent a year painting and soaking in every aspect of Balinese culture. He's married into a family of dancers. His three year old daughter Natalee already exhibits a talent for classic Balinese dance moves that are witnessed any time music is played.

Most of these photos were taken with my much outdated Sony Mavica except for the last one.


  1. these pictures are beautiful, I couldn't even imagine living around such beauty.

  2. Oh those offerings look yummy, what are they? I didn't realize Dan lived in Bali, nor did I know the depth of his love for that island and its people.
    I still have my Mavica somewhere, I loved it. One day I'll get a real camera.
    Thanks for sharing the Brilliant Photos - bets
