A few weeks ago I traveled to Aruba to photograph a very dear friend's sister's wedding. While I don't normally shoot weddings, I couldn't balk at the chance to fly to a country I've never been to. Before I headed to the resort area of the island for the wedding festivities, I spent a few days driving around the rest of the island exploring. I found a very warm and humorous people on an ancient arid land. The people were among the funniest and exuberant I've ever met. The history and landscape was unreal. Below are a few dusty, non-wedding photos.
