On the way to Milford Sound, you pass over a bridge spanning the Tutoko River. The views both up and down the river here are amazing! It’s actually a bridge-over-a-bridge… you can see the white railing of the old one over to the right of this photo. What was funny about taking pictures from there was that you had to stand on the old bridge. And it moved. Every. Time. Someone. Walked on it. With 20 of us, it became this ballet of… “STOP! annnnnnd hold that position. Wait for it… click-click-click (etc.)… Ok now you can move!” Rinse and repeat. It was pretty funny. But we all got our shots in a most cooperative fashion – and I think it actually bonded our group even more. Just another magical New Zealand moment!
"Love your blog. I stop by for the photography, I linger for the philosophy."

"A beautiful mind will produce beautiful results. And to say the least, yours is a beautiful mind! Thank you for your wisdom and your inner "speak," as they both produce true art from the heart …"

"Thank you Karen. A wonderful story but only the tip of the iceberg, the bigger part below the water is all the thousands of photographers you have inspired to chart their own journey, I know as I am one of them."
"Karen, thank you for the wonderful two day post. Your insights are truly thought provoking. I have never been a teacher, nor will I ever be, but to see someone see the light is a wonderful moment. Thanks again."
"As usual, another terrific story. I’m glad I found you but I have to be honest. I didn’t find you on Google + but did on Scott Kelby’s “The Grid”. Thanks for the inspiration in both images and by the pen/keyboard."
"Gads-what a girl! Thanks for the story, it is beautiful."
"Awesome story Karen — I loved reading about your life transformed. Of course I loved the photography theme and the geek in me is forever curious about the power of tech and the power of social platforms. But … for me it is the arc of lives transformed that inspires. Thank you so much for sharing. See you on G+ and in the Arcanum!"
