This is my kind of place. A quaint little lodge in the jungle, without a TV for 50 miles. Years ago, I gave up TV completely. I didn’t become as productive as I thought I would. I just ended up hanging out at coffee shops a lot more. Now I have a TV, largely because of the Tour de France, Downton Abbey and House Hunters International…but I still try to limit my TV time. Do you have any favorite shows?
Having never stayed in the jungle, let alone a treehouse in the jungle, I surely wasn’t expecting this. But when it comes to treehouses, the Belize Treehouse offers some quality ones. They are well off the valley floor and nestled high in the jungle canopy. At night you can hear the howler monkeys call to one another as they migrate overhead to the river below. It truly is a magical experience.
I’m always on the lookout for cool creative tools that are both inexpensive and easy to use. Recently I purchased Trey Ratcliff’s Lightroom Presets (you can get them by clicking here) and have used them for the last week or so. After experimenting with them I thought it was time to share my thoughts. In short, they easily meet my value equation…they are both easy to use and inexpensive. Only $17.97 when using this link. You can find them under ‘Tools’. Here are a few other reasons I dig them…
- Customizable – They aren’t set in stone. You can easily tweak them to your liking.
- Organized – You get 3 unique packs of presets that are clearly organized.
- Inspirational – It is always fun to try another artist’s tools. With these preset you get a quick peek inside the artistic side of Trey’s brain. Hopefully they will inspire you to make something beautiful.
Here’s a quick before photo for you…if you were wondering where this photo is from, it’s the pool at the Coral Princess Hotel in Cozumel, MX. Feel free to check out my ‘Photographer’s Guide To Cozumel‘ for more info.
I hope you have enjoyed this week’s adventure to Frank Lloyd Wright’s legendary Fallingwater house. It is an incredible place to visit. Beyond the home itself, the grounds are lush and beautiful. In the final installment I thought I would show you around the grounds a bit.
I can’t tell you what this is and I defiantly can’t tell you where it is. Well, I guess I could but I just wouldn’t feel right about it. This is a secret spot that a grounds keeper shared with me. I’ll will say very few people know about it and it is very far from the home.
If you do make it to Fallingwater, which I hope you do, make sure you add Kentuck Knob to your itinerary. It is only a short drive, across some beautiful countryside, from Fallingwater. It’s also surrounded by beautiful gardens and sculptures. Well worth the trip!

Howdy! I hope everyone had a great weekend. As I mentioned last week, we’ll spending the week at Frank’s House. Yep…this is his house. This is Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic Fallingwaters and we’ll be spending the week exploring it.
