Akasha


I met Akasha in the Sage Bakehouse in Santa Fe, NM. When she walked in with her notebooks, I waited 'til she was settled before I approached her for a photo. Originally from Massachusetts, she has lived here for 13 years with her 9-year-old son, Rowan, whose portrait she proudly showed me: a handsome young man posing with their parrot. They live with birds, fish, and a cat. Akasha stays busy as an instructor of yoga and her own landscape design business. I hope to run into her again, and if I continue to roam the city early in the morning for photo ops, I just might see her here or perhaps somewhere else.

  1. Unusual name...pretty lady. You are so brave to approach strangers and ask for a photo. I guess I am afraid of being rejected.

    1. Janey, most people adore having their photo taken and are not reluctant about including personal information when I assure them that I will be respectful. A few times older people from other cultures have declined but very seldom.

  6. Very fine-looking woman and must have a good heart what with all those critters in her home and also allowing you to go snap-snap with your camera.
