At the end of our fall trip we briefly stopped in Borrego Springs where we cleaned and winterized our trailer before flying home. Turns out in the campsite next to us was Ron and Jacqui Foreman. Ron and Jacqui were also from Alaska (Juneau), and were helping to manage the campground while Jacqui, who was a singer / songwriter performed on evenings and weekends at nearby venues such as the wineries in Temecula. As Alaskans working hard to pursue a dream with an emphasis on lifestyle over financial security – we had a lot in common.
It was good to see them again when we returned to Borrego Springs this winter and to hear about their pursuits. But it wasn’t until just a couple of weeks ago that Janine and I actually heard Jacqui perform that we really became huge fans – in short, we were blown away! She is a wonderful guitar player, with an amazing voice and a great collection of original songs. We have heard her perform a couple of times now and can’t get enough. I believe one day she will be very successful.
I offered to do some photography for Jacqui in exchange for permission to play her music during future slide shows – that is if I ever put some together. 🙂 Turns out she needed photos, so yesterday we spent a few hours photographing Jacqui. I gotta admit this was a little outside my normal photography, but I really had fun. I captured a very wide variety of images, I’m only posting a small sample here. Go past the jump for two more photos.
