Lately, it seems that I can't get enough of the American West. I just posted about my friends' road trip through Southern Utah. And I still have more to write about my trip to Northern California. But now I want to share you with some photos taken by NYC-based interior designer Malena Georgieva on her recent trip to Sedona. You may remember Malena's unique take on Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia (if not, click here). She likes to focus on different textures to present familiar sights a new way.
A talented photographer, Malena says she faced a real challenge capturing this part of Arizona. "Sedona was very pretty but it is totally overphotographed so I took a lot of pics of the details and not overall." She says she was also impressed by the architecture there. "Building homes that blend in with nature is a big issue in Sedona. I shot a lot of the houses because I was totally amazed by the unique ways they did it."
