On Sunday, we woke up very early and made our way to the Chinati Foundation in hopes of experiencing a few of the exhibits during sunrise.

Walking up to the space, the quietness of the morning was quite eerie as if  sound had been wiped out just in this part of the world. I’ve seen plenty of beautiful pictures of the space before, but experiencing the lights in person is really amazing. As I walked up the stairs to meet my friend, I couldn’t help but exclaim that […]
