Weekend in San Diego

Just spent a weekend in San Diego. Here are a few images.

Afternoon in Naples

Naples is not for everyone. If the Italian cities were a family, Milan would be the aloof business woman. Florence, the elegant aunt; Rome the smart Mamma. And Naples would be the aunt who comes to Christmas dinner in hot pants and an old sweater and asks Aunt Florence’s boyfriend if he’d like a quick tumble. The place has some great assets, a world-class archeological…

Location Threads: Naples & Herculaneum

I’ve just finished posting my new photo album, final shots from our recent trip to Italy. If you missed my earlier posts, here are the photos from the Greek cruise and Venice. The new images cover: Naples and Herculaneum — a final cruise day Rome Siena Florence Here, I’m adding a few shot sequences from that set for the blog. The idea being that for a picture to…

Photos of Greece

I finally posted the pictures taken on our Greek cruise to my photo site here. The photos are in order taken: Katakolon, where the ancient Olympics were held Nafplion, jumping off point for the ancient Greek sites of Epidaurus and Mycanea Athens and the Acropolis Kusadasi Turkey featuring the ancient Roman town of  Ephesus Rhodes, featuring best preserved Medieval towns in Greece Santorini Mykonos Ancient…

Turning back onto the Self, I create…

Just got another book review, this one in the Moab, Utah paper. The review is a good one, I continue to be lucky in that.

It has an impact that radiates into the future and touches others…

Here’s the latest review: The link to the story is: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865633203/Book-review-Photographing-the-American-Southwest-shares-how-to-photograph-Utahs-iconic-sites.html

Venice: Photographing Key Landmarks So Tourists Aren’t A Factor

I talk to lots of folks that visited Venice and don’t think it was worth it. And the reason is mostly due to the fact that the city is awash with tourists. No question. General tourists, cruise boat passengers, lots of bodies. Go to St. Mark’s Square between 10 am and 7 pm and it’s like Grand Central Station. Add in the guys trying to sell you selfie…

Now that I’m Home

Here we are, the end of July. Summer days here in SoCal still going till 8 PM with temperatures in the low 80s. And I’m starting to plant myself more deeply into the work now that I’m back from a month and a half of travel. By now, most friends have heard the elevator speech I give when they ask, What did you do in…
