We did a lot–and I mean a lot–of traveling planned over 2017 and 2019. We visited Paris & Lyon in November; then it was off to South Africa in January, followed by Australia, New Zealand, Bora Bora, Tahiti, Chile, Ecuador, Columbia, Panama and Peru to name a few spots. Over the summer of 2018 we visited Ireland and then Banff. In the summer of 2019 we visited St Petersburg, Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Helsinki, Germany and Amsterdam. Photos from that trip are posted on the site as well.
In the Spring of 2020 we had planned to go to Italy for a few months where and spend most of our time in Florence and Rome. The COVID19 pandemic put an end to that plan. As soon as we can travel we will be posting photos from whatever trips we go on. Fortunately we were able to go to the Outer Banks and stayed in Duck, North Carolina for a couple of weeks.
Now that we are in 2022 and it looks like COVID-19 is in the rear view mirror, we are on the road again. There are some photos posted from a recent trip to New Mexico. We have also posted photos from a 6 week trip to Spain we are now halfway through. These include photos from Seville, Jerez, Cordoba, Granada and the Alhambra.
While we expect to see a lot of beautiful and exotic stuff on our travels, that is only part of what we are trying to capture in the photos we post. We are also going to try to capture a bit of essence of the places we visit, which means shots of people, cities, towns, and villages that convey a sense of place and hint at the culture.
The photos posted on this blog and website include shots taken in and around the United States and around the world. The U.S. photos include shots taken in cities like New York, Memphis, Nashville, Aspen, Boulder, Steamboat, Bar Harbor, Breton Woods and and Washington, DC. Other shots concentrate on the natural beauty of places like the Rocky Mountains, Alaskan rainforests, the Jersey Shore and Nature preserves like the Edwin B. Forsythe Wildlife Refuge.
We recently moved our headquarters to Virginia, so we’ll be posting photos from the historical sites in and around the area.
Many posted photos were taken outside the U.S. There are photos taken in places like Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Vietnam, China, Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea and Thailand. These photos seek to capture a piece of the local culture as well as the majesty of nature at places like Ha Long Bay in Vietnam or the Canadian Rockies in Banff.
