We have a lot–and I mean a lot–of trips planned over the next year. We visited Paris & Lyon in November; Now it’s off to South Africa in January, followed by Australia, New Zealand, Bora Bora, Tahiti, Chile, Columbia, Panama and Peru to name a few spots. In late summer we will be off to Banff for a short time. We will have internet access the whole while, so expect a lot of photos.
While we expect to see a lot of beautiful and exotic stuff, 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 both 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 Boston. 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.
Many of the photos were taken outside the U.S. There are photos taken in places like Australia, 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 natural settings like Ha Long Bay. Just go to the Galleries menu at the top of the page to have a look.
