It’s Hard Out There For A Sign

We were recently in South America (more pictures soon, probably), and one of the places we visited was Buenos Aires. It was actually the third time I'd been there, so a few of the things we saw were "repeats," if you will. Anyhow, when I got back I was looking back at my pictures and I saw this one of a random parking lot in the San Telmo neighborhood of Buenos Aires: I wondered why I'd felt the need to shoot that particular picture because it's pretty pointless and there's nothing going Read more [...]

The Good Ol’ Days Weren’t Always Good…

In my last post I talked about nostalgia in the form of Billy Joel's song "Keeping The Faith." Coincidentally, Angela recently put this picture up below my computer monitor: God knows where she found it. We do joke that we're incredibly lucky we didn't meet each other when we were 15 years old, though, since neither of us was in any type of prime at that age. In any case, it was taken when I was 15, while on a trip to California. It was at my great aunt and great uncle's house. It's also photographic Read more [...]

A Photography Guest Post I Wrote: “How To Photograph People You Meet While Traveling”

Excerpt: HOW TO PHOTOGRAPH PEOPLE YOU MEET WHILE TRAVELING Imagine this scenario: You’re walking down a side street in Bangkok in the late afternoon, and you pass by an old man sitting on his patio. He’s drinking a cup Read more [...]

September 2012 Pictures of the Day

September? Yes, September. We were traveling a lot (mostly in China during September) so I've been slow at uploading pictures and posting to the blog. But here they are, finally: I'm also currently uploading pictures from October and I'll put them here when they're ready. In the meantime, you can always check out my latest pictures on Flickr. (And you can see some of the newest ones in the widget to the left.)Thanks for reading, and have a great new week! Read more [...]

China Trip Pictures

I'm still planning on writing more about our trip to China, but things are busy now that we're back, and it's going to take some time to reflect (and to actually write about it) before I do that. But in the meantime, I've gone through hundreds of pictures and chosen my favorites from our trip. You can check them out here or in this slideshow: You can see information for any of these pictures by clicking on "Show info" on the upper right while watching the slideshow, or you can just go to flickr and Read more [...]

August 2012 Pictures of the Day

I realize that it’s now almost the end of September, but we were in China for three weeks and I got behind on some things in the meantime. Anyhow, I finally got August’s Pictures of the Day lined up and ready to go. Have a look if you’d like, and check back in a few days for pictures from China, as well as a “trip report.”
