The antiquity of Venice was and interesting stop on our way to Cortina d’Ampezzo. The hour and a half drive from Venice to Auronzo di Cadore increased in beauty as we climbed in elevation; a photographer’s reoccurring, deja vu, I was seeing places I wish I had the time to stop at.

I grew up twelve miles from the southern terminus of what can be construed as the Big Sur Coast. My grandmother used to paint seascapes here, and I’m reasonably sure my mother emptied Lime Kiln Creek of landscape rock.

Autumn brings incredible changes to the alpine terrain in the San Juan Mountains of Southwest Colorado. Fall foliage glistens with golden leaves of the cottonwood and aspens, as well of the reds of the oaks

Researching Zermatt, logistics for a town without cars presented challenges for this auto dependent photographer. A mountain with a reputation of rarely appearing from above its cool blanket of clouds presented other problems.

Procida a heavenly little piece of rock in the Tyrrhenian Sea decorated with ancient buildings that would make a great Crayola Crayon advertisement.

Everything there is to say about Venice has already been said; well maybe I can dig deep for something to contribute, as all that has been said, hasn’t been said by me.

Teeland’s General Store, Wasilla Alaska (1976?); the way it was.

I got hired to speak about photography in Yokosuka Japan, and whenever one of these speaking engagements happens in foreign place I like to spend a little extra time there to throw a new twist into my portfolio.
