Until quite recently, I hated tours. With a passion. How can that be, you ask? There is so much to learn, and the knowledge of the guides is right there at your disposal. Why not let them open up that world for you, show you what you didn’t even know to explore? Oh, let meContinue reading “Touristy Things”
She knows a good gig when she sees one — this furry ball of gorgeous has actually shown up more than once in my reading of other people’s blogs about journeys to Positano. An absolute camera-mugging, attention-crazed, ultra-self-confident specimen, milking her chance to steal the attention of tourist lenses far and wide. Everyone is Mr.Continue reading “Blessings from Bast (Positano, Italy, September 2018)”
Back to my “something a little different”, inspired by one of my favorite stories, Rashomon. (Does doing it twice officially make it a habit? Okay, okay, not quite there yet.) The idea is to occasionally solicit the thoughts and opinions of others who have tread the same path as me, but (inevitably) they bring aContinue reading “Rashomon Series #2: Positano, Italy (September 2018)”
I’ve done a couple of safe-cations in our current pandemic climate, and hope to do a few more over the next year or so (yes, I’m prepared to safe-cation for as long as it takes). So inevitably, I am going to be out there, wearing my mask and encountering other people wearing their masks. AndContinue reading “My Favorite Mask-Takes”
View from my tea at Cafe Duke, just down the street from my room at the Michelangelo. I ventured out for an early walk and breakfast to celebrate my first morning in New York. It wasn’t my first time in the city, not by a longshot, but this was my first (and so far only)Continue reading “New York, NY Photo Series #2 (March 2018)”
More experiments with black and white. Shot on iPhone 8, black and white filter. First post in this series is here.
More cemetery shooting, exploring light and shadow. Shot on iPhone 8, black and white filter. Series #2 is here. #1 is here.
Growing up, I greatly enjoyed wandering through graveyards and reading all of the tombstones, in particular the crumbling, fading ones (not a vampire, but I could play one on TV). So it was a special thrill to converge my early experiments in photography with this long-standing hobby of mine, in one of the greatest cemeteryContinue reading “NOLA Photo Series #2 (April 2018)”
Adult Disney. It’s a thing. And nowhere is it more of a thing than on the Disney cruise lines. In fact, it’s so much a thing on their cruises that you can even bring all of your kids, and it’s still Adult Disney. For those who are unfamiliar with this concept, contrary to popular beliefContinue reading “Disney Cruise (December 2015)”
