Castelló D’empuries

“Don’t you dare ignore me!” my alarm would scream at me if it could talk. My alarm started quietly this morning and progressively got louder. As much as I wanted to, I couldn’t ignore it, I had to get up early to go photograph an average town. Just like with people, there are places in […]

“The ice was here, the ice was there. The ice was all around. It cracked and groaned and roared and howled like noises in a swound.” — The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Coleridge One of the main reasons I wanted to take this expedition cruise to Eastern Antarctica and the Ross Sea was […]

Antarctica Love

I was on the bridge, warming up from being out on the deck. I stared at the detail of the cliffs of Coulman Island, marveling at their size and the snow pack seemingly teetering on top of them. That’s when I saw it…love. Amidst the dark stone cliff there was a lighter caramel colored stone, […]

It’s heereeee…’s that time of year where I go dark into the depths of the afterlife, to wander in cemeteries around the world. I really don’t know what possesses me, but I’m drawn to cemeteries as I travel. And no, this isn’t some weird Goth thing, nor am I the type of person who likes […]

New England seaside town nantucket

New England seaside towns and the East Coast is the area where it all started – the colonies that were to become America. All last week I experienced the New England seaside and boating culture – from yachts to sailboats, to fishing vessels, small ships, and giant mansions. I grew up in the Midwest so […]

Eastern State Penitentiary Philadelphia

“The building is designed to strike fear into your heart by giving you a completely solitary, isolated experience,” Steve Buscemi whispered in my ear. Then I heard a creaky, heavy, cell door being pulled shut with a metal on metal bang that made me jump. I had just entered solitary confinement in prison. I was […]

Sit still under a tree branch and just listen. Listen. You’ll hear rustling, every so slightly. Your hair blows across your face and tickles your cheeks. You look up into the branches and see a leaf come tumbling down towards you like a feather. Trees are magical. Sitting under trees and listening to the leaves […]

Dalton Highway Travel

Every time I looked to my right it was there. It looked like a giant snake winding through the beautiful landscape, as if I were in a sci-fi film. It was strange to have the it constantly in your sight – like a monkey on your back. Always there, always reminding you that it is […]

Alaska Railroad travel

Everyone crowded into the train station like sardines. “Alllllllll aboarrrd!” The conductor shouts. It rings through my head taking me back for a second to Model Ts chugging around, horse carriages pulling up to the station in a flurry of dust and activity while men in trousers, loose shirts, and hats lift trunks off of […]
