On our trip to Italy we spent some time in Naples. This is the Toledo Metro Station of the Naples subway. I am a big fan of modern architecture and when I saw a photo of this station I decided I had to go shoot it early in the morning. It was designed by a Spanish architectural firm along the themes of water and light. I like the surreal feeling of this ultra modern architecture.

I love shooting the new green leaves in the springtime. The Japanese call this time of year "The Time of New Greenery". This is a shot of a small waterfall at the Portland Japanese Garden. I used a slow shutter speed to make the falling water look silky. I like the contrast of the motion blurred water against the sharp, green leaves.

Europe is known for its cafe culture, but we were truly impressed when we walked into the Book Cafe in Budapest. The elaborate painted murals and interior decor made us feel like we had entered the room of an historic palace, but in fact we had come for some coffee and delicious pastry. It was one of our fondest memories of Budapest.

There are several lakes at the foot of Mt. Fuji which make a nice foreground for the mountain. Several years ago I visited Lake Tanuki in the late afternoon. This is a view from the edge of the lake where the trees had already lost their leaves. I like the bare tree branches as a counterweight to the mountain in this image and the late evening light was gorgeous!

When we visited Portugal several years ago we spent several nights in Obidos. Obidos was founded during the Roman period and was occupied by the Moors until 1148. After the town was reconquered by the Christians, they built fortifications to protect against any incursions by Moorish war parties. Obidos is is one of very few towns where the entire medieval wall has survived to the present day. We walked a circumference of the entire town on the wall which was a very good way to look down on the historic buildings. This image is a good view of the medieval historic town and its surrounding wall.

When you think of Los Angeles, public transportation is not the first thing that comes to mind. But LA does have a subway and this is the Hollywood / Vine Metro Station. If you look closely you can see empty movie reels cover the ceiling. I like the leading lines that draw your eye into this image.

After our big snowstorm last week I decided to check out this Japanese maple tree at the Arboretum. I named my original image "Dancing Tree" because it looks like the tree is dancing, so I decided to name this one "Dancing in the Snow". It is such a beautiful tree and it looked so fabulous with snow covering most of the branches!

This is St.Antimo Abbey near Montalcino in Tuscany, Italy. It was built in the 12th century and is such a magical place. It is not difficult to imagine medieval pilgrims on their way to Rome here. I like the Romanesque architecture and the shaft of light over the altar in this image.

When I am traveling I like to get up early and wander around. This is an image I took when I was wandering around Rome early one mourning. Ponte Sant'Angelo was used by medieval pilgrims to cross the Tiber River into the Vatican city and is lined with many beautiful statues. It was such a beautiful sight to see in the early morning light!

This is Split, Croatia's second largest city after the capital Zagreb. Split is a major port on the Adriatic coast and the terminal for ferries to many islands. When I visit a new destination, I like to find an elevated viewpoint to photograph and this park on top of a hill was perfect. I like the city surrounding the harbor with the mountains in the background. Croatia is such a beautiful country!

This is another image from our recent snowstorm. I like the design of the branches with snow. I think it almost looks like an abstract painting. Mother Nature is such a wonderful artist!

We don't get much snow in Seattle because we are so close to the ocean, but yesterday we got several inches. Because the snow was a bit wet it stuck to even the smallest branches of every tree. So I went down to the Arboretum to take some photos of this winter wonderland. I was mostly shooting closeup so I could find abstract designs in the shape of the tree branches. I like the composition of this image and the fact that it almost looks black and white even thought there are some hints of color.

This is Lanikai Beach at dawn. Lanikai Beach is next to Kailua where President Obama stays when he visits Hawaii. It is such a beautiful place! No wonder the former president likes to stay here.

When we stayed in Montreal several years ago, I spent some time wondering around Old Montreal, the historical area of the city. This is a fountain I found there with some interesting lighting. Montreal is a great town and I would like to go back some day.

When I am on a photography trip I tend to do a lot of driving and it is not always a chore. This is Icefields Parkway in Jasper National Park and it was one of the most pleasant drives I have experienced anywhere. With snow on the ground and a bright blue sky, it was just beautiful. Since it was the middle of the winter we were practically the only car on the road which made it easy to stand in the middle of the road to take this photo. Wouldn't you like to be driving down this road right now?

Recently a client ordered a 40 X 60 metal print of my Winter Forest Abstract image. I picked it up yesterday and it looks fabulous in such a large format. Printing large really grabs your attention. This image was created in camera by using a long shutter speed and moving the camera up while the shutter was open. It is burned trunks from a forest fire with snow covering the ground. I like the simplicity of this abstract composition.

When I visited California last spring I saw many ice plants blooming along the coast. These are some ice plants found at Point Reyes National Seashore just north of San Francisco. It was such a beautiful sight to see this field of pink flowers next to the ocean shore!

Antigua is a charming colonial town in Guatemala. This is El Arco one of the most famous landmarks in the city. Officially Santa Catalina Arch, it was originally constructed so nuns from the Santa Catalina Convent could go to the school across the street without walking outside. I like the leading lines of this image that draw your eye to the arch.

Traditional Japanese architecture is very good at borrowing landscapes. This is a window I found at a Japanese temple in Kyoto which illustrates this point. The view of the garden outside is almost like a beautiful painting with an elaborate frame. It was very peaceful to sit in this minimalist room looking out to see the beauty of nature.

This is Fletcher Bay on the northern tip of the Coromandel Peninsula on New Zealand's North Island. It was a long drive on unpaved roads to get there, but this view was well worth the long journey. This is the beginning of the Coromandel Coastal Walkway which was a very pleasant and not so strenuous hike with many great views of the ocean. New Zealand is such a beautiful country with so many different areas to explore. I like the single tree in the foreground of this image.

Several years ago I visited Guatemala. One of the highlights of my trip there was Antigua, Guatemala's old capital. One morning I drove up to Hill of the Cross (La Cruz) to photograph the city at dawn. Antigua is surrounded by several active volcanoes. The mountain in the background is Vocan de Agua. These volcanoes caused many earthquakes throughout Antigua's history and eventually the seat of government was moved to Guatemala City to prevent future destruction from earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. I like the lights of the city beneath the silhouette of the volcano in this image.

Barcelona is well known for its modernista architecture and the master of this style is Antonio Gaudi. Gaudi designed Park Guell as an upscale housing development at the beginning of the 20th century, but it was never commercially successful. That was lucky for the general public which can now enjoy this wonderful public park looking out over the city of Barcelona. It has become a very popular destination and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I just love Gaudi's whimsical style and the mosaic tilework on the terrace is amazing.

I am a big fan of Japanese gardens. This is the garden at Chisaku-in Temple in Kyoto. The best temple gardens in Japan are almost an extension of the architecture and an integral part of the building itself. I love the way this room and the garden were designed to be a window looking out on a beautiful landscape. It is so peaceful!

I sold a print of my Shinto Priest image last weekend. I shot this at a Japanese festival at Meiji Shrine in Tokyo. When I shoot festivals I like to so close up shots of the costumes. I think an image of only part of a person is very thought provoking. In this image, I like the spirituality one can see in just the hands and the robe. I also like the monotone feeling of this image which lets your eye focus on the composition.

Most people do not think of wilderness when they think about Japan, but there are some areas untouched by the hand of man. This is a small waterfall I found on the island of Yakushima which is in southern Japan between Kyushu and Okinawa. Most of the island is a nature preserve which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I set up my tripod at a very low height for this shot to emphasize the large rock in the foreground of the image.

I like to find abstract images in unusual places. This image is a shot of out of focus Christmas lights. Photographers call this effect bokeh which comes from the Japanese word "bokeru". I used a medium telephoto lens (200mm) completely out of focus for this shot. At their best abstract photos become a study of color and shapes which is true of this image.

Europe is known for its cafe culture, but we were truly impressed when we walked into the Book Cafe in Budapest. The elaborate painted murals and interior decor made us feel like we had entered the room of an historic palace, but in fact we had come for some coffee and delicious pastry. It was one of our fondest memories of Budapest.

Last October we visited Michigan's Upper Peninsula to see the autumn color. Unfortunately we were a bit too early to see the changing leaves, but we did take several nice hikes. One day we walked along the Presque Isle River in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. This is one of the waterfalls we saw on that hike. There had been quite a bit of rain so the water level of the river was higher than normal. I like this view of the waterfall looking through a window of trees.

This is Notre Dame Basilica on Place d'Armes square in Old Montreal, the historical district of the city. It was designed by an Irish-American Anglican and looks Anglo, but is one of the largest catholic churches in Canada. I got up early to shoot the illuminated church with the dawn sky in the background. It was such a beautiful sight to see!

This is the town square of Hvar, Croatia. Hvar is the largest town on the island of Hvar which is on the Dalmatian coast of Croatia. This island and most of the Adriatic coast of Croatia was part of the Venetian Republic for many centuries and has a very Italian atmosphere. Venice had the largest naval fleet for many centuries and the building on the right is where Venetian naval vessels were built and repaired. I got up early so I could capture it with this beautiful dawn sky and no people. During the day this square is very crowded.

This is Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, the largest railroad station in the western US. It was completed in 1939 in Art Deco style. I can just imagine Greta Garbo or some other glamorous movie star walking down this pathway to the station entrance. The palm trees in this park really give it that LA look. It was a beautiful sight to see in the early morning light!

We are in the middle of winter and there is some snow on the ground, but spring is not so far away. This is an image I shot on a trip to Croatia in the springtime. Plitvice Lakes is such a beautiful place during the spring. All the lakes are connected by a huge number of streams with cascades both large and small. These are some small cascades on a stream in the forest. I like the sense of movement in this image. I used a slow shutter speed to make the water look silky.

When I was in Sicily, I spent one night in Ragusa. Ragusa along with Syracuse and Noto are known as the Baroque Triangle because of the abundance of baroque style buildings. In the late 17th century there was a large earthquake in southern Sicily. After the earthquake, most of the buildings had to be rebuilt and because baroque architecture was in vogue at this time all of the buildings were built in what is now known as Sicilian baroque style. Ragusa offers some beautiful vistas because it is built on several hills. I found this viewpoint and then went back the next morning to shoot the sun rising behind the city. It was such a beautiful sight to see!

While I was in Sicily, I made a brief trip to Malta via the ferry. I had lunch in the small fishing village of Marsaxlokk and I fell in love with the design of the traditional fishing boats. So I went back early the next morning to shoot the reflections in the early morning light. All of these boats have eyes painted on their bows to protect against storms and calamities at sea. I like the colorful, abstract composition of this image.

While I was in Sicily, I spent some time in Syracuse. In the 5th century BC Syracuse was the largest Greek city in the ancient world with a population larger than Athens. It was the home and birthplace of the famous mathematician Archimedes which is why this square is named Piazza Archimede. I like the movement of the water and the horse stature against this beautiful twilight sky.

When we were in Palermo we joined a tour of the opera house, Teatro Massimo. Since Palermo is the largest city in Sicily and was its capital in the past, it has the most impressive opera house on the island. Often looking up can give a different perspective. This is a view looking directly up at the ceiling. They just do not make buildings like this anymore!

After Naples we flew to Palermo in Sicily. Palermo was the capital of the Norman kingdom of Sicily. This is a mosaic mural of Christ Pantocrator in the Palantine Chapel which was the royal chapel of the Norman kings of Sicily It was built in the 12th century. The Normans defeated the Arabs who ruled Sicily for over 200 years until 1061. Since Sicily was a crossroads of mariners in the medieval Mediterranean Sea, its culture is a mixture of Roman, Byzantine and Arab which is known as the Arab Norman style. The mosaic murals are truly amazing and were the highlight of our trip to Palermo.

When we were in Naples we took a tour of the opera house. Naples was the birthplace of opera and Teatro di San Carlo is the oldest continuously active public opera house in the world. It was originally commissioned by King Charles and was completed in 1737. As you can see the royal box is very impressive and such a beautiful building!

On our trip to Italy we spent some time in Naples. This is the Toledo Metro Station of the Naples subway. I am a big fan of modern architecture and when I saw a photo of this station I decided I had to go shoot it early in the morning. It was designed by a Spanish architectural firm along the themes of water and light. I like the surreal feeling of this ultra modern architecture.

In May we visited Italy starting in Rome. One morning I got up early to shoot Trevi Fountain during the blue hour. I love shooting at this time of day because there are so few people wondering around and everything is very quiet and beautiful. I like this very impressive monument with the twilight sky in the background.

In the spring I traveled up the coast of northern California. One night I stopped in Fort Bragg and visited Glass Beach. The city of Fort Bragg had a trash dumping sight next to the ocean and over the years many glass bottles and other objects were washed into the ocean. After many years these fragments of glass were eroded into smooth glass pebbles. The white and brown pebbles in this image are actually small pieces of glass that were eroded by the surf. I like the abstract design of real pebbles and glass pebbles in this image.

I took a road trip down to California in April. My first stop was San Francisco so I decided to shoot the city skyline at twilight. This shot was taken from Yerba Buena Island which is conveniently located between Oakland and San Francisco and can be accessed from the San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge. I like the illuminated bridge and buildings against this beautiful twilight sky.

I love shooting the new green leaves in the springtime. The Japanese call this time of year "The Time of New Greenery". This is a shot of a small waterfall at the Portland Japanese Garden. I used a slow shutter speed to make the falling water look silky. I like the contrast of the motion blurred water against the sharp, green leaves.

I love to make abstract images using various techniques. Shooting close up and photographing reflections are 2 great ways to make abstract images and this shot combines both techniques. I like the graphical composition of this image.

We visited Florida in February. Our trip was planned primarily to see my relatives, but I was able to find some time to take a few photos. This first image is looking out to the ocean from a private dock on Captiva Island. Docks are a fascinating subject because they are literally a bridge between two different worlds, dry land and open water. It was a bit cloudy on this day which made the dawn light very blue. I like the moodiness of this image.

There are several good reasons why Washington state's nickname is the "Evergreen State". Of course the vast majority of our trees are conifers which are evergreen. But in my mind more importantly, the high amount of precipitation in our state means that most areas are very green all year round. This image was taken in the Olympic National Park which has one of the highest annual rainfall of any area in the country. This area is just so green!

This is the traditional section of Kanazawa, a beautiful town on the Sea of Japan in northern Honshu. This area is where the samurai warrior class lived. I used a long shutter speed with my camera on a sturdy tripod to create this effect. I like the couple in traditional kimonos with motion blur as they are walking down the street.

When we are traveling and stay at a nice hotel, I like to take photos of the architecture. This is a boutique hotel we stayed at in Portugal's Douro Valley. This area is know for its wine and the hotel was located at a local winery. This is one of the rooms available for guests to use. Isn't this a wonderful space to sit down, relax and read a book?

This is the Governor's Palace in Guadalajara, MEX. This beautiful old colonial building was built in the Spanish colonial style with an open courtyard. Since it is located next to the cathedral, it is possible to see the spires and dome of this beautiful church through the arches of this arcade.
