Before I visit a new location I do some research to find out what I want to shoot, but I also like to wander around and see what I can find by exploring. This is an image I found while I was wondering around central Vienna. I like the lines of the road the draw your eye into the image and the illuminated buildings look nice against the beautiful dawn 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 am a big fan of aspen trees. This is an aspen grove I found near Crested Butte, CO. I like the graphic composition focusing on the trunks with just a little autumn color.

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.

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!

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.

This is Puerta del Sol the main square in central Madrid. When I am traveling I like to find interesting elevated positions to shoot from. Initially when I asked my hotel about locations with a view of this square, they did not know of any. But after further investigation, they found a massage parlor with this view. Let me be clear that there was no hanky panky. This was a place that provides only massages. So I booked a massage for late in the day and I was able to make this image from the balcony of their office. It was very relaxing to have a deep body massage at the end of a long trip and I got access to great view of the city.

This is the town of Amalfi on the Amalfi coast of Italy. During the middle ages Amalfi was an independent kingdom and had lucrative trading ties throughout the Mediterranean Sea. The town is located in a steep ravine on this gorgeous section of the coast just south of Naples. It was such a beautiful sight to see!

Shooting close up and shooting reflections are 2 great ways to make abstract images and this photo combines both techniques. I found this shot at the Sanibel Marina in Sanibel, FL. I like the graphic lines and simple composition of this image.

This is Chain Bridge which spans the Danube River in central Budapest. I shot this image early in the morning when there was no traffic on the bridge. I just love the 2 lions at the entrance which of course are a symbol of the royal family and are appropriate since the royal palace is on top of the hill directly behind this bridge.

This is an image from my a trip to Quebec several years ago. The building on the left is Chateau Frontenac perhaps Quebec City's most iconic structure which dominates the city skyline. This hotel run by the Fairmont group was originally built by the Canadian Pacific Railway in various stages during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Dufferin Terrace, directly in front of the hotel offers expansive views of the old port and the St. Lawrence River below. It was such a beautiful sight in the early morning light!

Before I visit a new location I do some research to find out what I want to shoot, but I also like to wander around and see what I can find by exploring. This is an image I found while I was wondering around central Vienna. I like the lines of the road the draw your eye into the image and the illuminated buildings look nice against the beautiful dawn sky.

When we visited New Zealand several years ago we drove up to Cape Reinga which is the farthest north you can drive on the North Island of New Zealand. The parking lot was crowded and there were loads of people at the lighthouse so we decided to walk down to Te Warahi Beach. It was only about a 30 minute walk, but we had the beach completely to ourselves. And what a beautiful beach it was, not even one foot print. You just can't top New Zealand's gorgeous landscapes and with so few people everything is just pristine.

When I am traveling I like to get up early and shoot famous landmarks. I like to shoot illuminated monuments with the dawn light and without any crowds. This is Palicio National in Mexico City. It was originally the main government building during colonial times and before that the site of the palace for Aztec rulers. During the day this square would be very, very crowded, but early in the AM there was no one out and about.

One of the best ways to show motion in a still photograph is motion blur. The above photo is a commuter train at Tokyo Station which had just started to leave. I always use a sturdy tripod for these shots with a rather long shutter speed. In this shot my shutter speed was 1/5 of a second. If I did not use a tripod the whole shot would be blurry, but using a tripod only the moving train is blurred. I like the contrast of the sharp station versus the blurry moving train. Shortly after I took this shot, one of the employees of the station rushed up to tell me that I was not allowed to use a tripod in the station. That can be one of the most frustrating things when I am shooting in Japan.

It is a bit gray here in the Pacific Northwest so here is an image which could brighten up your day. Springtime is one of my favorite times to photograph because the greens & are so green and the flowers are blooming. This is a scene I found wondering around the countryside of the Czech Republic. I like the color combination of yellow, green and blue and the road leads your eye to the single tree on the horizon. It was a beautiful time to be out and about!

It is a bit gray here in the Pacific Northwest so here is an image which could brighten up your day. Springtime is one of my favorite times to photograph because the greens & are so green and the flowers are blooming. This is a scene I found wondering around the countryside of the Czech Republic. I like the color combination of yellow, green and blue and the road leads your eye to the single tree on the horizon. It was a beautiful time to be out and about!

When I travel to a new location I like to find a high vantage point where I can see the area. I was in San Miguel de Allende several years ago and our group found a restaurant with this great view of the city. We had a nice dinner and when the light was just right I was able to make this image. I just love the old colonial buildings in San Miguel!

This is the main square in Piran, Slovenia. Piran is a beautiful town on the Adriatic coast of Slovenia and was part of the Venetian Republic for many centuries so it feels very Italian. Recently there are not so many people who speak Italian any more because many of them moved to Italy after WWII when this area became part of the former Yugoslavia. The bell tower in the background is a replica of the famous bell tower in Venice. I like the lines of the square in this image with the beautiful sunrise sky in the background.

Kamakura has many Buddhist temples, many of which are not very famous. This is a Buddha I found at Tokeiji Temple which I found while I was wondering around. I like this calm peaceful face in such a natural setting.

This is the Milan Cathedral or Duomo in Italian which is located on Piaazza del Duomo and is Milan's most famous landmark. Construction on the cathedral was started in the 14th century, but it was not completed until more than 500 years later in the 19th century. The Milanese set out to build an imposing structure at the heart of their city and it is one of the most impressive buildings I have seen anywhere. Milan's Duomo is the largest cathedral in Italy and the 5th largest in the world. (St. Peter's in Rome is larger, but it is a basilica, not a cathedral.) I took this image before dawn so I could capture the square without any people. In this image, I like the designs in the piazza which draw your eye to the cathedral and the beautiful dawn sky in the background.

I am a big fan of aspen trees. This is an aspen grove I found near Crested Butte, CO. I like the graphic composition focusing on the trunks with just a little autumn color.

This is Notre Dame Basilica, the largest Catholic church in Montreal. The exterior of this church was designed by an English architect and is rather nondescript, but the interior designed by French Canadians is truly amazing.I am not very religious, but I do appreciate religious architecture. We took a tour of old Montreal and a stop inside was part of the tour. I was so impressed that I went back the next day early in the morning so I could shoot it without any people.

Often a high elevation provides a great perspective. This image was shot from a high bridge over the freeway. I like this view which includes downtown, the freeways and the football stadium. I used a long shutter speed to create the traffic trails on the freeway.

Whenever I visit Mexico I am amazed at the Mexicans' sense of color. This is an alleyway that leads up to homes built on the slope of a hill in Guanajuato. I think perhaps the climate affects what colors are popular in different places. This is so different from what I am used to seeing in the Pacific Northwest!

This is an old image of Cape Alava on the Olympic Peninsula in WA state. This part of the coastline in very remote as there is no road access. I hiked out from Lake Ozette which takes about 2 hours. It was a beautiful sunset, but when I tried to return after sunset, I could not find the trailhead. So I had to spend a long cold night out on the beach. If I ever do this again I will be more prepared with a flashlight so I can hike back in the dark.

This is an old image taken when we lived in Massachusetts. Cranberries are grown in bogs and the most convenient way to harvest the berries is to flood the fields with water. The berries float to the top and then are vacuumed up into trucks that carry them away. This worker is raking the berries closer to the machine that vacuums them into the truck. I like the bright red berries against the deep blue water and the simple composition of this image.

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