Adventures on the road

High volume cities bustle with life and have their own rules of order. The complexity, capacity and multiplicity make these Chinese cities beautiful. The bikes and motorcycles surge like the tide on certain streets. Buildings are built in groups, sometimes dozens of the same against dozens of another. I could...

A day's jaunt outside Beijing lies the little town of Huanghuacheng. It was the base camp for our pick of many tours to hike up and onto the must visit Great Wall of China. We had three days in Beijing and so had to steal time away from our city biking to go see this wonder. We arrived after a colorful and da...

Often I wander in the middle of the night to photograph and have done so in many cities. Beijing is a major metropolis that dwarfs New York City, yet, I felt comfortable roaming alone. Beijing is connected by a very efficient subway system. It is generally clean and with little graffiti to be found. It was a...

Mexico, and particularly the town of San Miguel de Allende, have long been sort of a home destination for me. I have family that live there and have owned my own home there as well. In the series The Color of San Miguel, the whimsy of the country's people has always stricken and inspired  me. Here I see many...

I love shooting on the road and love coming across structures of character. I have been building a collection over the years of the best of them. For this, the Southwest is a great place to roam. I came across this Mega Bingo Parlor in San Antonio and loved the starkness and the empty, off hour, feel. I saw i...

When I'm traveling and photographing architecture that has been photographed a lot, I like cover the wide shots and then focus on the details. Selective graphic details can sometimes be more interesting as the overall scenes have been seen so often. Here is a saunter in Sydney I had near the Opera House. It w...

When the temperature rises, people flock to Malibu for a break from the heat and the crowds of the city.  Malibu to many means the pier, but for me it is the canyon roads and the hidden beaches. The people of means choose to be here for a reason. Topanga Canyon State Park is close to town and the overlook on...

The Santa Monica pier is a favorite spot of mine that I have spent much time on, in and underneath. Whether tourists or locals, people love it here. They come for the beaches and restaurants in the downtown area. Now, Angelenos can ride the train right here too! There are many, but these are a few of my favor...

Summer is a great time to explore downtown Los Angeles. It's a balmy city with a great mix of old and new. I like to park and wander the streets looking and watching all the goings on. This expedition was a hot and sweaty affair. The hustle and bustle of the city offers many opportunities visually. Taxis Wait...

Wandering off an editorial assignment in Saskatchewan, Canada. My assistant and I decided to just drive and see what could find. This random trolling for images is my favorite pastime when I get the chance. We had a good catch. We rolled into Prince Albert and the town was immaculate. After a bite at the loca...
