Capitol Connection

Is this the Stargate that transports people to different eras and different times? It may be when it’s not decorating the National Plaza in The Capitol – Washington, DC. Across from the Lincoln Monument and the reflecting pool, it sits innocently in plain...

The National Cathedral

Our honeymoon was winding down; our last major stop would be Washington, DC to see the city and pick a few cool places to visit. The night before we arrived I plotted our path into the city to maximize our coverage in a short period. Our first stop would be the small...

Are Caverns Real?

If I landed on another planet, I couldn’t have been more astounded by my first exposure to the incredible Luray Caverns. Welcome to Earth These caverns are supposedly more than 4 million years old and this one, in particular, was discovered in 1878 by accident....

Cars, Cars, Cars!

Traveling by motorhome, day 18 of our honeymoon, we loved our nomadic experience as we made our way, place to place, one amazing stop at a time. After Memphis, TN we decided that we didn’t have enough time to make it to Las Vegas, so we decided to slowly start...

It’s Only Rock and Roll and I Like It!

When the Rolling Stones sang those words, millions of people sang along. Our collective love of the best music ever produced, capturing the spirit and the values of an entire generation and birthed The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, opening in 1995 on the shore of Lake...

The Memphis Shuffle

Arriving late on a Thursday evening, we drove our motorhome to a small RV park just outside Memphis. Actually, it was just over the line in Arkansas. It was like many RV parks in the area, clean, easy to get in and out of, yet not much in the way of family...

Fun at Niagara Falls

In September, I was married to my sweetheart Carol, after 4 years of being together. We had a very wonderful wedding and it was filled with laughter, family, and friends. A week later, we packed up our motorhome and headed North to visit Niagara Falls. What better...

A 24 Hour Holiday at Joshua Tree National Park

The Big Joshua Tree Visit After three grueling days standing at a six-foot table inside a hotel lobby, I was ready to be done with that part of the week and take some time with my friend Lisa Speakman, a fellow member of The Arcanum, who was about to pick me up at my...

Magical Ljubljana

My visit to Slovenia, Coming to an End And I plan to spend the next few days in Ljubljana, the Capitol of this great country. While most people are interested in the architecture, the food, and the culture, I prefer to find amazing places to photograph. Amazingly,...

Ljubljana Street Art?

Hidden Messages in Plain Sight After 9 days of wandering through Ljubljana, I felt as if I were missing something the city was trying to say to me. I wanted to see the side of the city that probably wasn’t meant for tourists. Yes, there’s graffiti around...

Slovenia’s Tuscany

If Piran is a lot like Venice, then Eastern Slovenia is a lot like Tuscany. Imagine if you can, the feeling of walking down “The Wine Roads” through valleys and vineyards, touching family farms that have been there for over a two thousand years.  The...

The Ever Changing.

Exploring Slovenia From place to place, from time to time, the world changes around us. The world changes within us as well and as we look outward, we can connect with what we see inside. Today was the last day at Lake Bled and she left us with something to remember...

Italian Envy, Slovenia Joy

A Day in the Country. Today, driving from Lake Bled to our next location provided ample opportunity to stop along the way. I never know in advance where we will stop, today was no different, but each place was a delightful reprise from a long drive. Constantly we are...

Elusive

While most people would consider rain uncomfortable, photographers know it’s actually exceptional for setting up conditions for incredible opportunities that come after the clearing starts. So it goes… Rain, clearing, amazing conditions, more rain, more...

Enter Slovenia

Interesting that so few people have heard of this country; bordering Italy, Austria and Croatia, Slovenia is very much a part of Europe without a lot of the attention from tourists flocking to Rome or Paris find on their bucket list. But like all of Europe, it’s...

The Beauty of Stuff

I admire beauty is everything; the mountains, valleys, rivers, tufas, trees… the list is endless. This past night I added one more thing to my list of admirations. Stuff. Not abandoned stuff, but real, useful industrial stuff. I really didn’t see the...

The Elves of Iceland

They don’t always like being called Elves, some of them consider themselves Fairies. The Elves do not like to be compared to Santa’s Elves; because they are nothing like those little guys. They have been here in Iceland for many centuries, arriving long...

It’s Not About Me.

It’s Not About Me, I Know That The world doesn’t know I exist, nature doesn’t care if I am cold. No, Nature is being nature and weather is too. It reminds me of the fragility of the physical being. How much damage can happen from just Mother Nature...

A Day at the Beach

Everyone Loves the Beach! What’s not to love? The sand, the ocean, the sky, the… gale force winds, the 3-degree wind factor. Really. How can you go wrong visiting Iceland in the winter? Darn, I forgot my bathing suit. Seriously though, I really would...

Iceland in Winter

The Dismal City Every time I go to Iceland in the Winter, we start off in Reykjavik, the largest city in the country. It’s always dreary here, yet there’s a cosmopolitan atmosphere and an amazing array of gourmet restaurants. Yet even with the dollar as...

They Only Come Out at Night

They say that nothing is as it appears. While I never knew who “they” were, I can attest to the validity of that statement. Take this place, for example. One old and dilapidated train car discarded at the end of an abandoned road, in a town that...
