Last Night In Venice
I stood on the Ponte Rialto, a cool, overcast evening. I watched the gondolas come and go as ambient light faded. A relaxing way to spend my last night in Venice.
Rolling hills in Kriens, Switzerland.
A Girl On The Beach
While scouting locations for a sunrise shoot, a girl wandered down to the water's edge. She was taking what seemed to me an epic number of selfies. A story emerged. A lovely young lady on a beautiful stretch of coast.
Dining Alfresco In Brussels
Living in California, I forget how late the evening light is in parts farther north. In the summers in Northern Europe, sunset isn't until well past 9pm. And then the blue hour holds on past 10pm.
I suppose it's because I was in the heart of Brussels. I could not walk 10 meters without seeing another chocolate shop. And yes ... they're all good.
The Great Wall
The Great Wall is a sight to behold, stretching into the distance, seemingly endless.
The Next Move

I brought this chair with me so I'd have a dry place to sit while I took some long exposures along Coronado Beach. After struggling to find some foreground interest, the chair became the perfect subject.
A Bicycle In Florence
Walk the streets and back alleys of Florence and you will see bicycles. Lots of bicycles. Although I left Florence with many fond memories, I will forever connect the humble bicycle with the charm of Florence.
On a warm spring's day, the Spanish Steps in Rome, Italy are decked out in thousands of flowers.
Fishing At Daybreak
A beautiful morning along the shores of Torrey Pines. Before the daily crowds arrive for sun and surf, the early morning hours bring a different breed of people. Fisherman, joggers & hikers ... and the occasional photographer.
Iconic. Classic. Romantic. Just a few of the words used to describe the Trevi Fountain in Rome.
Carousel in Florence
The squares of Florence transform as the sun crosses the sky and drops over the horizon. By day, bustling street markets teeming with tourists and locals alike. By night, an escape for children and adults alike.
Love Locks In Florence
Locks on bridges, fences, gratings... I saw a lot of locks in Europe. I've since learned they're "love locks" that sweethearts latch in public places to symbolize their love.
Row after row of tiled roofs capping pastel painted building with shuttered windows in Florence, Italy.
Bicycles, bicycles everywhere. I kind of regret not renting a cycle and cruising around Florence.
St. Peter's Square
By day, the square is bustling with worshippers, pilgrims and tourist. Before sunrise, it's very, very quiet.
Synonymous with Venice, and they are everywhere in that watery city. You'll find that classic black frame at almost every mooring.

Please Mr. Postman

Cardiff Lifeguard Tower
I went out on this morning hoping for a break in the clouds and a warm sunset. Instead, I got these inviting blues on blues. The yellow signs providing a nice contrast. Sometimes, bad weather yields good things.
This was an interesting morning. A few wispy clouds, catching the colors of the first rays of dawn. The rest of the sky an inky blue, the stars still visible. And palm trees. Who doesn't like palm trees?
Old Point Loma Lighthouse
Built shortly after California was admitted to the Union, the Old Point Loma Lighthouse stood watch over San Diego for 36 years.
