Picture of the Week

A picture a week from around town, or around the world!
Walt Disney Concert Hall

Walt Disney Concert Hall

This week I'm continuing my series on downtown LA with this shot I got at the corner of W 1st and S Hope.  The funky building to the left is the Walt Disney Concert Hall, which I was just totally captivated with.  I love buildings like this with lines going everywhere...

Shifting gears away from Asia and back to the good 'ole United States, I wanted to share some images that I captured while out in California earlier this summer.  This past time when I went to LA, I did something that I've never done before, I stayed downtown. ...

Beijing in Slow Motion

Alright, this week's post is admittedly different.  Allow me to explain.  🙂 As I've been to China over the last several years, I've noticed that I'm feeling a little stuck artistically.  Each year I come back with pictures of the Great Wall - which I love by the way...

Shanghai from behind the Bund

Shanghai from behind the Bund

If last week's post was on one end of a spectrum, this week's is the exact opposite.  From the middle of nowhere... to downtown in one of the largest population centers on the planet.  Ah, Shanghai.  She's pretty isn't she? Shanghai's skyline is one of my...

This week on Picture of the Week I'm starting my series on China from our travels there earlier this summer.  I figured since I've featured animals the last two weeks (our cat Charlie and the non-snow monkeys from Japan) that I'd just carry the theme on through, and...

King Charles

...while I'm on the subject of animals doing funny things (if you missed it, be sure to check out last week's post on monkeys), this seriously cracked me up, so I had to share. Our cat Charlie loves to sleep in the funniest of positions, and sometimes in the funniest...

Monkeys Looking at Things

Monkeys Looking at Things

This week we say farewell to Japan (for now) on Picture of the Week, and I wanted to end with a whimsical post... and what could be a more whimsical subject than monkeys? As I was planning my trip to Japan, one of the things I really wanted to see were the snow...

Odaiba Kaihin-Koen Park at Night

By all relevant metrics (population / GDP / etc), Tokyo is the largest "city" in the world.  I say "city", because Tokyo is technically not actually a city, but rather a metropolis, which is a collection of 23 city-like (meaning they have their own partial...
