A picture a week from around town, or around the world!

Punakha Dzong in Punakha, Bhutan

Chalk it up to poor planning... or me just not looking at my calendar... in any case, when I started my series on Bhutan last week I wasn't thinking about this week being Easter! So, this is admittedly not an Easter photo / post! BUT, happy Easter anyway! 🙂 When I...

Mount Jomolhari at Sunrise

This week's post is a special one for a number of reasons. First, it's the beginning of my series on Bhutan, which I've been looking forward to sharing for sometime. Second, and perhaps more relevant to the rest of this post, is the fact that I've just turned 40....

Milky Way over Gregory Bald

This week (and next) I wanted to take a short break from travel photography to share a few images I've taken this winter. If you've ever photographed with me, you probably know I'm not a fan of Winter, simply because it snows so rarely here in East Tennessee, and I...

Antelope Canyon in Black and White

This week for Picture of the Week, I wanted to do something a little different (we'll get back to Asia next week). I've always said that I wonder what would happen if I didn't take a picture for an entire year, and instead, just went back and re-edited all my old...

The Boy in the Spiral Staircase

In last week's post I talked about how Holly and I had really enjoyed visiting the various gardens in Singapore and shared a picture of an orchid from the National Orchid Garden. This week's photo is from yet another garden in Singapore, the Chinese Gardens. Holly and...
