Beautiful Tibet

One of the most captivating places we’ve visited, Tibet was shocking to our Western senses and extremely beautiful.

Still one of my favorite photos, this barn from “Mormon Row” in Grand Tetons National Park is supposedly one of the most photographed barns in the Country.  I can understand why!

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...

Reflection of Osaka Castle

When I think about Japan, one of the things that stands out in my mind is its architecture, and more specifically, its ancient architecture.  While I was visiting, I wanted to capture something that just said "Japan" to me, and while Mount Fuji is unmistakably...

The Tō-ji Pagoda

Prior to leaving for Japan, I asked my friends who had been there what all I should see, and what I should avoid.  Almost universally, people said 'avoid temple-fatigue' in Kyoto.  As it turns out, there are more temples in the Kyoto area than you'd ever want to...

Okay, okay, this is different! Here's the scoop.  I haven't taken just a ton of pictures this year yet because I'm trying to hone my editing skills.  I *generally* like for the images that I share to be photo realistic, meaning the image looks like what was in front...
