Photography is a passion for me. It allows me to change my perspective, see the beauty in the everyday, “focus” on the moment at hand. It provides a sense of purpose to my other great love, travel to distant lands and cultures, as well as more local jaunts just roaming around my “back yard” of New England.
The photographs featured on this site span every ecosystem: tropical islands, deserts, plains, glaciers, volcanic mountains and coastlines. This gallery displays travel photos from locales that span from Alaska to Belize and Iceland to Malta and lots of regions in between! While I can’t resist shooting the grand panoramas I come across, it is often hard to do those justice . . . the shots that bring me the greatest pleasure are capturing the small details that somehow speak to me about a culture, as well recording the essence of the diverse and always amazing people I meet.
I am continually adding new images from my travels, and each month features a new collection of fresh photos from the inspiring landscapes and cultures I visit around the world. I hope you enjoy an armchair tour — and are inspired to check out some of these sights up close and in person!
Visit this month’s featured gallery of New Orleans. A zesty gumbo of cultures and cuisine, music also cooks in N’Awlins, with its annual Jazz Fest serving up Dixieland, Gospel, Cajun, Blues and a smorgasboard of other genres!
