China from my phone cam

    Since 1999 I’ve made 30+ visits to China, and more than I can count to Hong Kong and Macau. All business related. With the exception of down time over some weekends and evenings, I’ve never had much time to devote to just wandering around and really spending some quality time taking pictures on my own. That is […]

The Truth is Out There…

Shot these last Friday evening on US-67 just west of Marfa, and in particular just west of the the ”Marfa Mystery Lights Viewing Area.”  We originally had plans to attend the Star Party at the McDonald Observatory that evening. That didn’t work out as the weather was not cooperating. So we bailed on those plans and were heading back towards […]

An inspiring and challenging week in the Big Bend

Dan Klepper. James wasn’t […]

BACKSTORY: Ballyquin Beach

I developed a love of photographing beaches and coastlines while living in Ireland. Since it is an island nation, it features nearly 2000 miles (3200km) of varied and mostly spectacular coastline.  The waters are pure in most spots, the beaches unspoiled, and you never feel like there is a crowd. There were several times we’d head to a favorite beach and would […]

BACKSTORY: Cortona Sun

Cortona is a small wine-producing town in the province of Arezzo, in Tuscany, Italy. While living in Ireland for 5 years we had the opportunity to visit this area a few times between 2010 and 2013, and always in the summer. As we were on holiday and based ourselves in nearby Lucignano, each day around noon my wife and I would look at each […]
