So Green

Ireland. It’s really green. Hard to believe it was ten years ago when I took these photographs. Revisiting them now. I had the opportunity to move to Ireland for work, and was visiting looking for a place to rent.  Afterwards a work colleague treated me to a lovely hike around this glacial valley near Glendalough, […]

Their press release stated: Utilizing blockchain technology, the KODAKOne platform will create an encrypted, digital ledger of rights ownership for photographers to register […]

Buon anno!

One of my fondest New Years’ memories is from 1 January 2011 in Venice.  I was living in Ireland at the time, and made the quick trip down to Italy with my girlfriend (now wife) to celebrate the occasion. I remember is was very cold, but a lovely time to visit. It was relatively uncrowded […]

Happy Holidays

A memorable winter scene befitting for this time of the year. I shot this back in 2010 during a quick business trip to Switzerland. It fits the mood I’m in, and my wish for more peace, harmony, and gentle times for all in 2018. This December has been rather eventful for me in a variety […]

I’ve just added a couple more images to my TrIpPy cLiCks gallery.  Both original images were captured with my old Nexus5 phone.  I decided to play around a bit in PhotoShop with these pics. Shot this one back in 2014 while on a business trip to Macau.  It’s a gigantic light fixture at the Galaxy […]

Day Trip: Smithville, Texas

Renovated, affordable, and gorgeous homes with front porches, rocking chairs, in a tree-shaded historical district lining the usually sleepy Colorado River, barely 45 minutes from Austin’s Bergstrom Airport. From the lovely neighborhood one can walk to downtown where new restaurants, refreshing beverage and loungy establishments, galleries, antique and bric-a-brac shops, coffee shops, bakeries, and what-not are popping up. Sophistimakated craft cocktails, […]

2 new TrIpPy cLiCkS

Two new additions to my TrIpPy cLiCkS gallery. No filters. No photoshop. Only cropped. Shot this in Buenos Aires a few years ago. Was sipping a nice Malbec at the time. I call it “Barra de Ensueño.”  Translates loosely to “Dream Bar” or “Daydream Bar.” This one is from way back in 2006 while visiting Marrakesh, Morocco. This was […]
