Light, water, texture and a random kayaker combined just at the right moment this morning as I made my way south on the I-35 pedestrian bridge over Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin.
July thundershower in the Big Bend
A July thundershower was just ending when I captured this image in Big Bend National Park looking south towards Panther Junction, as seen from just south of the new Fossil Discovery Exhibit area. July 2017. Shot with my Canon 70D and EFS 17-85mm IS USM lens.
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,… Continue reading So Green

Their press release stated: Utilizing blockchain technology, the KODAKOne platform will create an encrypted, digital ledger of rights ownership for photographers to register… Continue reading Blockchain, Image Licensing & Watermarks
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… Continue reading Buon anno!
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… Continue reading Happy Holidays

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.

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,… Continue reading Day Trip: Smithville, Texas
