Welcome to the “Bold North” Minnesota

As a travel blogger, I realize that I rarely share much at all about my hometown of Minneapolis. Despite being known for the cold, long, brutal winters, Prince, and the recent host of the Super Bowl, Minnesota actually boasts over 15,000 lakes in the state. It is also home to one of the largest federally protected […]

Its now tuesday

All is quiet in our household. Photography has taken a bit of a back seat as the weather, once again, has not been conducive (that’s a big word for Monday morning) to getting out with the camera. By this time last year I had made eight photography trips out into the National Park and yet, […]

The land of the root and wine

Between the Rhine and the Moselle rivers in southwestern Germany, there is a land known as “the state of root and wine”. Dionysus – the Greek God of Wine – seems to cast a spell on this land, turning all the hills in the region into vineyards and covering towns and castles in vine grapes.

Weathered and worn

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – WEATHERED I resisted putting up a picture of me first thing in the morning. It was tempting, but I finally decided to take a pass on that. Weathered and wood resonate for me. Be there a photographer so dead that he or she had not sought out aging wood barns […]



Preferidos 2017

Life can be viewed as a collection of moments, each one flowing into the next, idiosyncratic, ephemeral, beautiful, terrifying, tragic. Photography helps me see the world. It reminds me of the moments the world serves up to me for free. In 2017 I was fortunate to go from a decent compact camera to an entry-level […]

Baby toes

This week, the Daily Post’s photo challenge is themed Favorite. They ask us to (re-)post our most meaningful photo from 2017 – this is a no-brainer for me. My twin baby boys arrived in June and this photo feels very personal. The related original post is here. Only a few more days ‘til Christmas: have you […]

Even the gods can be experimental

This jazzily bedecked ant may be experimental with his appearance, but there was a greater experiment made with ants in the days of the Trojan War. The Greek island of Aegina was afflicted by a plague and the population was severely depleted. In desperation, King Aeacus prayed to Jupiter to repopulate the island. The king […]
