My latest blog post: "Photography is Like Visiting Your Internal Optometrist"

Gyeongbokgung Palace
Seoul, KR

As I reached the far end of the absolutely beautiful grounds of the Gyeongbokgung Palace it started to rain, of course. That wasn't going to stop me from wandering through the rest of this historic grounds and by the time I got back to the front gates I was thoroughly soaked but still grinning from ear to ear. Never let a bit of rain ruin your day!

Mystery Animal Under Ice
El Dorado Forest, CA, US

What do you see???
So as I dangled my camera over a frozen river to take pictures of the ice, this particular spot stuck out to me as these bubbles in the ice immediately reminded me of an animal. But, various other people I've shown this image to either don't see it, or see a completely different animal! It's kinda like a naturally-made Roschach test I guess. What do you see? I sure hope someone else sees the same animal that I do.

Not Only Bathroom Tools
Davis, CA, US

I love how the human race comes up with a tool to do one task, and the creative side of our brains come up with a gazillion other uses. You would definitely never want to use this particular toothbrush in your both, as it's from an artists studio that has been used to shape clay and art over the years and would have a rather gritty taste to it. I think the toothbrush is one of the most reused tools out there today (have any better examples in your head? Please post them in the comments as I'm curious!)

Gulliver's Finger
Buenos Aires, AR

As you may remember, I've always loved looking up at bridges and their support structures. The last similar picture I posted was from Dublin, IE and the image in this bridge is nearly on the other side of the world in Buenos Aires, AR.

Leaves Over Glass
Seoul, KR

I happened to get to South Korea at the perfect time to see the fall colors. The parks, like the one I took this image in, were lit up with stunning yellows and reds. I thought the blue building behind this one made a nice backdrop to the reds in these leaves.
