The Most Interesting People in The World

I love making broad, overly generalized and mildly arrogant statements. Are Peruvians the most interesting people in the world? Possibly. But even I'm not sold on my own claims. Peruvians are the most interesting I've personally encountered though. And it's not the brightly colored traditional clothing, leather sandals, bizarre white…

Trinity Church

I read that Trinity Church in Boston is considered to be one of "America's 10 finest buildings." I'm not yet sure what I think about that but I couldn't wait to get a camera in there.  I'd never shot in such a large space before and found there to be…

The Village of Terezin

I took this photo in 2001 though I'm pretty confident the scene has changed little.  I wouldn't be surprised if that Trabant (center) is still parked there and that maybe it had been there for years before I took this photo. This Czech village is very unique and it took me a…

Camp Chase

2,260 Confederate Soldiers are buried here.  Richmond? Fredricksburg?  Would you believe Columbus, Ohio?  But wait.  There was no fighting in Columbus, Ohio.  What were 2,000 Rebels doing way up there?  Actually, 9,400 were held in this Civil War prisoner camp by 1865.  It was named for former Ohio Governor and Senator, Lincoln's…

THE PERUVIAN POSTCARD

Ok, so I had to post it no matter how cliché.  In October of 2008 we were in Peru and, of course, Machu Picchu.   The place is ridiculous when it comes to photography - for professionals and amateurs alike.  From all vantages it's a 360 degree postcard quality setting.  The views from these…
