    Old Town Parker

    I recently started a new job and it is a true work-from-home affair. This means that I spend a lot of time in my basement office—where I am now writing this blog post. It’s a nice office, and no one wants to commute, but my previous commute was often quite beautiful: there are mountains and…

  • Thirty Minutes at Fort Casey

    Thirty Minutes at Fort Casey

    For the Whidbey Island photography workshop, we met at Camp Casey which is largely comprised of old barracks and such. Next door—on the other side of some woods—is Fort Casey, which has old fortifications and gun batteries. At some point a few fellow workshop-goers had gone over there, but for some reason I didn’t prioritize…

    Well, this is the twelfth and final post about my trip to Portugal’s Silver Coast.

    I know that I promised last week that this week I would move on from Barrio Viejo, but if you followed the comments on last week’s post, you know that I succumbed to Rob W’s request to publish some stragglers that didn’t make the planned three posts. I keep my weekly posts fairly concise with…

  • Barrio Viejo Doors

    Barrio Viejo Doors

    After having so much fun photographing doors and windows and such in Santorini, Greece, the previous April, last fall I spent some time on two consecutive Sundays out wandering around in a colorful old neighborhood south of downtown Tucson called Barrio Viejo. I had driven through the area a number of times, but the only…

  • The Shapes of Santorini

    The Shapes of Santorini

    Countless domed and arched roofs grace Santorini. As there is little wood on the island, traditionally many of the buildings are constructed out of the abundant volcanic stone, which makes arched and domed roofs very practical. While the examples above are quite spare from the side shown, typically churches are adorned with crosses and bells…
