The other day, Niels invited me to take a trip with him to Queretaro, Mexico, a little over an hour away from SMA. While there, we walked around and did photographer things. You know, take pictures. While Niels and his wife, Claudette, were getting maps of the area, I looked across the street, saw this beautiful, yellow building. I framed it up, but there were only 1 or two taxis in front. I thought, how great would it be to…

Sunday, I had an opportunity to see some Azteca dancers perform in the Jardin. From all around town, you could hear the drumming. Niels and I decided to check out, and I’m glad that we did. We saw them at around 11:00 in the morning. At that time, the sun was pretty intense, and the shadows deep. Most of the shots that I took were, as one might expect, not exactly dazzling, especially the far away shots, lots of hard…

This week, I am in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, or SMA. While following Niels Henrikson, on Facebook, I noticed that he was going to leave Toronto, Ontario, Canada in early December and head down to SMA for a few months, until the end of March. I contacted him and asked if he would mind if I made a visit to SMA. He said that he’d be glad to show me around. So, here I am, some 3 months later…

At first, when I read this, I thought:…

This photo of the Ashley River, near Summerville, SC, was taken in October of 2008. I had just arrived in Charleston 2 months prior. This was a time of exploration and, as this river was only a couple of blocks from my apartment, an easy walk, I was there quite frequently. I’m seriously drawn to water. Sometimes I like to go back through my photos of that time, August 2008 – February 2010, and look at all of the photos…

Friday, it was sunny and 67. Saturday, it was snowing like crazy, complete with thunder and lighting! Sunday morning, it was very cold, but starting to thaw. Yesterday. Rain. Today, sunny and moderate and the trees are displaying their buds, but not yet blooming. I enjoyed the walk in the snow on Sunday morning, but, equally enjoy a walk in the sunshine! I can have my pick, at least this week, by just waiting a few hours. These shots, only…
