Barcelona, Spain 2001

Imagine living in a place where people stop and stare up in your windows all day.  I'd keep the blinds closed as well.  I do that anyway and my place is far from a work of art.

Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2000

Clearly all the bright colors in La Boca have caused this lovely lady to lose her way and decide her stage is now the sidewalk.  Can't say she did not attract attention.

Tokyo, Japan 2000

Had that water been a little less brown, I would have stripped naked and taken a plunge to escape the oppressive heat of Japan in June.

Mykonos, Greece, 1997

After a day of history on the island of Delos, we enter back into the harbor of vacuity on everyone's favorite Greek Island.

Teotihuacan, Mexico 2009

Everyone thought it would be fun to climb to the top of the pyramids at Teotihuacan, but they did not think about going down.  Many a lost step was savored.

San Diego, CA 2012

The amazing Mormon Temple in San Diego.  The only thing whiter than the parishioners.

Arezzo, Italy 2006

Sure there are tons of antique stores all over Arezzo, most as charming as this one but how do you plan on carting all that stuff back?  Unless you are sleeping with the DHL man, its going to cost you!!

Vienna, Austria 2006

Ah lovely Vienna, so austere, so clean.  Let's go get a drink where the young Adolf Hitler once was a patron.  Clearly I am thrilled!

New Hampshire, USA 2005

Now I can't even remember where in New Hampshire this is, probably Lake Winnipesaukee, but the only reason I am digging this one out from the vault is to wish I could be plopped into autumn immediately.  I don't care if it means winter is coming.  Screw summer!

Miami, Florida 2004

This is date stamped incorrectly as 2003 in case someone comes after me to find out how it is I cleared South Beach just for my photographic pleasure.

NYC 2012

Here we are ever so briefly at the World Trade Center memorial where I was unceremoniously booted out after throwing pennies into the fountains.  Who knew!

Chicago, IL 2008

There's John, the eternal optimist near the inflatable failure of an attempt to get the Olympics to Chicago.  Viva Rio!!

Boston, MA 2004

Taking my Canadian friends on a tour of Boston, we stop at Haymarket in all its glory.  Come for the freshest produce daily, stay for the smell of the trash left behind..

Split, Croatia 2010

You cannot go anywhere in Croatia without finding "authentic" Croatian donkey for sale.  Cute I should admit, but trust me, they are just as cute in Greece.

Yokohama, Japan 2000

Take this view, shake for about 20 seconds and then you know how I felt during the 6.3 earthquake we had while I was in my hotel room.

Berlin, Germany 2008

Taking in some of the remnants of the Berlin Wall and once again I am faced with the realization that everyone is getting some but me.

Montepulciano, Italy 2006

You would think her and her beast would be much thinner having to walk up these hills daily.

Thursday, July 12, 2012

Jerusalem, Israel 2011

Wandering through Old Town Jerusalem when I came across this store selling Greek religious wares.  Happily I wandered in and greeting them in Greek to blank stares.  Yup, no Greeks to be found.  Kind of a metaphor for the future of Greece I guess.

Nizwa Fort, Oman 2012

I was so tempted to get shot from this cannon back to a land where 100 degrees is not considered temperate.

Montreal, Quebec 2004

Made of butter, this frightened mass need not fear.  It was only November when they were created.  They are good until at least May when the corn gets fresh and temps crawl past freezing.

Glyfada Beach, Greece 2010

The fantastic ghost ship in the Peloponnese.  Any bets that there are squatters by now?  Wither Greece :((

Melbourne, Australia 2000

Shoppers in downtown Melbourne show no fear of the oncoming trolleys.  Where I am from, those trolley drivers would either be so oblivious or intentionally evil that there would be free rides on the front bumper.

Cambridge, MA 2012

An exquisite Shepard Fairey mural in Harvard Square.  Of course we must sully it with posed children.

Coronado, CA 2012

Ah lets relax on the amazing beach in Coronado.  So peaceful...that is until the military planes start landing inches from your head!

Seattle, WA 2009

Being a huge fan of Neon and of inappropriate uses of religion, this was pretty much Mecca for me in Seattle.  I did not see Jesus at the mission though sadly.  Day off?

Prague, CZ 2007

If everyone was so damn cute and got to carry guns then why was Communism such a failure?

Provincetown, MA 2012

Lots of things you can't do in this store but what you can do is stand underneath a fan that does not look all the securely fastened.   Enjoy!

Dubrovnik, Croatia 2010

Like a giant bowling alley with the head pin for a spare, I roll the proverbial ball through the tour groups and make a direct hit!!

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Vancouver, Canada 2009

Strolling in downtown Vancouver and lo and behold its Critical Mass time.  Can you sue a skateboarder if they take you down?

Rome, Italy 2006

Daily life in Rome; the man asks the woman if she thinks its a good idea if they drop tourists off that building to see if they bounce

Sunday, June 17, 2012

Riga, Latvia 2011

If she drops a deuce and it rolls....well you can imagine.... (The roof of the Cat House)

Brussels, Belgium 2011

Le Grand Place, so magical, such amazing architecture, even with a little rain a place one can linger in for hours......oh who am I kidding, where are the waffles????

Friday, June 15, 2012

Tallinn, Estonia 2011

After climbing an impossibly narrow set of 4000 stairs behind a couple of senior citizen tourists, my reward was this stunning view of the roofs of Old Town Tallinn and a bucket of sweat.

Stockholm, Sweden 2001

If there is a heaven, I want my apartment to be in its version of this square.  I wonder if that is part of the deal.  Does the Bible say that you get to choose where you live in heaven?  I might have to think this one over a little more...

Paris, France 2011

I don't know if I am buying his act here.  Firstly, he is wearing Camper shoes, his beard is expertly trimmed....oh who am I kidding, look at those beasts!!!  xoxoxoo

Budapest, Hungary 2010

In the Central Market, where we find some retired Hungarian supermodels serving strudel.  Girls have to make a  living!

Dubai UAE 2012

I think the new plan for The World Dubai is to wait for the fish to walk out of the water and start the inhabitation according to Darwinist thought.  

Ljubljana, Slovenia 2010

Usually annoyed by these sorts of PDAs, being in the amazing city of Ljubljana, one as jaded such as myself can imagine falling in Ljub-love at least so I could hang out by a fountain all day and not look like a homeless person.
