Moving Pictures – Salzburg, Austria

 Salzburg, Austria,destinations,eurotrip   Apr 12, 2016    By

Austria is definitely one of my favorite European countries, having previously listed both Vienna and Graz on my top 10 cities and hidden gems lists, respectively. I came to Salzburg for the ‘Sound of Music’ tour, but it was a puppeteer in Mozart Square that really stole the show. I prefer street performers with unique […]

Shutter Love Sunday – Verona, Italy

The skies were gray, the rain was pouring, but I still managed to get a great shot of a main piazza in Verona. I was here over Valentine’s Day weekend, so mobs of tourists were in town to visit Juliet’s house…one of the most famous fictional lovers born from Shakespeare’s pen. Verona is just a […]

Shutter Love Sunday – Bifrost, Iceland

 Bifrost, Iceland,wanderlust   Apr 3, 2016    By

This is probably my favorite picture I’ve ever taken, and it comes from a rural area just outside of Bifrost, Iceland. During a mind-blowing road trip across the country, we stumbled upon some Icelandic horses relaxing under a rainbow. Iceland has glaciers, waterfalls, volcanoes, geysers, beautiful sunsets, cute puffins, and much more. I strongly recommend […]

I found these sculptures all over Lucca, a city I wish I spent more time in. I later found out this was the work of Rabarama, a contemporary artist originally from Rome whose humanoid sculptures always have some interesting pattern over the skin. For this unique art and many other reasons, shave some time off […]



Yesteryear Europe, March – Dickens

 London, history,wanderlust   Mar 24, 2016    By

Few would argue that Charles Dickens is one of the best writers of the 19th century. Mostly known for ‘A Christmas Carol’, that novella spawned a multitude of depictions in other media. The most popular of my generation is probably the Bill Murray movie ‘Scrooged’, but I’m more partial to the George C. Scott rendition […]



Moving Pictures – Monterosso, Italy

 Monterosso, Vernazza, destinations   Mar 22, 2016    By

I remember taking a break-dancing class as a kid in the early 80s…I was terrible at the backspin! Back in college I played bass guitar in a hip-hop band. We had the works – DJ, multiple MC’s, wildstyle graffiti artist…and break-dance specialists. Little did I know that my trip to Cinque Terre in Italy would […]



Shutter Love Sunday – Cascais, Portugal

 Cascais, destinations,photography,Portugal   Mar 20, 2016    By

Together with Sintra, Cascais is a must-do day trip when you’re in Lisbon. The attractive little building shown below is the Chapel of Saint Sebastian. Note the blue and white tiles on the facade…Portugal is known for these and you end up seeing ‘artsy tiles’ everywhere.
