Island Life

2015.05.12

I’ve just returned from a 27 day trip through Uganda, London, Houston and Nicaragua. I’m finally at a point where I can look through the images I’ve captured along the way and begin the editing process. One of the more photogenic places we visited was a couple of small islands in Lake Victoria, Uganda. Here are a few of my favorites from their daily life.

Storm Rolling In

2014.12.12

It’s been a while since a storm like this has hit the California coast. On a trip GoWesty in Los Osos to get a replacement accelerator cable, I stopped at some favorite spots.

In the name of progress

2014.09.27

All day, ships arrive on the shores of the Ganga River with their bellies full of sand used for construction. It is off-loaded bucket by bucket, on the heads of men.

Three weeks on the road.  Went just like that.

Abstraction

2014.07.30

Sometimes I was able to walk five feet. Occasionally, I hardly moved an inch before I saw another angle.  Slot canyons are another subject that isn’t new, but I’ve wanted to see and shoot for a long time.  This little gem off the beaten path gave me exactly the experience I was looking for.  As the sun moved across the sky, everything changed.  I spent several hours inching my way up the canyon in complete awe.  I can’t edit this massive selection any more.  I’m just too attached.

Horseshoe Bend

2014.07.29

 

I parked the Westy at horseshoe bend my last night.  There was a lot of light pollution from nearby road construction, and with the aid of my flashlight, I got a little detail.  Not the best shot, but a pretty cool experience!

The Town of Taos

2014.07.28

I was disappointed when I realized I would only have a single afternoon in Taos.  My return schedule just wouldn’t allow me any more time – I had to put some miles behind me.  The afternoon I did have, however was fantastic.  I made a great new friend and whet my appetite for more.  I’ll be back for sure.

City of Holy Faith

2014.07.26

The oldest capital city in the US, Santa Fe is a city I’ve imagined since writing my 4th grade state report on New Mexico.  It has all the mystery, charm and magic I had stirred up in me by the books I read.
