Turkey Trip Day 3: When in Rome, do what the Romans do. When in Istanbul, jaywalk!

I have a confession to make. I was a total idiot and opted not to bring a laptop on this trip, opting instead to use the WordPress app on my phone. And indeed, it worked FLAWLESSLY… for the first day’s post. Yesterday’s post crashed on me and messed up the text and photos about...

Turkey Trip Day 2: Time traveling through Byzantium, Constantinople, and Istanbul

Isolated Thunderstorm

I often hear the weather forecast mention isolated thunderstorms, but don't see them that much. Especially not in such a dramatic setting as the descent to the Snake River separating Lewiston, Idaho and Clarkston, Washington. The river is also consider...

Palouse Study #3

Continuing my Palouse series with a cheery crayola scene... Visiting the Palouse, I got a sense of the region right away, but conveying that sense in a photograph has been tricky for me. I think it helps to have a subject in the frame; it still shows t...

Palouse Study #2

I visited the Palouse last spring during a college-shopping trip; that was my first chance to photograph this grain and lentil-growing region.  Then I tended to photograph in a more abstract way, which I have a habit of doing.  This year I de...

Palouse Study #1

I've just returned from a beautiful weekend in the Palouse, and I have a series of photos to share from this grain-growing region in Eastern Washington and Western Idaho.  Saturday was warm and sunny, and puffy white clouds increased throughout th...
