• This is one of my favorite photos from my 3-years of cruising the Pacific on our Hallberg-Rassy 42, 'Andante.'  We were sailing in flat seas in the Gulf of Chiriqui as we made our way toward the Panama Canal.  Suddenly, wind and seas perked up with no clouds anywhere.  My friend and accomplished sailor, Chris Brown, on a close reach as the sun set on the horizon.  Transparency taken while we were cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.
  • Blue man Tilcajete carnival

    $822.00$2,832.00
    Prior to Ash Wednesday the village of Tilcajete, near Oaxaca, celebrates carnival with imaginative animal and creature masks in chanting, grunting, colorful processions. Here, a carnival celebrant wears blue face paint with a jaguar mask on top of his head, and peacock feathers fanned out behind his head. (I have a similar shot of his female companion.) Bekki and I traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico, February of 2020 with my sister and brother-in-law who organize cultural trips to Central America and Mexico.  
  • Blue Truck (1/3)

    $822.00$2,832.00
    During one of our many trips to Maui we rented a car and drove the back road to Hana, along Maui's north shore—including its 617 turns and 59 bridges over 52-miles of mostly dirt road.  Off of a side road I spotted a make-shift junk yard of abandoned trucks.  Need I say more?  Also see 'Graffiti Truck' for another series of images from this shoot.

  • Capesterre

    $822.00$2,832.00

  • Curious Canoe Friends

    $822.00$2,832.00
    Bahia Honda, Panama, became one of the most memorable anchorages of our Pacific cruise.  The howler monkeys on shore sounded like gorillas.  No photos of the gorillas, but these inquisitive boys paddled up for a look.  Bekki discovered from the boys that a small store was located at a nearby village—where she bought a cake mix for my 48th birthday.  Transparency taken with a Leicaflex while cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.
  • Forgotten blue urns

    $822.00$2,832.00
    Three long-forgotten, dust-coated, blue ceramic urns sit abandoned on a dusty table in the organ loft of the church of Saint John the Baptist  in the village of San Juan Bautista Suchix Hahuca. Old wooden candlesticks lie strewn about the table. A still life image caught in time.

  • Grand-Bourg Blue Shutters

    $822.00$2,832.00
    Pastel blue shutters frame a white door with textured glass in the town of Grand-Bourg, on the island of Marie-Galante.  I often walk into these small towns with busy traffic and and run-down infrastructure thinking, "what am I going to shoot here?"  Finding shots like this is like a treasure hunt.  Image made while sailing with friends in the West Indies.
  • Grand-Bourg Mural (2/2)

    $822.00$2,832.00
    The town of Grand-Bourg on the island of Marie-Galante, which is part of Guadeloupe, showcases some amazing murals that most visitors don't even notice.  Painted on walls and buildings, framed by rusty roofs and chained link fences, I admit these murals can be somewhat camouflaged by the village.  Artist unknown.  Part of a diptych. Shot while sailing with friends in the West Indies.

    $822.00$2,832.00
    The San Blas Archipelago, off the northeastern coast of Panama, is home to the Kuna Yala—an indigenous people that inhabit its 365 coastal islands.  The only way to truly experience the islands is by sailboat, and we sailed them for a month.  They sell fruit, vegetables, and handmade mola textiles to the cruisers.  Women wear mola blouses with patterned skirts, red and yellow head scarfs, arm and leg beads, long black lines down the nose, and often a gold nose ring.  Taken while we were cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.

  • Plaza de la Danza

    $822.00$2,832.00
    People gather in the Plaza de la Danza (literally, "dance square") at dusk, adjacent to the Basilica of Our Lady of Solitude in Oaxaca, Mexico. Families still gather socially in plazas and squares throughout Mexico. This plaza was very close to our hotel, so we walked past it almost every evening. I thought it was a quintessential Mexican scene: a plaza with families and friends adjacent to the church and lights twinkling on the distant mountain as twilight fades to night. Bekki and I traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico, February of 2020 with my sister and brother-in-law who organize cultural trips to Central America and Mexico.

  • Valles Caldera National Preserve is located in the Jemez Mountain range of northern New Mexico. The volcanic eruption that occurred 1.25-million years ago left behind a 14-mile wide volcanic caldera.

  • The Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, located about 12-miles northwest of Taos, is purported to be the fifth highest bridge in the U.S., spanning the gorge 650-feet above the Rio Grande. I couldn't resist flying my drone underneath the bridge, which was technically challenging from 800-feet away, above the cliff walls, in the bright sun. High five for not crashing the drone!

    $822.00$2,832.00
    A mountain road on the island of Saint Lucia, part of the Lesser Antilles.  Nothing exceptional about the location—there are millions of similar views throughout the Caribbean.  I just really liked all of the different verdant shades of green; and the composition, with the stone wall and two-track road leading off to the mountain.

    The San Blas Archipelago, off the northeastern coast of Panama, is home to the Kuna Yala—an indigenous people that inhabit its 365 coastal islands.  We sailed the archipelago for a month.  One day we found this little round little button of an island with white sand, one palm tree, and a grounded freighter in the background.  So we decided to do a 'shipwrecked' triptych.  Bekki donned a dress.  I rowed her to the island in our dinghy, and then rowed away to photograph.  That's trust!  Images made while we were cruising the San Blas in our sailboat 2001.

  • An additional perspective on Temple IV (Temple of the Double Headed Serpent) in the background, with Temple 33 in the foreground.  Only the base of Temple 33 now remains.  I sat at my photo vantage point for 15-minutes, listening to the jungle and birds.  Taken while we were cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.
  • I love this shot of Tikal's Temple IV (Temple of the Double Headed Serpent) as it looks across the jungle on a level plane to the top of the structure, 212 feet from its base.  If you squint, you can almost imagine the torchlight ceremony in the doorway.  Taken while we were cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.
  • Temple of the Great Jaguar

    $822.00$2,832.00
    Tikal became the most powerful kingdom of the ancient Maya, and it is awe-inspiring.  When we visited in 2001 it was relatively devoid of visitors.  This shot of Temple I (Temple of the Great Jaguar) is taken from the back.  A line of visitors in the shadow provides perspective.  Taken while we were cruising Central America in our sailboat 2000-2001.

  • Thatched Cabana Pier

    $822.00$2,832.00
    The cabana on this pier takes on a golden glow in the setting sun near Bocas del Toro, Panama.  We had no idea that we would never again return: The September 11 terrorist attacks changed the world.  Image taken while cruising Central America in our Hallberg-Rassy HR 42 sailboat 'Andante,' in 2001.
