Apostle Islands: 2011

Lake Superior


In July, I reunited with five other river-boating buddies from the 70's for a sea kayaking tour of the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior. These islands and a portion of the Bayfield peninsula in Wisconsin are part of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, which can only be visited by boat. We spent a week crossing from one island to the next, visiting sea caves and light houses, and camping on some of the islands.




Abstractions: 2010



Piet Mondrian once said that he was “inspired more by the beauty of lines and color and the relationships between them than by the concrete subject of the picture.” Many of my photographs in the past few years have been similarly inspired in that they depend more on the arrangement of colors, lines and form than on the identity of the subject.

These photographs, all which were taken in the past two years, are examples of this approach. The subjects often are evident (e.g., a window or some graffiti) but they are not the primary inspiration for the pictures.

Camino de Santiago: 2010

In the summer of 2010, Peter Schmunk and I traveled to northern Spain. We visited the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the cities of Burgos and León, and a few villages around Burgos. The main purpose of the trip was to backpack on two sections of the Camino de Santiago, a medieval pilgrimage route ending at Santiago de Compostela. We hiked a total of around 110 miles in 8 days on the meseta of Castile and León and the lush (and rainy) hills of Galicia. The pictures currently posted are from Bilbao and the meseta section of the walk.

Mt Athos: 2008

During the summer of 2008, Peter Schmunk, G.R. Davis and I traveled to Rome and the Mt. Athos Peninsula in northern Greece. For seven days we hiked between some of the Greek Orthodox monasteries there and, as pilgrims, we were given food and a place to sleep each night.
