Merry Christmas and Happy New Years

As we prepare to go visit family I wanted to take a moment to thank my on-line family for your support during the year. I expanded my reach to over 80 countries and had the best year for visitors with over 9,000 visitors and close to 20,000 views.

Next year we will take ourselves and our lenses to four different countries and revisit some of our favorite domestic locations so please stay tuned.

I wish you all a happy end to 2018 and even a better year in 2019 and a joyous holiday season.

Smithsonian Candidate #2…Ghost Ship

I am thinking of entering the Smithsonian Photo Contest even though I have zero chance of winning. I say that not to denigrate my ability as a photographer, but each category already has over 50,000 entries. Sure a lot of them are crap but some, well follow the link above and see for yourself. Also you can only submit work from 1/1/2016 until the present and all works with people must have a model release.

If you are familiar with any of my work (e.g. Moment and Souls) you probably realize I don’t have a lot of model releases.

Fortunately I do have some images that may qualify in other categories and will be publishing some here to see if you feel they quality. Please comment and let me know your thoughts. This is an entry in altered image category of a boat at sunset off La Isla Dora in Quintana Roo, Mexico.

Sunset on Quintana Roo

Each night in The Mayan Rivera gives you another opportunity to see a magnificent sunset. This was photographed at La Isla Dora in 2018. A docked tourist pirate ship is in the foreground. Well I assume it is a tourist ship.

Always Sunny at the Westin Lagunamar

The Lagunamar is a wonderful condo resort we visit periodically. It has a lovely beach although it is still west of the reef so snorkeling is not an option. It is conveniently located with walking distance of a super market and many good restaurants.

Whats make it extra special though is the service. people know you by name and they are all friendly and respectful. On cloudy days they make sure you see the sunshine at the beach.

Caribbean Sunrise

The Sun rises over the Caribbean sea in Quintana Roo. This is the scene we would see each morning from our balcony if we rose early enough that is. In January the sunrise was around 6 A.M. which explains why I have so many more sunset pictures rather than sunrise pictures.

It is a shame because the color is so different in the morning than the evening.

Have Harp Will Travel

One of the things I love about traveling in different parts of the world are the variety of street performers.In Prague they have pianos scattered around the city in public places with signs that say play me. In Paris we saw a string quartet. In Germany we saw organ grinders. In San Francisco we saw someone playing the Chapman stick.

Of course guitars, fiddles and singers are common everywhere. However In Puerto Morelos I saw a new one for the first time. We were leaving when we passed this man heading towards the sqaure. Kinda of sorry I didn’t stay around to heard him play.
