If this blog were a book, this post would start a new chapter (and if I had my way, it’d start with a big illuminated lizard standing in for that I in if). For those of you subscribers who feel like the last chapter ended with a bit of a whimper of unresolved story lines, … More A new chapter in Paris
Next step is a bus ride to the docks and then a long ferry ride to Naxos. I should be in Naxos in about nine hours though so I’m really excited about that! Travel has been wondrously smooth so far (I don’t want to jinx it!) Let’s see… I trained from New Haven to Newark … More Made it to Athens!
The olympics just ended in London and without cable at home I was mostly crawling around news sites online to get my olympics fix. I was excited to find that beyond the typical and very excellent sports photography inundating papers and blogs, there were a few more artistic styles being popularized by photographers. One of … More Tilt-shift Photography
Hi Everyone! It’s been a while since my last post but I’ve been busy sorting through notes, making plans and getting back into the swing of things in New Haven. I’m hoping to put up some last pictures and videos from the Europe trip over the next week or so. For the first installment head … More Europe Photos Are Up!
Well, navigating Europe by myself is a challenge but I’m getting a bit better about it. I no longer spread out the map across the entire front seats and dashboard: Instead I have the aid of this fellow sitting next to me: In all seriousness, this is a post about making things work in the … More My new copilot
As I was walking back to my tent last night after brushing my teeth I heard a colossal insect crash land behind me and knew I was in for a treat. It wasn’t too hard to find this guy, he was about 2 inches long! He was very strong and a bit hard to hold … More Beetle
Lest anyone forget I’m here to work and I’ve been busy! Yes I post about the fun but I’m also doing a lot of reading, writing and brainstorming! Today I went to the “Parc Régional de Camargue” at the southern outlet of the Rhône river. It’s a beautiful delta with lots of islands and some … More Lizarding in France
Well, after the market, I decided to postpone the lizard searching for a day and finish the afternoon in Arles. If the market hadn’t been enough, wandering the city cemented it, I love Arles. Arles is an awesome blend of French and Roman architecture. It has an ancient amphitheater and stadium that are still being … More The day in Arles
I got up Saturday morning ready to head to the nature reserve at the mouth of the Rhône River but much to my surprise the downtown had completely changed from the night before. It was market day and I’ve never seen an open air market anything like this. It was over a mile long and … More The market in Arles
I set out of Tremoli at 8 am, excited to head to France. According to my map it was going to take about eleven hours to drive all the way to Arles France, just outside the national park I wanted to get a look at. 11 hours on the map, I figured I’d do it … More Made it to France!
