Ready for the crush (St. Helena, CA)


With fall beginning, I thought it would be nice to pay homage to a region that has familiar bounty.  And while there are most likely countless spectacular photographs of the region, please consider my offering as what a harvest is all about. . . sharing.

California directions

End of the season

It's official. . . it's the last couple of hours of summer.  Only one way to go from here, turn right, straight on to the holidays!

Gathering storm (Western USA)

Heavens opened

Clouds are not something I often post.  But I thought these particularly awe-inspiring.  The suggestion of blue calm behind gathering darkness.  The western US still has huge open expanses where the earth and sky meet.  On this day the view above lasted 15 minutes before I was completely drenched.

Stretching out (India)

Dog days of summer

I have a long weekend and since September is just around the corner, I'm taking a cue from these puppies.  No, not going to sleep on a train track, but I'm going to relax!

Yards of smiles (Darjeeling) 

A warm send off

It's always nice to see a smiling face.  So on this Friday, here's one of my favorite smiling faces to send you into the weekend.

Walk to work (Darjeeling)

A walk

I used to walk to school.  Now I drive to work.  But when I travel, I walk everywhere because I can see more and be inspired by it.  Today, this picture inspired me to walk more.

Waiting to run (Swiss Glacier)

Born to run

They may look cute and relaxed now, but when they were given the chance to run these dogs couldn't go fast enough.  That's my inspiration for today. . . when you're given the chance. . . run HARD.
