Foiled by the Weather at Lake Tekapo

I knew I would have some weather issues visiting New Zealand at the beginning of their winter, so it cam as little surprise to me when I woke up on my third day here to foggy and overcast. In most places, this is a slight┬áinconvenience, but I was heading inland to some of the country’s […]

First Glimpses of New Zealand

First Glimpses of New Zealand

I intend to do a few scenic flights here in New Zealand (weather permitting, of course), but I was lucky enough to have already had one of sorts on my flight from Auckland to Christchurch right at the beginning of the trip. I didn’t have my DSLR camera put together (it was in my bag […]

Dogs on the Beach

Dogs on the Beach

This post is a special one for my wife. We’re never going to have any human children, but we do have three furry children right now. Our dogs hold special place in out hearts. Yesterday, when I was taking my sunset photos on the Pacific Ocean beach in New South Brighton, New Zealand, just outside […]

I was sent to Dallas, Texas this week to pick up a truck for work and drive it back to Michigan. I did the journey over two days. I didn’t make any special stops to ‘sightsee’ as it was a work trip and I had traveled this route at least three other times, meaning I […]

I Left My Heart in San Francisco

I Left My Heart in San Francisco

Well, not really, but I do understand the sentiment. This is an amazing city. Five days wasn’t nearly enough. Many, many posts coming in the upcoming weeks and months. As amazing as it has been, I’m excited about going home and seeing my wife and dogs. Thanks to all of those who have been following […]

Alcatraz- The Rock

Alcatraz- The Rock

I enjoyed my visit to Alcatraz, America’s most notorious prison, despite the crowds. This will make a much more detailed post later, but I will say now that the included audio tour and views of the skyline of San Francisco are well worth the price of admission. Book well in advance, if I hadn’t I […]
