It’s a Classic

“The cars we drive say a lot about us.”-Alexandra Paul I want to apologize for the lack of stories for awhile. The explorer in me has roamed around the country in search of the fun and unusual. So here is the first in several interesting happenings along the West Coast and the Pacific Northwest. On May 9th, in Oroville, California, a vintage car show lit up the downtown area.

Fly away with me-Paris (2)

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”-Marcel Proust  During my week of research in Paris, I shot a lot of photographs. I needed to feel and see the people, streets and everyday life of Paris. With my two cameras, a Nikon CoolPix S9500, a gift from my Maui family and my trusty Canon EOS Rebel T3i, everything was at the ready for exploration. With a.. Read More

Fly Away With Me-Paris (1)

“To study in Paris is to be born in Paris.”-Victor Hugo, Les Miserables  One week, and many hours later, I made a huge attempt to remember Paris.

Paris is more than the Eiffel.. Read More

Beautiful bubbles

“If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share”-W. Clement Stone      The day started in gloom. A blanket of grey, dull, overcast that beckons one to stay in and sleep the day away.

Classic road signs

“Trade your expectation for appreciation and the world changes instantly”-Tony Robbins     Departing Kansas at 11:00 in the morning is a late start but some things are unavoidable. As I push through mid-morning traffic on 435 Northbound from Kansas I head towards Omaha, NE.     While rolling through open farmland and cattle ranges, pale, grey skies hang lazily with enough light to remind one that the day is running away from you… Read More

Did you say go West? (chapter 1)

westward-bound-105

“Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind” There is a time when restlessness determines a new direction in one’s life. For me, it this is a constant. The more I feel boxed in, the further I want to fly. So with the washing away of  winter and smell and sounds of spring, it is time to flee. This time the road calls for me to move westward and not necessarily.. Read More

You Better Watch Out…
