Seattle 2021 …

I took a ton of photos during my recent trip to Seattle and this is my favorite of the bunch. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's the dramatic composition, maybe the mystery of the two people who seem oblivious to my picture-taking and into their own little worlds. Maybe it's the futuristic rise of the...

Some Thoughts on Traveling Again …

I took a trip last week, my first since November 2019. It was just a short up-and-back, three-day trip to Seattle, one of my favorite cities, but a trip nonetheless. I called it my “training-wheel trip,” just a quick jaunt to see what travel felt like in this new world. And make no mistake about... Continue Reading →

Leaving on a Jet Plane …

I'm about to take my first trip in 18 months, something I'm calling my "training wheel" trip. While I only have a couple of trips planned this year, this first one is just for a few nights, just to get used to the whole procedure of travel again: the airport, the plane ride, the hotel...

Escape Velocity …

Like pretty much everyone else, I miss travel. My last trip was in November 2019, which marked my sixth in that year alone, by far the most I've ever traveled in any one year. I visited Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Austin, New York, and the UK, with stays in both Harrogate and London. I'm about... Continue Reading →

Friday Flashback #085 …

From the National Railway Museum in York. This sprawling warehouse dedicated to all things train and railroad, from actual trains and engines to the most minute bit of train travel items is a must-see day out if you're in the York area. Beautifully laid-out and curated, this museum appeals to everyone, even if you've never... Continue Reading →

Friday Flashback #084 …

One of the beautiful shopping arcades in Leeds. I love these venerable old buildings, the world's first indoor shopping malls, I suppose (although any market could be categorized as a "mall" when you think of it). I especially love them when they're all gussied up with holiday decorations. I'm hoping my upcoming trip will include... Continue Reading →

Friday Flashback #083 …

Another British river, but this time from York. I loved York on my first visit ... it's winding cobblestone streets made me feel like I was walking on history every step of the way. I also really enjoyed the remaining segments of the Roman wall around the city and walked all 3 of them. I'm... Continue Reading →

Friday Flashback #082 …

I love this view from the Southbank area of London, looking past the restored OXO building to St. Paul's Cathedral and beyond. This is my favorite part of London, from about Westminster Bridge all the way up to the Tower Bridge. This photo is also at high tide for the Thames. And, oh! Those Clouds... Continue Reading →
