  1. Path to Happiness. Profile: Scott Harrison

    2021-10-25 11:01:10 UTC
    Have you met anyone who didn’t like a merry-go-round? I haven’t.  A truly unique example is the Carousel of Happiness in Nederland Colorado. Its roots are in a carousel built by Danish woodcarver Charles I.D. Looff, who built the first carousel for Coney Island. Looff went on to construct carousels…

  2. Madrid, Art Capital of Spain

    2021-10-10 11:00:45 UTC
    Fruit Vendor Storefront Madrid. The capital of Spain, its largest city and the home of the National Museo delPrado, a world-class museum known for its Spanish centric collection and international art. Madrid is a beautiful city with wide boulevards, great restaurants and oh yeah, pickpockets. The sidewalks can be very…

  3. Tasteful Travel

    2021-09-23 12:44:37 UTC
    Life is about moments and building memories. Photographs freeze moments in time and while younger readers don’t want to hear it, as we get older we treasure those memories, especially if we were thinner and had hair. In my photographs I note my life through my assignments and personal travels.…

  4. Washington, D.C. • Home Again

    2021-09-13 22:00:32 UTC
    Reagan Airport (DCA) Yes, that is the title of my book, it is also my status after two months in Colorado. If you have been reading the blog, from a photographers view, it was not the ideal trip, the haze thing which I have noted ad nauseam. It was an…

  5. Pop-up Classic Car Show, Boulder

    2021-09-06 02:07:56 UTC
    Now this was a  nice surprise, a car show on the street in Boulder. This one had a variety of cars, mostly American, the land yacht above is a stunner, a 1964 Lincoln Continental Convertible replete with suicide doors, 18 feet long, yes, that is correct, 18 feet.  There were…

  6. A Glorious Colorado Morning

    2021-09-04 17:44:45 UTC
    There are just a few days left before I return home to Washington,D.C. The weather here in Boulder has been iffy lately, atmospheric haze, clouds coming in and out, sometimes heavy,  but this morning … glorious! Sunny, low humidity and clear skies, Today’s venue, Sawhill Ponds, just a few miles…

  7. My Favorite Colorado Vistas …

    2021-08-30 13:19:27 UTC
    I’ve been here in Colorado, my first post Covid trip, since early July. During my professional career I shot everything from stunt pilots in a chase plane to exploding soda bottles to members of the Reagan administration along with architectural and food photography. Landscapes, are something I appreciate. I admired…

  8. Colorful Breckenridge

    2021-08-28 17:26:54 UTC
    It was back in the rental SUV for another road trip, a short one this time, Boulder to Breckenridge and a 2-night stay. Just short of 2 hours on the road, about 80 miles on good roads. I traded in that lumbering 4Runner for the smaller, better handling Ford Edge.…

  9. Route 133 to Where?

    2021-08-18 15:25:18 UTC
    As I mentioned in my previous post, I spent too little time in Telluride and it definitely warrants another visit. For this trip, after consulting Google Maps and Apple Maps, I planned about a six hour drive back to Boulder. You know the expression “You make plans and God laughs?”…

  10. Telluride. Posh Mountain Lifestyle

    2021-08-18 15:18:05 UTC
    My visit to Telluride, unfortunately, felt more like a drive by. I got there early but nary a parking  spot could be had. It turns out there was a jazz festival in town. After circling blocks and scanning the streets,  I got lucky and found a space. Telluride was packed…
