Every time I glance at my two favorite images of this ostentatious peacock, taken at the Los Angeles Arboretum & Botanic Garden, I am reminded of the irreplaceable gift that has been given to us. What could have motivated Mother Nature to design such glorious colors and intricate patterns? We humans may never have the answer, but I am inclined to believe that it was simply to soothe the soul;...

I awoke at 4:30am with plans to climb a mountain to photograph the sunrise. We were at a bed and breakfast in the Catskill Mountains for a three-day photography course. The fog was dense that summer morning, so the majority of the photographers went back to bed. I borrowed a Nikkor VR 70-200mm f/2.8G and walked down to the edge of the river, where I quietly sat for the sunrise. One deer, then...

Moored at the abandoned Alameda naval base is the USS Hornet aircraft carrier. I decided to explore this floating museum while my wife attended a nearby antiques fair.

Climbing down the steep ladders, I became fascinated by the chambers and hallways, each compartment separated by a sculptural door. As I wandered the empty halls and rooms on my own, with the smell of oil in the...

I return to Ireland each year, since my parents were born there and most of my family reside there. I try to capture the essence of this beautiful island year after year, mostly through landscape photos of Ireland’s emerald green patchwork fields, majestic mountains, and glorious scenery. One day, this window caught my eye, and to me, captured everything that Ireland appears to be: a nation...

Meandering through Miami’s Brickell financial district, I expected to be taking pictures of the architecture rather than nature. However, I was nicely surprised when this small anole appeared. I was struck not only by his eye-catching bright green skin, but also by the way his pink tongue matched the flower. This happy scene reminds me of nature’s resiliency as it seems to affirm...

One of my favorite art galleries is the Jellies Gallery in California’s Monterey Bay Aquarium. The “art” is constantly moving and endlessly fascinating. On my last visit I stood mesmerized in front of the giant sea nettle exhibit for about 20 minutes, trying to capture the sinuous grace of these incredible creatures with my D-SLR. It wasn’t until I stepped back that I...

During December of 2006 we spent two days in London en route to Israel. Although the weather was cold and gray, we spent much of our time outdoors. My 17-year-old daughter brought along an old film Canon Rebel she borrowed from a friend. Being an artist, she spent much of her time trying to capture interesting shots she could later paint. After a few years of urging her to try photography as...

While watching the sun set over Monument Valley on the Arizona/Utah border this past January, my shadow and that of two good friends fell across this sandstone boulder. Raising my camera (I'm in the middle), I not only recorded the grandeur of Monument Valley, but also embossed our shadows forever on this print as a reminder of this trip and our friendship.
