Paris!  So many takes on Paris here, many unusual and unique.  Some classic views in black and white and some abstractions.

Père Lachaise Cemetery.   A really beautiful and spooky cemetery with many famous inhabitants.  All of these are shot in black and white infrared and include images of the tombs of Edith Piaf and Oscar Wilde.

Museum of Comparative Anatomy.  This museum was a trip highlight for Zane and I, a remarkable collection with almost every skeleton displayed, from hummingbirds to whales to dinosaurs.

Bilbao Spain.  Our stop in Bilbao was short but amazing.  I spent a lot of time shooting the fabulous Bilbao Guggenheim, an incredible work of modern architecture designed by Frank Gehry.  There are many shots of the titanium clad exterior as well as a black and white study of the interior ceiling shapes.  On the last night I was exhausted but I climbed a big hill to a carnival with an amazing Ferris Wheel illuminated by LED lights.  It was late at night, I didn’t know where I was and I didn’t speak the local language but looming above me in the darkness, surrounded by thousands of locals, was the most amazingly colorful subject I had ever photographed!  A lot of people stared at me as I set up my tripod but no one bothered me.  Eventually the lights all turned off and I left, only to see an amazing fireworks show right above my head!  It was so intense being that close to the launch site.  So out came the camera again.  You will see that I had fun with some of these, combining and recombining the fireworks and wheel photos to make new pieces.

Just a few from Madrid, we were only there overnight and I had a horrible tension headache.  The last four were taken in the Madrid Cathedral.

Reflections.  This is a series of reflection photos, I am intrigued by the compositional possibilities and layering that reflections allow.

Barcelona roll-up doors.  Many of the small businesses in Barcelona have roll-up doors and have interesting art, sometimes advertising their wares.  I did a bunch of thee and made one large print in a grid.

And finally… an iPhone only gallery.  Sort of a chronicle of the trip, I think some of the best shots came out of my favorite pocket camera.
