My first collection of travel tales, Can’t Get Here from There: Fifty Tales of Travel, can now be ordered from Amazon: US / UK / Germany / Canada / Australia. The collection contains travel tales from over forty countries spread across five continents, ranging from a birthday weekend spent in Paris with no money or passport to a camel-jacking in Cairo and being smuggled across a checkpoint in Bolivia. These tales offer exotic locations and out of the ordinary experiences, some of which go more smoothly than others.


In addition, to mark a year since the beginning of California’s Stay-at-Home order (March 2020) and the start of my Shelter-in-Place Still Lifes project, I’ve put together a free eBook called Shelter-in-Place Still Lifes: A Selection. The book contains a selection of my favorite still lifes taken over the past year. All photos were taken of objects around the house using natural light. A free copy can be downloaded here.

Travel is about the gorgeous feeling of teetering in the unknown.
