Around the World in Eighty Year’s Best Pictures of 2019

It has been one of those years in which, if I didn’t have any photographs, I might not remember what all happened. It is never easy to choose the best pictures of any year but choosing the best pictures of 2019 was particularly challenging. It was a wild, roller-coaster of a ride where I took […]

Beautiful Birds of Cuba

In Havana I joined a group of carpenters, plumbers and electricians for a game of dominoes. Actually, I just watched. There was no way I could compete with these guys. We shared around a bottle of rum. The men were off the clock, the work day over and they’d set a table in the street. […]

El Centro Infantil De Los Angeles de San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

When I was twenty-three years old I purposely became homeless for two weeks. I wanted to challenge my privilege as a college-educated white man. I wanted to challenge beliefs I held about homelessness and people-in-need in general. I was also a young wanna-be anthropologist who believed that anthropology, despite its past, could be a force […]

At Home. Very Deep Thoughts on Travel, Boobs, Indigenousness, Floating Tribes and Burning Bags of Dog Crap

It was a Dark and Stormy Night Actually, it was a dark and foggy night. You could see across the dirt road to the abandoned mine but you couldn’t see up to the top of the road and across to the fire station.  After dinner myself, my brother and three other friends grabbed our BB […]

Boquete Garden Inn in Lovely Boquete, Panama

I’ll get it out of the way up front.  The Boquete Garden Inn is probably THE BEST little inn I’ve stayed at, ever. Understand, of course, that I am a fanatic for birds, gardens and flowers. So walking through the gate from the already near-paradise that is the town of Boquete into some place that […]

Where the Fairy Tern is Winging: Convicts, Mutiny and Executions: A Guest Post by Jim McIntosh

Editor’s Note: Brutal rule by an oligarchy is never as far off as we might think. It is something that has happened far too often throughout history and it is a danger the supposedly democratized “Western world” is dangerously close to falling back into at the moment.  Too few people hold too much power and […]

Pictures of My 2012 – 24 Shots from All Over

I was rather heartbroken when I left my kids at the train station on a drizzly morning in Vasa, Finland at the end of March. They were flying home to New Mexico. I was flying south to Toulouse, France. 2011 had seen me in twice in Finland (once with the kids), in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, […]

The Söderfjärden Meteor Crater – Finland

I visited the Söderfjärden on a warm, rainy August morning. The ten kilometers of road south from Vasa were perfectly clear except for two fearless foxes moving from one stand of Red Pine to the other.  I had spent the previous several days in Finland’s Kvarken Archipelago and had heard about the 520-560 million year old meteorite impact crater to the […]
