Photographic Walkabout


Coba, Mexico


Stockholm Planetarium

Long before Youtube made double rainbows fashionable again, I had taken this photo in Nelson, British Columbia while visiting a friend’s summer home. I was wandering the back yard by the lake and happened to notice this fella; took a little bit of post-processing to get some of the color to come out so it’s a bit grainier than I would like.

No Diving Off Bridge

A sturdy bridge somewhere on Kauai

I forget exactly where I was on Kauai when I took this picture; it was near the very beginning of my Walkabout in 2007. Roughly five months of intentional homelessness and the occasional telecommuting in exchange for emotional and physical freedom and renewal. The walkabout process taught me that “walkabouts” don’t happen by accident or circumstance…they are born from need and intent.

I don’t know if I’ll ever have the opportunity for this sort of experience again, now that I have a son. At least, not for a very long time.

Another picture from an older Canada cruise, taken before I had taken much interest in photography. This is still with the point-and-shoot Minolta digital camera at a less-then-stellar 1600×1200 resolution.

Column at the British Museum

I imagine pictures similar to this have been taken thousands of times, but I found this column inside the British Museum underneath an interesting ceiling pattern and thought it was worth capturing.
