First, this was the first destination on #SummerofEurope. Why? Um, why not! Well there are several good reasons to start a European multi-city tour in Amsterdam; first, Schipol Airport, I should do a whole blog post on this airport and… Read More
What is the City but the People? I saw this quote on the side of a government building while doing a quick photowalk in Denver last fall. As I read it, I realized it held the very key to understanding cities and urban dynamics.

What Dreams Are Made Of For those who have spent anytime at the University of Central Florida, you know where this photo was taken. For those not familiar with campus, it is right behind the front of the Student Union in the heart of the academic core (this area is never featured in photos for some reason). I have a bunch of photos from this day, it was amazing for photography due… Read More
