July 2013 – on my drive to Isle of Skye, a break in the Scottish highlands.
The old man of Storr visible in the background.
Loved Scotland to bits and can’t wait to return again and redo this hike – it was so foggy that I chickened out of doing the full 2-3 hour circuit and stuck to a very basic hike up to the old man itself. Which accidentally took me right up to the Old Man of Storr… and let me assure you, it’s every bit as imposing, surreal (and a bit terrifying) from up close as it is from down far.
Giant’s Causeway, North Ireland, UK.
Panton front of Oxford’s Bridge of Sighs. July 2013
This was taken as St. Peter’s square – parents hovering nearby and taking their own photographs and making their own readings and re-readings from the story books. The entire bookend to the Italy trip that allowed me to spend time with my parents was a unique, and awesome, and amazing experience. Highlight (well, one of – there is no single BEST moment) was finishing the 3rd (ahem) bottle (ahem) of wine (ahhh, Montepulciano!) with dad on the empty square of a small town and talking about life, universe, everything.
The shadows of Colliseum (waiting before a tour). Posed on one of the old rocks. Worry not! I didn’t cause any more damage than 1500 years of taking it apart did 🙂 Otherwise this particular ex-pillar was used as seating. It blows my mind that some things are so eternal. I hope the idea of a specific design could last as long as a physical object.
Red Eames rocker, Rome, 2012.
Eames in the basement of Vatican. (Thanks to Dad, for watching my back while I was setting and shooting this. It’s much easier to crawl around the floor of anywhere when you have someone holding the equipment and jackets and making sure no one steps on you!)
Vatican City, August 2012.
Rome (Colliseum) – August 2012.
August 2012, the Bramante-inspired staircase.
The tides in Mumbles, Swansea, Wales are massive. Kilometers of exposed and covered rocks and sand. (or is it miles?)
Massive they may be, but they come in very rapidly. By the end of setting up this photograph the waves were threatening to carry my small chair away.
City hall, London, England.
August 2012 – Eames RAR rocker with a Venician gondola in the background.
One of my favorites and was the cover of the 2013 calendar.
Snowdonia National Park.
July 2012, Gower coast in South Wales, UK.
July 2012, Kawartha lakes, Ontario, Canada.
Famous view, famous chair, the two were meant to be.
