The Right Spot, S&K's Tour Divide 2014

I had the absolute pleasure of being a photographer for my brother Sam and his wife Katie as they rode the Tour Divide.  2,700 miles down the spine of the continental US as fast as they could go, not only for adventure but because they were raising funds for a wilderness therapy grant fund.  Blew me away.

Japan part II, June 2013

Japan, part II.  I have a tale to tell.  A tale of force, a force that flows, unending, creeping into tiny nooks and crannies, wending through every opening, flooding past obstacles and carrying all manner of flotsam with it, crashing over barriers and upending things that seemed so recently substantial.

Japan, June 2013

Japan.  My second visit, and just as rewarding as my first in 2006.  Tokyo and the countryside are still amazing, and I still didn't want to leave, but I had also seen a lot.
