Close Up and Far Away
Travels, Adventures, Friends, Big Days, and Tiny Moments
I post occasional photoessays about interesting people and places. If you sign on using the form on this page, you’ll get a notice when I publish (generally just a few times a year). This is a new location for my blog. Here are links to favorite photoessays from my old site:
Detroit: A great city, battered but resilient
I visited empty lots turned into Detroit Abloom, art created throughout a decimated neighborhood at the Heidelberg Project and optimistic residents.
Women at Work in Mexico
I met intrepid women when I took photos all around Mexico for Pro Mujer, a micro-loan nonprofit for small businesses.
Buttons, Floppy, and Queenie will be sorely missed
On a road trip to Nova Scotia, I came across a quiet, charming pet cemetery, one of the highlights of the trip.
The Disgruntled Lions of Italy
Most of the lions holding up buildings look grouchy. I took their pictures and guessed what they were thinking.
