Summer and this year has passed so quickly and somehow we are suddenly already in the first days of November. I have been woefully neglecting this space for the past two months. Do you ever have so much in your mind, so much to do, that you just end up not accomplishing anything? That is how I have been over the last weeks. I have so much travel material, thousands upon thousands of photos, that I want to share here that I am feeling really overwhelmed. Where do I begin? I’m thinking I will need to need to go backwards in order.

This is the first post of several for my trip to the Greek Island of Crete earlier this year. Social media is such a scary beautiful beast. On the one hand it is wonderfully amazing, connecting people that might otherwise never meet. And on the other hand it is, at least to me, so strange and a little bit scary… Read More
I have been lucky enough to do quite a bit of traveling in the last couple months. First back to my home province of Sichuan and most recently to the Greek island of Crete to teach a photography workshop and so this little space has been woefully neglected. I am working on recaps of these two trips along with posts… Read More
