Casa Luna

It is a restaurant in Tlaquepaque. But it is also a shop with expensive household decorations, furniture, and carpets and fine leather goods. On this evening in May there was a trio playing.

Concordia

About 45 minutes drive inland from Mazatlan is a small town famous for its furniture, especially its style of rocking chair. We found locals quietly talking in and around the central square. Of course there is a large highly decorative church adjacent. Well swept streets were hot, even on this day in early February! On...

Dinner in Tlaquepaque

After a quick trip to the Lake Chapala area we stopped in the Tlaquepaque Arts and Shopping Village, which is part of the greater metropolitan area of Guadalajara. This evening we ate at Real San Pedro, where you can order everything from chicken to wild boar, and then we walked along the streets of shops...

Mérida

First stop in the Yucatan was Mérida. Like many cities in Mexico the range of everything is extreme. Architecture, food, lodging, driving, and more can all be amazing adventures. This little gallery provides a look at the diverse beauty of the area. *The view from our table at dinner. *Part of a huge sculpture in...

Strange Fruit

Its been over 11years since I started exploring the range of things Photoshop, and then Lightroom could do for a digital photographer. Here is one of the very simple things I first learned do with the clone tool back in 2009. Eleven years later it just seems silly, but when I was very new to...

Model Releases

You can not get away from legal issues – even when doing street photography.  This is my answer.  We were pleasantly surprised at the great food available at Au Bon Pain on L Street in Washington DC. A nobody taking pictures will probably never have a problem.  But as you get more recognized, it becomes...

Father’s Day

To call yourself a photographer you need to feel natural carrying thousands of dollars of camera equipment around your neck all the time. We celebrated Father’s Day on  Monday, and even though the forecast called for rain, I took my Nikon 750D with 24-120 zoom to the rooftop bar at the Durham Hotel. Took these...

Tonight’s Blue Apron Meal

I don’t take much time to photograph while I’m cooking, but I took a quick shot of the Blue Apron meal I cooked tonight; Crispy Catfish.  Can’t believe I like this bottom feeding fish! This dish includes farro, kale with minced garlic, and lemon zest. Its garnished with fried rosemary, and lightly roasted Thomcord grapes...

Foodie image

Dinner at Posana in Asheville is made more entertaining at a window seat, where you can watch locals and tourists passing by at the spot in the center of town where Broadway turns into Biltmore Ave. This amazing raw tuna appetizer was the prelude to a symphony of tastes yet to come.  Its always risky...

El Meson de los Laureanos

Dr. Marcos Gabriel Osuna, was born and raised in this house.  It is now a famous restaurant that he owns in El Quelite which is an authentic rural Mexican town just a short drive from Mazatlan. Several rooms are beautifully decorated.  There is a small museum with displays of items important to the region’s culture,...
