A trip to China in the days prior to the 2008 Olympics and before all the veneer was complete. A country with all vast contrasts increased by the drive to put on a show for the world.
I have traveled around the globe for over 40 years, initially for "business" and for the last 15 years to experience the unique cultures, people, places and things that are all part of our wondrous world. http://www.myviewsphotography.com/ During this time I built this aerobatic aircraft and flew it from Washington, DC to Alaska and back--an extraordinary adventure! With the completion of my trip to Antarctica in February 2008 as crew member on a racing sailboat, I've now been on all seven continents. "Sailing to Antarctica: The Whole Story" gallery on this website captures that once-on-a-lifetime experience. Along the way I began to try and save some of the things I saw in photos. Enjoy!
