Click to preview Roads Less Traveled photo book

A 120 page book of photographs taken in many different places from 2005 through 2008. A few were taken along the main Interstate Highways of the USA, but most were collected along back-country roads, in National Parks or even within walking distance of our home in Parker, Colorado. Some were brought back from trips to the Baja Peninsula of Mexico and a few were taken in East and South Africa.

There is no logical reason for the order of the photographs. They are placed at random with the thought that the reader may turn a page without expectation and therefore be completely un-prepared for what comes next.

Thanks for a great trip to many places I might not actually get to -
Your work is fabulous - the pictures tell wonderful stories.
I loved the scenery & really enjoyed the CA Sea Lions and thought the Elk arch was way cool !
Myself - I am not a photographer - (though I would love to take pics like that) - usually am under Poetry.
I have a book entitled "How Maxine Came To Be" pretty much written by my Pug daughter & myself. Pls come meet her if you get a chance.
Wishing you all good things-
Be Well - Be Happy
