These are my humble adventures in photography. Encounters with wildlife and humans, issues with equipment, and a few oddballs to round it out.
Once upon a time I did something mildly daft while on a photo hike. I decided to cross a tressel bridge that spanned a broad valley, including both a river and two busy six-line highways.
When I was just starting out with SLR photography, I went on a weekend rock-climbing jaunt in the Rockies with some friends. Guess who hadn't yet learned to load his film?
I've been to the blue lagoon in Fiji. I even brought my camera gear. If I'd brought just one more crucial component, I'd have some photos to show!
Once upon a time, a bootlegger prevented me from taking a photo of his operation during a black-out.
How to win friends and influence people in Japan. Or: when a Japanese woodsman doesn't want you photographing him at work.

This is my book of street photography from Tokyo. An eighty-page distillation of ten thousand photos taken from the nameless streets of the world's largest city over the years 2005–2010.
