WHERE WE AT? Well I was in Beijing, China. Now I’m back home in Florida. So I am literally back from the future! Ha. No seriously it’s kind of weird because when it is 8am on Sunday morning in China, it’s 9pm on Saturday…the previous day…back in Florida (Florida is GMT – 5 hours and Beijing…

North Atlantic Ice Flows

WHERE WE AT? Looking out the passenger window of the airplane, I noticed these clouds. Awesome compressed weather pattern…like a low pressure system or hurricane. Wait! Those aren’t clouds, they are icebergs! We are about 200 miles south of Greenland at 45,000 feet. That’s a little more than 7 miles in the sky. For reference, those…

The Spirit Of NYC

Island Reflections

WHERE WE AT? Here’s how I ended my year: Little Bay, Sint Maarten by the Dutch of the southern end of the island. The French in the North refer to the island as Saint Martin. Yeah I know, “I say ‘toe-may-toe’ and you say ‘toe-mah-toe’!” Anyhow, here is the map… [nwm_map id=”2″] This is a…

Accordion Acoustics

WHERE WE AT? I found some time for myself in Nice, France. I’m at the end of the day and getting tired as I was up all night working, but this scene was so interesting to me. The accordion music sounded amazing in this acoustic hall. If I closed my eyes, the sound reverberated everywhere…

Amazon Jungle

WHERE WE AT? This is where we got stuck in the tall grass when our captain decided he would take a shortcut in the Amazon Jungle in Brazil. Let me just say that I was not the Captain for those that are wondering…and this was in “wild” portion of the Amazon Jungle. As if there…

Tranquility

WHERE WE AT? I had more time in Nice, France. So here are some photos to share. As I walked along the beach there were a lot of Europeans from the North (i.e., London, Berlin, Copenhagen, etc.). It struck me as interesting how different cultures do things different at the beach. Americans sit on the beach…

Reflections At The Park

WHERE WE AT? I had 4 days to wander about Nice, France. So I had plenty of time to get some exercise walking and exploring with my camera. It’s nice just to people watch here…espresso in hand…and enjoying the bit of sun that was warming me up. Does anyone actually dislike Europe? HOW DID I DO…

London Tower Bridge

This week’s photo is of the Tower Bridge in London, England. Let’s not confuse the Tower Bridge for the London Bridge. I was guilty of this confusion until I first saw the difference. The current London Bridge…well just looks like a modern day bridge…nothing to exciting to be honest. But The Tower Bridge is a very…
