3/14/19- Just back from an ocean adventure in the Philippines... namely, the Palawan Island archipeligo. Two weeks of cruising and snorkeling in unbelieveably clear water in bays, coves, and hidden lagoons around Puerto Princesa, El Nido, & Coron island clusters.

refering to the countries of Georgia and Armenia located in a region coined "Eurasia". Daily explorations were like studies of ancient history- monasteries, remote mountain villages, and enduring cathedrals. To view images visit both my Armenia & Georgia galleries.
6/10/17- Since I spent some of my Army service in the Ryukyu island of Okinawa, Japan; I had always wanted to return to that part of the world to see and photograph the changes that had happened to that island over the course of the last 40 years. I and my wife ended up on a cruise itinerary that covered not only the island of Okinawa but also central Japan, the Inland Sea of Japan, the Ryukyu islands, Taipei, and a brief visit to Korea. It was a great way to cover a lot of locations, otherise the logistics of such a trip would have been extremely difficult- not to mention the time involved in doing so. So without further adeu, please visit my Asia gallery to view the various images of the trip.
