When I think of a country a certain variety of colours come to mind. For many people memories of places are often associated with a group of smells or sounds or any mixture of things that stimulate the senses. For me it is the same, but being a photographer I feel very tuned into colours that remind me of what I saw as I ventured through whatever region or country or city. If there was one country on our planet that seemed to pop with every colour imaginable it would be Mexico. Mexico has very distinct sounds and smells as well as tastes and feels but the colours are what captures my attention and in a big way. I love this county! Ive traveled to Mexico on 4 separate occasions and the more I see, the more I want to see. I am still discovering things and places that seem to defy the imagination. Whether you are into food, music, architecture, nature or urban scenes, this country has it all. Some people ask me if I'm scared by its reputation for being extremely dangerous and I can't say that its not, but I can say that its not as bad as what you see in the media. Mexican people are often the nicest and most hospitable people Ive ever met. How they can be so kind and open as well as ruthless and dangerous is beyond me but I will not stop traveling there. There is just to much beauty and love to experience. Mexico is just too special of a place to not explore its deferent fasets. If there was one country that encompasses all the colours of the rainbow it would be Mexico.

Ive stayed in a wide variety of accommodations over the years. They have varied from hotels to houses. From boats to trains, tents to palaces and even parks and ship docks. There are many I wish I had taken the time to photograph, but here are a couple that I did and they hold very fond memories for my self and my friends.

What a year! 2017 started off slow but picked up fast and by the end I had checked off a few of the most incredible places on our planet. Starting off on one of three trips to Barcelona, I had the privilege to experience Spain's famous Easter Week, Semana Santa, as I traveled through the Southern region of Andalusia. After that I went back to Amsterdam for a short time as I was headed to Dubrovnik, Croatia for the first time. May came faster than I was expecting and I spent the early summer with friends and family in Washington D.C. and Seattle. Then I was on my way back to Mexico. This year I started off in my favourite City, Guadalajara, and then went to Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende. Then a short trip to Puebla before finishing off in Mexico City. August came and I took some time to gear up for the big finale as I left for New Zealand in October. I have been wanting to see Milford Sound for many years and it did not disappoint! Just as I had thought things would quiet down I had one last little trip to Naples, Italy to take care of. No year is really complete without a trip to Italy. In all it was a great year and I am so happy to have been able to do what I did, and go where I went, and as always, the best is to be able to share with my friends and family. I have high hopes and big plans for 2018 and I wish everybody a happy and exciting New Year! Love to all!
