Early Morning Commute

An early morning at a Tokyo train station.

I took this on the day we were returning to Okinawa from Tokyo.  We had to get an earlier flight from Narita than we initially planned so we had to get on the first train from Mejirodai (Hachioji area) at 5:30am.

Street Art in Rome

This was from my first day in Rome.  I headed out just after arriving at the hotel and saw this garage with the wall art right around the corner from the hotel.  I composed the shot to have the motorcycle look like it was climbing on top of the mini car.

Aah The Coliseum...; A Little Roman Reminiscing

During our trip to Rome last February, I took a lot of photos of the Coliseum because we stayed in a hotel just a couple minutes away.  I took sunrise, sunset, mid-day, panos etc, but this is by far my favorite.  In fact, it's the only one of the Coliseum as the main subject I selected as a pick from all those photos.  I particularly like how the people at the bottom give context to the incredible scale of this ancient marvel.

Walking Around Seoul

I was walking around a park near the Han River when this guy pulls up in his custom Harley.  I couldn't resist taking some photos of this fine machine
