Bonaire Underwater

Bonaire has some of the most beautiful, pristine coral reefs in the Caribbean. This gallery contains photos that I have taken over several years of diving on Bonaire.

Indonesia Underwater

The underwater photos in this gallery were taken while diving with the Wakatobi Dive Resort in Indonesia, in November 2019.

London, 2019

London may be my favorite city. New York is wonderful, but London has the attraction of it's ancient history. These are photos from our all too brief visit to London in 2019.

Highclere Castle, UK, 2019

Highclere Castle is the site where much of the BBC Masterpiece Theater series Downton Abbey and movie was filmed. The Castle and its grounds are beautiful. We had the opportunity to visit as part of a cultural fundraiser so there were only a relatively small number of people there.

Bologna, Italy

Bologna if famous for being a city that loves good food and the good life.


Before moving to the Island of Bonaire, I have lived in California for most of my life. I am a third generation Californian, born in Norther California.

California has changed dramatically in my lifetime. The state can now be characterized by it's large population, traffic jams and Silicon Valley "bro" culture. Despite these factors, California remains a beautiful state.


Photos from a flight over the Alps. These photos remind me of underwater photos, since the reds disappear in the large column of water vapor laden air.

Mendocino, California

Mendocino California is on the coast, in Northern California. The cost is granite and has a rugged beauty that is also found in Big Sur, South of San Francisco.

The drive to Mendocino is about four hours from San Francisco, up windy roads. This makes Mendocino less crowded than Big Sur and the Carmel area.

Rome, 2007

Rome is a beautiful mix of the modern and the ancient.

Barcelona, 2005

Barcelona is a city that is almost impossible to describe in a few sentences. It is a port, a sea side city, with great architectural gems. Here are some photos of the gem of Catalonia.

Venice, 2006

Venice is the bone of an empire that lasted hundreds of years. This makes Venice both beautiful and tragic at the same time.

Venice, 2019

Another visit to Venice, in April 2019

Siena, Italy 2006

Siena is the ancient competitor of Florence (Firenza). They two cities competed as financial centers until Florence conqured Siena in 1554 in the Battle of Marciano Siena never rose to the heights of Florence, but it is still a beautiful city.
