Adventuring at the Teddy Roosevelt National Park – near Medora, North Dakota. October, 2016.

By the time that this post goes live, I will have wrapped my trip to Bismarck, North Dakota, and will be traveling back to Washington, DC.  I am not a spiritual person, though standing on the edge of this view of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park may have been one of the more divine moments of my life.

Apologies are due – Bouznika, Morocco

Life has a certain way of obliterating any plans to revamp websites and produce portfolios (the kind that elevate one’s middling photography into a stellar form of expression that causes art buyers to quiver in their boots and fight over your oldest edits). That’s just fine with me.
