I made this photograph during a wonderful road trip Ruth and I made with my parents during October 2013.

Leaving from Denver, we traveled southwest through the Colorado Rockies, staying in Crested Butte and Ouray along the way. Following a day exploring and shopping in Durango, Colorado, we drove into northern New Mexico, where we stayed overnight in Farmington. Early the next morning we visited one of my favorite Native American historic sites – Aztec Ruin. We finished our trip staying in Albuquerque and Santa Fe for six nights before driving home to Colorado.

This is the first image I’ve posted from this trip; stay tuned for many more coming soon!

Reflections on the water at the harbor of Monte Carlo, Monaco. The colors and shapes are from the sides of boats and the bumpers hanging off them. I photographed these reflections for a very long time, mesmerized my the infinite random patterns. I also shot several long video clips, which I’m working into a collection of abstract video installations.
