National Geographic Traveler has started a blog series called, “I Heart My City.” Of course, I had to fill out the questionnaire, which if you love your city, you should too! Here’s mine, just for yucks.

This Saturday, February 28th, I’ll be giving a talk about my work at the Tacoma Art Museum along with the three other photographers selected for the exhibition: Michael Kenna, Doug Keyes and Isaac Layman. The title of the half day program is called, “Taking Pictures Through Multiple Lenses: Photography in the Biennial.” Each of us has been asked to present a 40 minute presentation. I am scheduled to speak at 11:40am, so if you’re in Tacoma and don’t have anything better to do, please join us! I promise to try and make you laugh. I’m looking forward to hearing Doug and Isaac particularly because I don’t know either of these artists personally and their work in the Biennial is impressive. Michael Kenna is always a great speaker and is the most famous of our lot, so I’m looking forward to hearing him speak again, and interested to see what he’s been up to in Japan, besides singing karaoke, which I understand he can do in perfect Japanese. Ohio!

More shameless self promotion It is with great pride that I may announce that a story I shot for National Geographic Traveler Magazine is now online and the printed version is in the mailboxes of subscribers and on a newsstand near you. The story is about dining in Sydney and it’s written by Taras Grescoe. We had a blast and I will describe all of the sordid adventures in a later post. But for now you can view the online gallery here.
