Returning to Kenya and Israel

I am pleased to announce that we will be heading abroad later this year, with visits to Kenya and Israel in the same big trip. It has been a few years since we have been to either country (2015 and 2016 respectively), but a return to Africa was something high on the agenda for some time. Because we... [more]

Travel and Tripod Tales of Woe

Last week we flew into Tel Aviv via Hong Kong. The airlines unfortunately left half the HGK-TLV flight's luggage in Hong Kong, including all our clothes, and my tripod — a Manfrotto MT293A4 and 494RC2 travel tripod combo I had specifically bought for this trip. The morning after we arrived, we had to go buy... [more]

New Backpack and Tripod

It is not very often that I discuss photography gear, but given that I purchased a few new items of gear today, I figured it was worth relating the story. Soon enough, we are heading overseas on a trip to Israel, followed by a small soujorn to Czechia for a few days. As is always... [more]

Altar of the Church of the Loaves and Fishes

This image was the first of only two I captured at the Church of the Loaves and Fishes. The Church of the Loaves and Fishes is located at Tabgha, on the north-western shore of the Sea of Galilee. It is in this area where Jesus performed the miraculous feeding of 5,000 people with a bounty... [more]

Off to Israel (Again) and London Too

We have just booked what will be our third overseas trip in the space of eight months. We are heading back to Israel for a wedding, but we have also decided to spend four or five days in London beforehand. It has been nearly 13 years since I was last in Old London Town, and... [more]
