Another photo from China.  A close up of a game of Mahjong.  I would visit this group of retirees every day.  They could never understand why I didn't accept the cigarettes that they offered. Loved the vibrant colors on the blanket they played on.

Even in the Chinese culture,  food equals love.  Making dumplings is a huge process.  Several hundred are made and devoured.  What is your favorite food you have eaten during your travels?

Even in the winter,  Minnesota is beautiful.  For those of you from warm climates this is not infrared photography.  It is hoar frost and it is magical. .

Another shot from Cuba.  Walking the streets of Havana you find many interesting people.  These two were great. I kept shooting until they ignored me.  Don't be afraid to stay and work the scene.

Cuba was such an amazing trip.  I have never wanted to go back to a country so bad as soon as I got home. Here is a portrait of a tobacco farmer. What countries make you want to go back to them?

Took a little hike today to work the new knee and give the soul a little restoration as well.  We need to be outdoors.  It calms. it gives,  it restores. .

Should I really be listening to this while picking my child up at church?

Curiosity,  the world needs a bit more of it. On a recent hike my son got up close with some milk weed. Examining it, feeling the smooth silky texture.  Encourage curiosity in all students. .

A monk lights additional candles at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem,  Israel.  This is the site many believe that Christ was crucified and buried.  Definitely an intense place. .

I made this photograph in Zibo, China.  My wife's hometown.  There are so many things that scream China in this photo.  Red is their national color.  The bikes at the bottom are ubiquitous in China.  Obviously the written word on the banners.  I was hoping it said something wicked cool. Turns out it was just advertising a grand opening of a store.  Still one of my favorites from China. .

A beautiful woman I photographed in Havana,  Cuba.  She was selling flowers.  Of course I bought some. Using my rusty high school Spanish skills,  we had a little conversation. .

On my way to Henry Rollins.  The man, the myth, the legend.

So my son lost the spinner for Twister. This is what creativity and problem solving look like. He made his own spinner that worked. The world needs problem solvers.
