Travel Photos

2009 Photos from my iPhone

I have this yearly habit from all of my years working as a journalist of putting together a end of year wrap-up. So this has been a busy year for me with a lot of poltics, travel, wedding photography and gardening.

Please visit my end of year gallery at All of these photos were taken with my iphone.

Here are three of my favorites:

Waiting for Obama’s Train in DE:

My visit to Central Nebraska

I took a detour on my way to CES to visit my parents in Central Nebraska this month. As I get older I am doing one of the great photographer tricks of re-visiting previous locations to update the images.

Hordville, NE is a very small town about 30 miles from my hometown of Grand Island, NE. I did a documentary project on Hordville while I was in college that resulted in one of my portfolio images of this grain elevator (shot on Kodachrome).

So 25 years later I came back and not much has changed in Hordville. There are more photos located at

The photo below is from the Hordville post office and reflects the imact of Walker Evans on my documentary style of photography.
