Welcome to my photo web site. Here's a chronological index of the different photo collections:
Ixtapa February 2012 - Just one page and the photos are not all that interesting, if I say so myself. But there are two short funny videos, so check it out!
Puerto Vallarta January 2012. With Nancy. Only two pages as I was just here last month.
Puerto Vallarta December 2011 with Damon and Patti. I return to Villa Del Palmar.
Uncommon Grounds in Puerto Vallarta: I like this place enough to give it it's own section.
Cancun 11/12/11 - Another solo trip that went pretty well.
Chicago 9/23/11 - I can't figure out why I haven't spent more time in this great city.
Chicago Art Institute - Two pages of fine art.
Nuevo Vallarta 4/23/11 - My first Mexico trip with my old friend Lisa Kugler. Probably too many shots of the hotel grounds, but I limited it to one sunset, one towel creature, and I have no egrets. So here's what I did: There are three pages devoted to the incredible grounds at this 4-hotel complex. But after you've cleared the second page, you may feel you've seen enough. At the bottom of the second page there's a link to skip a page.
Cancun 2/26/11 - Just a couple pages. Nothing too spectacular.
Cancun 1/19/11 - Tons of Aquarium videos during my first and last trip with Mary L.
Cancun 12/12/10 - Empty beaches, a crowded Carlos 'n Charlie's; and the weirdest shower door I've ever seen.
Puerto Vallarta 11/13/10 - Do you ever see women washing their clothes in the mighty Mississippi? Didn't think so. The finale is my favorite sunset shot yet.

Mazatlan 3/16/09 - High-res photos of pulmonia, molcajete, and dead chunks of animals at the very end. Video added 8/11.
