Travel Photo Essays

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he world is one damn beautiful place isn’t it? As much as I am a fan of stringing together words to form imagery of the people I meet, places I go, or things I see — sometimes that just doesn’t cut it.

Sometimes Mother Nature feels the need to flaunt herself like some ravishing narcissistic pin-up, or a city shocks and awes with jaw-dropping architecture or a fascinating historical beauty lost to time. So a full-page spread is in order.

Here you will find retina rupturing and cortex tantalizing photo essays of destinations I’ve traveled to for your gawking pleasure.
