Vacations for me are rarely relaxing, especially when going somewhere new. I need to consume a place. At first I'm overwhelmed: Can I understand this, capture it, and bring it home? OK, calm down. Get the maps, guides, books, postcards. Size up the area, the options, the time. Then stop. Feel, observe, and absorb every sight, sound, smell, attitude. Take pictures of everything that inspires. Then take time. Be there, be there.

Travel guides these are not. But here are some impressions of places I've been.
