Amsterdam’s Red Light District likes to party hard most of the way through the night, which means that you have the area pretty much to yourself if you get up early enough in the morning.
A detail shot of the exterior of the Frank Gehry-designed Experience Music Project (EMP) building in Seattle, taken back in 2006.
Portland has no shortage of fantastic bridges to take photos of, from the industrial (and unique) Steel Bridge, to this one: the graceful arch of the Fremont Bridge soaring high above the Willamette River.
Without a doubt, the Painted Hills in Central Oregon is one of my absolute favourite places to visit and explore photographically. I’ve been back multiple times: each time, the light and the way it interacts with the ancient folds of the hillside has been completely different.
Colourful bikes against a blue wall outside a bicycle tour business in Amsterdam. The bright, anodised colours are definitely what drew me to take this photo in the first place, and I framed my shot nice and tight to crop out any extraneous detail, keeping only the repeating patterns of the bike frames.
On a flight out of Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport back in 2009, I was in a window seat facing towards the sun – a challenge for good photography, but very rewarding when things go right. Soon after take off, the plane banked slightly, and I could snap this photo of the long, narrow fields below.
