One Man's Hell, Another (Wo)man's Heaven - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

We human are complex.  Anything that involves judgment can be subjective.  At the small geothermal area of Seltun in Iceland, Genevieve, a lady I only got to know on this trip, said "you're going to love it".  Oh, how she knew me so well!  And did she know it was only the beginning of many exciting opportunities, only to more extent, one after another, waiting to be uncovered?

At the Gunnuhver (meaning "Gunner's Hot Spring") geothermal site where you could lose your shoes over the hot surface of the soil, earth is covered by colors that you don't normally associate with this planet, and menace-looking steam engulfs you with a howling sound, I was ecstatic.      

Is Gunner having enough fun?

Fishing Village on Pellestrina Island of Venice - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

Florence (Firenze) was not the only city where we craved to get out for air.  Venice is unfortunately another city that's suffered from too many tourists.  Lucky for us, in its fishing village on the Pellestrina Island, we found peace.  Over there, we saw the genuine life that we seek wherever we travel.

Before sun-down, people all come out.  What better view is there to beat the view of the setting sun on the lagoon right out the front door?  It must be a privilege to just pull a chair in order to enjoy such a view.  

But, do they know an even better view follows after they've all gone indoors when it gets dark?  Good things happen to those that wait.  Just saying... :-)

How Burano, Italy was Uncliched - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

I've longed to visit Burano, the small island close to Venice, before I knew photography.  In this corner of the world, color palettes seem to have met their matches.

When it's easy to splash colors inadvertently, especially for the chroma-loving creature like moi, I decided to get out of my mold.  Yes, for the new year and new spring, this is what I did to "uncliche" the often over-done.  What element do you recognize that's beyond color(s)? 

I hope you agree that my Assistante sure out-did his performance in Florence (Firenze), Italy.
