I learned to drive with a manual transmission on a used 1960 Vauxhall and still enjoy a “stick shift” when driving in Europe. So it was, with our white Fiat hatchback rental. We packed our bags, loaded them in the trunk, and headed northeast out of Lisbon, towards the Douro River Valley. I “popped the clutch” a few times with lurches and stalls, but once I settled into the Fiat’s rhythm of gears, it was (mostly) smooth sailing on the good road
I'm happiest on the road someplace I’ve never been. I try to capture in my images the grandeur and intimate moments of places I visit.
With a storyteller’s insight and respect, I observe both everyday and extraordinary stories from my experiences. My curiosity about each place’s history helps me better understand its culture.
Snapshots and anecdotes offer quick observations from life on the road, in the garden, and at home.
