On the previous post I cheated just a bit.  I was talking about France and posted a couple of photos taken at the home of Dollie Briggs in Newport.

My travels in Europe were in my film days and I still have not gotten around to scanning most of the good slides.  Sorry about that.  But to make it up to you – here are a few more pix from Dollie Brigg’s lovely home in Newport.

Mentioning that we will travel seems to have generated some interest so I thought I would elaborate on some of my own travel experiences. I lived in Europe on two separate occasions. While in grad school at UVA, I spent a term in London attending University College London (I have an M.A.H.) and one summer (still as a student) I lived and worked in France.  That summer I also hitchhiked across the English Channel – before there was a tunnel – during a fisherman’s strike that was jamming up the ferries.

I also love the Highlands of Scotland so much I went five times … and need to go back one of these days with my best friend. Places on my agenda include the South Island of New Zealand and definitely back to Hawaii (went there four times in one year – good year), Venice which comes highly recommended by a friend who just spent a few weeks there.  Of course to Australia to visit that friend and many places in Asia.

Certainly it is a bit easier with digital since I don’t have to wrestle my film past security any more. However, if anyone has a private jet who wants to fly me all of these places … I am not patient with airports – way too many hours twiddling my thumbs now to get anywhere. I used to show up at the airport thirty minutes before I had to be sitting in my seat (and never once missed a flight). Miss those days.

Adam and I are both interested in conducting travel photo workshops abroad. And we are open to suggestions. So suggest away.  Maybe something on a boat (photogenic sail) cruising the Mediterranean?  Putting in at tiny ports and scenic coves?

I just wanted to point out that we are happy to travel!! Whether you want us to cross Fishers Island Sound to the island or cross the Pacific to Tahiti – if it’s a fun adventure – WE ARE THERE!

While we are here in Connecticut – Fishers Island is a short ferry ride away, as is Block Island. Newport is close, Fairfield County an easy drive, New York City a day trip. Don’t let a little water or a short drive deter you from having some really great photography of your special day or event.
