Doorways & Clichés – Italy Travel Photography (Part 2)
Read more

Recently we established that I went to Italy, where I had some success with street photography. Another thing you find walking around Italian streets are doors. Miraculous, tiny, odd, varied, and beautiful doors. So I ended up photographing a lot of doors, doorways, alleys, entries, and things near them. Today they make up part 2 of my Italy travel photo series. And yes, it’s...

I always wanted to be good at street photography, but in college the limitations of my own fear and costly 35mm film kept me from really embracing it. Then somewhere around 2004 when I got my first digital SLR with no limitations of film I discovered it was more my fear than cost holding me back. Over the years I’ve dabbled in the art form,...

My family doesn’t mess around when it comes to reunions. Nearly 200 Rowe descendants gathered in Fredericksburg, VA over the July 4th weekend for a historically and socially significant weekend. I watched my 93 year old Grandfather light up at the faces of his cousins who greeted him by saying “George Rowe! I thought you were buried.”; learned a great deal about my famous relatives, including...

While in Tokyo, I received a fortune. It was a “bad” fortune. “Although you are in a hurry, there will be no boat to cross the river. If you dare to sail, the boat will be swallowed by high waves. You can’t go ahead and you should go back to your homeland. When you get home, you will not meet any crisis and your...

Art Imitates Life

In Yen Duc, Vietnam we had “backstage passes” to check out the water puppet theater–one of the most celebrated artistic traditions dating back to the 11th century. It’s charming and surprisingly impressive. We sat on miniature stools cramped among an array of puppets and watched the action unfold before us. Nine people in waders maneuvered the puppets in perfect time to the music, while...

Yen Duc is a small village between Hanoi and Halong Bay. In just over 24 hours our guide, Thuy, showed us more wonderful things that words can describe. So (of course) I offer you too many photos...

tree cuts you. This is Aspen, but my brother and I share a weird sense of humor involving non sequitur jokes. We were at the bar making jokes when I realized I had some trees to show here.  ...

That one place.

Sep 16, 2015 by

You know that one place. It’s the one where you left some integral part of yourself, because it was so intrinsically tied to that location, at that time, in those moments. It’s a place you go back to and mutter about how things have changed, while marveling at the bits that have remained. Pristine… not just in your memory. It’s a place where your...

If I were a castle, I’d protect you from the world’s harms. If I were a boat, I’d take you to sea and rock you to sleep on the waves. If I were a bird, I’d soar as high as your dreams. But I am...
