An elephant seal’s year is divided into four cycles: two on land, and two in the ocean. They haul out on land for the breeding season, which lasts from late August through early November, and for the molting season from mid-December through March. During their terrestrial phase, elephant seals fast and spend most of their time sleeping to conserve vital energy reserves. Motionless giants, they resemble wet oval rocks strewn along the beach and blend perfectly into the landscape. Elephant seals are endowed with a generous coat of greasy blurber. The wrapping of fat insulates them from the cold antartic currents, but is also a larder for lean times and provides vital energy for the long fasts during the molting and breeding seasons - Peninsula Valdes, Argentina

I’ve been living in and traveling to the USA for decades… And, the more I travel in the US the more I realize just how much of it there is to see. I still haven't been to Yellowstone or Yosemite or some of the smaller states. I have only seen a tiny slice of Texas, and have a huge amount of the Midwest left to explore. And then there are the places I always want to go back to — places like the Bay Area, Chicago and New England. Even though I have SO MUCH more to see, here are some of the highlights from my US travel.
"Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with how you see them."
I just like to take pictures, I just push the button. I never worked in the darkroom, I never studied photography or journalism; I’m just a passionate photographer.
