Here are some of my favorites images from a recent trip to California last week. It's always great to come back and visit some of the spots I used to frequent growing up.

Storm King Art Center, a picturesque 500 acre outdoor sculpture park, is one of my favorites places to visit and is only a short drive north of NYC. I highly recommend stopping by The Shops at Jones Farm for some goodies either before or after!

One of the final images I captured on my beloved Canon 5D mark II, on assignment in Antarctica

I did it. I sold my first DSLR camera, the Canon 5D mark II, which changed the course of my life. I didn’t realize how emotionally attached I’d become to this camera. I’m sure some of you can relate.

My trusty 5DII traveled with me to all seven continents, from Africa to Antarctica, and never ever let me down. It helped me forge a new path, realize my dream of doing what I love for a living (after I quit my last and only full time job 7 years ago), and led me to places that I only dreamed of such as Antarctica.

This is where it all began for me and I’m happy to pass the torch onto the next person/generation of photographers. Thanks to photographers Miah Klein and Matthew Morgan who helped guide me after I decided to jump in and purchase this camera 8 years ago. Long live the 5D mark II!

 Contemplating these words today:  

 “Try not to resist the changes that come your way. Instead let life live through you. And do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?”
