This is just an iPhone shot.  Here is the link to enjoy some more images I created on a trek from Portland, Oregon to Seattle, Washington via the Pacific coast and Olympia National Park:

Michigan’s Upper Peninsula

In July 2014, my family traveled 1,264 miles exploring Michigan’s U.P.

Here are a few photos:


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”  – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I created this image of his memorial in Washington DC in July 2011

Lincoln Memorial

This iconic landmark was built in tribute to President Abraham Lincoln, who fought to preserve our nation during the Civil War, from 1861-1865.  The memorial sits on the National Mall in Washington DC and has been the site of many famous speeches and events since its dedication in 1922… most notably Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s “I Have A Dream” speech in 1963.  It was modeled in the style of a Greek temple; its 36 columns symbolize the states of the Union at Lincoln’s death.  Even without its annual 5 million visitors, the Lincoln Memorial is a familiar site as it is pictured on the US penny and the back of the US five dollar bill.  But nothing beats sitting by its reflective pool and taking in the memorial’s size and beauty on a quiet morning.
