Looking for something to take back home with you? This is the best place to find it. You can fi...

A visit to Houston is not complete without a stroll (or bike ride) along the Buffalo Bayou. The park is currently undergoing a major rejuvenation project, with art becoming one of its primary features.

I remember the first time I saw the art cars parading down Allen Parkway. I had never seen anything like it. They were so unique and fascinating, right up to the finest detail. With more art cars than any other city, Houston is often referred to as the 'Art Car Capit...

Yesterday I spent a few hours up at the Monserrate Sanctuary overlooking Bogotá, and although I had visited many times before, this time was special. Armed with my 300mm telefoto and new 100mm macro lens, I was on the hunt for birds. Monserrate might just be one of th...
