Upload & Sell: On
Just a quick post to let you know what I've been up to lately. I've been in LA for 2 years now but will soon be moving to SF for my wife's job (Airbnb). The geography change will be most welcome after my time in the sprawling, urban abyss. Any advice on shooting in the Bay Area is most welcome (PM probably best though)!
Anyway, I resigned my USC research position a month ago in anticipation of our move. My wife's job is going to afford me the chance to take some time off and pursue some other projects, most notable finishing my book about the big bike trip from 2014. I have also found myself doing a lot of travel writing of late, and I expect this to continue moving forward. I have just returned from press/promotion trips to Spain and Belize/Guatemala, and I will be doing quite a bit of writing about these adventures on my birding and bird photography blog - The Speckled Hatchback (http://thespeckledhatchback.blogspot.com) - in the next few weeks. As I know folks on this board like birding, photographing, and travel, I figured I would share this with you as you might use some of it in your future travels. The blog is not for profit but is rather a means for me to communicate with the birding community. If I'm breaking any board rules here, please let me know.
Here a just a few shots from theses various trip, plus one from here in LA.
Thanks for stopping by!
