Prepping for The Pop Top Tour
We spent some time with Betty recently to see the progress being made on the van and participate in some of the tear down. I cut the old ratty canvas from 1982 off the pop top, helped Dad while he got the top realigned, and basically watched the real mechanics do their job. When it comes to working on my own vehicle, I am about as boot as they come.
The say Forest City got its name from the dense forest that used to cover the area. The last census, performed in 2010, listed the population as 268. A man by the name of Joe Baldwin founded the town in 1857, before the Missouri river changed course and turned westward. Forest City was a popular shipping center along the Missouri before that, but when the river altered its course it left the town two-and-a-half miles inland. Between 1861 and 1867 this…

II think it’s fitting that my most interesting photo would be one of my daughter. I’ve been with her every single day for the entirety of her life. These are flickr’s top five, but not my personal top five, not even close. I have more than 11,000 images stored on flickr, and I’d guess that about 1,000 of them are public. If views were worth five bucks each and favorites a dollar I’d be doing okay for folding money.
Come and follow my family as we explore the USA. I could use your support. And if the troll rears its ugly head, just ignore it. In solidarity with wandering families everywhere. F*ck the naysayers, because they don’t mean a thing. #VANLIFE
“The concept of time, as it’s commonly understood by normal
people with normal jobs and normal goddamn lives, doesn’t
exist on the road. The nights spread out like the dark,
godforsaken highways that distinguish them, and the days run
together like Thanksgiving dinner smothered in gravy. You
never really know where you are or what time it is, and the outside
world starts to fade away.
― Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star
We’ve been patiently waiting to embark on our tour of the USA in our Vanagon. We saved and scrimped and sacrificed, and finally after giving away or selling most of our belongings we hit the road. When our lease was up, we had to spend a month in Denver getting by without re-signing another one. So we slept where we could, and we found out what stealth camping was really all about…

Street photography is an exercise and experiment on how people react to something they aren’t used to. Each encounter is unique in its own way. It’s about seeing shapes and lines, going out of your comfort zone, finding the beauty in imperfection and capturing spontaneous moments. It is equal parts challenging and exhilarating. It is my favorite genre in the world of photography. It’s about being courageous and a little bit crazy. It’s about human connection. I find my images are a reflection of myself. I look for others like me, other people with slight imperfections, a unique look, a cool t-shirt or hairstyle, an odd juxtaposition or an interesting expression. Street Photography is about capturing the diversity of the human race. And I love it.

Le frontiere, materiali o mentali, di calce e mattoni o simboliche, sono a volte dei campi di battaglia, ma sono anche dei workshop creativi dell'arte del vivere insieme, dei terreni in cui vengono gettati e germogliano (consapevolmente o meno) i semi di forme future di umanità. (Zygmunt Bauman)
