Demolition is complete.  The place looks like a war zone.  Monday they will spray fungicide.  The house has dried out, and it is odor free.  Getting to this stage cost about $10,000.  I don’t have an estimate of insurance recovery yet, and a building permit is at least 4 weeks away.

These are from the first and second day in Amsterdam.  I felt a few had a significant message in the color so that is how they are presented.  It is important not to be locked into any particular format.  Besides, when shooting digital you can have it both ways. My neighbors tell me the street in front of my house in Houston is a river.  One of them is going to check on the place today, but I really can’t do anything about it.

Here are some more photos from my first day in Amsterdam.  I was never that far from the Rijksmuseum as my hotel was nearby and I did not feel like going far after the long flight and 7 hour time change.

These were taken in or near the park behind the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. It was my first day there leaving me very jet lagged.  I helped the guy fix his bike.  The chain had jumped off the sprockets.

Most of us think of Hawaii as a place of lush color, but I found a few shots from my last visit to Maui that would work well in black and white.

In Cabo, the sun is brighter, tacos taste better, tequila is stronger and skirts are shorter.

The arch is literally at the tip of the peninsula of Cabo San Lucas.  It is accessible mainly by boat, but a serious rock climb from the Grand Solmar beach will take one within viewing distance of its back side.  People must share the area with sea lions.  They are cute, but they bite.  It’s so closely associated with Cabo that it appears on tee shirts.  I used my pseudo IR processing to get a slightly different result from the hundreds of tourists who photograph it daily.  While walking through the marina or on the beach boat drivers will offer this trip to you repeatedly for US$10 or $12.  I paid 200 pesos for two people, about US$13.50 plus a tip.  The entire series was photographed from a small rocking boat.
