Speaking of Turkey, and Being Thankful...

Here are some images from a long day of hiking and adventuring with new and old friends in Cappadocia, Turkey, last summer. It was probably the best day of my life.

Giving Thanks with Local, Kosher, and Ethically-raised Turkeys

I shot this story around this time last year. It's about a group of Jews in Boston who wanted local, Kosher meat for their Thanksgiving celebrations. They spent a day on a farm, where they watched the ritual slaughter and helped to de-feather the turkeys by hand. For more details, see the captions with the images. They were a lovely, caring, and socially-aware group of people. I am thankful to have had the opportunity to spend a day with them.

Warning: Some images in the slideshow are somewhat graphic, and not for the faint-of-heart.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you-- local and non-local, Kosher and non-Kosher, turkey-eaters and non-turkey-eaters.

Lake Bled, Slovenia

It's a cloudy election day here in North Florida. Here are some completely unrelated pictures from a beautiful swim spot in Slovenia. I shot them back in July, but if you haven't seen them, they're new to you!

Ljubljana: Parks, Canals, and Streets

Here are a few snaps from Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, shot back in July.

That's Tivoli Park at the top, a really gorgeous public space.
Next is the walking path leading to the park.
Third is the hands of my longtime friend and superstar hostess Orlena holding a rose in Tivoli's botanical garden.
Fourth was a cheap shot of a tourist from our canal boat tour.
Last you see some good old English-language graffiti on a billboard.
