Travel Photography: People of Sanski Most, Bosnia

Here are some pictures of people I saw and met in Sanski Most, a town in northwest Bosnia and Herzegovina. It's friendly and lively and full of beauty and good humor mixed with grief and lingering frustration from the recent war. Beautiful and complicated, full of photojournalistic fodder. I hope to go back someday. I'm jealous of my host, who works as sort of a cultural ambassador there. I recently contributed photos for him to use in a website promoting tourism and cultural opportunities in the region. It seemed like a good excuse to share some of them here, all shot during my visit in August.

Greasewood Flat, Scottsdale, Arizona

Some images from Greasewood Flat and Reata Pass, a bar and restaurant nestled in an old stagecoach stop in Scottsdale, Arizona. It's a lovely local gem with no frills-- just great atmosphere, live music, good beers and spicy chili. We hear the place is for sale, but I hope it ain't so.

Summer Nights

"Will you please pull over on this two-lane rural highway in Croatia so I can take a picture of some people making full-body shadow puppets on the side of a church?"

"And will you hang out just a minute longer while I also photograph this woman selling fruit by the side of the road?"

Everyone should have friends and travel companions who are as supportive and accommodating as mine from last summer. Thanks again, ladies.
