Rooms with a View


The hotel room window has become for me a place of photographic opportunity. After rolling my luggage into my room, I open the drapes to see just what I might see. Almost always I am surprised, and often I am delighted.

The night lights of Peoria, IL, invited me to experiment with intentional camera movement.


The beginning of a rainy day in the street below my window in Florence, Italy, called me to practice the photographer’s discipline of waiting for just.. the…right…moment.


Downtown Dallas was all about lines, patterns, and abstract design in the buildings that surrounded the hotel.




And the chairs on the neighboring rooftop patio seen from my window in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, evoked my curiosity.


Yes, even the views from hotel rooms can with the application of a little imagination and technical experimentation become a photographer’s playground.
