Some people close up shop and go fishing. Others, like myself, need more stimulation than baiting a hook and waiting for a fish to bite. On Father's Day, June 15, 2014 my family and I will be off on an epic global adventure that takes us to 22 countries in just under 12 months. Our plan is to return June 1, 2015. In between our departure and return, amazing things are bound to happen. I welcome all of you who have been so encouraging and followed my photography to visit our family travel blog at GordonFamilyRTW and become our virtual fellow-travelers as we travel through Europe, Southern Africa, Southeast Asia, Oceania, South America and finally, Central America.
During the trip, I'll be focusing on taking photos with my camera rather than editing the photographs I do take. In fact, I'm not even taking a laptop with me in an effort to both travel light and devote myself to picture making rather than image editing. I will have an iPad with me to enable me to upload selected images to illustrate our travel blog. But for the most part, post-processing of images on a computer will wait until I return. At that point, I'm sure I'll be spending most of my days at the computer working on images from the trip preparing to make them available for purchase on this Web Gallery. By all means, enjoy our travel blog! Once you visit it, you can subscribe to an RSS feed to be alerted to any new blog posts.
I hope you have a wonderful year ahead. Meanwhile, I leave you with an image from a brief visit in May to Eagle Island State Park near Boise, Idaho. These dilapidated structures from an abandoned dairy provided a nice distraction during the long drive from Boise to my Central Oregon home.
