The city center of Arequipa, Peru is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The city center is composed of baroque buildings derived from white volcanic sillar stone, giving Arequipa the nickname 'Ciudad Blanca' (White City). In addition, the city is surrounded by three impressive volcanoes.

One evening I captured a magical sunset from a very narrow bridge during rush hour with the ethereal El Misti volcano rising in the background.

Thanks guys for all your views, comments and favs!

Happy Travels!

I had already taken some great night shots from around the historical center (Plaza de Armas) and spent one afternoon scouting new locations. While on my way to explore a new neighborhood, I crossed over a bridge, (Puente Grau), and looked back to see this spectacular view. I knew it would make for a great twilight shot so I returned later that day with my tripod. The Rio Chili and the amazing sunset were an added benefit!

Thanks guys for all your views, comments and favs!

I photographed a colorful street parade at the Plaza de Armas in the colonial city of Arequipa, Peru.

To get the emotion of a place sometimes you have to get right into the action. I jumped right into the middle of the parade to capture this portrait. Apparently, the ladies love being photographed by a Canon photographer!

The first week of December I was in Lima, Peru and now here we are at the end of the month on New Year's Eve with 2019 right around the corner.

It was a great year of travel, as I started the year house sitting for my sister in Arizona for a month. I got to photograph in some new places and the highlight was photographing the wild horses at the Salt Creek River.

In the spring, I returned to the North Central Highlands of Mexico to my favorite cities of San Miguel del Allende and Guanajuato. In addition, I explored for the first time the colonial cities of Querétaro and Zacatecas.

In the summer, after a long hiatus, I returned to Europe to enjoy wine, gelato and the enormous crowds in Italy. I did the Caesar shuffle in Rome, ate too much gelato in Florence, enjoyed the best pizza in the world in Naples and motorbiked the scenic, but dangerous Amalfi Coast and lived to “Facebook” about it!

In the fall/winter, I once again indulged my wanderlust by heading to South America to the beautiful country of Peru. I ate ceviche, drank Pisco Sours and took many wonderful photographs.

This is a photograph I made of the Pacific Ocean from the upscale Miraflores District in Lima, Peru. It reminded me a lot of La Jolla, California with the cliffs overlooking the ocean.

May you have a blessed New Year and may 2019 bring much love and joy to you and your family.
