I come from a family with collections -- salt and pepper shakers, arrowheads, thimbles, African violets, clocks, souvenir silver spoons. I myself collect demitasse sets (little cups and saucers) and kitschy little buildings, the type sold in tourist centers. I have more than 80 of them. So I like stuff. And when I'm wandering around a city, I photograph stuff.
Next April we are going back to Spain -- this time to the Basque country. Fresco Tours has arranged a fantastic trip -- Christine and I will be leading the photo tour, which will lead us through scenery both urban and seaside, medieval and modern, and featuring really good food and wine.
