I am sorry for the lack of new shots lately. A combination of lack of time and a lack of shots that I felt motivated to work on has had me sharing a bunch of older stuff (on Instagram at least). I've got a new trip approaching soon however so I wanted to get through the [...]

I think my favorite thing about photographing the world showcase is that you really can come away with a ton of different and unique looking [...]
