Pedrogao Pequeno in Portugal is surrounded by beautiful natural scenery and cozy houses. Walking over amazing Roman trails you find houses such as this one.

This is another odd picture from Seattle. It is the Market Theater Gum Wall, in Post Alley, under Pike Place. This is a brick alleyway wall covered in used chewing gum and scraps of artwork. Parts of the wall are covered several inches thick, 15 feet high for 50 feet.

I didn't know whether to be disgusted or awed.

I saw this interesting looking chimney at the Seattle waterfront last week. I'm not sure what it is used for, but it has a "steampunk" look.

This open gallery is part of the San José Mission Church near San Antonio. It's been photographed a million times, so I thought I'd try something different with my own HDR take on it.

Known as the "Queen of the Missions", this is the largest of the missions and was almost fully restored to its original design in the 1930s.

Santa Fe is full of color. Everywhere you look you see earth-colored adobe against the blue sky, a perfect contrast.

This is the Santa Fe Museum of Art, a modern building made to look like an older adobe construction. Very interesting lines and shapes.

This could be anywhere in Texas. This one happens to be in Galveston, almost on the beach. It is weird to be relaxing on the beach looking at the ocean, and see this pump tirelessly working.

While visiting Coney Island I just had to stop and try one of the original Nathan's hotdogs. They were as good as they get.
