Travel Photo Albums

Below are photo albums from my various trips in recent years. If you would like to view an album, click on the album name. For almost all albums, I have a few sub-albums. For each sub-album, only selected photographs will be shown by default. However, look for a link that says Show All Photographs to see all photos for the selected sub-album.

Milan

Having been driven out of New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina, I've found my way to Milan and made it my home. In this album you'll find photos of my apartment, as well as some tourist sites.

New Orleans

Having lived in New Orleans most of my life, and since my daughter and family are there, I visit New Orleans once every three months. These are photos from some of those trips, as well as from the hurricane when I lived there.

Sicily

Living in Italy and having family in Sicily, I've begun visiting Sicily finally. This album contains photos from my first trip to Sicily. Hopefully, I will make many more trips there and will explore the island.

Italy

Although I have often been in Milan since October 2005, I haven’t visited very many other places in Italy—not enough as I should have. It seems very common to overlook that which is close to us. However, I have been trying to get myself to do much more sightseeing lately. In recent months, I have mostly hit cities in the north since they're closest to Milan. There’s plenty to see in Lombardia and neighboring regions. These are the albums from those outings.

Since I have so many photographs taken within Milan, those are in a separate album group just on Milan. Since Sicily is where my family lives, visits there are special and therefore I put photos from those trips in a separate album just for Sicily.

Europe

These photo albums include photographs from my first trips to Europe (i.e., Prague, Berlin, and Amsterdam), and they include more extensive photos from trips I made while living in Europe. As you look at these, you may notice a lower quality to older photos. They were taken when I had a point-and-shoot digital camera.

United States

This is a new grand parent album that I'm moving all of my other U.S. albums and sub-albums into.

Photograph Search

Enter topics on which to search:

Enter tags on which to search photographs. When giving multiple terms that you want to match all, separate the words with ‘and’.

I’m still improving this search feature and adding more tags. For now, use singular versions of terms.

The search also accepts Italian terms.

New Albums

Boston

While in the Boston area related to work, I met up with my friend Coy Bassich and his new wife, MIla. They drove in from Connecticut. We spent the day together looking around the historic area and at the waterfront. We had dinner in the North End at an Italian restaurant.

Laura Plantation

The Laura Plantation is located outside New Orleans, up the Mississippi River on its west bank. It's a creole plantation in that it was designed and used by creoles, people who were among the original colonists of Louisiana. I've been there a few times.

Travel Articles

Milan Life

If you're thinking of moving to central Milan, but are wondering what there is to do here, there's plenty to do within walking distance of the Duomo. This living abroad/travel piece lists some of things you can do around the city center and provides links to many photographs of the scenes described.

Malpensa Train

If you're arriving in Milan at the Malpensa Airport, you're actually about thirty-five miles northwest of Milan. You can rent a car or take a taxi into the city, but both are expensive—a taxi would cost about eighty-five Euros (i.e., $125). A cheaper method is to use the public transportation. You can take the train or a bus. This article describes how to take the train. If you want to take the bus—which I don't prefer—see the article about the Malpensa bus.
