A trip down memory lane to Stonehenge

My daughter and I watched this Vox video about Stonehenge over lunch today, and it reminded me of my visit to the UK and Ireland in April 2004:

I found my photos from way back then (in full 640 x 480 resolution), and was able to impress my daughter by showing her my photos of some of the places we saw in the video. I thought I’d dig out my photos, and reminisce a little …

I haven’t really felt a strong desire to visit Myanmar but I would love to go on one of those balloon rides over the temples (I think the region is called Bagan).

New Zealand is definitely on my travel wishlist. After the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies, how can any self-respecting photographer not want to go visit? If you need any more persuasion, spend some time looking at Trey Ratcliff’s photos.

I’ve been fascinated by Ireland for what must be decades. I finally had a chance to tour part of Ireland back in 2004 with my friend Jonathan and I loved being there. I’d love to go back there with my family and shoot far too many photos of that incredible country. The highlight of my Ireland trip was definitely our time in Killarney. It was beautiful.

A young me in Ireland a decade ago

In Killarney, Ireland way back in 2004

I just came across this old photo of me on a trip to Ireland with my friend Jonathan. This is me a decade ago. I really look young then!
