In the spring of 2012 I went to Arizona with my family.  We drove back through Tucson and then through Texas.  While in Tucson we stopped at the San Xavier del Bac Church, an old Catholic church built in the 1600s. I got a great shot of a man meditating in the church.

Travelographer Extraordinaire. I Enjoy the Ride by traveling and seeing the world around me. We are so busy speeding down the freeways of life that we miss out on the back roads and all the wonderful little stories that every place offers. So, I try to take the less beaten paths and see the real world. I have visited all 50 United States and many provinces in Canada, nearly all prefectures in Japan as well as Seaul, Korea, Shanghai and Suzhou, China and Cenu, Philippines. Also been to Mexico. Father of five, grandfather of 10 and happily married to my sweetheart for nearly 38 years. Fluent in Japanese. Happy and well traveled. See details at http://www.sumoflam.biz/SumoflamBio.htm

One thought on “People Shots from My Travels – Part 1 (Canada and US)”

  1. Interesting people. The diversity of society is captured very well in your photos. Many of them remind me of how thankful I am to be alive, thankful to have food and a home and others make me appreciate their talents and differences in culture. The look on that man’s face meditating makes me want to know his peace. I have to admit I really appreciated seeing that someone has bigger thighs than me. I want to be a travelographer like my big brother when I grow up.
