North Shore Connector

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

About three years ago, AECOM sent me to Pittsburgh in the dead of winter to photograph the almost-completed North Shore Connector subway project. Watching the three iron workers put together the ventillator system in riduculously cramped areas was really amazing. With math and logic they moved thèse huge and bulky métal cabinets around with almost zéro room to spare. The fans themselves were beautiful designs, as you can see for yourself.



San Simeon, California

This section is personal in nature, an annual trip my lovely wife and I make to the Central Coast of California, near San Simeon. In January, the beaches are chockablock with Elephant Seals – mating, fighting, giving birth –  which is quite a show. And that part of California is relentlessly beautiful. Finally, the best part: not a lot of people!
