Good things trucks deliver to America; it’s a crazy stat that everything you have at one time in the delivery chain was transported by a truck! It may enter the country by plane, boat, or train, but it still lands on a truck in the process, and even more crazy their are millions of drivers and they still need more, in fact there is more loads that drivers, that’s amazing to me. I took this picture because of the relationship between the two big rigs and how the tanker is carried through the mirror, which was a hard image to capture at 65mph going down the interstate. I admire people who can thrive in this type of work environment and still maintain a balanced home life even though they are on the road away from home for weeks at a time. If these big wheels quit rolling so does the US economy, they need each other. So, my trucker friends keep on trucking!
The Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge is a double-decker bridge across the Yangtze River and its upper deck is part of the China National Highway 104, the lower deck is the railway passage. This bridge is massive and impressive. This day it was overcast and light rain the entire day, but it was still worth the visit. This bridge is also one of the premier destinations for suicide which is not part of any tour group I’m sure. Nanjing is a very busy and it’s an important city commerce hub, but the real treat of Nanjing is the people and old world charm of this historical city.

Whenever I’m at the tipping point I put myself in a cruise frame of mind, I take a couple of deep breaths and I can feel the ocean and sun wash over me. It’s like experiencing a rebirth of sorts, it’s type of mental getaway from the ordinary and I can taste my favorite Caribbean umbrella drink with Margaretville is playing in the background of my mind. I’m literally transported to my favorite unpopulated port of call, I’m home and my soul is at rest once again. As my mind is replaying the photographs, snap shots, the flash cards of my life a smile slowly appears, I can smell the suntan oil …Then suddenly just a fast I’m snapped back to reality with the familiar sounds of take out the trash, check the mail, Dad listen and what’s for dinner! As much as I love my ocean adventures, my private life as a pirate, I love my real life just as much, I could imagine not being a Dad a family man, not being needed even if it’s just being asked to listen for a moment, even if it’s to run to the store for milk, being a Father is truly the adventure that is more rewarding and more exciting than any exotic tropical port of call, there is plenty of time to visit these places later in life, for now I’m needed at home sweet home 🙂

Rush Hour in Tamsui District, Taiwan. This was taken in the Dunshui district, now known as the Tamsui district, or 45 mins north of Taipei, Taiwan. The district is home to three universities and has a large role in Taiwanese culture, with a great night market. I shot this right when I got off the train, I was walking and noticed how much traffic there was, but how many motor bikes and scooters there were, amazing! I love the depth of the image, how you can see so many people all at the same light waiting, but all in such different ways. This is why I love candid people images, I hope you like this as much as I do. I received the judges choice award from the S4C (Southern California Council of Camera Clubs) in the Travel/ Transportation division.
