I experienced my first sandstorm today. It was visually amazing as everything started to disappear into a haze. I’m sure it wasn’t even a bad one. This is across from the Old Souq (market). #dubai #souk #oldsouk #sandstorm #uae #nomad #travel #travelphotography #iphoneonly (at Bur Dubai - Dubai)

The Bhurj Khalifa. Tallest building in the world. It was so hot while taking this photo (100f) I couldn’t really think straight. After my 10 minute walk, my shirt was drenched in sweat haha. #dubai #eae #bhurjkhalifa #architecture #skyscrapers #travel #travelphotography #middleeast  (at Bhurj Khalifa - Dubai)

After flying to Recife Friday morning, I flew back to Rio that same night and jumped on a red-eye flight to Dubai where I’ll be on assignment for a few days.  I have a love for the architecture of mosques and there are many here. This beautiful mosque, lit up at sunset, is next to Jumeirah Beach. #dubai #uae #mosque #masjid #islam #architecture #travel #travelphotography #middleeast (at Jumeirah Beach)

Friday I flew to Recife to photograph the site of the first Synagogue in the Western Hemisphere. It was in use by Spanish & Portuguese Jews from 1636-1654 in Dutch owned Brazil.  Seen here on the right is the reconstructed building in yellow, located on Jew Street. When the Portuguese took over Northern Brazil in 1654, the Jews fled to Suriname, Curaçao, and New Amsterdam (now New York City). #brasil #brazil #recife #synagogue #history #travel #travelphotography

I’m sure you’ve seen many views of the Favelas in Rio from the outside. This is a view inside the Maré favela which has armed military men stationed and patrolling throughout. #favela #riodejaneiro #rio #brasil #brazil #mare

Thursday I met up with a few talented photographers from a collective based in the Maré Favela. This is the view from their home. #favela #riodejaneiro #rio #mare #brasil #brazil

Last night’s Sunset over a military area in the small fishing town of Guaratiba at the city limits of Rio de Janeiro. I wish the iPhone could show the complete orange sun the way it looked to my eye. So breathtaking. This was followed by an amazing and huge dinner of locally caught seafood on the roof of a fisherman’s house that is now a restaurant. #blessed #rio #riodejaneiro #brasil #brazil #sunset #iphoneonly #travel #travelphotography

I love that you can be in the city limits of Rio and also be on a long empty serene white sand beach with untouched landscape behind you. Winter in Brazil, no complaints. (Bring your wetsuit though).

Good morning! Sometimes It’s hard to do my morning meditation and gratitude while traveling. But today I got back on it after a week, and I feel so GREAT! Ready for today’s adventure to Barra in Rio. #brasil #brazil #rio #barra #christtheredeemer #latergram #travel #travelphotography  (at Cristo Redentor - Christ the Redeemer)

My current situation at Bar do Gomes, Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro. Feels so much like Trinidad in this amazing neighborhood of Rio. Reminds me of the good old days living in St. James Port of Spain in 1999. #rio #riodejaneiro #brasil #brazil #trinidad #travel #travelphotography #bar  (at Armazém São Thiago)

The best part of visiting Christ the Redeemer statue, is all the people posing as Christ! 😊👍🙏 I’ve really grown to love photographing people taking a #selfie at the various world famous sites I’ve visited. (Yes, I’m taking a selfie too haha). #brasil #brazil #rio #riodejaneiro #christ #christtheredeemer #travel #travelphotography  (at Cristo Redentor - Christ the Redeemer)
