First, You Must Eat with your Eyes

“Primeiro você deve comer com os olhos” Years ago, I was out to dinner with my Brazilian friend, starving, fork in hand and about to dive into my just-delivered, fancy restaurant dish.

Bozeman Cyclocross and Fall Features

Bozeman Cyclocross and Fall Features

I have always been jealous of my photographer buddies in Portland, Oregon who get to photograph the muddy, up-and-coming sport of cyclocross.
