I got a chance recently to exercise that natural curiosity in Spain. The history of the country alone is overwhelming especially for a country boy growing up in small towns.

The heat and distance combined made running around on foot pretty unattractive plus we got on and off as we wished. I found out pretty quick that convenience didn’t always jive well with making photos. Being high up in the bus and constantly on the move made it challenging. Being inside the bus was worse since I shot through the windows……..
