I enjoy travel – let’s face it, who doesn’t?  But much as I like a big scenic landscape, I’m as often drawn to the details of a place as I am to the big picture.  I remember the first time I saw the Sydney Opera House, and marvelled at the tiling – having only seen images of the whole thing, I had no idea the surface of it wasn’t completely smooth.

So when I photograph while travelling, it’s as likely to be the small things – a trail marker sign, the numbers on a fishing boat, the way paint peels – that attract me, as it is to be the grand vistas or great buildings.  I admire those, certainly; but I stay for the details.
