The Jim Fisher 2005 Whirl Tour - Los Cabos

We took a little trip to the Baja with some friends who were looking at property. What a beautiful place but don't go in the summer cause it's nasty hot.

Looking for property in the Baja? It's raw, wild, hot in the summer, warm in the winter and beautiful all the time.

The sunsets in Los Cabos are stunning.

These mariachi band figures are made from wood, straw and metal.

The locals in the Baja have fun little carnivals in their towns. This looks like a smashing good time in the Dodge-em.

Grip 'n' Grins Again

This is a fun moment. My friend Ellis Yan of TCP gets to meet Mayor Jane Campbell of Cleveland (she may be the former mayor by the time you read this). He put together a delegation Cleveland's sister city in China, ZhenJiang. It could mean tremendous business opportunities for Cleveland but does Calamity Jane get it?

Here's the standard grip'n'grin shot. This is why I left photojournalism years ago. But for Ellis, why not?

Here's many happy faces at TCP as they greet the Chinese digitaries.

The Jim Fisher 2005 Whirl Tour - Boston

Time to get back on track with the blog. I have traveled often over the last few months so here are some dog n pony shots. I will add more from time to time.

Let's start with Boston.

Here's a nice skyline from my hotel.

A doorway to an expensive apartment in the Back Bay. Note the two-toned stairs.

This one's just for fun. If you stay at the Colonnade Hotel you'll find these cute little rubber duckies in the bathrooms. I was in Boston for the PhotoShop conference and had just bought a LensBaby. It allows you to take pictures with a single focus area (like the old pin-hole cameras). Well, here's my first attempt. Pucker-up everyone!

Two Boston skyscrapers. To the left is the Prudential Center. The lower levels have a nice shopping mall and it all leads to Hynes Hall.

A close-up of the Prudential Center. Looks very mechanized.

A beautiful church. This is the Christian Science Center in Boston's Back Bay.

A closeup of the tower of The Mother Church.

Two towers again. To the left is the Mother Church Extension built in 1906 and to the right is the Original Ediface built in 1895.

You don't see carvings like this anymore.

Reflections are fun. Notice what the windows did to the blue sky? Almost like a paint brush.

A sunflower in the city of Boston.
