From a visual essay about Amsterdam: "I suppose there were a few nice days in spring — days when I could bike through the city without my heavy winter coat.
But I could count days like this on one hand. Most days were darker and colder."

From a visual essay about Amsterdam: "Everything was more colorful and vibrant. People were outside, on the streets, in the parks, not cooped up in their homes watching Eurovision with bleak attitudes and dour expressions. People barbequing in gardens, drinking beer on patios, zipping around on scooters. Drunk tourists sitting on the canal wall, singing songs I can only assume were related to soccer. Happy dogs and happy children. Sunlight until 11PM. This was the Amsterdam I’d arrived in nearly a year before, and this was the Amsterdam I was sad to leave behind."

From a visual essay on the St. Louis Rams: "
Some serious video equipment covered the whole spectacle — giant metal arms flung giant cameras around the stadium so they could record every detail of every down."

From a visul essay about Amsterdam: "Centuries ago, the look-away policy sheltered pious Catholics from strict Protestants. Anne Frank was not the only resident of Amsterdam forced to hide in the attic as a result of religious persecution. Protestantism and its austere values had Catholics practicing in secret for hundreds of years. The Ons Lieve Heer op Solder (Our Lord in the Attic) is an impressive Catholic church, built across the connected attics of three canal houses. Most people knew that covert Catholics congregated there every Sunday, but despite occasional complaints from nosy neighbors, the city government never cracked down (after all, it wasn’t hurting anybody, and Catholics were productive members of Dutch society). "
From a visual essay about Amsterdam: "When I first started biking through Amsterdam, I was clumsy and timid (on my first ride I crashed into the side of a moving taxi and got yelled at by its angry Turkish driver). At some points, I would actually make a right turn rather than figure out how to proceed across a busy intersection. This led me into a maze of small streets and alleys lined with bars, apartments, and lost tourists."
From a visual essay about Istanbul: "One of the poorest areas of Istanbul, the Kurdish neighborhood was built secretively, in three nights. At dark, the Kurds erected hundreds of makeshift houses. The building ceased once the government caught on and cracked down–well, tried to crack down. The Kurds had come prepared to defend their land, and after a decade of armed conflict, their neighborhood remains, sitting right on prime Istanbul real estate. It is supported by the municipality, but barely. The neighborhood features rolling blackouts, a spotty water supply, and 65,000 people sharing a single, tiny hospital. The residents are shy and keep to their colorful homes. A police tank is still parked on the street–an artifact of the neighborhood’s strife-ridden beginnings."
