The photos in this gallery are from my travels, some of which have stories I'm trying to figure out how to include here. This beach, for instance, in west Australia, is 90 miles long with only one entrance and no vegetation high enough to give any shade. It was remote, but no one was interested in it anyway because it was hot, extremely bright and you couldn't swim unless you walked into the water for maybe half a mile. I spent as much time on the beach as I could, picking up dry, white sand-dollars by the handful; I still have them in a bowl in my bathroom. I also have an amazing memory that I didn't quite get on film because I was using a polarizer. The sky was unlike anything I'd seen: it changed color in a slanted vertical line at the intersection of the ocean and sand - dark and light. It was extreme. You'll just have to imagine it. You're walking on that beach with your skin frying and the sky looking weird and you think this is just the most amazing place. And then you do something you thought you'd never do: you turn around and walk back to the car.
