Sacked by the "downturn", an unemployed architect touring the country in a bus...

I used to live in New York City. I designed homes for the tycoons of Wall Street; Park Avenue, Scarsdale, Greenwich. It was great fun. And, after years of saving up for a down payment, I was just about to buy my own little place in Fleetwood, half an hour north of the city, when the economy fell apart. Architects are like canaries in a coal mine when the economy slows, and true to form, there were massive layoffs in firms all over the country. Devastation of the profession. So, I decided to try to find something else to do for a while. I bought a 23' school bus and I'm on the road to see if I can figure out what that might be.

Antelope Canyon

Beautiful little canyon carved in soft sandstone by wind and water.  Lots more photos to post.


  1. Who took the great photo of you?

  2. I took a photo exactly like this of another photographer. Then we switched places and he took one of me. (Aficionados will observe I am holding a Nikon, his, though my equipment is all Canon, which I prefer.)
