Travel means a lot of things to me and it makes me think of many things. Vacations, road trips, seeing family and friends - There is a certain comfort of being greeted with the familiar and an excitement of experiencing new. As I get older travel is also exploring traditions, nostalgia and heritage of the places we go, where as a kid I could have cared less. I wanted to use these memories, associations, and imagery to create something that brings all those things together.

The more common symbolisms with the image are blue birds - for luck, olive branches - for safety and peace. Some of the more personal memories captured are mostly from childhood: My Mom, my Dad, my Sister, Hanley's Happy Hill Ski Area, Chautauqua Lake and my uncle Max's motorboat, Lake Winnipesaukee, riding in the back seat of the old Chrysler LeBaron and my dad jumping the road median on the way back from TGI Fridays, seeing the water-ski show at Sea World, the Cessna Piper Cub. Where the more recent memories are of traveling with my Wife and our Son, Utz Snacks, enjoying the ride, noticing all things a 3 year old notices, walking, and older architecture.

The word Willkom is Pennsylvania Dutch meaning Welcome to our Home. I felt it was fitting to travel - coming or going - where you welcome people with hopes that people welcome you.

I hope you enjoy your go.
