I love photographing people in these touristy settings, where they are photographing friends and family, or themselves. There’s a noticeable pattern: take the photo, then come together to review, then redo if needed. Then it is the other persons turn to have their photo taken. As I see people facing in one direction and posing, I see a certain more relaxed, non-posed presentation from the side. – Staroměstské náměstí (Old Town Square), Prague.

I was very happy to experience this point of Spring. The ground is blooming but many large trees are just starting to bud. Sunlight illuminates the bare branches and we see just how complicated and vast their networks are. For now we can still see through them, but in a few weeks they will be filled with blossoms and then leaves.

This year the skins were thinner and slightly bumpy, the flesh softer than usual, but still incredibly flavorful and juicy. San Jose, California.
