Dan Price is a Midwest-based freelance photographer whose aim is to capture the mood of a given moment.  

He got his start when a doctor prescribed daily walks as a part of his treatment in battling Lyme disease. Shooting surroundings that he was presented, like his backyard or a nearby field, became an important part of his recovery.

Hidden Treasures: The Bridges of Asia

"Something there is that doesn't love a wall," wrote Robert Frost in his well known poem "Mending Wall." And indeed there are many walls, past and present, in places like Berlin and Bethlehem, that are difficult to love.

But this is not so with bridges.  Bridges connect instead of divide.  They invite us to venture to the other side and see what is there, and allow others to visit us where we are too.  They have style, architecturally at least, and they carry life.  And so to borrow from Frost's line of thinking: something there is that loves a bridge!

I love Instagram. I love finding new people, searching new tags, and getting new glimpses into lives, nature, the world. One such discovery is photographer JoAnn Kraft, who captures nature so beautifully that I feel as if I am right there with her, seeing through her eyes.

Pisa: Not Just the Tower

If you go to Tuscany, you think of hill towns, medieval villages, Florence, Siena, and maybe Lucca. They are all great places to visit. But what is not far away from this part of Italy is the town of Pisa. And you all know what is in Pisa, right? THE LEANING TOWER OF PISA, of course.

San Donato In Poggio in Pictures: The Beauty of Tuscany

On a trip to Tuscany, this is the place to stay. It is halfway between Florence and Siena, and not far from San Gimignano and Volterra. This beauty of a town is small but still shows its medieval heritage. The main part of town is still surrounded by the walls built back in the 12th century for protection. So many touches of the original remain, such as arches and towers.
