Stamp Treks

StampTreksThumbStamp Treks is my series of original photographs inspired by the subjects portrayed in our nation’s postage stamps. My intent is to provide a place where you can learn about the stamp issue, the history of the subject, as well as travel tips and web links that help you experience our heritage. See my introduction post on this series for an overview. I also have FAQ entries on Stamp Collecting, exploring, and some photographic techniques I use.

Click on the titles in the list below to view the entry for that photograph. See the Stamp Treks Gallery page for easy browsing of images in this collection and the Stamps Gallery page for viewing all the stamps that inspired them. See my Shop page for information on purchasing prints.
