South Dade, Florida, USA

August 23, 1992: Twenty-five years ago today, Hurricane Andrew strengthened to a Category 5 storm, with sustained winds of 155 mph when it made landfall in the Bahamas. It was inevitable: Florida would be next. This is what the landscape looked like six months after the great storm god struck Dade County. [1993]

Haghpat, Armenia

So much for socialization! Four people: each gazing in a different direction, almost as if they don't know each other. Yet, they must. Haghpat is little more than a village, and this is the village square. [2015]

Tbilisi, Georgia

In Tbilisi, fresh-fruit-and-vegetable vendors insinuate themselves into every nook and cranny they can find along the city's well-trafficked sidewalks. Of course, there are central markets and neighborhood markets, too. The result is that no matter where you look, there are lots of fresh-food choices. Compare with American cities. [2015[
