This year, I decided to spend all my extra money and time on traveling. I’ve started to realize that at the end of my life, the one thing I’d regret is not going more places and seeing more things. In 2013, I’ve been all over the U.S., from Arizona and California to Tennessee and Connecticut, with a trip to the U.K. and Ireland thrown in for good measure. I always find myself drawn to bright colors and bold patterns, and this shows in the kind of snapshots I take while on vacation—or even at home. (The photo above was taken this weekend in Brooklyn.) Here are a few photos I’ve taken across America this year.
