News from Steve Shames

New Website!

Welcome to the online galleries of Steve Shames. I hope you enjoy this new website!  We took another trip to the Serengeti in October, so I will be posting pictures from that adventure soon. I'm still working on posting pictures from our June trip to Botswana. Also we just had a journey to the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest in eastern California, so I will have pictures of that as soon as I can process them. I live in the Sacramento metro area in California with the love of my life and travel partner, Lauri. Below are the trips we have planned for 2022 and beyond.
