Not a big picture, but I still like it. Lake Ilopango is a formed in the mouth of a dormant volcano. I went scuba diving there once, but on this occasion, it was a cruise amongst the water hyacinths. As you can see a friend dipped her feet in water making a little plume asContinue reading “Feet in the Water, El Salvador”
Sorry, not really a photo, but I was trying to give the impression of a really busy place with people coming from all directions. And a bit of the contrasting old and new. I miss walking in Ho Chi Minh City, it has a bustling buzz. People are always doing something and there is alwaysContinue reading “District 1, Ho Chi Minh City”
There was a time, when I used to travel by plane quite a bit, mostly short haul within South-East Asia. Most of the life to be seen was outside the window- hence my hundreds of views from above photos, but sometimes funny moments happened on the plane. My neighbour and I never really did meet.Continue reading “Under the Seat, Vietnam”
I saw these guys as I got off the river bus in Bangkok. Judging by their boots, I think this must be their beat. The canals are popular thoroughfares in Bangkok, with the river buses carrying thousands of commuters to work every day.

This photo dates back to a session I did with Gavin Goff. We visited a number of markets and temples and Gavin got in there and approached people and interacted. I think this was the main thing I learned from him. Strange that this was just a grab shot then! Here, I was using anotherContinue reading “Market, Bangkok”
Most of the time, people don’t want you to take their picture – or would rather you didn’t- but sometimes they do. As I remember it, I had gone to Athens to watch a Georgia Bulldogs football game (I think it was against Ole Miss) and when I took this picture, I was trying toContinue reading “Take My Picture, Athens”
I really enjoyed my visit to Vientiane. Although it is modernising very quickly, the pace of life is still pretty slow and the people are quite friendly. At sunset, people tend to gather at the edge of the Mekong to watch the sun set and meet with friends.
Although I have been there quite a few times, I always enjoy walking around Shanghai – there is always something to see. The camera I was using was made in 1975 and as usual, I found myself wondering what the place I was visiting was like in 1975. West Nanjing Road is probably the mostContinue reading “Long Shadow, Shanghai”
