A few weeks ago, I heard the breaking of glass at about two am. I looked out of the window and saw two very drunken young people sprawled on the ground. One had fallen over the other. The one who was on top was holding a beer bottle which broke in his hand as he […]

that the recession is over. Hmmm. I told a friend of mine that this blog doesn’t contain content that is much of a political nature. I suppose it doesn’t, given that I can be very jaded towards politicians of any stripe. However this image seems to sum up my feelings about the last few months […]

This Airstream travel trailer is so shiny that it reflects the adobe house off of its stainless steel skin. I found this little trailer in a small New Mexican village called Galisteo, which is really home to an artist colony. It is about 28 miles south of Santa Fe and about 40 miles northeast of […]

One of my more recently produced painterly motion-driven images. There is very little post production work done in this image. Most of what you see is either motion, or me playing to the usual quirks of a Nikon sensor. The rest? Well, I’m not even sure it’s F8 and be there. I ‘d just call […]

back in Hong Kong, the trams are still rolling. Built in the early 1900s, the trams have been one very stable mode of transportation on the island, stretching almost the entire length of the island on the harbor side. They are rather cramped inside, but they are double decked, giving the upstairs riders a nice […]

Thailand is mostly a Buddhist country. There are a few Christians through – out the country and there are Muslims in the southern area as it reaches Malaysia. This golden Buddha face is found in the largest temple in Thailand, just north of Bangkok. On any day, there are thousands of people praying and making […]

from Thailand. Let’s go shopping on the river about 40 miles south of Bangkok near Bang Noi which is very close to the Gulf of Thailand. Here, as in other spots along many rivers; tradespeople, farmers and fisherman gather to sell their wares on sort of a floating Wal Mart. It’s just like Wal Mart, […]
