Great to see some of my Filipino street photographer friends featured in the NY Times! Congratulations!
An exhibit opening this week in the Philippines showcases the work of street photographers, many of whom live among that country’s far-flung diaspora.

A red barn in the Palouse.  This one I had printed large by Artistic Photo Canvas.

If it's not still illegal to fly one over DC airspace, I'd check out the monuments.  If it is still banned, I'll have to think some more.

Broken

I really liked this rusted, sinking ship we passed on a boat cruise in the Beagle Channel, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. The orange-red rust really stood out against the blue water, sky, and mountains.

This is an older image (2006) that I worked with again last year for entering into a monthly camera club competition.

Hejaz Railway

A worn-out train and ruined station-turned-museum of the Hejaz Railway, the railway that T.E. Lawrence's forces would attack and disrupt. Outside Mada'in Saleh, in northwestern Saudi Arabia.

This is quite an old digital image for me (2005), and one that had not been that exciting at first glance. I found it again when experimenting after buying the Topaz Labs plug-ins; Topaz Adjust really helped me give it a boost that makes it more interesting.

One of my favorite leopard shots from Botswana, and one of my favorite black & whites.

Philippine Tarsier

The Philippine Tarsier is an endangered nocturnal primate found primarily on the island of Bohol in the Central Visayas region of the Philippines. They are typically about 6" tall and can jump great distances.

This shot was taken during the day at a visit to a Tarsier Sanctuary on Bohol, a far better place to see these creatures than the roadside tourist stands. I was lucky to get this shot with the Tarsier's eyes wide open, as most of the others we saw were sleeping.

As someone who first went to Bangladesh as a tourist (I later did a lot of work involving Bangladesh), I really enjoyed this article and photo essay from +Uncornered Market. (Bangladesh also had a favorable photography write-up on the Luminous Landscape website some years back.) One of these years I will have to make it back there.
Travel advice on how to plan an itinerary Bangladesh. Includes a Sundarbans tour, Dhaka, Bagerhat Mosques, Paharpur, village homestay, Srimongal and CHT.

Introduction
Thanks to a unique job, I have moved around the world, visiting, experiencing, and living in many different countries and cultures.  I turned to photography to try to capture some of those memories.
