Fun with Goats

I recently ran some photography tour clients up to Mount Evans and ran across a fun bunch of mountain goats. While no big white males were around to impress us with their cool look, this little clan did a great job of providing some entertaining [click link to read more...]

While leading one of my Colorado photography tours our group happened across dozens of burros running down a windy mountain road (Virginia Pass) with owners in tow.  In all likelihood it was supposed to be the other way around, but you know burros....  right?

Anyway, that's a photos opp for sure [click link to read more...]

The Westernization of Myanmar Has Begun

Myanmar. A photographer’s dream come true for cultural photography may soon fall victim to the same westernization that we see in Japan, Korea, Thailand and others. KFC has opened it’s doors to the streets of Yangon and things will never be the same. [click link to read more...]

Only in the eyes of westerners.  Burma is the name given to the country by the British during their imperialist occupation of Myanmar.  Historically the land has been Myanmar.  The name was given because the largest sect within the country were known as "Burmese" and thus they named the country such.

The government officially changed the name back to it's original/proper name in 1989.  Because western governments (specifically the U.S.A, do not like the ruling government they basically ignore the change saying that they knew better what the populus prefered -  as such most westerners are ignorant of the name's history.

All Burmese whom I asked face to face said they use "Myanmar" as the country's name, sometimes Burmese in reference to their culture or heritage.  Its my opinion that history and the county's population know better than our government what they should be called.

It's a changing world, and soon it will become a homogeneous world. I don't much care for that idea, so I'm trying to see different cultures and unspoiled lands while they still exist. Along the way I want to help others to see the magic of the world around them through the lens of a camera.
