Here's a follow up interesting documentary of a Vietnamese Tarzan who grew up in the jungle for 40 years since when he was one.

A lantern can light up the beach

Just an hour ago, this lantern was overpowered by the brightness of the sun. Pretty soon it will be the most important source of light on this beach.

If you feel like an insignificant lantern, be where your humble abilities can shine.

Finally got a chance to execute the double exposure technique with the Sony A7mII.  It was easier to set up than the Canon 5DmIII or 6D, but you'd have to accept the default configuration.  It's an add-on software you download onto the camera.

In case you have a Canon, here's a tutorial by +Sara Byrne on how to set it up on the 5DmIII.

Appreciation

Here's a place for locals to come out and relax in Ninh Thuan. I've seen many larger waterscapes, but seeing how these people find amazement in this smaller one taught me the virtue of appreciation. #RediscoverVietnam #vietnam #ninhthuan

Do you recall the last time you couldn't wait to get home? What were you looking forward to?

Inspiration requires a lot of free time, which is a luxury for me currently. Even though I've been carrying around a compact camera, it was somewhat useless because I didn't have time to compose. I happened to be near this road to the village while waiting for someone, so I figured I could capture something to rekindle the fire. ‪#‎rediscovervietnam‬ #vietnam #village #bicycle  #sunset

Nice assurance when taking photos in Los Angeles.

Red

I haven't been posting lately partly due to my crashed hard drive.  I almost lost 2 years worth of photos!  Fortunately I found a software to recover almost all the RAW files, but I had to filter and reprocess 16,177 from scratch.  

This was taken inside a quasi-museum in Scotland last Summer.  I forgot the name, but it looked like red a church from outside.  It was actually nearby the Edinburgh Castle.  I've been to the castle twice, but this was the first time I explored this structure.  Hopefully I'll begin to post more frequently now that things are starting to get back to normal.

I've been MIA for awhile, but have not lost touch with the art world. Is anyone planning to go museums hopping this Saturday? I'm itching for some clicking and drinking. 😁

How a Blind Person Uses a Cane
As I was leaving the Starbucks drive-through, I noticed a blind man standing at the exit.  I stopped to let him pass, but he walked straight towards my car.  After talking to him, I learned that he thought the drive-through was the street pavement.  I told him it was a few steps over and moved out of the way for him to get there.

I've always been impressed by blind people moving around so accurately with the cane, but never really knew the technique.  If you blindfold me and give me a cane, you will find me in a ditch shortly afterwards.  

Maureen Bassmaster described in details how she used the cane to help her get around.  I never thought that the tip of the cane was used to determine various ground textures.  She also used the echo generated from it to detect objects nearby.  There are other "How a blind..." videos from her channel in case you want to learn more.

Here's a trivia.  According to Wikipedia, the white cane was first introduced by a photographer, James Biggs, who became blind after an accident.  Being concerned about the traffic around his house, he painted his walking stick white for high noticeability.
