Scenes from everday life of the Burmese at work and worship.
Maynmar’s bustling port city of Yangon is a gritty and fascinating subject: unending lines of laborers offloading commodities, the lines of brightly painted boats ferrying people to & fro, the smell of sweat and frying foods. It is a very visceral experience.
One of my goals has been to photograph at the national mosque in Jakarta, the Masjid Istiqlal. So after spending many days at the Hindu Kumbh Mela, I flew off to Indonesia. This is the largest mosque in Southeast Asia and the grand domes prayer hall is a sight to behold, especially during prayers, when it is full to capacity.
More from this extraordinary event! Enjoy! Namaste!
I wish you could hear the sounds and smell the atmosphere.

Day 2 in Bandhavgarh National Park. When you are here, it is always about the tigers, but there are many other inhabitants that populate this beautiful landscape.
There is nothing like setting out to see Indian wildlife from elephant back on a chilly morning.
Here I am in Bandhavgarh National Park again. It is such an honor to be among these big cats in the wild. To travel on the backs of elephants into the bush is to travel back in time. Coming upon a tiger is like nothing else and each time it is still immensely exciting.
I love India and will be posting images throughout my travels, so stay tuned.
