Whipped Hamer woman in Tumi

The scars on this woman are wore with pride. She was whipped with a slender stick when her son or another close younger male became a man in the Jumping of the Bulls ceremony. The young guy runs across the backs of a row of cattle (not all of them are bulls) to prove his [...]

Vang Vieng bridge, Laos

Vang Vieng is a great place to photograph because of the limestone karsts that pepper the countryside. Most backpackers who visit this part of laos are here for the tubing on the Nam Song. The accepted practice is to hire a tube, get driven a few kilometers out of town and float down the river [...]

Ethiopian boy

I snapped this little guy who was hanging around waiting for the empty water bottle (which he duly got). He was real shy and didn’t say anything – not that I can speak Amharic anyway. When I zoom in on the picture I can see myself taking this photo reflected in his eyes.

Evening chat in Jijiga

Jijiga is a little town near the border of Somaliland and the cross border trade is what keeps this place alive. There’s not much to do here – it’s hot, dusty and full of camels. I got to drink camel’s milk which was quite nice. apparently it is a lot like human milk. There is [...]

Man weaving, Nam Ha NPA, Laos

This photo was taking at the end of a two day trek in Nam Ha NPA. It is incredible how much forest is still being burnt for agriculture purposes. Villages, like this one, are right inside the national park and people often use slash and burn farming techniques. But it is not like you can [...]

Seals at Ohau Stream, Kaikoura, NZ

This is quite a cool spot, just outside of kaikoura in New Zealand’s South Island. These seal pups head up the stream to play under a waterfall. They are completely friendly and the day that we went, there was about 50 seal pups frolicking in the pond under the waterfall. I talk about this place [...]

Storm over Halong Bay, Vietnam

Halong Bay is a bit of a tourist Mecca. It seems that every tourist is South East Asia, sooner or later finds themselves on a boat cruise of the 3000 or so limestone islands that make it such a draw.  The boats are called junks and while some certainly are, most are rather nice. Halong [...]

Hanoi Market Sellers

One of the many shots that Debbie and I took while wandering around the back streets of Hanoi. I love the crumbling old wall they are leaning against.

Tam-Coc Vietnam

The limestone outcrops around Tam-Coc (in Vietnam) are threaded by this deep green river and for a few dollars the locals will take you up the river in their boats. The weird thing is that they row the boats with their feet and they make it look easy, but it ain’t  – I tried. Not [...]

Lock-neck woman, Thailand

I meet this lady on the Thai/Burma border. She and others from her tribe (Padung Hill Tribe) were living in a refugee camp in northern Thailand. They stretch their necks by wearing heavy brass coils. As they age they wear more and more coils which force down their collar bones. For the Padung people it [...]

Giving alms in Lauang Prabang, Laos

A great photo opportunity in Laos is the daily ritual of Buddhist monks collecting alms just after sunrise. The monks rely on the food given to them each morning by the good folk of Lauang Prabang who are in turn blessed for the generosity.  Because this is a religious practice be respectful and keep your [...]

Ta Prohm Temple, Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Ta Prohm looks like something out of Tomb Raider (which it is). The fact that the trees are growing all over it only adds to its appeal. Of all the temples in Angkor Wat this was my favourite because of the snakey tree roots. It’s hard to get a shot without other tourists in the [...]

Tonle Sap Village, Cambodia

After a hairy ride on the back of a motorbike along a heavily rutted clay road, we came across this village on the banks of Tonle Sap.  During the rainy season, the lake rises and the area floods, hence the houses are built on stilts to keep above the rising waters.  Everything of value, including [...]

Kahurangi National Park, NZ

This place is wet and damp – as is most of the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island.  Debbie and I had gone here to photograph the limestone arches that this park is famous for, (we took this shot of Moria Gate on the same day) when we came across this pretty bend in a [...]

Kaikoura Seals, NZ

These are New zealand Fur seals and you can see them on the rocky headlands next to the road as you drive between Picton and kaikoura in New Zealand. In fact there are so many seals that local fishermen regard them as a pest, maintaining they are eating too many fish. To take this photo [...]
