The Passage

Something new that I just processed which I thought is worth sharing. This was taken during the photo-safari to Siem Reap, Cambodia at end of last year – at Ta Prohm, the same ruins where Tomb Raider (starring Angelina Jolie) was filmed. It is shots like this that make me yearn to go on another […]

Back from my Myanmar photo-safari

Time seems to fly when one is having fun. That's exactly what happened on this trip to Bagan, Myanmar with this fun group of 11 photographers. With so many wonderful shooting opportunities, good food and great company, one cannot ask for anything more.

The gong just sounded signaling to all disciples that lunch was ready. Everyone was going in all directions to their respective rooms […]


Day 1 – arrival at Yangon, Myanmar

Myanmar is truly a land of unsurpassed beauty and inspiration to many photographers with the Buddhist religion being the focal point of the countless pagodas and stupas there. Monasteries and nunneries are everywhere and if these are part of your itinerary, which I strongly recommend they should be included, I suggest you come prepared with […]


The happy monk

I am still going through my 80G of files of my Myanmar trip and doing some haphazard post-processing with them. I hope to write a travelogue of my recent trip there when I have finished the post-processing. Before that happens I'll share some images of this wonderful country and her beautiful people.

I met this […]

This photo was taken at a temple just outside Siem Reap. This disciple monk was curious […]
