I’ll have the Gator

In Jessie and I, Just For Fun, Travel by David54 Comments

Actual conversation in Louisiana, somewhere on the bayou. I’ve been thinking about it ever since and suspect- just maybe – the human brain doesn’t do well on the toxic combination of gator, frogs and deep-fry. I do love it here, and the people are great, but this one was too funny not to pass along. Me: I’m not from around …

Another Postcard from Jamaica

In Just For Fun, News & Stuff, Travel by David19 Comments

One last full day here in Jamaica. The sun finally came out and I traded my sweater for swim trunks and my snorkelling gear. Stumbled across Tony who took me out to shoot some staged dive shots while I tried to get on top of the learning curve with underwater shooting. I’ve learned so much over the last week, though …

The Nikon Post

In GEAR, Just For Fun, News & Stuff by David

I am approaching this post with trepidation knowing what kind of strange misplaced fury these issues bring up in some people. If only some people put as much energy into their creative lives, eh? But you are not those people, so that’s why I’m not keeping this to myself. You folks are friends and deserve to know the reasons for …

Postcard from Kho Samed

In Just For Fun, Travel by David21 Comments

Last night up to my neck in the warm waters off Kho Samed. Hello from the small island of Kho Samed. I came here last year for a couple days at the end of a 2 week shoot in northern Thailand, and knew I had to come back. So when I had a week to hangout between the Ladakh and …

Suck-Mode.

In Just For Fun, Pep Talks, Rants and Sermons, Vision Is Better by David34 Comments

Me. Happily in Suck-Mode in Kenya. Man I miss Africa! The image has nothing whatsoever to do with the post so don’t go looking for deeper meanings. Sometimes a photograph is just filler, ya know? During the Q&A time at Amazon the other day a guy in the audience asked me a question. It must have been very complicated because …

20 Perfect Things

In GEAR, Just For Fun, Travel by David78 Comments

Perfect Thing #19. Shooting What You Love. Shot this on the island of Goree in Senegal last month. A day to wander, shoot, and hang out with a friend. Life is about these kinds of moments. I should be slaving away on a million things right now but I’m feeling a little sheepish over the neglect this blog’s suffered recently. …

Gifts

In Books, Just For Fun, News & Stuff by David34 Comments

Hi all. Hope you had a lovely holiday, filled with family, friends, and love. Ours was subdued, a close friend was diagnosed to have a brain tumour and that brought the tone of things down. But it re-calibrates you in a hurry, this kind of event; reminds you quickly of the things you truly want for Christmas – health, family, …
