Bangladesh. Coming Home (Soon.)

In Travel by David10 Comments

I have about 24 hours left in Bangladesh, then begin the long journey home via Singapore and Seoul. This week in Bangladesh has been a surprise; I enjoyed this place and its people more than I could have predicted. Being on assignment doesn’t give me the freedom to do any of my own shooting, we work long days and each …

Where In The World, Feb 2009

In Travel, Where In the World by David1 Comment

I fly back to Asia today (starting with a mind-numbing 19-hour flight to Singapore) and will be in Bangladesh – or in transit – from February 12th to the 23rd, shooting for World Vision Canada. See you when I’m back. Click the map to embiggen it. Don’t forget to enter the Lensbaby Composer Giveaway. I’ll do the draw when I …

Ha Noi

In Travel, Within The Frame by David4 Comments

Of all the places we visited in January, Ha Noi was perhaps the one the least connected with me. I had a great time there, but visually it failed to connect with me the way I had hoped and that was a disappointment. But it’s not you, Ha Noi, it’s me. I came in with expectations I don’t think I …

Bangkok

In Travel, Within The Frame by David3 Comments

Bangkok was more of a layover than a destination on this trip; a place to meet up with colleagues and take a breather. We shot the local vegetable market, the Grand Palace, and assorted streets and alleys. But mostly we talked, and ate, so this one’s a short one. Best Hostel I’ve Stayed In. We stayed at the Lub-d Hostel …

Kathmandu

In Travel, Within The Frame by David8 Comments

Ah, Kathmandu. For some reason it just feels like coming home to me. A noisy, chaotic, disfunctional home, but home all the same. I’ve spent more time in Kathmandu than any other Asian city, and I really like it. We were in Kathmandu this time for only 5 days, and it was fantastic. I’ve been there in June, in October, …

Cairo

In Travel, Within The Frame by David6 Comments

If there was one city on this trip that intimidated the heck out of me it was Cairo. Huge. Smoggy. Dusty. Noisy. Did I mention huge? Overwhelmingly so. Tried to bite off way more than I can chew, spread myself too thin. It took 3 days and I finally gave-up and did what I should have done in the first …

Almost. Home.

In Travel, Within The Frame by David10 Comments

After what will be almost 30,000 miles flown, I am very. nearly. home. Lying in the most comfortable bed in the world at the Mark Hopkins Intercontinental in San Francisco watching the sun rise, anticipating the first decent cup of coffee in a month, and meeting my publishing team for sushi this evening, I’ve had a jet-lagged 4 hours to …

Postcard From Ha Noi.

In Travel by David3 Comments

Hello from Ha Noi, Viet Nam. Wish y’all were here. If the calendar is to be believed I have two more days here before I begin the homeward journey via Seoul and San Francisco. I’ll later be doing some reports about the trip and the places I’ve been so I’ll keep this short. Just wanted to drop a line. We’re …

Postcard From Bangkok

In Travel by David4 Comments

Have had a really lovely time here in Bangkok – spent the last two days with Gavin Gough and Matt Brandon, wandering, shooting a little, but mostly sitting around talking and conspiring to take over the world. The usual stuff. It’s refreshing to be with other photographers with no need to compete, no need even to go and shoot, but …

Postcard From Kathmandu

In Travel by David7 Comments

Hey y’all. Thanks so much for your patience, I know posts have been slow in coming. The good news is that the trip is going well. The pressure of the book was getting to me a little and I think that meant a slow start out of the gate creatively, but the images I’m shooting, even though I can’t show …
