From Northern Kenya this January, a herder brings his flocks home under the setting sun to celebrate Almatho. I didn’t anticipate this one. We’d been out the night before making portraits and I’d seen similar scenes. I thought the herds were home now. But the next night they kept rolling in, and the celebrations began. I spent a couple hours …

Antarctic Farewell

In Antarctica, Postcards From..., Travel, Within The Frame Adventures by David20 Comments

Top, Bivouacked in Antarctica. Not my warmest night ever. Antarctica and the Drake Passage are behind us now. One last day to look through our work together, then we all go separate ways. I’ve made lifelong friends here and solidified others in beautiful ways. And now we’re scheming to come back, because this is a place you fall in love …

Postcard from Antarctica: Pleneau Island

Another day in Antarctic waters. Yesterday it was Pleneau Island and Peterman Island. This morning we woke to more sunshine and dramatic mountains rising, seemingly, straight out of ice-strewn water, black, clear and deep. Weather’s been a treat – warm and sunny – and a change from the mood and drama of last year. Secretly I’m hoping for a return …

Quick postcard from the Kathmandu valley in Nepal. After 5 days in Kathmandu, mostly in the very Buddhist community of Boudhanath and the very Hindu area of Pashupatinath, we’re moving on to the Newari town of Bhaktapur. The last week’s been a blur as we’ve settled into a routine with this place, and each other. Before leaving for Bhaktapur we …

Gobi Impressions, Triptych II. Mongolia, 2012. Yesterday I posted the first of these, all taken with my big-boy camera, the Nikon D3s. These three I shot with my iPhone while driving, using an app called Slow Shutter, which for I think $0.99 has given me more fun and creative pleasure than all my other apps, or expensive dSLR gear put …

Gobi Impressions

Gobi Impressions, Triptych. Mongolia, 2012. A triptych made of images shot during my recent time in the Gobi desert. Handheld at low shutter speeds, I moved the camera back and forth to create a series of impressions. My friend Wendy does a lot of work like this and the art she creates continually blows me away and often creates in …

August Desktop Wallpaper

The White Stupa sand cliffs, Mongolia, 2012 Last month’s desktop wallpaper was a little late, so I thought I’d give you a little time to enjoy it before throwing something new at you. I know, takes a lot of nerve to call 3 weeks “a little late” but then if I’d never posted it, 3 weeks late would have been …
