Postcard from Kathmandu

In Postcards From..., Travel, Within The Frame Adventures by David9 Comments

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 …

Nepal: Packing, Workflow, & Giveaway.

In GEAR, Travel, Within The Frame Adventures by David

In a couple weeks I head back to Nepal for almost 2 weeks for our Kathmandu Within The Frame adventure. Each trip I do is different, but overall my packing has become lighter, thanks, in part, to changing technology, as well as the reality that I just can’t haul all the extra crap anymore. So what am I bringing to …

In Travel, Within The Frame Adventures by David3 Comments

Join Jeffrey Chapman and me for our favourite Within The Frame Photographic Adventures. From April 20-27 we’ll be in Liguria, starting in Genoa, to spend time in Cinque Terre and Camogli – coastal northern Italy at it’s best. Small fishing villages, beautiful twilight and morning hours, late dinners with brilliant food and wine. Teaching happens organically, through discussions as a …

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, 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

In Travel, Wallpapers, Within The Frame Adventures by David7 Comments

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 …

Mongolia Snapshots

In Travel, Within The Frame Adventures by David16 Comments

The ubiquitous UAZ, the Russian 4×4 vans you see everywhere in Mongolia. I want one of these so bad I can almost taste it. A few more snapshots from the Hasselblad in Mongolia: Self portrait. Mongolia, 2012. I walked past this thing (below) several times before I really saw it, stopped dead in my tracks and said, or thought, something …
