February 2012 Wallpaper

Lalibela, Ethiopia. 2012.

I’m as close to home as I’m going to be for a while now. A month after heading to Africa and tromping about Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania, I’m back to packing my bags and this time for the haul.

On February 11 I’ll get into the Jeep and head towards Maine after a brief stop to visit family in Ontario. And then it’s 9 weeks of un-interupted road-tripping to see what I can discover and photograph, before a 3-week break in April/May takes me to Europe to teach and lecture. No plans beyond that. I want to stop in the Keys and finally get my PADI Open Water Diver certificate, then head west where I hope to spend much of the year. Under wide skies, in remote places, looking for the light. Part nomad, part pilgrim, I guess. Which is why I’ve chosen the image above as the desktop wallpaper for February. The man silhouetted on top of Mount Tabor in Lalibela, Ethiopia, is a pilgrim, one of many I photographed that walked between 5 days and 3 weeks to get to Lalibela for Orthodox Christmas, before turning around after a few days to walk all the way home, the destination only a thin slice of the larger blessing sought on the journey.

Postcard from Lalibela

Wow, this might be longest I’ve ever gone without fully functional internet. Nice to take a break but the few times I tried to get online were fraught with frustration. After almost 2 weeks in northern Ethiopia, and most of that among the pilgrims of Lalibela, I’m now heading to Nairobi for two days of […]
