Hi folks. Wow, two weeks and not a peep from me. Sorry about that. Ladakh is pretty remote and we were on the road enough that getting to an internet cafe to test my chances at a connection just never happened. But man I love Ladakh. We barely made it out of Leh this morning with an incoming weather front that cancelled flights yesterday but allowed us to squeak out in a small window of blue sky this morning.
We spent two weeks shooting and among those days one of them when I went to bed not far from Tso Moriri, a high altitude lake not far from the border of Tibet. I awoke to find my boots stolen, but when the rest of the day is spent moving a little higher to camp among nomads and yaks in a valley (image below) surrounded by mountains, it’s hard to complain, even in borrowed sandals that are two sizes two big. I went to bed with a fever and the fun that is e.Coli. What a day!
I’m in Delhi right now and in 7 hours will be on a plane to Bangkok, then a drive to Ban Phe, a boat across the Gulf of Thailand to Kho Samet and it’s pad thai, chang beer, and a hammock for a week on the beach before doing it all in reverse and heading to Nepal for Kathmandu Within The Frame. We’ve got a new eBook coming out soon – keep an eye out for it. In the mean time, go shoot something – or someone – you love. Hope you’re all well.
