Eternally yours…

A view form a hill just north of the Forbidden City, in Beijing, China. From Jingshan Park, if memory serves… This is a view of the north gate… in the far distance you might be able to make out the southernmost gate of the city; and on the other side of that is Tiananmen Square… I swear to you I could spend a month in the Forbidden City, shooting with a different lens, all day, every day, and still not do this place justice, photographically… The way the light strikes the various surfaces, and always shifting… The people… The museums…   It is truly a marvel…       Advertisements

Wishing I was there…

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I got to go to Greece for about 5 or 6 days… for work… Well, my work involves a great deal of physicality and chutzpah, so after we were done setting up, but before the gig, I climbed to the top of the structure we’d built and captured the above… and many more besides… Something about the romance of the Mediterranean, coupled with the scenery, made it all seem terribly adventurous to me… And as you can see… My love affair with sunsets goes way back…        

Just chillin’…

… in the window of a temple many hundreds of years old… I’m not sure what the these two were doing, except just hanging out… They were there when I arrived, and they were there when I left… And only slightly perturbed at the interruption of a tall westerner… Unlike so many children I saw at the Angkor Wat experience, these two weren’t all that interested in shaking down this tourist… Just chillin’… At just one more temple out in the jungles of Cambodia…   Maybe they were seeing into their future, and maybe knowing about this post, some seven years into their future, and realizing it was written on this, the 402nd anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, and possibly, the 454th anniversary of the birth of the best-selling fiction author of all time…?   Naw… Just chillin’…
