Portrait of a Papuan Boy - Black & White

This is my favorite portrait from the trip so far. I find myself looking at him just as intently as he is looking back. I've been trying to come up with a good title for this photo, but don't really know what to say. I guess it doesn't really need a title.

Portrait of a Papuan Grandma

This grandmother was sitting on the porch of the house she lives in with her son and grandchildren. Her face and pose caught my attention as I walked through the village. I never got a chance to talk to her, but after I took this photo she smiled and turned away as if shy. Her son was pleased that I took her photo and proudly explained that this was his mother. This photo was taken in Papua, Indonesia.

Filipina Smile

Filipina Smile

Portrait of a Filipina smiling, taken in Bontoc, northern Philippines (island of Luzon). It seems that not everyone uses Filipina to indicate a female Filipino, but I think it's correct given the Spanish influence in the Philippines.

Man in the Market: Jerusalem Old City Arab Market or Souk

I took this photo while walking through the Arab Market (Souk) in the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City. The Old City of Jerusalem encompasses the original city as it was during King David's time, and is still surrounded by the city walls. No flash used in the photo; just perfect timing for this man to walk out of the shadows of the market into a small section of light.

Portrait of an Old Woman working in Rice Fields - Philippines, Bagabag

Take a good look at this old Filipina's face; she has a lot to tell. No doubt she's spent years working hard in the rice fields of Bagabag, Luzon, Philippines. Along with the other women in her working group, she is picking young rice shoots, which will be later re-planted in different rice fields farther apart. Astute viewers may notice this is the same lady in my Gathering Rice Shoots photo I posted a while back, taken from above looking down (though you can't see her face in that photo).

I Can Fly!

Synchronized flying with Scott & Kai. No image manipulation of any kind involved. Just some precise timing with my camera's self-timer, a fisheye lens, and a gorillapod tripod. This was taken on Gospel Rock near Gibson's Landing on the Sunshine Coast north of Vancouver, BC, Canada.

A World Away - Glimpse of a Child's Life in Rural India

This child's life is a world away from most of us. It's hard to imagine what her days are like in rural India helping her family work in the fields.

Early Morning Chai - Darjeeling, India

A boy enjoying his morning Chai in chilly Darjeeling. My visit to Darjeeling was definitely a highlight of my time in India November 2008. I realized that I haven't posted many photos from that trip here (only Taj Mahal and Kangchendzonga panorama), so I will post some more here in the coming weeks.

This man's great smile reveals his red stained teeth common among people in Papua who chew betel nut: the areca palm (Areca catechu), which is chewed together with lime and betel pepper as a stimulant.

Soccer Team

These four kids played soccer every afternoon in the field next to where we stayed in the village (the only flat place around, since this is a really hilly area). Sometimes others would join them, but they seemed to be the most devoted to the sport. I asked if they'd be willing to stop for a minute for a photo and this is what I got.

This girl stared back at Katie and me as we squatted inside with her parents. It was almost completely dark, but as always the Filipino hospitality overflowed this tiny house in northern Luzon. I don't remember specifically what they served us to eat, but I remember it was generous.

Me and my girl. This was taken inside an abandoned home in the mining ghost town of Bodie. Katie noticed this old mirror hanging on the wall in a picture frame, and so I shot this photo of us while holding the camera low enough to be out of view.

A good friend of our family who met up with us near the end of our trek. He couldn't believe that Katie had made it the whole way carrying her backpack...on her shoulders! Sera women never carry bags on their shoulders; they always carry bags from their foreheads.

Sera Boy Wearing Loincloth

We met this kid in one of the most remote villages of our trek this summer. Around here most kids go naked, or else wear a simple loincloth. They used to use bark for their loincloths, but now often use cloth like this one.
