Rome’s Colosseum at night.
A quiet moment from Paris’ 6e Arrondissement.
Of all the pilgrimage sites in Burma, the Golden Rock or Kyaiktiyo in Mon State was at the top of my ‘to do’ list, second only to the majesty of Shwedagon pagoda in Yangon. Once there, I met a huge group of colourful nuns from Mawlamyine who had come to pay their respects.
One of my favorites from my time in Bagan. Dawn on the 2nd day there, atop Bu-le-di: the cold wind on my face as I bicycled toward the ruins, scrambling up a zedi at dawn to get a better view of the rising sun, the light reflecting on the thousands of stupas carpeting the plains below – how can one sleep through these kinds of memories?
Majestic, beautiful Pancake the tiger, taken in Chiang Mai’s Tiger Kingdom….happily without losing an arm or leg in the process!
On South Plaza island, I stumbled upon this tough-looking, come-hither iguana. “I dare you to take my picture” he (perhaps a she?) seemed to be saying. Of course, I happily obliged.
It is rare to get such a clear shot from 32,000 feet, but my window seat on this South African Airways flight to Cape Town provided me with a great vantage point.
This photo was taken on the ferry back from Manly Beach, and everyone on board braved the strong winds and rain to try and capture the huge blanket of clouds over the Harbour Bridge.
