I spent some time with my regular travel buddy Hamish and took the opportunity to photograph some of his photos that he took whilst we were on trips. This one was from 1998 when we toured around the Mekong Delta region. The ducks work in the paddy fields eating weeds & insects that could be […]

I bought myself a dvd drive and software for my Apple Mac for Christmas and have been busy creating dvds using my photos & videos with an appropriate soundtrack. One of my first efforts was from our 2018 trip to South America, which featured the photo below from one of Rio’s iconic beaches.
