we recently had a multicultural festival in Durban, and during the opening parade I was fortunate enough to get this smile

I took this awhile ago in northern Thailand in the hill villages. I was looking through some of my old images and always enjoyed seeing this smile.

This is my wife's father and step-mother. I took their portrait using a hand-painted studio canvas and studio lighting. This setup included a single light to the left inside a large softbox and a single white reflector to the right for fill.

Getting ready for lighting the candles at the Russian Orthodox Church, this young girl provided a nice smile and did a quick pose for me.  Eyes were precious.   I desaturated a little as the colors were harsh for her and softened it up a little with Color Efx Pro filters.

This was taken at night while walking around Guilin, China on the first night we arrived.  There are a few times when I appreciate shooting RAW and this was one of them.   The original is very dark as I had the camera on Manual and did not adjust as I wanted to get the scene.   Someone had just given this man a meal for which he was quite thankful.

This could have been a good image for the "Innocently Unaware" category, I guess. This girl idling in St. George's, Bermuda, was not the owner of the beer to her left!

The river tribes of Papua New Guinea seemed more "war-like" then the bribes up in the highlands as indicated by the man during the Crocodile Festival on the Sepik River region.   I was quite thankful they "fruited" the tip of the spear, but these guys were really fun.  They see a camera and POP...pose.  Then they would laugh and laugh.  Very expressive people.

The mod subculture originated in England in late 50s. Significant elements of the mod subculture include fashion (often tailor-made suits); music and motor scooters. This movement is very much alive and kicking  today with social gatherings all around the country.

The DC memorial to FDR uses a lot of Great Depression imagery, including these statues of a 1930s breadline. They are depicted as huddled and humiliated, and sometimes when a dusting of snow blows through the city it adds a poignant photographic flourish.

This was taken literally in a back alley on the streets of Guilin.  I have no idea what they were playing, but I did know the gentleman in the back was not doing too well.  There was some good laughter going on by the unknown "Ace" playing the next card.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial In Washington, D.C., was designed to reflect the national monuments while providing a powerful yet minimalist homage to the American military veterans who were lost in the Vietnam War. Countless photographs exist of the type presented here, and it's always hard to distinguish whether the sharp edifice of names carved in granite is the main focus of these images, or whether the soft background of the reflections from the National Mall is the story. Either way the credit belongs with the architect Maya Lin, who created the concept.

This photo was taken a little more than a year ago, at the same time as the photo I used in my "Introduce Yourself" gallery. This I think is about as exemplary and expressive as I can photographically be, about the true and awesome power of cupcakes!

I saw this girl everyday on my walk to work in Lusaka. This day either tiredness or the boringness of what she was reading overcame her.

I love the holidays at times when I get a chance to have time to go back through some of my prior trips and see if I can find some images I missed before.  This was one I picked from my trip to Sa Pa area of northern Vietnam and I had forgot what wonderful eyes she had.  This was taken at sunrise as she was trying to sell me some of her goods...which I did!

I just returned from San Francisco for my son's wedding and we had a day walking about the northern shores near the bridge.  One of my favorite places and in which my wife had not seen was the Palace of Fine Arts.   My wife is a doll-dress maker and I often take images of her dolls and clothes during our travels (yes..she takes 2 dolls per trip with clothes!) and I thought this was a great location for this portrait.

I never thought of visiting Hanoi especially after going up in the late 60's and 70's, but was wonderfully surprised when I visited there recently.   The hustle and bustle of the streets were fascinating.  I did some editing on this with de-saturating everything but the woman vendor center stage to try to bring her out a little, but retain the interest of all the interesting activity in the background.  Let me know what you think.

LEFT: In January 2000, a mile or so from the geographic South Pole (the station is visible in the distance), some bored construction workers carved ice sculptures out of the tundra with chainsaws, including this replica moai. Knowing then that I planned to visit Easter Island a decade later, I asked Jen to pose in front of it. RIGHT: In July 2010, when we finally visited Easter Island, Jen struck a similar pose in front of an actual moai - this time posing with the originally unforeseen addition of my daughter Zoe.

We stayed at a homestay in Sa Pa Valley area in northern Vietnam and while working there in the cool, damp weather, I came upon this charming young lady.  The beauty of many of these young people is their lack of exposure to the outside world and how happy they are.  Life is simple, but they always seem to put on a smile and be a pleasure to be around.

So here is my daughter Zoe last summer at Washington, D.C.'s Natural History Museum, standing in front of a display of a giraffe drinking water. She was not aware of the fabulous juxtaposition (she is chewing her hair distractedly) so I couldn't refuse the photograph!
