Novita in Koh Samet, Thailand

This pier proved to be an interesting location for taking some casual photos of Novita while in Koh Samet, Thailand. There were lots of little children playing on the planks above our heads, laughing and jumping off into the clear waters below. Throughout all of Southeast Asia, everyone assumes she’s a native of their own country.

Shanghai on foot: Photographing Shanghai

I just returned from 10 fantastic days in Shanghai, China. The primary purpose of the visit was for an educational conference, but I decided to stay another few days thereafter to photograph as much of Shanghai as I could. I ended up basically walking for 12-14 hours a day with 30lbs of gear strapped to my back. Way to travel light!?

A few locations I managed to get to: Suzhou, Pudong, French Concession, the Bund, Nanjing Rd, Xintiandi, People’s Square, and the rest maybe you guys can recognize.

I took around 40GB worth of photos with my Canon 6D and Fuji X-E1. Love those cameras! I’ll be posting photos from the trip in upcoming posts. I really wish I had another week to cover even more of the city, as I found that the more I explored, the more I wanted to see. I definitely need to return again in the near future. More to come soon.
