A model posed in the garden of Kinkakuji Shrine (Golden Pavilion). After I took this photo, someone told me she wasn’t a maiko (a young geisha-in-training), but just a young woman posing in traditional formal Japanese wear for a commercial.

heaven and hell



heaven and hell, originally uploaded by awfulsara.

The photographer: “This is one of my all time favorites, the first photo I took that blew me away, opened my eyes to the possibilities before me.

Taken in February of last year in Yellowstone National Park. The scene was even more surreal than a still photo can do justice, with steam rolling over the rise, creating backlit shifting patterns and shrouding the trees from view completely. Then for a moment, just a tiny moment, it would clear and the scene would split in half - all color and light and pristine snow on one side and twisted, tortured trees & steaming algae covered rock on the other.

I was a newbie to my 10D, and SLR photography in general, and had goofy settings - 800 ISO among other ridiculousness - which makes this shot one I would desperately desire to “redo” although I doubt I could recreate this if I tried. I will say this: if you ever get the opportunity to visit Yellowstone in the winter, for the love of Pete take that opportunity and run with it. Algae & Ice was taken the same morning…

Sapa School Girl’s Curious Mind

Filed under: — laurenz @ 5:53 pm



Sapa School Girl’s Curious Mind, originally uploaded by HRKVC.

The author: “Although Sapa means “sand village” in Chinese, Sapa is located within Vietnam and is home to a wealth of colorful, diverse hill tribes, who have steadfastly resisted integration into Vietnamese society and modern life. In fact, the hill tribes, including the Hmong, the Dao, and the Dai, comprise the majority of inhabitants in the area, outnumbering the Vietnamese who prefer the low lands. Sapa’s central market is a main gathering place for hill tribes from the surrounding villages. They congregate there not only to sell handicrafts, jewelry, orchids, mushrooms, and honey, but to also cultivate relations with other groups, play games, and perhaps find a sweetheart.”
