At the end of each roll of film is an extra frame that doesn’t fit in the sleeve. I always put these into a separate sheet and then when I have a full sheet, I scan them. This is why there is little to no consistency to the images in this post. Enjoy them as […]

At the end of each roll of film is an extra frame that doesn’t fit in the sleeve. I always put these into a separate sheet and then when I have a full sheet, I scan them. This is why there is little to no consistency to the images in this post. Enjoy them as single images.

Nothing to say, only a couple pictures that I don’t really feel that strongly about.

Lazy Summer Days

The first two photos are from Hanoi Vietnam, and the last three are Hong Kong, my favorite city in the world. All shot on my Leica M2 with Arista Premium 400 and a voigtlander 35 1.4 It’s hot in Beijing. A sweaty, sticky mess.

Island Paradise in Cambodia

I went to Cambodia with no real idea of what I wanted to do there. I had taken a flight from Vientiane Laos to Phnom Penh. All I knew is that I wanted to stay at a place called Eighty8 hostel and hang out at the Foreign Correspondents Club. I quickly heard of a place called Koh Rong. I was told that it was an island paradise like Thailand, but how the Thai islands were 5 to 10 years ago; quiet, clean and undeveloped. I was sold. I got the Phnom Penh sights out of the way and a few days later I was on a bus headed to what would turn out to be one of the best parts of my trip.

A little background of my time is South East Asia. I had met some fantastic people at the start in Thailand. We traveled much of the North and into Laos together. One quickly realizes that there are only so many places to go and see in the compact area that is S.E. Asia and you end up running into the same travelers quite often. I ended up keeping in touch with a handful of the people I had met. Graham, a Canadian, was one of those people. He was a fantastic traveling partner. Adventurous, fun and entertaining.

I had traveled to the island alone and spent six days taking in the sun, surf and food. I would wake up and swim, eat breakfast, and read. The nights consisted of chatting with other travelers, and drinking beer while eating BBQ by the fire. After six days, I was getting ready to leave when I got a message that Graham, Brittany and Nadja were on their way to the island. It was settled, I had to stay.

Graham, an avid scuba diver, waxed poetic about the places that he had dived and the ocean life that he had seen. It sounded magical. The four of us were suntanning on the beach when we spotted a sign and a couple of suntanned beachheads. Try Scuba for free. It was a done deal. The girls and I gave it a shot and as soon as my 15 minute dive was finished, I knew that I would not be leaving the island until I was certified…

Poland, humble beginnings of a journey

These photos are from Warsaw Poland. I had just left Canada after spending Christmas and New Years there (with a brief jump to the Dominican Republic for Amie and Clayton’s wedding) This was really what I considered the start of my trip even though I had been on the road for six weeks already. Despite the repeated jet lag of long term travel, I had no problems getting motivated to go out and shoot. After all, the temperature was a good 25’C warmer than Saskatoon. The snow in the photos should be a good indication of just how cold Saskatoon was while I was there.

I feel that it takes a special kind of person to travel long-term. Packing away everything and living out of a backpack is both liberating and scary. This was not my first time doing it, not my second, not my third. It is something that I quickly became addicted to. I love the feeling of being on the road with no destination or plan in mind. For this trip, the furthest that I planned was booking a ticket to Warsaw, after that I let current situations and feelings dictate the course that my trip would take.

The details. All shot with a Leica M2 with either a Voigtlander 35 1.4 or a nikkor 50 1.4 on Kodak Tri-X, developed in D76 1:1.

Still Alive and On The Road

This leg of the trip will be winding down soon. I am now in Vietnam and have a couple or three weeks here. Next it will be Hong Kong to get my Chinese documents in order and then return to my adopted country. I think I’ll do some traveling there as well if I can. […]

This leg of the trip will be winding down soon. I am now in Vietnam and have a couple or three weeks here. Next it will be Hong Kong to get my Chinese documents in order and then return to my adopted country. I think I’ll do some traveling there as well if I can. I’d like to grab my 4×5 camera and head out to Guilin and that area for some large format photo fun. Then I have an epic battle of developing all of the film that I shot on the trip, which is less than I was expecting. I managed to keep a good balance of non-photo fun in the trip so I didn’t live life 100% behind the camera.

Goodbye Canada

Please forgive the crappy quality of the pictures in this post, they were taken with my ipod.
