Adjustment: Photo black and white with the lama leash and the bubbles colorized.
The town square in Bogota.
Beunos Aries, Argentina
Taken near the San Telmo Antiques Fair at Plaza Dorrego where the streets are closed off on Saturdays and Sundays for the arts and crafts market, a great place for people watching.
The beaches in Zanzibar are incredibly photogenic and often a good place for people watching.
I took this photo at the Bolivia/Peru border in the Andes mountains next to lake Titicaca. The bowler hats are one of the most important items in a Bolivian woman's wardrobe.
This photo was taken in the early hours of the morning (6:00am) just as the sun was rising across the Ganges river. I rented a boat and sailed up the river using my zoom lens to capture some candid shots of people bathing and going about their daily routine.
The final match at the end of a long weekend of Sumo in Osaka Japan. The two Yokozuna ( top heavy weights) face off against each other in the final to decide the winner of the tournament.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
After a para glider or hang glider lands on the beach the equipment has to be checked and packed up for the long drive to the top of the 500 meter mountain over looking the beautiful city of Rio. This guy was straightening out the strings before he rolled it back up.
Hang gliders flying overhead near Ipanema beach in Rio.
Local hairdresser, that was working in the streets outside my hotel in Varanasi.
There are thousands of Indian locals and tourists that travel thousands of miles to spend time in the Holy City and bath in the Ganges. Varanasi is the oldest city in the world, over 5000 years old. A photographers paradise.
Adjustments: Background was blurred and changed to black and white to make him stand out.
Taken outside the Taj Mahal in India.
Even though the Ganges river is heavily polluted it is still used to do laundry.
Taken out behind the Taj Mahal. One of the local kids suggested that i take a photo of him and then pay him for it. He must have been spending some of his daily earnings on teeth whitening.
Dhobi wallahs (laundry men) doing the laundry in the holy Ganges river at sunrise at Assi Ghat
India is such a conservative country but the Ganges river in Varanasi is a place where most of the rules go out the window and where codpieces and g strings are common place. But only for the men not the women. There really is a new photo opportunity every minute in India.
I not exactly sure of the significant of the brass pots but i have read that they fill them with holy water from the river and take them to Hindu temples as offerings when they pray.
A different perspective. I place the camera on a towel on the salt put the bottle 2 feet from the camera while i took ten steps back.
Meditation at the Ganges river.
I saw this girl sitting at the Assi Ghat just as i left my hotel at 5:00am. This is also one of my favorites. I love being able to take candid shots of people when they dont even know you are there.
This was taken outside the monkey temple in Kathmandu. A local tea merchant making use of some recycled coke bottles.
Inside the monkey temple in Kathmandu, one of the young monks jobs is to make sure there are enough candles for people to light when they pray.
I took this photo at the Bolivia/Peru border in the Andes mountains next to lake Titicaca. These ladies were on their way to an after church drinking session at the local park. On Sundays afternoons they all stand around or sit on the grass and share large crates of local beer.
I shot this with my zoom lens from the roof of my hotel in Varanasi.
No real story behind this one. I was wandering through the streets of agra one evening looking for a place to eat. I saw this kid sitting in the driveway oh his house playing with a book.
