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.

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.
Near Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
My bus from Dar es Salam broke down 3 times on the way to Arusha near Kilimanjaro. A couple of local boys at a road side village while waiting for the driver to fix the bus.

One of the local ladies selling hand made scarfs and blankets.
This photo was take on the Tazara Express on a 48 hour train ride from Lusaka in Zambia to Dar es Salaam In Tanzania. He was one of my neighbors on the train and i caught this photo of him sitting in the floor in the train looking up at his mother who was eating a plate of fried goat.
Taken at the end of a long morning of taking photos along the Ganges river. He was playing out on the steps of his fathers shop. My battery died before i could get a photo of him with his eyes open.
Adjustments: Small chair removed in photoshop to give the effect of Alex floating in mid air.
The salt flats are a great place for taking strange photos. I had my friend Alex sit on a picnic chair and pretend that he was doing sit ups in the air.
Near Lima in Peru
My fiend Alex walking through the desert on the west coast of Peru just a few hundred miles north of Lima. We stopped on the side of the road and climbed to the top of a 1000foot sand dune. At least it felt like it was 1000ft.
