Shots From Ubud

Our slow recovery from the depths of dengue has left the blog a little stale. Sorry about that. I hope these pictures of Ubud will help a little. Everywhere you look here, there is art. Folk art abounds. Nature is pretty striking here, too. As always, the people are fascinating, locals and tourists alike. Plus, […]

On Pause

10,625 km so far. We chose poorly. Hindsight, and all that, but we really shouldn’t have taken a rest day in Son La. The town offered little to entertain us, and our hotel was less than perfect. Yes, it had a beautiful view from the window, but the rice fields are awash with mosquitos, so […]

Memory Snaps

8486 km so far. Back on the G325 again today, with a busy boring ride to report. Of course, boring is relative, and in China, even on the G roads, nothing is ever boring for long. Can You Picture This? We see so many interesting things as we ride, it’s hard to describe them, or […]

Exploring Shanghai Suburbia

While Stephen was finishing up his last few classes in Shanghai, I decided to get out of the city centre and visit the water village of Qibao. Being only 30 metro minutes away from central Shanghai, Qibao is actually more of a water suburb than a village. I had read that one should under no […]

Night Time Is The Light Time

8,008 km so far. I hardly ever take my camera out at night. Why bother, right? It’s too dark to take pictures anyway. But, I’ve carried around my cool little Gorillapod for 8,008 km and rarely used it, so I thought I’d dust it off and get some practice shooting some of Shanghai’s famous (and […]

Do You Wanna Get High?

8,008 km so far. Shanghai used to be a city of long alleys lined with low townhouses called shikumen, each rising only two or three stories. These days though, architecture in Shanghai is all about looking up. Waaaay up. Since we’re currently staying on the 21st floor of an apartment building, I thought it would […]

Workers’ Playtime

8,008 km so far. This morning’s photo assignment, People At Play, was a tough one for me. You see, I hate to photograph people. Actually, that’s not true. I love taking photos of people I know, but I hate taking photos of strangers. It makes me feel intrusive and uncomfortable; I just don’t like sticking […]

Triple Toil And Trouble

8,008 km so far. Sick update: After two days of lying in bed, Stephen has had to get up and go teach today. He’s still hurting, but I think he’ll survive! Phew. Keen followers of this blog will notice that my ‘daily’ photo practice has gone slightly off the rails. The difficulties began with my […]

Architecture In Shanghai

8,008 km so far. Gazing up at the buildings of a city often fills me with the same kind of awe as standing at the foot of a towering mountain or looking out across the vast ocean. It’s not just the beauty of the stone, glass, and steel structures before me, but the history that […]
