Street Performer – Cape Town, S. Africa

Cape Town just might be the coolest city in the world. Travel writers always describe cities as ‘vibrant,’ but in this case I think Cape Town defines the term. Because of the city’s location, Dutch & English ships have doubled the cape for hundreds of years, bringing with it European culture and food, and also […]

Angkor from a helipcopter

Above Angkor

I’ve been privileged to enjoy a host of unique adventures and cool experiences while living in Cambodia. One item, however, has remained stubbornly on my bucket list—in all my years here, I had yet to see Angkor from the air. Invariably, every time I fly out of Siem Reap, my seat is on the wrong […]

floating markets in Thailand

Another day, buying and selling on the water

I loved the floating market in Thailand. Thankfully it was less touristy than many markets nearby to Bangkok, and there were locals there in their boats, doing their morning shopping. We spent time walking around, down the narrow ‘klongs,’ and imagining what it must be like to grow up on the water and take a […]


Angkor and Ozymandius – The West Gate

“He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings…” Daniel 2:20 This is probably my favourite gate into the old city of Angkor Thom. It’s almost always deserted, and is incredibly atmospheric and mysterious. This was once the entrance to the downtown of the largest city in the world. Put in that […]

A village photowalk

Note: This is a blog which I originally wrote for our company blog, at You can access the original article here. The open-air market is teeming with early-morning life. It’s a photographer’s paradise—vibrant colors, morning light and shadow, exotic foodstuffs, interesting people, as far as the eye can see. Fish swim circles in metal tubs, […]


Sua Prat at night – Siem Reap, Cambodia

There were quite the New Year’s goings on this evening within the walls of the old city of Angkor Thom. I didn’t feel like shouldering a tripod on our moto, so I spun the ISO knob and rocked the handheld, like a novice. It was only my second time to see the temples lit up […]

hilltribe farm in northeast Cambodia

the winding road

The thatched hut of an ethnic minority farmer clings to the hillside of a cassava farm. This is Northeast Cambodia as it is today: the wild allure of virgin forrest replaced by a beauty more uniform, more cultivated, more agrarian.

Monsoons over the Rice Paddy

Monsoons in the Low Country

I’ve spent lots of time in the South of Cambodia over the last few weeks. Life is so different down there compared to the rolling hills of Ratanakiri. Endless rice fields and sugar palms as far as the eye can see, big white cows with humps on their shoulders, haystacks, and stately old wooden houses […]

Old tower in Kampong Cham, Cambodia

French Colonial Watchtower – Kampong Cham, Cambodia

This tower was built by the French in the early 1900’s to guard the river, presumably against invaders or pirates. It’s fascinated me ever since I was in high school. We first drove through Kampong Cham in 2001, and I couldn’t get over how stately and old-world the tower looked, perched on the edge of […]
