    Asian Images

    Since most of my photos are taken in Asia, I thought that it might be a good idea to start a thread for Asian images. Nothing wrong with the Nikon forum where I've been posting photos for a couple of years now, but I don't really care what kind of hammer the carpenter who builds my house uses, as long as the end result provides shelter for me and... my cameras

    And that goes for photos as well I believe, more or less. So here we go, with a portrait of a real Siamese sailor, taken on a supply boat somewhere out in the Gulf of Siam.

    D80 with 80-200 AF-S @ 200mm and f/3.2

    Great idea for a thread. Here are some of mine:

    From Kowloon, looking over the water at the Hong Kong Island skyline:




    From Sihanoukville, Cambodia:





    From Bali:





    From Osaka, Japan:




    And there's a lot more (especially from Japan) on my flickr:

    That's a beautiful shot from Cambodia, Ray.

    Kiri, the Hong Kong night skyline is a classic. I wonder why many times I've been standing there cursing myself for not bringing a tripod.

    And of course, the longnecks of Mae Hong Song

    Shot 15 years ago on an Olympus C-2020 which I think was a mighty 2mp job!

    Canon 5D - 17-40 L

    Considered a delicacy in Siem Reap, Cambodia these "edible" spiders are actually poisonous but de-fanged prior to cooking! Offered to tourists at the overland stop.

    I settled for a bag of crisps!

    Street urchins Angkor Wat Siem Reap Cambodia.

    These kids are amazing. No schooling whatsoever; but take the little girl at the front: 8 years old and her sales pitch is to question where you are from and then she'll reel off the population, currency and capital city. I tried her on 6 different locations and she was bang on. The irony is they can all do it and usually in 7 different languages as well.

    This shot cost me $12 dollars ($2 each) and, entertainment wise, was worth every dime.

    Amazing Country and the friendliest people I've ever encountered.

    ReeRay: Both are excellent photos. I'd go for the chips too. The portrait of the kids is great. Nice close framing with the melons off to the side.

    For those of you who think you have a job that is too hard, here's a soft alternative

    D300 with 70-300 ED @ 300mm and f/8



    Or you can just go for a ride...
