2016 In Retrospect (PART 2 – Siem Reap and Battambang)

I know it’s getting a bit late for 2016 retrospective posts, but I’ve been busy. Well, not really, but anyway… The second half of my trip let me tick one thing of the bucket list: see Angkor. And I figured if I’m gonna see Angkor, why not REALLY see it? So I contacted the APSARA […]

Saigon in the Round – Polar Panoramas

I’ve been sitting on these for a while, and I can finally share them with y’all… About a year ago I spent some time playing around making some polar panoramas using different locations around Ho Chi Minh City – others I’d seen online were just too cool for me to not give it a go […]

3 years today (or is that 7)?

Today is the anniversary of the day my wife and I tied the knot. While that was three years ago, our journey together actually began back in 2006. I’m not gonna really say much more – just gonna share some photos from the last 7 years with an amazing girl! From when we started going […]
