Thailand or Bust
When the ginko leaves start to brown, you know it is about to get cold in Tokyo. With a long winter ahead, I usually daydream about hot weather, airplanes and Thai iced tea. I also dream about travel photography. Needless to say, I was ecstatic when Flash Light Expeditions invited me along to co-instruct their annual Thailand tour.
The Photo Tour
From the umbrella manufacturers of Bor Sang to the Loy Krathong Festival at Mae Jo, this expedition had something for every traveler. Participants from America, Malaysia, Vietnam, Korea and Holland battled through curry lunches, barbed wire fences, sweltering heat, massive crowds and an incident with chocolate milk to capture hundreds travel editorial images.
Thanks to all of the shutterbugs who came out for the tour as well as Southeast Asia Backpacker magazine and Flash Light Photography Expeditions for having me along. I look forward to seeing you at next year's Chiang Mai tour!
