Bangkok is stoic and epicurean.  Graft and floods are counterbalanced by a constant parade of beautiful […]

    Off to Iceland

    Off to Iceland

    Jennifer Wu and I leave for Iceland tomorrow to lead a joint photo tour. She is the energizer bunny so I’m confident the clients will return home with a trove of images and severe sleep deprivation. We go to the Golden Circle, into interior, along the southern coast and to the ice lagoon. Before we […]
