Bali and the Gili Islands

Snapshots from the “Island of the Gods” and its beautiful little neighbour. From the rice fields of Canggu to the vistas of the Bukit Penisula, Bali for me was an eccletic mix of landscapes, colours and culture. The monkey forest in Ubud was a blend of the serene and chaotic where you had to maintain a vigilant guard against mischievious little primates. Just getting to Ubud was testament to the constant surprises waiting around every corner of the island, as we found ourselves riding in the middle of a Hindu precession which we traversed for over a kilometre before seeing the...

Photo Competition

Runner up in Lonely Planet’s “Winter from your Window” photography competition   This photograph was captured from my balcony in Sihanoukville (Cambodia) one evening as a storm rolled across the coastline. In typical Cambodian monsoon fashion the storm put on an impressive lightning display before passing through less than 30 minutes later. I subsequently entered this photograph in the Lonely Planet “Winter from your Window” competition as a ‘left-field submission’ and was pleasantly awarded a runner-up...

Cambodia

Photographs from the the heart of the majestic Khmer empire to the raw and relatively untouched beauty of the Sihanoukville coastline. Siem Reap was mesmering with its scale and grandeur of Angkorian stone structures and their symbiotic co-existance with the encroaching jungle surrounds. Settings that I was fortunate to have enhanced by foliage made vivid by the monsoon season rains and recent floods. A world of contrast from the more sombre recent history of the capital Phnom Penh and the harrowing events that shadowed Tuol Sleng (S-21) Prison and the ‘Killing Fields’ of...

DJ 007 – A Sihanoukville Icon

A tribute to DJ 007 – one of Sihanoukville’s most loved characters. DJ 007 is an old Cambodian man who sells peanut filled nougat candy around Serendipity beach. He can often be seen riding a modified scooter complete with a custom made boom box blaring Khmer gangsta rap. DJ 007′s infectious catch cry calls of ‘Yo!’ combined with some bad-ass, crutch grabbing dance moves, always guarantee a smile on the face of his customers and onlookers alike.
