Uzbeks for the good of Phoenix

I want to tell you about some people I met this week. The very first evening I was introduced to them, they completely won me over with their gentleness, welcoming smiles, and quiet kindness. If ever anyone would have reason to be hardened by life, it would be these guys, and yet upon meeting them, […]

Recent events roundup: this week’s cultural diversity

The first was a multicultural expo held locally, and while, to be honest, I generally hate fairs, carnivals, or basically anything where there are “booths,” there was one thing about this day that absolutely blew me away. It’s called […]

Just Like Old Times

I’ve just returned from an incredible time in Santa Fe, where I spent a week learning new skills, spending time with outstanding people, and doing things I never thought I’d do. I’ve been learning a unique photographic process that I have come to absolutely love, and I’m thankful to my teachers and fellow students for […]

Vegas and Versace

Well, I’ve just returned from Photoshop World and I have to say that Ladakh to Delhi to Phoenix to Las Vegas in four days is kindof, ahem, insane. I spent three days mostly trying to hide in the hotel and conference center to shield myself from as much of Vegas as possible. I had a […]

Lumen Dei 2009 – Camels in the Sand

There’s a place in Ladakh, near Pakistan, known as the Nubra Valley. To get there, you have to drive on narrow roads full of switchbacks and steep dropoffs (without guardrails). That is, you have to drive through the Himalayas. Not to mention over Khardung La, the highest driveable road in the world. But once you […]
