Lao New Year 2008 – Wat Pothisaram – Conley, GA

Lao New Year 2551 (2008) | Wat Lao Pothisaram | Conley, GA For those of you whose photographic or cultural interest has been piqued by my photos, I do have to say that almost all of my work deals with beauty–the surface kind. It’s just a natural tendency of a creative person, or actually of anybody […]

Atlanta Model/Photo Meetup

Photos from the recent Atlanta Model/Photography Meetup | May, 2008. Been meaning to come out for a shootout for some time, but they’re always on a weekend, and of course I’m always goofing off on those days. Everyone did a great job, and it was fun shooting with people from different backgrounds and skill levels.  I know we’re […]

New Orleans

The weather was incredible in New Orleans.  While we were playing frisbee at Audubon Park, there was a very nice wedding taking place across the street at Loyola University.  Hopefully the people didn’t mind us taking a few shots.  The wedding party or bride didn’t arrive in a streetcar though, which would have been quite […]

Photos: Macon Cherry Blossoms

Macon, Georgia is one of the cherry tree capitals of the world.  If you guys go down now, you can still catch the beauty of the city, with nearly every single block covered in the distinct white and pink blossoms.  If only the city of Atlanta adopted an urban renewal plan that reflected the South’s original […]

LAS Fundraising Ball Photos

Of late I’ve been trumpeting the struggles of artists, but trying to promote respect for and a better understanding of my Laotian culture and heritage is also difficult. Laotian refers to the many groups of people from the small country of Laos (silent “S”).  Lao refers to the main spoken and written language as well […]

Happy Leap Day

If anyone wonders where these “exotic” locations are, the pix were taken, ahem…in front of a Mexican Restaurant, an office building, and in front of a Wendy’s!  🙂

Photos: Sugar Bowl – Hawaii vs Georgia

Nice to see the streetcar running in NOLA again. The Hawaii fans had such a huge showing that they could have won the game on spirit alone.  When it came to cheering, the Hawaii Warrior dance team really had some moves. Even when the game was well out of reach at 41-3 in favor of UGA, the […]

Photos: Import Fashion

Drove all the way to Raleigh to hang out at an Import Fashion event.  6 hour drive, but I really like road trips.  Gives me time to think (…yes i think too much…) and listen to music.  Sorry there aren’t too many photos of the cars, it was ridiculously cold outside. Be sure to check […]

Photos: Alexandra Bounxouei

Got a chance to see Alexandra Bounxouei when she performed in Murfreesboro (Nashville), TN this past weekend.   Seems like pages always have to mention it, but she’s Bulgarian/Lao, and is quite popular at the moment.  She sings quite well, plays the violin, speaks alot of languages, and also stars in a Thai television show.  And seeing how […]

Photos: Speedlight in a Softbox

Learned a thing or two in Miami and got a chance to try it out with my own setup.  Thanks to others on the web, it’s quite easy to shoot using a remote speedlight (a flash) in a softbox. Now granted, these shots will never compete for any covers anytime soon, but I think it’s so cool that the technology […]

Photos: Boston

…………You know…………there’s more to me than drawings and photos of pretty girls………… I had a chance to finally view Jack Silberman’s very moving film on unexploded bombs in Laos.  The film is called Bombies, and everyone should really check it out.  What’s that information doing on my page, a journal that supposedly only focuses on my random […]

Photos: Miami

Miami was a fun but really expensive city. Went down there and saw how a professional photographer shot in an environment just made for photos. I was actually more amazed at his story, a model in the 1980’s, turned house music DJ, to photographer. The photos that I took (leeched) off the side should hopefully […]

Atlanta Dragon Boat Festival 2007

Hong Kong Association Dragon Boat Race and Festival September 8, 2007 | Olympic Venue, Clark’s Bridge, Lake Lanier It was another fun all day event at the boat race. I remember some of the past ones being rather tame, and to be honest, in the last few years, the increased Laotian participation has made it quite festive, with […]
