May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month here in good old Georgia. Thanks to the city of Dunwoody for hosting a small pop up event that allowed our girls to showcase their talents and passion for their heritage. Dinner was at the new Tum Pok Pok off Buford Hwy near City Farmer’s Market. Pretty […]
Today I made a “fake” Travel Magazine featuring Lao/Thai/Khmer New Year!! Alas, this year there’s nothing of the sort. Oh well, hope everyone is sitting safe in their homes watching some good movies.

A really hot June Sunday at the Thai Temple in Decatur, with a gathering of 100+ monks for a rare ceremony, the consecration of the ubosot, and the burial of the 9 boundary stones. It was a full weekend, with Thai Classical dancing, alms giving, and free food for all prepared by many volunteers from Buddhist temples ranging from Ohio to Florida.

Notes: I never went to photojournalism school to learn my photography. So in that way, I don’t have the code in which most of those types of shooters live by, the presenting of images unedited, without personal bias. I don’t know if I could live by that photojournalistic prime directive. I guess you could say […]
Random Notes: All the times I’ve been to Louisiana, and I always thought New Iberia was only an hour and a half from New Orleans, where I usually stay. I goofed big time, as it is a looong 2.5 hour drive. This led to some crazy drowsy late night driving for me. On the actual […]
