Published Photographs: Essaouira Edition

These photographs have appeared in travel guidebooks and magazines. What places could you return to again and again?

Advertising Mekong Delta Style

It’s refreshing to see grass roots advertising in a world dominated by corporate logos and tag lines. You won’t see the latter in the floating markets of Vietnam’s Mekong Delta.

Rather than compete with the sound of the engines of their boats by shouting out what is for sale, vendors place goods on the end of a bamboo pole. All manner of produce are artfully positioned on boats, which often double as homes.

Happy New Year Times Square Style

Wishing you a healthy, happy and prosperous 2013. May your year also be filled with wonderful travels.

This photo was taken shortly before midnight from the rooftop of Times Square Studios where I had the good fortune to ring in the New Year with family and friends and a million happy people.
