I love to travel the world but I'm not one to stay with the tourist crowd. Going off the beaten track is better than scratching my head quizzically as I try and inspect a complicated map that I find out I'm reading upside down or following some tour guide around who shows you a city as if you've never seen cities before. Photo opportunities are tucked away in the small pockets of a city. Yeah, anyone can take a picture of a clock or a palace guard and stare in amazement at it, but aren't the most simple of subjects the better ones? Doesn't graffiti show something about the culture of locals? Doesn't a long line of bikes show how the locals live?

I could go on from some pathetic attempt at a philosophical point of view, but I'll leave it there. Here are two piece of my work.
