To Occupy Our Time

To Occupy Our Time

Everyone does it a little differently. Some get paid more than others. Others may love what they do more than some. Reguardless of what we are doing, chances are that its taking up a lot of our time. Being a “professional globe trotter” (Sims, 2014)  has afforded me some time to think about and witness how people spend their time so here are some images I have captured of the different strokes of the different folks around South East Asia (and one guy from New York.)

 

Louis the Chef. This is one of my favorite images in the last few weeks. Louis was a good friend I made in Vientiane, Laos.

Louis the Chef. This is one of my favorite images in the last few weeks. Louis is a friend I made in Vientianne, Laos. I’m pretty sure the secret ingredient in his Spanish omelet was love. Before he because a chaffing vagabond he was the frontman of a punk band in Spain so he is just an all around really cool guy.

A Man & His Chickens. This was one of the last photos thats I took before leaving the US. It was in Chinatown of NYC and this seemed like an appropriate time to share it

Safety regulations? In Thailand? HA! Just hop in the back and hang on.

The Thai are great at using the resources that are readily available to them, bamboo is a great example.

Being sucked into and consumed by work has scared me for the last few years, mainly because I have seen it drive people crazy or at the least make them unhappy, but if I were to take the liberty of calling my photography ‘work’ than I am a big fan of taking work home with me, and staying up all hours of the night and being an all around workaholic.
