  • Last Flight Out Photography!

    I get this question a lot..."Scotty, why Last Flight Out Photography?".

    Well, let's say you are on a trip to some exotic location like....uh....Iceland, for example. There are three flights heading home on the last day of your trip...one in the morning, one in the afternoon, and the last flight leaving just after dinner. Which one do you choose? If it were me, I would choose the Last Flight Out because I want to spend every last minute I can getting just ONE more shot....know what I mean?

    This blog/website highlights my favorite photographs from trips I make around the world. There's nothing I love more than sharing my passion for photography.

    I am a High School Photography Teacher at the Jakarta Intercultural School in Jakarta, Indonesia. If you are ever in this part of the world, give me a call, and we can go out shooting together. Thanks for visiting my site, and please come back again and again...

Sorry For This Site Going Down (AGAIN)

I don’t seem to learn. I am reminded by one of my faithful readers, (Kes Klare) every year that my site has gone down because my domain name has expired. It happens on January 11th, and I ALWAYS forget until I got to my site, and get the dreaded message that my domain has expired. I paid the 15 bucks, and then have to write to Blue Domain to tell them I have paid my bill, and to make my site active again. So there you have it. Thanks, Kes, for the reminder every year!

Today’s Photo

I gotta admit…I am a bit embarrassed how long it has been since making my last post. May I use the excuse, “I have been super busy”? Pretty lame excuse, actually. I mean it doesn’t take that long to make a blog post…but, I am going to stick with the lame excuse.

I am still editing my Myanmar photos, believe it or not. So, here is another I edited tonight.

Most of the Buddhas at Bagan have been rebuilt. Apparently, many of the originals were either destroyed during the many earth quakes that have haunted Bagan over the years or stolen from poachers who sell the old Buddhas to creepy black market folks. For some reason, this one is one of the originals, and it was a cool one.

I had a great deal about Inle Lake. If you google photos of Inle Lake, you will get mostly photos of the people fishing. The fishing technique is unique, but Inle Lake has so much more to offer than just its fishermen. I thought it would end up being my least favorite destination in Myanmar, so I only scheduled a day there. As it turns out, it was by far my favorite destination in Myanmar, and wished I had a couple more days there. The place is totally unique. I didn’t see any cars. Only boats. People literally live ON the water… they get around by boats and their houses are built on stilts. It’s kind of like the “Venice of the East”. Totally cool. When I get some more photos processed from there, I will publish them.

Some Boats

I loved the boats. These two shots are my favorite of the boats…
