Well, thats handy.
Scene shops are wonderfully eclectic places where old scenery, parts and materials hang from every surface and and stud, piled in corners and buckets, where more time is spent finding a tool than using it.

This is one of those things where you say, "I'm in Thailand, so I better visit this stuff," but in practice, its like "yep, there it is"
Mangosteen. Perhaps the best fruit I've ever eaten. It taste like a mix of sweetest ripened mango and juiciest orange you can imagine. The skin drips blood red when peeled but the inner is firm and creamy.
Laos capitol city Arc de Triump. Note the women in the blue dress for scale. The interior looks like a parking garage with souvineer shops.

Vietnam is going through major growth and large scale infrastructural upgrades are the cornerstone thats linking their sprawl. This bridge officially opened a week later, but they were nice enough to open the gate so I could take a photo down the length of the bridge.
Roughly the size of Golden Gate park, this popular southern Thai island has exploded into a resort village catering to dive savvy backpackers with the hopes of citing a whale shark. 70mm F5.0 25seconds ISO400

Cinco de Mayo. The real question is: where do you find sombreros in the middle of Vietnam?
I was so miserable. I had just had the worste time motobiking/slushing as I walked along side my bike, in the dark through mud that would deflect off my front fender into my face.
I was a bit hysterical, determined to position my camera on this light fixture. Just before the shot snapped, it slipped and I quickly reached up to catch it. I feel like it genuinely captured my despair.
I had had a slough of mechanical problems, from simple flat tires to brake rod that coiled itself around my rear axle to a generator that had to be rebuilt...all in the same day. I had enough problems to turn my 1.5 day attempt to get to Hanoi into a 5 day hell.
With my appendages dangling from the top of this Eiffel tower, I relax and take in the view.

And then suddenly, in the middle of the serene dance duet, he had a mental breakdown and started beating the living shit out of her.
And ever since that day, despite its inconvenient cumbersome size, she would only wear a hockey goalies outfit when dancing.

Exploring Joshua Tree
Composition by Mike Coleman
Nestled in the Hollywood hills on streets that look similar to those in the Berkeley hills, sits a home with an unsuspecting world class sound mixing and recording studio across from the kitchen and down the hall from the dinning room.
I helped Mike record a interview with some of the industries best sound recording artist talk about their work on recent release of "The Fighter." That guy holding a mic boom over his head for an hour just out of the frame, oh yeah, thats me.
High up at Ceasar Palaces "Rain Man" Penthouse suite, helping Mike shoot for Dolby during the International CES (Consumer Electronic Show). Good people, views and food abound, plus a sneak peak at some incredible technology coming out.
See that smart phone on the coffee table, left? It's pumping out HD video and 5.1 Surround to that 60" TV. The future is now.
Here you go Michael.
