The Wandering Camel at the Taj

When wandering around the outskirts and wilds of the Taj Mahal, where no tourists can be found (you all know I am not fond of clueless tourists that use their flash when they are 500 yards from the subject… you all probably feel the same way!), I found this other wandering camel that stopped for a rest. I don’t know what all the brands on his neck are for – although I assume they denote ownership to the boy in the red’s family.

I would appreciate your vote for the 2008 Bloggies! I hope you vote for www.stuckincustoms.com in the "best photography of a weblog" category! :)

The Golden Ruined Temple in the Black Jungle

It took many more hours of sweaty hacking through the jungles of Cambodia to find this place, but it was well worth it. The temple was in worse condition than most of the others around Angkor Wat… although there was still plenty of great stuff to explore.

Also, a gentle reminder to vote for the 2008 Bloggies! I hope you vote for www.stuckincustoms.com in the "best photography of a weblog" category! :)

Vote for Bloggies and New Image on Getty!

It has once again come that time of the year to vote on the Bloggies! Please vote for www.stuckincustoms.com in the “best photography of a weblog” category! :) If you remember, last year, I lost to the Flickr Blog, which is now my mortal enemy. I think it is a ripoff that they won… I think the name “Flickr” got them most of the way there. The blog itself is not even updated that often.

When you vote, you will have to nominate at least 2 other blogs in other categories for your vote to count. I chose techcrunch.com and kotaku.com, as well as a few others I normally visit.

Also, on another note, Getty has added another one of my images to their collection, so you may see it show up on a billboard, the side of a bus, or perhaps printed on the wrapper around the new Hong Kong burrito eggroll from Taco Bell.

The Breakers Hotel

It’s just slightly nicer than the Motel 6 way down the road, and they even let you play soccer there in the grass.

I was lucky that it was very stormy there and the rain let up right at dusk.

The Boy at the Temple

Outside the gates to Fatehpur Sikri, an Indian boy waits to take my shoes. I pay him a few rupees to keep track of them for me. I walked several miles in bare feet inside and quickly discovered why everyone has such dirty feet. It’s always been a pet peeve of mine, but, like dropping your keys in a river of lava, I just had to let it go.

Downtown Austin at Night

They say the Frost Tower in the background looks like giant glowing nose hair clippers. From another angle, they say it looks like a huge owl. Who is this “they”, anyway?

Dress Shopping on the River

I bought a lot of stuff I may not have needed and ate a lot of fruit that would have been better off uneaten…
