  1. The Corona Diaries - February 16th

    16 Feb 2020
    The Neighborhood I wrote a bit yesterday about the propaganda we’re seeing in our neighborhood. I’m talking mostly about those ubiquitous yellow on red banners, typically strewn with party slogans or an array of encouraging, uplifting messages. I have to admit I find them very effective in our current situation.…

    Boredom Sets In  It’s only day three for me and the boredom is already setting in. Remember, Lily and Jia have been cooped up inside for just over three weeks and as a result, our apartment  is immaculate. You can only clean a house in so many ways but these…

    The Supply Run - or Life Without Bacon I slept nearly 12 hours last night. I usually wake up a few times a night but not last night. I went to bed about 11:30 and didn’t move until around 4:30. I woke up just long enough to check the time,…

    The Corona Diaries - Something Overlooked A few days ago I remember reading an article about how the Wuhan Coronavirus was affecting Thailand and how many Thai nationals were complaining about foreigners not taking proper precautions, in particular not wearing masks. I’ve been looking for that article today (can’t find…

    The Corona Diaries - Cancellations and the Fallout My plan to get back to China keeps changing, evolving, mutating if you will. I was originally scheduled to fly from Calcutta to Kunming on the 9th and then take a high-speed train on to my adopted hometown of Liuzhou. I got…

    The Corona Diaries - I am a Crazy Man Over the past few days I’ve been called a lot of things, including crazy, foolhardy, stupid, careless and my own personal favorite, “a total dumbass”. The list is growing. I have to admit that all these adjectives could aptly apply to…

  8. Brief but Spectacular

    23 Sep 2019
    For photojournalists around the world it has become increasingly difficult to do their jobs. In fact, with magazines and newspapers laying off photographers in droves, it’s become difficult just keeping a job, let alone finding one. The common thought among the bean counters of the publishing world is that real…
