The park, Ho Chi Minh City

As seen in the two previous posts, there are plenty of sights and views in Saigon – more “interesting” than “spectacular” – however what interests me the most in that city is simply to observe and capture simple moments of life. In many places, I’ve been threatened verbally for taking photographs of people. In my […]

Views from the top, Ho Chi Minh City

I am always drawn to high viewpoints, because they provide an entirely new perspective. The immediacy and chaos of the street immersion gives way to a more detached experience where greater urban patterns emerge. Just one decade ago, there were not too many high viewpoints available in Ho Chi Minh City, but since then a […]

Jackson, WY

This was taken across the street from the Anvil Motel. As Mike Cavaroc told me, their “Internet special” discount makes it the least expensive lodging in town. I spent my days in Grand Teton National Park, so I photographed Jackson at night. Turned out that everything in town looked better at night, even the iconic […]

Singapore

After scrambling to arrange transportation in Penang, and then Melaka, things went more smoothly for Singapore. Upon arriving at the bus station in Melaka City, I promptly bought tickets for the next day from one of the many companies providing service to that major city-state. Singapore is known for its strict laws. At the immigration […]

Melaka, Malaysia

Melaka being a popular tourist destination just two hours away from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital, I expected it to be a breeze to book bus transportation, but it turned out not to be the case. First, you’d think that the area around the Jalan Petaling street would be full of travel agencies, but I managed […]

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I had initially planned to travel by sleeper train from Penang to Kuala Lumpur. Making arrangements proved surprisingly difficult. None of the travel agents in town would handle train reservations. When I called the official railway office, I was told that reservations could be made over the phone only if the planned journey was at […]

Penang, Malaysia

Because of the weather in Ko Phi-Phi, I decided to shorten the stay in Thailand and spend more time in the cities of Malaysia. Rainy weather isn’t great for photographing (or even enjoying) tropical islands, but it doesn’t matter that much in a city, if you are concentrating on architecture and people. The next stop […]

New images: Florida cities

I’ve done quite a few trips to Florida in the past. Each time I concentrated on natural locations in South Florida. They are certainly exceptional, but represent only a portion of what the state has to offer. On my last trip to Florida, this October, I remedied this unbalance by visited mostly cities. I went […]

New images: Boston

I’ve updated my page of images of Boston with new images from March 2010. Boston was the first city in the US that I visited, two decades ago. Back in those days, as a computer scientist, we had frequent collaborations with the MIT where I came to give technical talks. About twenty images on the […]

New images: New Hampshire towns

I’ve posted new images of the towns of Portsmouth, Walpole, and Concord. Last March, I found myself again in New England. I had originally planned to travel in the mountains to photograph winter scenes. It turned out to be the warmest March on record. Places that were normally covered in feet of snow were dry. […]
