My time here in Asia is about to end, it saddens me down to the bone. But I tell myself that I'll return, I must, it's part of me now. Though, I'm an outsider here and will always be, I'm confortable with that, unlike my home country, Guatemala, where I'm treaded as an outsider even though I'm part of it. That aside, these 5 months have been an education to my photography, from the batu caves of Malaysia to the summit of Agung and into the temple scapes of Bagan and Angkor, I've been incredibly lucky to not just travel to these places but to be educated in photography in the most incredible places of the world.
I come from a small town though I'm blessed to have a family that loves me and wants me to get the full experience of life. I've also stopped drinking It will be 4 months on the 19th. I've finally found out what I'm actually interested in in photography, well just re-assured myself, I want to show you that we are all human, fun and fearful. I learned to do HDR, which I though I would never do, in Bagan (worth it).
I also met loads of people that have inspired me! Got a DD from these travels (that made me insanely happy, points to KL for that one).
It is with a sense of mixed accomplishment that I'm leaving Asia, I still have a week here, but I'll be hustling and bustling from monday on.
So here the definite collection of the pictures I've liked so far (still have a week).
