Chulu West, one step at the time

This was my last big adventure of 2014. I went on a bit unexpected climb of Chulu West (6,419m) in Nepal. Joined by Ngima Sherpa and Nurbu Sherpa I trekked the beautiful Manang Valley up to the base camp of Chulu West and attempted to summit the peak. Although unsuccessful, I had lots of fun on this trip and I came back with tons of memories and new experiences.

1st major mirrorless adventure trip

I am getting ready for my next adventure. My goal is to climb Chulu West peak (6,419) in Himalayas. I'll be on the road for 3 weeks and this is my first major trip without DSLR. Instead I'll be accompanied by mirrorless cameras. I admit it makes me feel bit uneasy but on the other side I am sure I will not miss the bulk especially in higher altitudes. If you ask why, have a read.

And in Phnom Penh again

After another long hot weekend spent in Phnom Penh I came up with set of few images taken around markets in city centre.  As always, markets are source of endless photography possibilities. For these I used 56mm lens (85mm on full frame) which is not considered a street photographer's focal length but what the heck. I do what I want to do :) So here they are. Hope you like them.

Bangkok rallies, November 2013

Shadow of former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra is still looming over Thai politics more that 6 years after he has been ousted from his post. He is currently in self-imposed exile as he faces corruption charges and jail in his home land.  His sister Yingluck Shinawatra, who is in power recently tried to pass an amnesty law that could have allowed his return. The attempt failed, but it provided fuel for the current protests shaking the capital. These are some shots I took during these demonstrations.
