I like monkeys

We just got back from Zanzibar and I posted a couple of photos on my facebook page. Those monkeys crack me up.

Some Bangkok photos

A small page with a handful of our photos from Bangkok. We did something different on this trip. Normally we each have an SLR. This trip we shared one SLR. So some of these are mine, some of these are Kaddee’s. The Wat Arun photos are definitely Kaddee’s photos. The rest, who knows.

Photos from Paris

Yeah, it has only been a month and a half. It is hard to find time to process the photos. Here are a dozen or so of my favorites.

I’m going to Memphis, Memphis….

Medinat Habu photos

A set from Medinat Habu. This temple is interesting for a couple of reasons. it is not heavily visited. No crowds! It is very well preserved. The colors on some of the carvings are still intact and then are pretty spectacular Trying another one of photoshops web formats. I can’t find one that lets me [...]

A few photos from our trip at Christmas to Luxor

I am trying something new. I am using the web page generator from PhotoShop to create a Flash based web page. Here it is. If you love it, hate it or tolerate it, let me know. Trying to decide if I will switch to a new presentation format or not. Thanks

Abu Simbel already?

Gee. Has it been 2 months since we were in Abu Simbel? And still no post. I slack, therefore I am. We went to Abu Simbel in “the convoy”. [They even had a bear in the air] For “safety” reasons, all tourists are required to ride in a convoy between Aswan and Abu Simbel. [Between [...]
