Empire State Building Tour

The Empire State Building, originally uploaded by Davepix.

What a view!   I had a really neat assignment to photograph the Empire State Building for the real estate section of a magazine a while back.  Bonus Feature: a two-hour tour of the building from the sub-basement to the antennae six stories above the publicly-accessible-by-ticket observation deck. The elevator car looked as it did seventy or so years ago, only now it was coated in fifty layers of paint.

So here’s my touristy version. The actual photo printed was something I shot from the street before the tour.  The experience was well-worth the editorial rate on this one.

Night market in Bangkok

Wandering in places where I stand out like a sore thumb late one eve, on a three day layover with intent to acclimate on the way to China. Somewhere between tourist destinations maybe wondering if it would be a good idea to be able to speak a few words of Thai. If only I had enough time to get over what I would get eating the stuff in this market I might have been more adventurous. Instead I stuck to things that were fried and drank bottled beverages. Nice that beer is one of those things.
