More perdy shit

I know, I am also tired of all these pretty images. Give me gritty 3rd world shitholes anytime, give me Tokyo underground death metal and october dark road travels in Eastern Europe anytime, give me offshore crude oil hellspots and blue-collar stench and I am seeing clearly again. Lacking the vision, temporarily one can hope.

These images from a weekend with one of my trusted Canon 5D's, it has mold between the sensor layers so I guess I at least got some defective and unclear "anti"self productive mood in there.

The national museum down here in the South. A beautiful and respected museum I later sent a letter of complaints to (as well as the Government Tourist Board) just because I felt like it.  Had to pay a 5 times more entry fee because I was a "westerner"…I don't even like "westerners"…neither! Man, just starting to fine tune my role as global-soul-grumpy-old-fart. Can't wait to be that crooked old grey demon all kids fear to meet on the way to school.

Loud Chinese people fire-cracking the shit out of (cool) this hill top temple in respect to… elephants (cool). Loudest wins.

Bye bye

Gonna grow me a mullet…shesh...

Nekko Power

These temple cats living a rather smooth lifestyle.

A forgotten Kaefer

I had a VolksWagen in Australia once, a bus though. Loved it...till the engine burned a couple of hours south of Sydney.

2 in a pipe

Moi / Chi

Never liked having my photo taken, but really do not mind bugging innocent good 'ol folks with my cameras up their faces though. Where is the best place to avoid being photographed? Yeah, behind the camera "hiding" in the viewfinder. These were taken by my wife which makes me happy cos the candid ones are the real deal, you don't want to see that crooked smile of mine. Maybe I should give her a new camera, she is using a taped-up old Canon pocket digital brother Markus threw away in Salt Lake City many years ago (Fried, and the local camera technician told him it was a classic case of f.u.b.a.r !), I took it to the Canon center in Tokyo when I came home and they fixed it in one hour, still ok as you can see.

Beach Bunnies


A white headed eagle, the sliver stash spirit, Harley fatboys on endless state highways, the Rockies in the background…Bump Ber car on tour. The grass is always greener on the other side.

Found this traveling circus/carnival group nomads in a corrugated shanty town a couple of weeks ago. Very sad and as always, circuses gives me the chill and pulls that dark and hopeless string of the mind. 

The Stimulator II

Stranded near the worlds 8th largest industrial zone. A true cancer producing tropical mess in the heart of South East Asia.

Don't linger in that water too long, its in our nature to fuck with nature. 


Like that Pink Floyd album cover of rain drops ( on car window in my eyes) at night. This being the Changmai cityscape from above. This the local Love birds dark fumbling hangout I realized.

So close but so far away...
