    Where would you like to go?

    Forbidden kingdom of Lo Mustang is my number 1 destination and I'm planning to do it in 2-3 years time. Just need to save wad of cash for permits and porters. Bhutan, Mongolia. Amazon tribes, few of the more remote and inaccessible islands in Indonesia. Iceland. Africa, no particular country there yet. I need to do more research. Next year it would be Europe, visiting the continent of my birth for the first time in 23 years.

    I can't figure out where to go for my fall vacation with the family. The options are:

    1. Guilin, China (landscape heaven)
    2. Pingyao, China (Ancient Chinese city, well preserved)
    3. Hong Kong, China (Been there 23 times...never tire of this great city)
    4. Bangkok, Thailand

    Bangkok is my personal preference, but the political situation there flares up from time to time, with lots of riots in the city. A shame, really.

    Most photogenic places that I have visited: Istanbul, small Thailand villages, and Morocco. Places I did not visited but I think they are photogenic - so they are in my list: India, central Africa, Georgia (country), Mongolia, Japan.

    one of the things that got me into large format photography was
    a course i took in college on armenian architecture ... ( they invented the free standing dome,
    built buildings out of tufa stone and carved / made ornate relief banding decoration on the buildings,
    and most likely had a huge hand in the construction of what is now known as hagia sophia &c )
    i also studied architecture and for almost 30 years i have photographed olde, historic, ruined buildings and archaeological sites foe work, and promised myself that someday i would travel to what is and used to be armenia with a 8x10 or bigger camera, hand coated paper and glass plates
    and photograph as many of these churches and monastaries as i could, before they were all gone, or the folks who are in charge of their well being dont allow the public to go there anymore &c. historically
    armenia was about 5-10 times its current size and went from where it currently is now, across anatolia to the persian coast. a lot of what used to be a vibrant collection of churches and monasteries ( like ani (the city of 1,000 churches), or the churches near lake van and countless others
    on mountain ledges, on islands, throughout the tigris / euphrates valley ) lay in ruins because a variety of things happened over the years
    that i really can't get into here in this post ( feel free to google it yourself if you are interested ).

    anyways, if i get bored outside my doorsep and photographing locally, clive, i wouldn't mind going over there .. before it's are all gone.

    Ani is on my list. I also want to do a rail trip following the Silk Road across China, then continue on into Kyrgyzstan to see Tash Rabat, then on to Tashkent, Samarkand, and Ashgabat. Maybe finish up at Baku in Azerbaijan.

    I would also visit Colombia, specifically Medellin, Bogota and Cartagena.

    Peru is next - can't make up my mind where I'd want to visit beyond the obvious of Qusco and Machu Picchu (I've seen and read about some pre-Inkan ruins on the north coast of Peru, and the Peruvian Amazon is another possibility.

    Switching focus, I'd also like to hit Eastern Europe - Budapest, Prague, Bratislava, Dubrovnik. I'm pretty sure I've gone over 10, but this is a fantasy list so I'm not worried about precision.

    India is a photographers dream land. It is impossible to imagine a more colorful country. Even the semi trucks hauling freight around the country are painted the most beautiful colors. And of course, the food there is just wonderful. But India is full of enormous poverty and that often gets right in your face in THE most unpleasant way. Very unpleasant.

    Japan is also incredibly beautiful. I'm not crazy about the food there so often starve, but there are enormous photo ops everywhere you go.
