Littler Chow seem to have gotten more used to dogs and cats, especially those smaller than him. I have been encouraging him to interact with them. More updates at @littlechows
Conversation with Little Chow.
‘Papa, the dog is like me!’
‘What do you mean? You are both small and cute?’
‘He is wearing a hat just like me.’
‘That’s called a hoodie, and you are right.’
‘Hat.’ A solo mini adventure with Littler Chow.

It’s llama, littler chow and le father. More updates on this trip at @littlechows
Littler Chow went to the highest he has ever been, at 4506m, without supplementary oxygen, albeit with cable car support. That’s higher than his sister’s 4000m in the Himalayas, but she did walk most of the way.
It is amazing how the Chinese touristy spots have been engineered for the maximum number of tourists to enjoy some of these remote sites, and to squeeze all the revenue they can. Almost every tourist here is armed with a oxygen bottle (the amount of rubbish is staggering), and you can even purchase freshly made pop corn while you enjoy the sights.

I did, and the view tasted crunchy and amazing.
This would be so different compared to Nepal which I am more used to, and of course the experience a lot more authentic.

More updates at @littlechows Littler Chow chose this breakfast spot so we can stare at the dog and eat baozi.
Conversation with Littler Chow. ‘The owner of the shop told me the dog is only 2 years old.’
‘I am 3 years old.’
‘Yes, but look how big the dog is!’
‘Yes, but I am a bit older. I also know how to use chopsticks.’ #littlechows #3yearsold #d850

What a pleasant surprise! The fish Equivalence series by @chow_and_lin has been awarded the award for Excellent Nature Ecological Theme Work at the Xishuangbanna Foto Festival.

While Littler Chow wonders what the hell is going on.

Littler Chow spent the entire morning staring at 3 cats in a cage. Conversation with Littler Chow. ‘What were they doing the whole morning?’
‘I don’t know.’
‘Were they sleeping?’
‘No.’
‘Were they doing nothing?’
‘They were just shitting and xuxu.’ (more regular updates on this at @littlechows

I am looking forward to this. 8 day solo trip with Littler Chow!
Conversation with Littler Chow.
‘Plane, plane, plane, plane, plane!’
‘Yes, this is an airport, so there are planes.’
‘Plane, plane, plane, plane, plane!’
‘Good. I am glad you are excited. You don’t have to say plane plane plane even when we are in the air.’
‘Plane, plane, plane, plane, plane!’ #littlechows #3yearsold #nikon #d850

I guess this is a Light Christmas. After 8 years of using the Elinchrom system, I have made the decision to switch to Profoto.
I have been immensely impressed with their offerings to the photographer who needs to travel round the world and keep their baggage compact and lighting sophisticated. Their latest B10 and A1 lights completely blown me away.
They have always been the lights to rent when my production sets become bigger. Switching all my lights allow my system to integrate easily with more complicated location shoots.
Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post, and I paid for the Profoto system myself. However, I did interact with Profoto's T. Bùi, Flora Chen and members of the Profoto China team prior to making this decision.
I am quite sure it is the Light decision. @profotoglobal #d850
