A fire breather in Khiva, part of a traveling circus from Ferghana, Uzbekistan. Organizing my archives and found this moment from one of my favorite trips of 2016

Sigiriya, Sri Lanka. Tearsheet from the March issue of Rhythms Monthly. Not too bad for a folding drone! #djimavic

Sigiriya, an ancient rock fortress in central Sri Lanka dating to the 4th century AD. The rock and surrounding area also housed Buddhist monasteries and dwellings up till the 14th century. The gardens around the rock are known as one of the best preserved examples of ancient urban planning. From a recent assignment for Rhythms Monthly. More #dronestagrams to come!

In transit

A mathematics coaching poster I saw in Colombo, Sri Lanka. When your child struggles with Math, maybe they need some Hogwarts-style magical discipline! #Colombo #HarryPotter #Snape

Nine moments from 2016 (ranked by an app based on 'likes'). Here's to an exciting 2017!

Calcutta, India

Visiting Kolkata - inevitable shot of Howrah bridge..

Evening falls on Andijan, Uzbekistan

‘Then shall my native city, Samarcanda…
Be famous through the furthest continents,
For there my palace-royal shall be placed,
Whose shining turrets shall dismay the heavens,
And cast the fame of Ilion’s tower to hell.’
Christopher Marlowe from 'Tamerlane'

Uzbek women say a prayer in the Tilya Kori Madrasah overlooking the Registan in Samarkand, Uzbekistan.
In case you were wondering, Ilion is another name for the ancient city of Troy. I definitely had to look that up.

Chorsu bazaar. Tashkent, Uzbekistan

Found a new use for the center pouch on my Newswear camera bag - it's large enough to carry a million Uzbek som, which is less than 200USD on the black market. Feels a bit illegal but it's quite common to carry around large bricks of cash here, with the overall weakness of the currency - further weighed down by the falling ruble - and the large gap between the official and black market rate. @newswear_bags #UzbekSom
