There’s been a lot on the news recently about Burma in relation to the protests, but very little about the atrocities that have been happening there for years. I get the impression that the government have done an amazingly good job of stopping the news getting out of the country. While there, you somehow learn […]
These photos on the BBC website do a good job of making the situation more ‘real’. Having been there and met Burmese people, it truly saddens me to think about this happening. I’ve chosen my words carefully here and i can honestly say that without exception we did not meet an unpleasant Burmese person. Everyone […]
It’s been reported today that monks in Burma have taken to the streets for the 4th day in row. Thankfully, it’s also been reported that the military junta are not planning to repress the protests. Thousands of civilians have been taking to the streets to walk with the monks, and protect them should the government […]
Burmese monks have taken to the streets in huge numbers across the country this week. It’s been reported that over 5000 at a time have staged peaceful protest marches across Burma’s biggest cities.

Our band’s called XS Energy but we’re not wearing costumes so that we can roam around all the other bands to take pictures etc – if we had costumes we would have to […]
My well-informed friend Suzy told me last night that there’s going to be a total lunar eclipse tonight! A solar eclipse is where our moon is directly in line with the earth and blocks our view of the sun, a lunar eclipse is where they are all in line again, but the earth is blocking […]
A bit of a cheerier note after the last post…some pictures of the Scottish Parliament, which after initial dislike, is a rather amazing building. Would recommend everyone to go and check it out, watch the debate (if it’s not too dull), or go on the weekend so that you can take some photos.
Two of my photos have recently been used by the exclusive bespoke travel company Remote Lands. The first is the cover shot for their upcoming ‘Cuisine and Culture’ trip around Asia in 2007, and features as the first photo displayed on the website, and the cover shot on the print version of the brochure. The […]
