Shameless Self-Promotion: Asian Geographic magazine

So apparently I'm not cut out for this blogging thing. An email from Google Apps recently appeared in my Inbox reminding me to renew this domain before it expires in mid-December. Has it really been a year? And what, only 1 or 2 real posts?  I'd love to abandon blogging but, since I actually fill in my occupation on forms and such as "writer", I really should be a bit more diligent about this writing thing. Thankfully, I do have some good motivation for a return to this blog: shamless self-promotion.

I have 3 photographs published in the "Sounds of Asia" issue of Asian Geographic magazine. Asian Geographic is an international magazine a print run of 76,000 copies per issue and subscribers in more than 50 countries. That means you can walk into a bookstore almost anywhere right now and buy a magazine with my photography in it!

In fact, in Singapore they they even carry Asian Geographic at 7-11. Needless to say it's been a fun month of walking into bookstores and magazine shops (I've personally checked in Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia) and making sure it's prominently displayed. My first time seeing the magazine I was actually on my way to Bali and bought it at the airport bookstore. I had my nose buried so deep in the magazine even as I was boarding the plane that I dropped and nearly lost my Singapore ID card...  Anyway, without further adieu, here are scans from the magazine:

This is definitely the photo I'm proudest of. I took about 10 shots of these traditional musicians at the Ramayana Ballet in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, and this was the only one that turned out!

Another photo from the same night - this time of the dancers. We had pretty good seats, but I still used a Minolta 100-200 F4.5 lens for this shot (thanks for the lens, Peter :)).

A last minute addition -- this one was taken in Kandy, Sri Lanka, during my October trip with Peter and his dad. Yes, it's from the famous Buddha Tooth Relic Temple.  I actually sent them another one that I thought was better, but this is the one they used -- and full page, no less!

So there they are, folks. Of course, my photography looks even better on the glossy pages of Asian Geographic magazine than these scans from my lousy all-in-one printer/scanner/copier. The magazine is available at all major bookstores in Asia, Chapters in Canada, and online!
