Don Det Riverboat

Don Det Riverboat

This is taken in one of my favorite places in Laos. Don Det is a small island and is part of an area known as 4000 Islands. Except mostly people ignore the rest of them. This photo is taken from a bridge that goes to Don Khon, the island immediately south of Don Det. I probably could have spent an entire day photographing from and around this bridge, but I guess I was just too lazy to put that much effort into it. Just being honest.

I used Macphun’s Tonality CK to do the black and white conversion to this image. If you have read this far I suggest you click on the Tonality CK link and get a demo version of the software. Or better yet buy the whole damn suite. By using the link to buy the software I get a wee bit of money. And boy do I need the help right now if I am going to continue traveling. I mean I really am working on a tight budget, but after posting photos for 9 months straight I was hoping to be making at least a few dollars a month. But chances are great that no one has read this far.


Of course I also put the link in the article to help with Search Engine Optimization. Not that doing so has helped me one tiny bit so far. The search engines pretty much skip my blog even though I add new content each day, and I have registered with them to allow them to crawl my site. I mean WTF? How does a person get more of an audience? Cross posting to facebook sure isn’t doing shit. Again, if anyone reads this far please send me a private message on FB. Because I’m really beginning to wonder why I even bother anymore.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at and writing about my experiences at
