Something Old / Something New

Well….. here we go….again.  I’m not much of a blogger, but I’ve decided to give it another shot.  Nothing mind-blowing, just a paragraph or two, here and there.  So a new blog starts with an old photo.  While I took this portrait of a Kazakh eagle hunter in western Mongolia in 2002,  I still hear about it on almost a weekly basis.   Which is cool, but I am always reminded what a bit of luck it was that I even took this image.  Our van broke down.  Kids came on camels and took us back to their encampment.  I took this photo just before we left.  The image won that year’s National Geographic Traveller Contest.  My first real photography trip, my first ever photography contest.
