A couple candids from the private view of a photography exhibition titled “Adristorical Lands" at the 12 Star Gallery in London earlier this week. If you’re interested in some off-the-beaten-path holiday destinations — the exhibition is on display until the 8th November.

"Adristorical Lands is an EU-funded project that promotes the cultural values of the Adriatic territories, enhancing local identities and promoting tourism based on the appeal of historical villages, walled cities, castles and cultural sites" — 12 Star Gallery

Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia. Another one for the list of places to visit… For now it’ll have to be via Google Images

Here are some photos to keep you entertained in the mean time - http://timpho.to/TimPhotoStream - c/o iOS 6’s slick new Photo Stream feature

Þingvellir, Iceland - a week ago today…

P.S. You’d be forgiven for thinking that I had processed this shot with filters etc. But this is actually all natural like - or in the words of In Living Color: "Homie don’t play dat!"

On the road. I just couldn’t help myself whilst driving in Iceland…

Frozen Lake, Meðalfellsvatn, Iceland

I’ve been in Iceland the past couple weeks hence the lack of photos (on here at least ;)… I’ll post shots tomorrow. In the mean time, here’s a shot of some steamy icicles from a nearby geysir, not just any geysir - the original geysir in a place called Geysir!

I’m planning a 2 week trip to Iceland over New Year… Looks like it could turn out to be even more exciting than it already is: BBC News are reporting that an epic volcanic eruption is imminent / long overdue

Three of my shots (20x13” c-type photographic prints) from my recent trip to Vietnam are being featured in the "Material-Art (Trash-Art)" exhibition in Pisa, Italy this week c/o Art Caffe London

The full name, as far as I can make out is: Convegno Nazionale Sulla Sicurezza Nel “Sistema Rifiuti” 15th & 16th June 2011

Goats in trees, Morocco. Pretty surreal…

Buddhists carry candles while encircling a large Buddha statue during Vesak Day, an annual celebration of Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and death, at a temple in Nakhon Pathom province on the outskirts of Bangkok May 17. This year marks 2600th anniversary of Buddha’s enlightenment. The image was taken using a long exposure. (Source: The Big Picture | Chaiwat Subprasom | Reuters)

Sound artist, Laurent Jeanneau, is my new hero. Spending the last decade or so recording ‘traditional / world’ music in and around South East Asia, he has amassed a vast collection of fascinating recordings with the primary intent, not on documentation, but inspiration and source material for his own works

"By taking the listener to unknown remote regions of our planet and mixing it with contemporary electronic sounds, Laurent’s work as a collage artist becomes highly engaging, presenting an old world, an unknown world, and a place so far away from our cultural references that one has difficulty describing the sounds that they hear. Repeated listens only re-enforced the deep hypnotic vibes that, in my opinion, are unequalled in the so-called genre of ‘globe trotting psychedelia’." - Discrepant

Some beautiful examples of Ottoman architecture by Eduard Widmer, from the book Living Architecture: Ottoman by Ulya Vogt-Göknil (1966)
