This is an image I took in Yangon on my first trip here in 2009. At that time it was a closed, slightly oppressive place, with this dark and moody shot with these glimmers of light somehow a powerful metaphor for life at the time. It is a place that has kept drawing me back, and seven years later oh how the winds have changed. There's development, traffic, hope and opportunity for many, and I return each time fascinated to see what changes I will witness. Sometimes they're as minor as a garbage collection system now in place, or major like the use of ATMs and credit cards, and the arrival of KFC (the first multinational chain). Can't wait to see what Myanmar will surprise me with in the coming days. Do check out the @camerasforasia feed for other posts of the pending trip. #yangon #myanmar #burma #shwedagonpagoda #candles – from Instagram

I once was asked if I ever felt taking photographs meant I wasn't present in the moment. This one seems to sum up my answer of how it can be a way of engaging with it. Taken on the camino in Spain in 2014. #caminodesantiago #camino #spain #shadow #photography #letsgoeverywhere – from Instagram

You got to wonder how much the man seated on the front is blocking the driver's view but this of course is India, where almost anything goes. Jeeps loaded up like this were pretty common in Orissa where I visited late last year, also decked up for Diwali. #diwali #orissa #india #incredibleindia #lonelyplanet #keepontravelling #letsgoeverywhere #travel – from Instagram

A king parrot feasts on lychees at The Gap, Brisbane. I love our colourful birds and this one was happy for me to approach within a few metres while it enjoyed a tasty breakfast. #kingparrot #lychee #australia #exploreaustralia #thisisqueensland #brisbaneanyday #australialovesyou – from Instagram
