School boys at Qutb Minar, India
These children came over to chat as I took a break from the hot sun. They asked where I was from and I asked about their school and field trip - and then I asked if I could take their photo.

A Young Nun in Mingun, Myanmar
This young girl was playing with a toy top near the bell in Mingun. After a few moments of watching the top spin and exchanging smiles, I motioned to my camera. She took the top in one hand, sat up and posed for me.
Snowy sheathbill in Neumayer Channel, Antarctica
Don't let the immaculately white Snow sheathbill fool you. It is notorious for a couple of unpleasant reasons. Happy to capture this shot and walk away with a clean face.

Giza pyramids, Egypt
Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet
Even more stunning than expected. The Dalai Lama's Winter Palace as seen from my hotel's roof. I started the day with a big headache despite taking medication. Knowing I needed to acclimatize to the altitude (11,975 ft/3650 m) before exploring, I tried to rest but I was just too excited and found myself on the hotel's roof for a look over Lhasa.
