Ming hanging his grad show

It’s with a lot of sadness that I admit to Jerome Ming’s departure from Yangon. He and Sumie are off towards Europe today and I’ll be down once he’s gone… but… in reality… better off for having had the time with him here as I settled into a wholly new place. Jerome really cleared up a few things for me and sharpened my focus on a number of fronts. Big time. If I was in Yangon I’d be over at the airport helping to carry a suitcase and wave as the flying machine lifted off.

He’s made it through a big slab of study and I’m lucky to hold a beautiful little copy of his recent book… not many of them floating around the place… I’m still digging through it and trying to wrap my head around a lot of it.

So this little entry just wishes the man the best of luck: I hope new exciting adventures await you mate… and that sometime, somewhere, I will cross paths with you again. Coffee, sunshine and some stories to share.

stap isi.

I’m away on my little train ride in the countryside… so won’t be privy to who is awarded the Bowness Prize this evening… I’ll get the news on my return next week…

Suffice to say best of luck to all involved… I hope the evening is a celebration, a hotbed of laughter, drink and conversation; a dark night of pictures, prints, pints and possibilities (oh yeah… I went with the letter ‘p’ today…).

Righto… at this point I’m probably dragging my tripod down some street to a vantage point from on top of a pile of dirt, or maybe trying to talk my way into a random building… so I’ll leave you all to it.

High five for whoever walks away with the Bowness for 2014!

I’ll be gone for the better part of a week. No cell or web connection as the providers are different at the new location.

Send me an email and I’ll reply on my return.

Snapping a few pictures and rubbernecking some more. Busy busy hauling the old picture machinerererer around. Worth it just for the view on that gglass.
