We'll Be Right Back...

The doors close on a commuter in a BTS Skytrain at Ekkamai Station Monday morning.

Posting on the Occasional Blog is going to be even more occasional for the next few weeks. We're going back to the U.S. to see family in Minnesota and Florida and deal with paperwork in Arizona. 
A hipsters' clothing shop in Chatuchak Weekend Market in northern Bangkok. I made this picture over the weekend while we were at the market picking up last minute gifts for family in the states. 

I haven't been back to the U.S. in more than 18 months. This is a pretty short trip (three weeks) to reconnect with family and pick up some gear (there's a new MacBook Pro and maybe a new Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II waiting for me. And, as an aside, who names these things?). 
A picture I made Monday morning of a woman looking at giant statues of revered Buddhist monks. This was in Benchasiri Park, next to the Emporium, a high end shopping mall.

I won't be working at all on this trip to the U.S. When I went back in 2013 I covered a couple of political campaigns and the Republican led shut down of the US federal government. This trip is so quick and we have so much ground to cover that I don't think I'll doing any actual photojournalism. 

But stay tuned. We should be back in Bangkok by mid May and I have some interesting things coming up in June and July. 

Finally, most of the photos in my archive are available for editorial use or self fulfillment as prints. If you see something you'd like to use or just hang on the wall, click on the "Add to Cart" button and follow the onscreen prompts.
