Good Morning120/365

Good Morning, originally uploaded by wtfclem.

I woke up this morning to my dad banging on my door telling me to get my camera gear. Grumbling and rolling out of bed, I put on a t-shirt, grabbed my camera bag, and walked outside to the beach where I took this.

We did a decent amount of hiking in Bali. I really never expected to see waterfalls with such little human influences present. Completely untainted with the exception of a dirt trail, this waterfall was well worth the trek.

This is my dad. He's pretty much me in 39 years. At the age of 60, he still surprises me with the things he does. Mountain biking, scuba diving, + the fact he can probably still kick my ass... I can't say that I'm not proud.

Was hiking near some crazy cliffs in Bali. Saw this monkey eating something on the edge of a 300+ft cliff.

Balinese art is always interesting. It seems like the entire island is an artisan of some sort. Saw this at a Hindu temple in Bali.

Refer to photo #107 if you don't understand this post.

So this is #107's mom... She wasn't too happy her child was getting pissed off because of me and I'll just say that I took this while running away from this BAMF haha.

Ok, this little fella comes with a pretty interesting story. Not impressed with paparazzi, he was pretty angry and tried clawing my lens. Monkey + $1200 Nikon 17-55 f/2.8 = NO BUENO, thank you Hoya UV filter.

Another monkey I photographed during my trip. I was able to get close enough to them while they were grooming each other and snap a few shots.

Monkeys are seriously the funnest things to photograph. It's really freaky how much emotion they can portray in their facial expressions. I had a chance to photograph lots of the monkeys that roam all over Indonesia this trip and it's really been a pleasure.

The moped, the most badass thing ever to transport man. No jk not really but they're like the most common form of transportation in Indonesia and cause the worst traffic congestion ever.

Farewell 101/365

Farewell, originally uploaded by wtfclem.

It's a bittersweet farewell to Southern California... I really didn't anticipate the things that happened prior to the trip but in the end these are the experiences that make life pretty amazing.

It's nice to be home

As much as I enjoy traveling and the adventures abroad, nothing is better than finally coming home after weeks of homesickness. This is by far my most productive photo adventure to date. I met a really talented diver/photographer in Manado. Check out his photos @ . Makes me want to get a set of neutral density filters :D. (ahem ahem hint hint, someone buy/donate me a set of LEE Neutral Density resin filters :D)Posts with a little back story to it's significance will come shortly. For now, check out my flickr @ .


P.S. I missed you Iris :]
