I have posted 30+ albums to my Karen’s Photography FaceBook page. Check it out for a full demo of the snaps I have taken. You’ll also find more Phuket images on my Phuket Blog: karencornelius.net/Phuket. These are just a few of my favourites in case you haven’t been to either site. :)
Markets are always interesting places to collect bright and colourful images. Chatuchak is ENORMOUS, so more opportunities than usual. Just a few of my favourites!
Couple of days in Bangkok – spent some of it targeting street photography – catching people in action. This isn’t my usual habit when travelling, a stretch is always good!
I have been through the photos, from the first 4 stops of our Tibet journey, to de-saturate some of my favourites. Here are some for your perusal. Love to know what you think!
After some interesting airline stuff ups we had the gift of a day in Shanghai. We walked miles, through old sections, along the Bund and up the main shopping strip. A productive photographic day!
After a 14+ hour bus trip from Lahrong Monastery to Chengdu, we were ready for some quiet exploration and photography! We left Lahrong at 5 am to get the bus for Chengdu. Rather than go to bus terminus it was decided that we meet the bus at a small town on a cross road where […]

On arrival we were greeted by the sight of a thousand burgundy robed monks spread out across the fields, debating, listening, chatting, learning, eating and networking. Delegates badges, bags […]

Under restoration and being carefully repainted and repaired, we explored the 5 levels around the gorgeous central Buddha. Then we were escorted to […]
