On this National Geographic Expedition to Sri Lanka, Andaman Islands and Borne, we were exploring these places …Borneo, Ceylon (such a great name, now Sri Lanka,) Singapore, Java, Malayasia, all romantic titles harkening back to my days of reading adventure stories about far off places on the other side of the globe….and now I’m here.

  1. Dudley Wood Says:

    Hi Jay,

    I always enjoy looking at your work and have been a NGM fan for a long time. I remember many years ago waiting for a flight out from Porto Alegre in Brasil, to São Paulo, chatting with a gentleman who went by the name of Louis Mazzatenta. Discovering he was a NGM photographer was akin to meeting royalty!

    Best wishes,
    Dudley

    P.S. I’ve bought an Oly EM-10 because I can’t handle the weight of the FullFrame any longer.
