This online shoebox contains random pictures, notes, whatever. I've been a professional writer-photographer for so many years now. It's a damn good excuse to carry a camera around.

It's coffee harvest time once again in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. At the town of Da Nhim, just outside Dalat, a buying station collects freshly picked coffee cherries from the surrounding plantations:

Just off the road, a farmer from the Ca Tu ethnic minority group picks Arabica cherries:

The going rate for a kilo of red cherries is VND 6,800. That's around 12 Pesos.

A bit more rain, a bit more sunshine. December's the big month for these tiny cherries :)

These smart cameraphones are so useful now that the next breed of cameras will probably have internet connections.

And I have a suspicion the next photography trend will be towards spur-of-the-moment, LOMO- type imagery...
