I'm back - fifteen pounds lighter but otherwise, none the worse for wear. Many, many beautiful and fascinating things to show and talk about; right now, however, I'm in the midst of remodeling my new studio in Los Angeles and barely have time to breathe, let alone blog. But here are a few samples (btw, you can click on any of these pictures for an enlarged view - you probably already knew that, but being the computer-challenged old fart that I am, I just figured it out moments ago...)
The Potala Palace in Lhasa - pretty sad shape inside, but the outside is still imposing and majestic.
Pelkhor Monastery - one of the few monasteries in Tibet that allows photographs to be taken inside the temple.
On the road to Mt. Everest - hundreds of miles of mountains like this.
