Polar bear babies in Alaska- A few years ago I was lucky to be able to visit an Inuit village where bears have their young. Getting there involved driving up the Dalton highway and then flying in from Prudhoe bay to Inupiat village (weather permitting). Bear cubs can be curious however regulations require you to move if they get too close to avoid them learning to much about humans. Common sense indicates moving away anyway from their protective mothers.

Matriarchs - One of the greatest pleasures of my travels to Tanzania is getting time to focus on animal and bird behaviour. These three mothers, part of a herd of around 15 animals, are presenting the face of their collective care for their young. If you look closely you will see the vague outline of a baby who in an almost choreographed dance has moved back and under as the three matriarchs move together and forward. (touch our kid we break your face). This was a general first caution response we saw in a number of groups. If they were even more concerned another big mother would come forward with trunk raised and ears out. Watch the cars hit reverse fast when that happens. One learns to give them plenty of space. The collective maternal concern is very moving.

Another image from the second day of the Erikae of Geiko Ichitomi from the Nakagishi Okiya in Gion Kobu. Newly debuted geiko always take time to make personal visits to Okiya and Ochaya and certain local businesses and are usually followed by a group of enthusiastic photographers. Itchtomi wore an especially wonderful shibori kimono. Geiko in this process of visiting are always accompanied by someone very familiar with the kagai and its culture, often an otokoshi, as was the case today.

Taksu
While in Bali for my sons wedding recently, I was able to arrange some photography beforehand. A highlight was photographing this Balinese Dance artist. At just 7 years of age, Suci brings a commitment to her performance that is most impressive.. I photographed her, still in her school uniform as she very diligently did her performance makeup and then had the final touches added by her mother, who is also a traditional dancer. Her 4 year old sister, Oming is also learning now too. The actual performance was spellbinding. Suci seemed to summon up a mythic character and the school child was magically supplanted by a very formidable being. Then the dance stopped and she was a child again. I gather that Balinese rituals, culture and behaviour aim to be 'taksu' ( from the heart) and this certainly was.

Great to see this tradition being maintained at such a level and so obviously enjoyed. The dance form has been recognised as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.

Nomads of the High Pastures, Ladakh. (2/3 in a series)

This senior man, a leader in his community, welcomed us into his tent of yak wool and offered tea, despite being in the process of packing up to move his herd and belongings to a new location. A warm and impressive person it was a delight to meet him and his community and I hope I can return sometime in the future.

Nomads of the high grassland in Ladakh
This woman reveals her deep distress at her son's stolen education. She recounts the story of saving to send her son for an education in the capital, under the care of a man who promised to look after him, only to discover, after some time, that her child was being put out to work instead of educated. I have found that parents of very little means around the world, often commit a huge part of scant resources to their children's education. While many, many children are able to gain from their parents' efforts, the parents own lack of formal education can sometimes leave them and their children vulnerable.

By the River's Dark - (best in album view)
Rural mela's (festival or gathering) in India often include elements of animal market and agricultural show (and associated sideshow alley) around a religious core. This mela centred around a special time to bathe in the Holy River Ganges. The peak time for bathing was at night and it was very busy as we walked in, in the dark, past stalls and sideshows setting up, to the steep and crowded ghats. Where people waited for a space to make the puja they had come for. A series of 9 images.

There is a reason people go to the top locations in Kyoto...
But also go beyond the top ten...Visit some of the other 1000 temples, better still hire a good local guide. Take one or more of the wonderfull, deep Kyoto walks https://www.amazon.com/Deep-Kyoto-Walks-Pico-Iyer-ebook/dp/B00KFM2J0C. Also always check for Geiko and Maiko performances which are often available.

What Do You Always Carry With You? 18 Expert Travel Photographers Reply

For the second expert roundup on travel photography, I asked 18 friends the following question:

“Aside from cameras and lenses, what is the single piece of equipment that you always carry with you, wherever you travel?”

You can read their answers after the fold. I am sure there are some items in the list that will surprise you and that you never thought would be an indispensable complement to a travel photographer’s tools of the trade. Maybe you will consider carrying some of those on your next trip.

The Jidai Matsuri happens in Kyoto every year on October 22. It's a must if you want to see a parade of 2000 historical characters in splendid costumes. Not all the characters are confident enough to be 'in role' but some work to really channel their inner samurai. The maiko are always perfect in their historical costumes of course. Treat this as an early heads up if you will be in town on that date and maybe have someone buy seats in the special seats for a front row show. The route is long, as is the parade itself, so there are lots of other places you can catch it. Remember sunscreen! It is colourful so I will post some colour images another time

Treat this as an early heads up if you will be in town on that date and maybe have someone buy seats in the special seats for a front row show. The route is long, as is the parade itself, so there are lots of other places you can catch it. Remember sunscreen! It is colourful so I will post some colour images another time___

An image from my book: Geiko & Maiko of Kyoto is from the Odori section and I really encourage all visitors to Kyoto with an interest in this world to check if there are Odori performances happening at any of the five theatres, one in each kagai. I schedule my visits around them where possible.
My book is just now being distributed in Australia through Penguin/Random House so can be ordered from '*all good bookshops*' in Australia or via the the Fremantle Press site. https://www.fremantlepress.com.au/products/geiko-and-maiko-of-kyoto?taxon_id=18
It is also available in Kyoto.
International orders are available through my site robertvankoesveld.com

A Cloud on the Horizon - in Norway.
This is a colour image of a monochromatic scene ... the scene looked like this for about a minute and I scrambled to stop and get my big camera set up in time ... and then, as they do, the clouds re-arranged themselves.

A delightful day in Gion Higashi earlier this year as Tomitae 'turned her collar' to become Geiko. In this image she amazingly stopped briefly by my exhibition and looks at her own image made over three years ago. She is wearing her own wig for the first time and can sleep without the wooden pillow she would have used most nights for more than four years (to protect her hairstyle). . #Geiko #erikae #maiko #kyoto the exhibition in Kyoto is closed now but my book is available on my website: www.robertvankoesveld.com

Polar bear babies in Alaska- A few years ago I was lucky to be able to visit an Inuit village where bears have their young. Getting there involved driving up the Dalton highway and then flying in from Prudhoe bay to Inupiat village (weather permitting). Bear cubs can be curious however regulations require you to move if they get too close to avoid them learning to much about humans. Common sense indicates moving away anyway from their protective mothers.

Matriarchs - One of the greatest pleasures of my travels to Tanzania is getting time to focus on animal and bird behaviour. These three mothers, part of a herd of around 15 animals, are presenting the face of their collective care for their young. If you look closely you will see the vague outline of a baby who in an almost choreographed dance has moved back and under as the three matriarchs move together and forward. (touch our kid we break your face). This was a general first caution response we saw in a number of groups. If they were even more concerned another big mother would come forward with trunk raised and ears out. Watch the cars hit reverse fast when that happens. One learns to give them plenty of space. The collective maternal concern is very moving.

More Puffin magic this time from Lunga Island, the largest of the Treshnish Isles. Puffins move surprisingly fast when they land with a beak full of sand eals so you have to be fast to catch them heading for their burrows and hungry chicks. #Scotland #puffins

On the (bonnie, bonnie) banks of Loch Ness today. 1/3 Three images and three thoughts ...

* I realise I am most drawn to smaller landscapes right now; what I think of as 'poetic' or 'intimate' landscapes; rather than more usual larger scale ones.
* Image making comes in strange bursts. I can spend days making few images that I really care about and then have a timeless immersive hour or so where there seems to be images everywhere.
* I have come to trust the Leica SL in the rain. I just kept working in the heavy rain and let the camera deal with it today after having had no issues in other rainy conditions in the past. So good not to have to baby the camera or stop working when it pours. (I don't usually discuss gear and don't want to go more into the topic - just saying good water seals are good to have)

Loftenen Norway - It's been raining and sometimes sleeting since I have been here. Un-seasonal according to some but a classic 'green winter' to others ( ie two seasons: White winter and green winter). Clearer just now. It is very beautiful here. I am staying here in the little red cabin on the right in this image. Really!
