Feeling like a bit of adventure? A bit of magic? New stories? New images? New silliness? Then get the drinks and popcorn ready and stay tuned to this blog!
Armed with a camera and a notebook, my dream of a life on the road as a nomadic photographer is about to become reality. This week I sold my flat, a big checkmark on the to-do list. Now; preparations aplenty for life on the road as a Nomadic Photographer and Voyager. I hope for some assignments along the way, but have saved up money – and courage – for a long time. Here we go!
First stop is Thailand sometime in November where dear friends await me to show me more of incredible Asia. There is no itinerary. There is no end date. Only missions. And visions. Of tropical jungles and beaches in Asia. Wide open desolate deserts in Africa. Plains of majestic wildlife in Africa. Outback grandscapes in Australia. Valleys, Canyons, Forests and deserts of America. Magical icescapes of Patagonia.
I want to show you all how Mother Nature is the greatest artist of all, how a windy Wednesday afternoon in the image below turns all magical for just a few moments. A few moments where all elements come together. A few moments forever lost in time – unless captured, magic frozen in time. I want to make you a Believer. A believer in the magic of Mother Nature and a believer in preserving the wild, untouched places remaining in the world.

“Without new experiences, something inside of us sleeps. The sleeper must awaken.” – Frank Herbert
A bold choice! All the best with your nomadic life, and I look forward to seeing more photos of your adventures 😉
Thanks very much Martin !
Walvis Bay – keeps being af favorite of mine! (maybe not exactly the one above, – instead this one http://www.pbase.com/flemmingbo/image/116021076
By the way – Herbert also says:
A process cannot be understood by stopping it. Understanding must move with the flow of the process, must join it and flow with it.
Go to Asia – go to India -go to Rajasthan!!!
Thanks Pernille! I prefer the other one too but since I had already posted that one, I had to choose another.
India – will get there as well !
It sounds fantastic Flem, all the best and of course we'll be following your journey when possible.
Wow another one with a vignette, you are liking those more and more 🙂
Do you have any showing more of the foreground, the pattern on the ground looks really interesting, but I would like to see more of it?
Sounds like it will be a great trip, just travelling and taking photos, what a life.
Hi James, in this one: http://flemmingbo.wordpress.com/2009/08/16/patter… there is far more of there very interesting foreground pattern.
I have actually shied away from any vignetting now, got tired of that 'burned with a blow torch appa look'! So I do not add vignetting anymore, this is a natural vignette caused by the sun being behind the dunes – and the 3 stop GND filter of course!
Will be an amazing journey, the nomadic alternative!
