Around The World In Eighty Days?


I'd thought about this, actually. Through the Leica Forum on Photonet I've become friends with photographers in Alaska, Japan, Hong Kong, Pakistan, Australia, Brasil, a whole slew of places. When Monkey got invited to visit San Francisco my mind went wild with ideas. It would be so easy for him to spend a few days someplace, be photographed seeing the local sights, and then for but a few dollars be sent on to the next photographer. Nobody would have to lay out much money and maybe we could come out with a collaborative childrens' book. But Monkey is 62 years old. Maybe a last fling of visiting the Red Light Districts of the major cities? How about Casinos Of The World? There's a lot of possibilities. If you have any ideas let me know. If you want to take part in one of the projects then speak up! Monkey is open to ideas and suggestions.

The photo above was taken by Todd Frederick, self-portrait, upon arrival in the SF Bay Area.

Is your monkey lactose intolerant? Nothing worse then a flatulant monkey.

Love your site over here in Ireland. We be sloshed now, as we're finishing your 3rd pint for the morning before work.

God Bless You, Al!

It would be nice to send the Monkey to the White House.

Maybe he'll do a better job then the monkey now in office. Well, at least the press-conferences will be more intelligible, to be sure.

We have a great Red Light district here in Amsterdam. Monkey's more than welcome. Iw on't be able to take pictures of Monkey's visit there, though. My camera, Monkey and I will for sure and up in the canal; my camera broken, my face punched, and Monkey could lose a few limbs. :)

BTW, Monkey could even join on a trip to Mongolia. Not much Red Light district there, or casinos, but a once-in-a-lifetime trip for sure. :)
