That is the only way to describe this trip. I spent a week in Houston Texas then jumped on a plane and went to Perth, Australia for another week only to then go to Jakarta Indonesia and Stavanger Norway before coming home to London. That is 24,000 miles traveled in three weeks, and I will not even try to calculate the amount of time spent on planes.
With such a crazy business trip covering some weekends I decided to carry a camera to use during the down times. I decided to travel light again with the Leica ME and my Zeiss 50mm lens. I did not have much time to use it but managed to spend a weekend in Perth which gave me the chance to run around town taking a few pictures.
I really wanted to capture some color film shots of Perth, however with all the security I would be going through I feared that the film would not survive such a constant assault of X-Ray. So I was left with my digital option which brings me as close to film as I can reasonably get.
Below are some of my favorite shots from the trip. All of these images sum up to represent my view on Perth Australia. The nature, beach and fun loving attitude of the local population. A wonderful place where my family and I were able to spend 4 great years getting to know.
