If you are someone who frequents this site, you have probably realized that I am not a very good photographer. I have no special camera, I don't know how to adjust visual effects, and I've never been that good at finding the perfect angle. As a result, I have often resorted to making cartoon images instead. But this March however, one person offered to send me some of the pictures he had taken of his travels. I eagerly accepted the offer, and as a result, this website finally got its first frequent contributor. Here's that guy.
On top of being kind enough to make the offer, it turned out that Daniel was an awesome guy as well. Our paths crossed in Tbilisi in late March, and shortly after introduction, epic travel stories soon followed. As it turns out, he'd already been all over South America, across Europe, wandered through the Himalayas, and now was going through the Caucasus and into Central Asia along the ancient Silk Road. Yet, despite these epic adventures, he always remained humble and didn't call attention to himself. You could easily chill and talk with him about any subject for hours on end and never lose interest. Plus he ended up giving me some of the most useful travel advice: 'If there are ATM machines outside on the street, the city is generally safe.' Daniel is someone who in just fully into seeing the world and is driven by the urge to see new places and experience new cultures.
However, out of nearly everyone I'd met so far in my journeys, Daniel in particular was really into this blog and wanted to contribute in whatever way he could. And once I saw the quality and skill of his photos compared to mine, he quickly became globalhobos most contributing photographer. Thanks to him, there are now much better depictions of certain parts of Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and (once I finally put them up), Uzbekistan. I could go on, but I'll let his photography do the rest of the talking. Please enjoy the albums below!
