Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?

Subject: Children of the Shan


As a teacher, it breaks my heart seeing all these children with an awareness of the harsh realities of the world.

This kid has a conditioned response to "Bang". He drops down onto the grass in a crouch - just like a trained soldier.

He marches around with his toy gun and practices his drills. He even shoots at you.

These are things children should never have to learn.


To this day, Burma is one of the most repressive and oppressive places in the world. With a government that actively attacks their minorities and keeps the rest of their people unaware.

To date, there are a million internally displaced people roaming the forests of Burma in hopes of evading the army - and another million who have fled and sought sanctuary along the border of Thailand and Burma.

These are some of the photos I took while I was in one of those refugee communities.
