One of our favourite pursuits is to create unique illustrative imagery to tell a story or convey a feeling – something that is normally challenging in a static image.
If you can capture someone’s story or find a way to express their feelings and communicate them clearly, that’s a pretty good outcome.

What a shame this was disappointing to members, not very inspiring, it was just a travelogue. However, one member enjoyed the photos and descriptions, especially on Myanmar (Burma). The countries travelled were Myanmar, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
