The Uzbek Troopers

Interestingly, when three photographers travelled, even when we had five camera bodies and seven lenses between us three, we only had one photo of the three of us together.

Only one group photo... for the whole two weeks of travel.

And the rest of the time, we took pictures of each other taking pictures of other people.

Of the three of us, I was the most amature and less-equipped (one body - D40 je lak tu - and one lense), and I learn so much from these guys, like: waking up super early to catch the perfect sunrise shot (though I am the laziest when it came to this. I ended up asking them to just go, and met me for breakfast later), hunting for the perfect spot for sunset shot and waiting patiently in the chill of the dusk, chasing after a perfect subject, or just sitting idly at one spot to wait for the perfect subject to wander into our frame. It helps also that the Uzbek people that we encounter were rather sporting. They posed for us, or if they don't want to be photographed candidly, they simple turned their head or covered it with their hands, which will be our cue to lower down our lenses off their face. At least tak de aaa kena kejar or marah, heheh.
