OBI656: Marvelous, beautiful images.

I just do not understand some kibitz questioning this photographer equipment. Who cares what cam he use. He is real photographer knowing how to use cameara equipment as his work speak it self.

Thank you so much for your comments !

raztec: Beautiful, superb, sublime. What an incredible adventure.

So glad you brought the equipment to capture it all in the best manner imaginable.

Given the weight and logistics, I personally would have settled for a simple Nikon FM2 and slide film.

Thank you so much raztec! As a cyclist you know like me how this feels. it is the best isnt' it :) Greeting from Zambia!!

mayurgogoi: I have just seen the creations of Nicolas Marino-an Encyclopedia of different aspects o Life;some where he wrote he did not see TV more than 8 yrs--but his pictures are itself a British Library,More than a TV and proper documentation of life--from the Gold extractions in Africa in high temp like 55 degree -where camera switches get jammed though Pro-quality due to expansion in heat to the Roti wallas in India and old woman wearing a big reflected Spectacle to Etiopia's Green belt to Sahara to Post Processing of Images all are awesome--I request every DPR readers to go through these images --in Facebook,his personal blogs,flickr etc-to know our world better--how the Africans feel the people of UNITED STATES ETC--and how Egyptians spends a day through Smoking,Dominos etc--

Hope DPR will take us such amazing journeys -few yrs back I have met Dave en route to Tawang ,Arunachal Pradesh India--who later completed his journey through Bhutan to Nepal in search of Sambhala.

thank you !

BNapa: Nicolas,

Your photos are fantastic. Your road trip on a bike is nuts! But I admire your courage to go to these remote places with no trailing crew and support cast.
I hope you make your 140 country goal.

I envy you as this has been my dream. May the force be with you.

What I want to say to the nay sayers would get me booted from this forum. All I can say to them is try to do this and live to tell us about it.

I totally, 1000% agree with you on the bike trip to the heart of a culture. It makes sense. Having visited a few distant cultures, I can see how they would receive you differently and open up to you as opposed to a crew arriving in 4x4s and the Hollywood like circus.

Be safe and keep posting your unique images.

Thank you soo much for such kind comments! They really encourage me to keep going. I highly appreciate it. Thank you thank you thank you !

larrytusaz: (1) I like cycling as well, it's greatly adventurous. My Sony E mount is perfect for that. This guy taking his Nikon FX--right on.

(2) Thank goodness it wasn't another iPhone promotion.

(3) View it on mobile, otherwise--once again (sigh), next, next, next, next, ne......

(If I were King for a day, I'd eliminate that design throughout the entire WWW everywhere.)

Thanks a lot larry !

In reply to:

Expat Nomad: I've been lucky enough to travel slowly, to out of the way places myself, and can appreciate what is attractive about that.

Two things:
Congratulations - thank you for sharing images from, and the way of life experienced where very few people (from the "developed" world) will go. You'll be able to reflect on the images, and upon the people you met when you no longer can travel to them.

Also, you have managed to KEEP travelling in this manner, for a long period of time. That brings it's own challenges, but (IMO) allows continuity to think about your personal development, as there is always something new being experienced.

Thank you soo much ! :)

mononk: That's how I see photography for amateurs: a great mean to spend your free time, to live some of your dreams, and finally the possibility of sharing these moments with your entourage. Nicolas' photographs represent a big chunk of his life. Who cares if they are not technically perfect ? The time we spend discussing the new bells and whistles ad nauseam is wasted. Let's get out and "make" photographs with the best equipment in the world: OURS.

Thank you so much for your comment :) I pay attention to technicalities but I'm a lot more focused on the feel, the emotions, so I totally agree with you.

alcaher: Great photography, someday i want to travel to so many countries and outdoors scenarios alone
i have to start saving some money.

Living in cities around walls and concrete its not healthy.

Thanks so much ! I have saved all my life, every penny I got to travel. Anyone can do it but you really have to want it :)

tinternaut: Absolutely beautiful. However, the engineer in me cringed at the thought of a single point of failure (the camera body) on the photography side.

Hi guys! thanks a lot for your comments.
I carry 3 spares of batteries which are most of the time enough to get me from one place with electricity to another. If I'm in a extreme need, then I am stingy with the LCD use and that's enough.
I thought about getting a Brunton solar charger but it was too expensive and too big and no real need for it.

Joe Pineapples: Great photography - and a testament to his attitude and personality that he can establish the trust and affinity with his subjects that is apparent in his photographs...

Thank you so much Joe!

dgc4rter: Can't help but admire this guy in the utmost. Travelling the world, taking incredible photos but he's definitely got what it takes and seems to strike up quite an affinity with his subjects in order to get "the shot".

He's ideal National Geographic material. They ought to sponsor him as one of their "Adventurers in Residence".

Thank you so much !! I feel your words are too big for me !! thank you !
