  2. Wow, these pics makes me feel that I’m looking at another country! This is Bangladesh and from a photographer’s point of view. Thanks I’ll be following your ramblings.

  3. I enjoyed “the visit” to your “page”—the photos are good, the “ramblings” are interesting. May Father bless you and your work.


  4. Wow – your photos and journey are amazing. What a beautiful place you are in – beautiful smiling people! And you have captured their essence so well. Can I put a link from my page to yours so I can keep following you? I am also a school teacher – in New Zealand (but have taken time out to try to explore my creative side, photography)
    Keep it coming!

    Hey, why don’t you put lots of pictures of your good-looking and smart son on your site. That might attract a horde of beautiful spiritual ladies who want to marry him…

  10. Hello Marland,
    For a client of mine in the Netherlands I’m looking for a picture of the Chili Harvest. I’ve seen you have some beautifull pictures. Can I use one of yours?
    Kind regards


      1. Dear Marland,

        Im a social media manager who is looking for a suitable picture for a small Facebookpost of one of my clients. Im looking for a picture of the Indonesian harvest of chili.

        My clint sells Homemade sambals. After 3 years he has to increase the prices. I want to use the picture just to tell, that prices increases because we want all people to have a good living.

        As a reimbursement I can mention your name on the picture. Please let me know, whether this is okay with you.

        De picture on the internet is suitable for Facebook.

        Kind regards.
