Kawah Ijen Night Miners

In Further Lost, International People by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

You’ve always wanted to do a four a.m. hike down a mountain in the dark ending at an acid sulphur lake right? Have I got just the place for you.

Mary’s Tomb in Jerusalem

In cultural photography, Further Lost, landmarks, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

The view from the bottom of the stairs at Mary’s Tomb; better known as Tomb of the Virgin, in Jerusalem is kinda creepy and a little interesting. I had entered that door at the top of the stairs maybe five minutes prior, and was promptly turned away when I got to this point. You see, I hadn’t checked the times …
