The Blog. My thoughts.

Sydney, Australia

Sydney

I don’t think I’ve posted any photos from Sydney before. This was a day trip to the city last year and I spent most of the time around Darling Harbour. There’s a lot to see and do around there, so if you do head out to Sydney, expect to be there half a day or…[More]

Vibrant Mongkok

Vibrant Mongkok

This is my favourite street in Mongkok, Hong Kong. There are plenty of stores to suit all tastes and budgets. The street closes off for cars, making this a giant shopping strip at night. I think the name of the street is Sai Yeung Choi Street South/North. If you do get lost trying to find…[More]

A Cat's Life

A Cat’s Life

Cat’s have it really easy. They do what they want, when they want, and everything is given to them. What a life! This is part of the same series of photos from the Cycle I did in Hong Kong. I got the idea and inspiration to go with a B&W conversion while listening to The…[More]

The Texture of Angkor Wat

The Textures of Angkor Wat

This photo was screaming B&W to me. The magnificent texture runs long and far along this wall, and it’s not the only one. I can’t help but stop and admire the hard work that people put in hundreds of years ago into such a stunning temple. Travel should not be about moving from place to…[More]

Boats in Hoi An

Boats in Hoi An

What a nice little town Hoi An was. Old but well looked after buildings, nice people, and to add to the atmosphere, a small river. Hoi An is well known for tailors, and before you can even get off the bus, you’re already being bombarded with offers for suits “ready in the morning” they say….[More]

Golden Casket Sphere

The Sphere

This is also part of the Brisbane Festival and taken with the Canon 1000D, another one of my all time favourites photos. I spent a long time “cleaning” the image by removing all the dirt and smudges on the glass of the sphere. The tool I used the most was the Spot Healing tool in…[More]

South America Trip I’ve finally booked my flights to South America!! It wasn’t easy finding the cheapest fare; it took almost 2 weeks, and there were a lot of headaches. That aside now, I will be able to focus on what to do during my trip. Excitement just keeps building up! Today’s Photo The world…[More]

Torii Gate Trail

Torii Gate Trail

South America Trip I’m now in the process of finding the best flight deals. It puzzles me how the cost of flight tickets can skyrocket from one day to the next. I simply think it’s absurd! Lucky for websites like Skyscanner, I can get an overview of a whole month and choose the cheapest days…[More]

High Up at Ten Thousand Buddhas

High Up at Ten Thousand Buddhas

Ten Thousand Buddhas is in Shatin, Hong Kong, easily accessible by train. It’s a good walk up the hill as you go past the many different buddhas. Although it was winter, it felt really hot up here with the sun full blast. I think there’s a trail that takes you higher, but I think this…[More]

Brisbane Under Lights

Brisbane Under Lights

Here is one of the early photos I took with my first camera, the Canon 1000D. This is one of my all time favourites, and all possible with an entry-level DSLR and some post-processing. I like to show people that cheaper gear doesn’t necessary mean worse photos. Computers and post-processing software can do so much…[More]
