Asphalt Valley At Dawn

When I said I was drawn to B&W images last week, it didn't take me too long to take the plunge as I recently acquired a Leica M Monochrom Typ 246 camera. I've been thinking about getting one for a while, especially since Leica came up with this brilliant marketing campaign where Zack Snyder (the ...


Lost in Time

When wandering in the streets of Sannenzaka in Kyoto, it's easy to believe you've been projected back in time. The wooden houses and the tiles on the pavement, although renovated, are quite effective at making you expect crossing path with a samurai. If you are lucky, you might see a maiko-san (an apprentice geisha) furtively ...


Gold Rush

It's not easy to find a good spot for a sunrise or a sunset in Hong Kong, unless you actually go to the coast. However, with the beautiful weather we had on the first day of the lunar calendar, I decided to go and shoot in Wanchai and enjoy a stroll in unusually quiet streets ...


Avenue of the Stars

On a rainy Sunday morning in Paris while I was waiting for my hotel room to be ready, I figured I might as well go out and take some photos. Happy New Year of the Monkey!

Sweet Tokyo Sunrise

Sunrise around the district of Marunouchi in Tokyo, as seen from the park around the Imperial Palace. No wonder people like to jog around the Imperial Palace: the energy in the air is almost palpable, making you understand why this place was chosen for the construction of the Emperor's domicile.

Nautical Twilight

I got up at 4:30am that morning and peeked outside to see if I could beat the weather forecast announcing 100% chance of rain. Seeing some patches of clear sky, I hopped in a taxi and got to the Hong Kong Peak, still misty from a fresh summer night. As usual, I couldn't help but ...


Don’t Be Afraid Of The Storm

Bad weather conditions can sometimes produce the most dramatic photos. This was taken in Auckland at sunrise, while I was witnessing the clouds unfold and wrap the sky with its dark layer, as if the night was falling again.

The Multiple Faces Of A Sunrise

I'm posting not one but three pictures today to illustrate how different a sunrise can look depending on the time of the day you get on location. So just don't think it's fine to arrive at the time of the sunrise, else you may be missing beautiful crepuscular rays or that magic moment when the ...


With Respect For The Founding Fathers

Happy anniversary to all my Singaporean friends, as the nation celebrates its 50 years as an independent nation this year! Beyond the aesthetics of the scene, this picture has a special historical meaning as the port on the right hand side known as Boat Quay used to welcome ships for trading of goods, while the ...
