Curiosity

This was taken during my last trip to Xiapu, China when I was tasked to test the Fuji XT2 prototype. Boy, what a camera especially for travel photography!

Xiapu is a county in the municipal region of Ningde, Fujian. To access it I flew in to Xiamen and took a 3-hr bullet train […]

Two more days and I'll be on my way to SIem Reap. Another photo to share.

Again taken at Tonle Sap, this time at sunset. I noticed the wonderful clouds which would make a great background. And to get that extra rim of light on the left side of his body, I […]

Going through some old files

I have not been shooting much of late and those who know me know that I process my files only when I have inspiration to do so – and I usually do it one at a time! It is hence not surprising that I still have many files that I have yet to process given […]

One evening in Bali

You have seen some shots taken in the mornings in Bali posted previously here. For the same reasons I like to shoot in the evenings when lighting is fantastic for dramatic available light photography – the only difference is that in the morning the light becomes harsher with time and in the evening the reverse […]

To jump or not to jump

One just can't get enough of the crystal clear water of Semporna. The clear blue sky adds to the beauty of the place. The sea Bajaus may be poor financially but what they have is the richness of nature. What a sight to behold!
