There was a time, when I used to travel by plane quite a bit, mostly short haul within South-East Asia. Most of the life to be seen was outside the window- hence my hundreds of views from above photos, but sometimes funny moments happened on the plane. My neighbour and I never really did meet.Continue reading “Under the Seat, Vietnam”
The title really should be “View from the Bund” because all the tall buildings you can see are on the other side of the Huangpu River. As you can see, there is a wide path for people to walk by the river, which is pleasant when there is a gentle breeze (perhaps with an iceContinue reading “On The Bund, Shanghai”
I saw these guys as I got off the river bus in Bangkok. Judging by their boots, I think this must be their beat. The canals are popular thoroughfares in Bangkok, with the river buses carrying thousands of commuters to work every day. A river bus journey is quite spectacular, with the noise of theContinue reading “Police, Bangkok”
I don’t find it easy to take square landscapes. Here I was trying to use the curve of the river’s edge to lead your eye through the frame, but I’m not sure it works. I believe Clayton is in the north of Georgia where once you might have found bears in the countryside, but noContinue reading “River, Clayton, GA”
More trees! Or perhaps it is more yellow leaves against a blue sky. Or sunny winter days.. As I remember it, this was part of an avenue of trees between temples. Nara is a beautiful place to visit on a day trip from Kyoto or Osaka.
This photo dates back to a session I did with Gavin Goff. We visited a number of markets and temples and Gavin got in there and approached people and interacted. I think this was the main thing I learned from him. Strange that this was just a grab shot then! Here, I was using anotherContinue reading “Market, Bangkok”
Most people go to Nara to see deer and/or temples (I might share some photos of those another time). I believe I was walking to an art gallery when I saw this tree in the car park. Not sure the photo really does the tree justice – but it really was lovely.
Most of the time, people don’t want you to take their picture – or would rather you didn’t- but sometimes they do. As I remember it, I had gone to Athens to watch a Georgia Bulldogs football game (I think it was against Ole Miss) and when I took this picture, I was trying toContinue reading “Take My Picture, Athens”
Lynx, Shanghai Zoo, China 2020 I went to Shanghai Zoo to see the red pandas, but on the way, I looked in on the big cats. The leopards had their backs turned, as they often do, but here as you see, the lynx was quietly cleaning itself oblivious to passers by (including me). On thisContinue reading “Lynx, Shanghai”
The Shanghai Natural History Museum, is probably my favourite public building in Shanghai. It has an atrium, which brings a little natural light into what would otherwise be a rather large, dark museum. Visitors start their visit at the top of the building, learning about the origin of the universe and slowly work their wayContinue reading “Tyrannosaurus Rex, Shanghai”
