For the first time in 2 years since I left Melbourne, my ‘home away from home’, I was back for a quality time with my friends. But first, I had a stop-over in Sydney. Just a day in the office with colleagues there, then a night in a room with a view.
Drizzling rain almost audible outside my flat windows. First thing in the morning, this is just right for my mood while still in bed. Now looking closely for the first time maybe, at least since I got more into photography, I realise first the striking use of strong contrast monochrome, but then probably 3 very distinctively different style of photography -almost chaotic combination in one sequence.
Head out to another day of Wonderful Life!
My day job’s been a little bit too much of late. Unfortunately I had little time to focus on my creative inspiration. That does not mean that I did not take any photos all this time.

Happy New Year. I trust that you had good holidays, catching up with family and friends, filling up with a feast with lots to drink… It is a time of renewed resolution, and I think it is appropriate for me to start by posting an article on this long-neglected blog of mine. If you have been following my Facebook page, you know I have not stopped photographing at all. I have yet to resume my service as photographer for families, couples and businesses, but when the time is right, that will come back as well. For this blog, for now, changing the style a bit, let me pull together some of my favourite instagram posts from the last half year, to look back what’s been happening with my photography life.

Taking advantage of the long weekend in July, I made a short trip to western Japan. One day was spent seeking peace at a zen temple with calming garden in front of its terrace. Continue reading “Kyoto weekend”
When I visited the beautiful historical town of Sawara, the people in town pointed at the posters on the wall and said I should come back to see the big festival. Arriving half way into the day’s procession, I found local people still as friendly and chatty, not stressed out or anything. Continue reading “Sawara Festival”
