Morning boat ride on Ganges River

Varanasi (India) is one of the oldest living cities in the world. Boating down the Ganges River during sunrise is a main attraction. The whole place is colorful and chaotic. It is a melting pot where both life and death come together … the sights, sounds and smells are just not for the fainthearted.

Magic Square

The door of the Sagrada Familia (Barcelona, Spain) is full of engraved words in various languages taken from the Bible. This Magic Square stands out among the words. The numbers in each row, and in each column, and in the diagonals, all add up to a magic constant of 33, the age of Jesus Christ at the crucifixion.

33? I am always tempted to verify that again and again.

Zen Face

This was taken 5 years ago when I first started to enjoy photography. Obviously, I had no idea of bokeh and I didn’t even have a proper camera/lens to do so. Nevertheless, I am still happy with how I composed this shot by giving it a tight crop. I rarely do vertical portrait shots nowadays.
