All Wet

Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival @ Taiwan

The shutterbugs were here since early morning, to claim a good vantage point from which to view the proceedings of an evening event when hundreds of floating lanterns were to be released into the night sky at the same time. It was raining heavily and they have probably waited for hours by now, but nobody would give up their spot.

Keeping Her Distance

Street photography is opened for interpretation based on the viewer’s own thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Why is she keeping her distance?

Lens-Artists Challenge: A River Runs Through It

Pedestrian Scramble

Shibuya Crossing @ Tokyo (Japan)

Thousands of pedestrians cross at the same time from all directions. Chaos ensues when they meet in the middle.

Leading Lines

Dongdaemun Design Plaza @ Seoul (South Korea)

Leading lines need not be perfectly straight. They can also be curved and lead the eye in circular movements.


Wadi Rum (Jordan)

The Wadi Rum desert is known for its Mars-like landscape and I stayed in one of the futuristic pods. The dome window provides panoramic views of the desert and surrounding mountains. Perfect for enjoying the starry night sky too!

First Cliff Walk

Grindelwald-First (Switzerland)

First Cliff Walk does not mean my first attempt to walk on a cliff. It is the name of the lookout platform at First Mountain in Grindelwald, which offers breathtaking view of the Alps in Switzerland. The 4,078m Schreckhorn is in the background.

Probably my favorite photo of 2019.

The Treasury

The Treasury @ Petra (Jordan)

I am guilty of doing this ancient site an injustice by removing its colours, but there are already plenty of those beautiful rose-red images on the internet.


Osaka (Japan)

Bodiless and watchful eyes. I thought this hotel entrance is a bit too creepy for comfort. Apparently, they think otherwise. The statues are supposed to represent their efforts to offer the best hospitality services to people from all around the world. Asians, Africans, Arabs and Westerners.

The Alps

Pennine Alps (Switzerland)

Looking up at the Pennine Alps and looking down at the village of Zermatt. I cannot decide which is a better choice for this week’s Lens-Artists Challenge: Monochrome.
