Celebrating a year of happiness

Today my wife an I are celebrating a year of being together. She is an amazing human being. From the moment she entered my life she changed everything around and all for the better. She caused heaven and earth to change places. She is the love of my life.

These are two of my favourite photographs of her.


Simple portraits, caught in the spur of the moment, with no preparation.

The first one was taken in a shopping mall shortly before grabbing some dinner. The second one was while waiting for a bus one idle Thursday morning.

Congratulations to us baby!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fray

This weeks weekly photo challenge from Daily Post is Fray

“Share a photo of what “fray” means to you — it could be a tear in a favorite pair of jeans, a street rumble just about to begin, or a friend diving into an oncoming wave at the beach.”


Bugis flags

Frayed and tattered flags above some dumpsters, in an alleyway, beside Bugis Street. I thought the colour of the wall was stunning and the contrast between the lighter coloured flags and background was very striking.

Location: Singapore
Camera: Fujifilm X100S; 1/100, f/5.6, ISO 200

Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

This weeks weekly photo challenge from Daily Post is Texture

“This week, share a texture found in an unexpected place. It could be made of natural materials, or with man-made objects.”


Texture with leaves

Nothing fancy. I looked down and there it was – texture. And what appeared, to me, to be a metaphoric separation of souls.

Location: Singapore
Camera: Minolta X-700; Film: Fujifilm Superia X-tra 400

Weekly Photo Challenge: Zigzag

This weeks weekly photo challenge from Daily Post is Zigzag

“For this week’s challenge, share with us your own take on zigging and zagging. It can be a winding path, the Herringbone pattern on your coat, a scar: any jagged line that tells a story.”


Owharoa Falls

To me Karangahake Gorge is one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand. It’s a small forested area and understated in many ways. But when getting drenched with a solid rainfall it really comes into its own with a roaring river and simple but ruggedly appealing rock formations.

Tucked away in some forgotten corner of the gorge is Owharoa Falls. I think that for a small waterfall it is stunning. Located in a quiet, lonely spot, there is never anyone near it. Tributary waters zigzag and cascade glamorously over the rocks to the tranquil pool waiting below, before making their way to the roisterous gorge river.
