Sarah and I visited Emeishan City at the base of Mount Emei (aka Emeishan) in August. Mount Emei is one of the Four Sacred Mountains of Buddhism in China. We actually spent a few nights at Baoguo Temple (aka Baoguosi) and spent a day hiking up Mount Emei-–which was like climbing the world’s longest flight […]
When Sarah & I were in Shanghai, we spent the day wandering the Yuyuan Garden and the surrounding Bazaar. I snapped most of these photos as we walked through the streets of the Old City on our way to the Bund.
I tried to capture the steep changes in elevation while climbing the Great Wall of China. It may have been a cloudy day, but the temperature was in excess of 40°C. Climbing all those stairs was harder than it looks! Incidentally, can you spot the woman doing a handstand?
These were shot wandering the streets of Yangshuo. At night, these very streets transform into a very busy and crowded night market.
After nearly five years, I have finally posted my 1000th photo! I created this blog in July 2015 partly to share my photos, but mostly as a way to record my journey as a photographer for myself. It has been an immensely rewarding process and one I hope will continue for years to come. And […]
We took an overnight train from Shanghai to Xi’an to see the Terracotta Warriors. There was very little privacy on the overnight train. Compartments had six berths and an open doorway to the corridor. We shared our compartment with a university student and a lovely Chinese family. In fact, there were many families with young […]
Sarah and I took a bicycle tour through the countryside of Yangshuo. But to get to the bicycle rental shop, we had to first walk through a rather sketchy underground parking lot before emerging on the other side in an alley where I took these photos.
Sarah & I toured the Summer Palace on our first full day in Beijing, China. It was a spectacular day but Sarah wasn’t too pleased with me by the end. The temperature reached an incredibly hot 40˚C, and not only did I make her climb to the top of Longevity Hill to take some photos, […]
I picked up 8 rolls of Perutz Primera 100 film on eBay and have been thrilled by how well this expired, discontinued film has stood the test of time. These photos were taken around Yangshuo, China.
Sarah and I caught the dolphin show at Ocean Park in Hong Kong. I was quite pleased at how well my Olympus Trip 35 managed to freeze the action of the dolphins jumping. These were shot on the new Kodak Ektachrome E100. Ektachrome is one of my favourite films and I can’t wait to shoot […]
As we took a walk through an old hutong near the Bell Tower in Beijing, I came across a group of locals playing mahjong. These were shot on Lomography’s new B&W film: Potsdam Kino 100.
Of the many places that Sarah & I visited in China this summer, one of my favourites was the Xi’an Muslim Quarter. I could have spent hours wandering and photographing the Muslim Quarter’s night market. It was simply incredible! Sadly, I was unprepared that night and hadn’t brought enough film. These are some of the […]
