Walking Chiang Mai

Ive sort of thrown together a handful of images from my walking around Chiang Mai today. Not much flow between each of them sorry. One thing I noticed more in Chiang Mai more than other areas of Thailand was the uneven pathways (if there was a pathway). It appears that each shop has ownership, or […]

Farewell Bangkok

Although I have countless more images from Bangkok, today can be the last, so we can move up north a little next time. Something I love to see in cities I have visited is the contrast between old and new. Todays top image is of just as such – a old rundown building (I think […]

Nights in Bangkok part 1

After hours in the air, we set down in Bangkok. Time wise we landed some time after midnight, so the photos came the first day morning looking out over the cityscape. Exploring some of the town, we found ourselves in the World Centre (I think) – a bustling multi story shopping centre. Some more tomorrow.

Running the Half

Today marked the Auckland Marathon, New Zealand’s biggest turn out marathon. As with many years gone by, I entered the half marathon. Unlike other years, I completed a big fat zero hours of training. Unsurprisingly, this left me fairly sore for the rest of the day. This year marked the first course change in a […]

Autumn Between the Shadows

A shot from above. Looking down I snapped the autumn tree, its colours beaming out from both the shadows and grey city surrounding. Shot on the Nex 5N with the 55-210mm lens. In Gimp I desaturated the blue tones, giving the city buildings the mono tone. More shots from above tomorrow.

Urban Growth

As with all big cities (or small cities), growth is something we see in a continual state of movement. Largely cities offer what people want and/or need – jobs, income, shops, society, action… (I’m sure the list will depend on each as an individual). Auckland currently, for its population, one of the most sprawled out cities in […]

Hong Kong Market

  Momentarily when I arrived home, I was happy to see the internet had been fixed…then I sat down and it stopped again. Perhaps its some radio wave I emit when I enter the house!? Its working right now at least, so I will get on with todays post. Shot back something like a decade […]

Billboard Women

Walking in town one night I came across a long term building site which is surrounded by a wooden fence. Whether it be paid or unpaid, it is covered head to toe in both art and some political statements. Dimly lit by street lights, I made my way around it killing some time as I […]

City in a Puddle

Another wet Auckland City image taken on my Ricoh. I was having a walk along the outskirts just after dark when I notice the reflection of the city in one of the larger puddles. Unedited from the camera, I love the colors and the lines. Perhaps a ‘rats eye view’?
