Pic(k) of the week 41: LOOKING UP AT MUCEM, Marseille, France

It is often been said that interesting modern Architecture often changes a city over a few years; this might become the case with one of Marseille's latest buildings; MUCEM, a museum devoted to European and Mediterranean civilizations which opened in 2013. As Marseille is trying to get rid off its...

Pic(k) of the week 29: NEW YORK IN THE RAIN – when luck is on your side

New York city, remains my number one preferred destination when it comes to Street Photography! Needless to say, I'm always looking forward to hunting the streets of Manhattan, whenever the opportunity arrises. Such was the case last week, when I spend 48hrs in the Big Apple! Unfortunately the weather wasn't on...

Chinese New Year with the family

One cannot ring in the lunar new year without continually consuming vast amounts of food. It’s all ridiculously tasty (this is Southeast Asia, after all), ridiculously available in ridiculous amounts, and you generally get swept up in the I-haven’t-eaten-in-6-months fervor when its spread out. Mum,...

Fujinon XF 23mm F2, another lens with gorgeous flare

It’s been 4 years. I’ve wanted a compact 23mm lens since I first held the X-Pro1, back in mid 2012. I’ve been around the world for the last 4 years with the XF 35mm F1.4 (53mm full frame field of few on Fujifilm X series...

An ode to red rock: Arches and Canyonlands national parks

I’ve been trying to write this post for a very long time, finding it difficult to articulate the hold that Arches National Park has over my imagination. It is the one national park that I could swear, knows me by name. It’s a ridiculous thing to say, particularly for...

Valby to Vegas

The grey ended in spectacular fashion, during my last week in Denmark. There was glorious sunshine, and Flemming and I got back to Valby (a suburb of Copenhagen where his sister, who kindly hosts us gypsies, lives) in time to catch the trees aglow in Søndermarken. I’ve never...

The endless grey

Nordjylland, Danmark It’s been about two weeks since I’ve seen any sun. The sky has been a flat not-quite white which fades to black at night, and lightens to an evening shade of grey when it becomes day. It weighs more when a drizzle wanders in, but that is...

The end of summer

Nordjylland, Danmark After days of glorious sunshine the weather moved in, and on Sunday rain clouds were piled grouchily on the horizon. By mid morning, everything had a slate grey cast to it. “Let’s go to the beach,” Flemming’s Dad said. The last time we were in Thorup, it...
