BEST OF STREETS 2011 (Local Scene)

"In and Out of Love"

With 2011 drawing to an end, I recently took a good look through my library of images that I had shot throughout the year. Many times when I look at my own images again, I learnt something new. Just like looking at the works of other photographers – we see the good and the bad. […]

STREET PHOTOGRAPHY: MYANMAR IN MONOCHROME

Yangon, Myanmar

A visit to Myanmar is just like winding back the clock. When first I stepped into this time-warped country in Oct 2011, I felt I was being brought into the true authentic Asia where the adventure travel of old lives on. The sight of creaking buses packed with passengers to the brim, worn-out taxis and potholed […]

STREET DOCUMENTARY: A LOOK AT THE SULTAN MOSQUE

The open courtyard by the side of the main prayer hall

August 2011 – This happen to be the month of the Ramadan this year (the Islamic month of fasting – the ninth month of the Islamic calendar which lasts for 29 or 30 days).

CHILD’S PLAY – WATER FEAST

Child's Play: Two kids playing with water (Marina Barrage, Singapore)

Whilst photographing children can be one of the most rewarding and tempting areas, it can also be quite frustrating. For one simply reason, kids are never at rest and they are always in motion. If you have […]
