Singapore is a wonderful place for good quality seafood and of recent years, restaurants are developing new recipes to entice their regular customers to return. Longbeach has been in business for a long time and continue to move with the times. This set of images was taken at lunch time and all five dishes was very tasteful and truly enjoyable. The quality of service is outstanding as well with the senior waiter even deshelling the crab for us. The images here was taken with 5D2 and EF35mm L f1.4 together with remote speedlight.
I saw this bright brass and red hydrant sticking out of a wall of a building, on a street I was walking along – returning from Central Park. I realised straight away, that it would make for a wonderful full sized mural on a wall. Inexplicable.
The Museum of Modern Art in New York City is a mecca for art lovers. Regardless whether one is contemporary or modern art lover, the MOMA showcases some of the most fabulous works of modern times. Andy Warhol a native New Yorker has many dramatic pieces displayed at the MOMA and this photographed here was singularly featured on a wall. The proportions here belies the overall size of the work. Regardless of whether one is able to appreciate Warhol’s work as art, his work has made a deep impact on the psyche of New Yorkers and Americans. Many of his works are now seen as iconic representation of his generation.
This is a photo of the roots of huge fallen tree in Mariposa Forest. This is just a mere quarter of the underside that stood over 10 feet high.
The Mariposa Forest is located just a few miles south of Yosemite Valley, California. A forest with very old trees with a mix of different species. Periodically the trees will go through a renewal process through forest fires which the forestry authorities will allow so as to keep the forest alive. An odd concept at first but without the fires much of the trees will not have the nutrients needed to keep growing – or for the forest to replenish itself.
See this GOOGLE MAP LINK to locate the forest.
The Brooklyn Bridge is an old bridge that is undergoing some repairs but it’s still a popular place for both tourists and visitors to the city. Sunset is the best time to be there to catch the spectacular light on the bridge and the twilight colours over the water. This image was converted to black and white to take away any distraction of the two key focal points of the image. The skyline and the intricate lattice of steel cables.
The view from the Empire State cannot be adequately described in words. Every time I am in New York, I find myself returning to the top to photograph the great skyline. Truly a concrete island but it has so much to offer to visitors. Especially photographers who enjoy street shooting.
On the last day of my trip to Hanoi in March 2011 I noticed that the alley ways in the Old District all had differing uses and sizes. Some were wide enough for cars to get through while many are just about three body lengths wide allowing motorbikes and lots of wires and clothes hanging out of windows. This one alley I chanced upon was just dimly lit bare concrete with no windows and hardly any light flowing through but a small doorway on the right about 20 feet into the alley. I just happen to have my camera in hand when this boy came out of the shadows with his bicycle and he stopped just for a moment to snap this and he disappeared back into the darkness .
This was taken just minutes before the sun set and the rain that lasted for 20 minutes stopped in time for me to capture the rays creating a brief rainbow over the canyon. Taken from the South Rim.
Here is a series of Photo Art images inspired by my good friend and world renown photographer Mr John Clang who is based in New York. He pushed me to seek the artistry in photography and try to find means to release the creative juices to move the spirit. Took me awhile to find my way and now I keep my eyes open to ideas on how I can adapt things to creatively develop images.Each of these images are available for large print framing. Contact me for details through the ‘Licensing’ link at the top of the page.
