Barb & Mike

Everyone on the internet, please meet Barb & Mike. These guys are the type of people that when you find ’em, you do everything in your power to keep them in your life. Ever since Barb & Mike befriended us when we first arrived to Houston, it’s been nothing by a pleasure to know them. Come and visit, we’ll...

Morning pastels

Sometimes it’s worth getting up early to catch a glimpse of what a Houston fall morning can deliver. There was a full week of this view on my ride to work heading east along Woodway Drive; warm tones in the distance, the building ahead reflecting the early cool tones of a few minutes before the sunrise. Breathtaking. Tap to view...

Tulum / Las Vegas

Finally had a chance to put up some photos from last year’s Tulum/Las Vegas trip (tap to see full gallery). Tulum, in Mexico, is a beautiful beach area about two hours drive south of Cancun. If you want to avoid a Bali-like tourist experience, I highly recommend driving out of Cancun immediately after you fly in, and bypassing...

Boston / Toronto / NYC

Long overdue (again) but here are a bunch of photos from a recent trip to North East USA (and Canadia). Chronological order of the trip is as follows: Boston, Massachusetts — on the weekend the Boston Red Sox won their first baseball championship on home soil in 96 years (a really big deal!) Toronto, Canada New York City The big photo...

Ben Brooks has a good theory as to why they spend the time and money improving the camera in ways more meaningful than megapixels or fancy gimmicks[1. Apple have introduced a panorama feature which looks akin to Microsoft’s...

Dalla

Salbjörg Rita Jónsdóttir (Dalla) is an Icelandic photographer. She is a master of the Lensbaby lens. A master. I have followed her work for years, and I feel compelled to share it with you. Enjoy.

The architexture of Penang

Last weekend had a public holiday attached to it in Malaysia. My birthday was on Friday so Kelly and I travelled to Penang for the weekend and the Monday-off. Penang is an island off the west coast of Malaysia, about four hours drive from Kuala Lumpur. As is always the case on long weekends, many of then locals living in the city go home...

SOOC

Here’s an image I shot last night during a storm in KL (tap for a larger version). This is straight out of camera (SOOC) and I’ve done nothing to the image other than crop out a bit of the sky. It’s shot looking North-East from my balcony, towards Genting Highlands. Looking North West it was completely dark with storm...
