A friend once told me that there was a town in Victoria where they planted lots of deciduous European trees that look extra colorful in Autumn. After knowing this region also boasts a few hatted restaurants and some great local seasonal produce, we decided that a foodies weekend was called for! An indulgence of taste […]

White Night, Melbourne

1 white (3 of 10)

It’s been months since I woke up so early to see the sunrise. White Night Melbourne at 5am was devoid of the usual jam-packed crowd. The balmy summer’s night carried an air of mystery and ethereal quality with the many artistic displays and installations. Occasionally we would lie on the grass or beanbags, watching trippy […]

Sitting by the sidewalk, the world passes by, At the crossroad atop the Seine river, Busy faces, carefree faces, a colourful mix of races, As the sun waves goodbye and twilight weaves its magic, The city of light comes to life. Beautiful faces, strange places, Majestic buildings sprawl as far as the eye can see, […]

Here I am in Paris! The 5 days I spent in Paris was probably my favorite time in Europe. It was a time for solo reflection and doing things entirely on my own terms. The bus stopped outside a Parisian terminal at the crack of dawn. Through my groggy state of little sleep from the […]

Dan gave me challenge before I visited my hometown Fuqin: to photograph everything in black and white with a single lens only. So I did. Behind every photo there is a small story to tell. Here’s a slice of my story… Time has definitely passed on. Every time I returned, there would be a time […]
