It’s been 1 year photoblogging …..

Today marks the day that I have been photoblogging for 1 year. Time really flies….. First and foremost, I would like to thank all my readers who pop in here and read about my photojournalistic writings and photographs.

I believed my photoblogging still has a long journey ahead before my photographs speak for themselves or even complemented with my photojournalistic writing, would my photographs become more “powerful”. Photojournalistic style is something that I am developing and working …

Reflections on my Shanghai Holiday

It had been a few weeks since I came back from my Shanghai trip. This holiday was a very much needed personal holiday, no words can describe how much I needed it. Neither would the reasons behind it be written down here. Travelling to China and witnessing its growth, it dawned upon me how much we can learn from travelling to different countries. The culture, the natural and man-made environment, people, local cuisine and lifestyle. Taking many photographs of the place I visited, gave me many great memories and friendships. The photos I took at the heritage listed/protected Zhou Zhuang …

However, before I went to the …
