Cappadocia in Central Turkey
My favorite place of the whole trip. A magnificent spectacle of earth, hill, and stone.
Kapistahan ng Sto. Nino de Tondo
An old post I forgot to upload on Tumblr. January was quite a busy month. May na ngayon, has it been that long? Wow!
Yesterday’s solo walk.
Wanted to take photos of the protest originally, but got a bit lost. I did see the marchers late in the afternoon, but by then, I was already up in the LRT-1 station.
While the others were taking a dip by the waterfall, I couldn’t help but be fixated on this lovely spiderweb hanging on a branch.

One of the oldest cities in the world, Istanbul, formerly known as Constantinople, was the capital of the Byzantine Empire, then the seat of the Ottoman regime. It is now the cultural capital of the Republic of Turkey.
A selection of photos from various places in Istanbul: Topkapi Palace, Ayasofya, the Bosphorus, etc.
Personal documentation. Evidently, I like taking photos of strangers and birds. More photos to follow.
It was very tempting to shoot the usual straight up portraits of people on the streets, like I always do when we’re visiting HK. But this time I was determined to stick to a particular theme. This series is mostly inspired by the cramped in-between spaces between the many buildings of Hong Kong. In general, “between” is the best word I can use for this series of photos. In between surfaces and places, transitioning; these were quite hard to shoot without looking like a complete idiot :))
Photos taken in: Hung Hom, Mongkok and Tsim Sha Tsui

Firecrackers accidentally explode without warning as the blast hits this man on the forehead. New Year.
