Color Me Green

The COEX mall in Seoul is Asia’s largest underground shopping mall. While wandering through one day, I spied this area with fabulous green lighting. Needless to say, I had to go back with camera in hand.

Strolling in Apgujeong

Strolling in Apgujeong

I wandered around the trendy Apgujeong area of Seoul on a beautiful, sunny winter afternoon. Spied this couple strolling past a construction site and couldn’t help but make a few exposures.

Myeongdong Nights

leave a comment »

Myeongdong is one of Seoul’s busiest night spots. Regardless of time of year, when the sun drops below the horizon, the vendors fill the streets and the people come out to eat, shop and play. With these images, I have tried to show what it’s like in this popular area, where the hustle and bustle seems to go as far as the eye can see.

The Gourd Seller

I shot this in the Yuyuan (Yu’s Garden) area of Shanghai. A popular tourist spot, most people come to see the architecture, to snap a few pics, and to buy knick-knacks. I like to go there to observe the goings-on, and to people-watch.

Roast Meats Culture

Passers-by peer into the window of the local roast and grilled meats place. I made this image in the Changning district of Shanghai. Windows like this dot the bustling streets of most Chinese cities and, come to think of it, most Chinese communities around the world. This stuff is our fast food.

Into The Zone

Into The Zone

I made this image last week, during a hot, steamy day in Singapore. It was probably the hottest day that week and I found the mugginess to be extremely uncomfortable. But I now miss it.

Sunset on Marina Bay, Singapore

Sunset on the Bay

I’m home, after a very quick two weeks in China and Singapore. Getting to see family and friends is always a special treat. A special “Thank You!” is due to Bernard, Cal, Chris, Daniel, Dennis, Eric, Hock How, Ivan, Ivory, Jes, Kam, Lucy, Michael, Pete, Siew Peng and Viv. Thank you for taking time out of your busy lives to meet with me, eat with me, drink with me, shoot with me, sing with me and just chill with me. I miss you already. And very big “Thank You!” is also due to Yui, who took care of my life here while I was away. This photo is for you.
