Summer is the season for fireworks in Japan and one of the things that Japan is known for. Its had a long tradition and its an art form with many “hanabi” festivals going on throughout Japan. I managed to catch one that had 1500 fireworks that lasted for about an hour. Not before getting to […]
One of the things to do whilst in the middle east is to go sand dune bashing. Its a little like skiing but on sand in a 4×4 with the A/C on. The photos don’t do the slopes much justice and it was a lot of fun. I was surprised that we did not roll […]
I’ve had the opportunity to visit Doha on one of my trips. This was my first to Doha and to the middle east for that matter. Had a little time over the weekend so I managed a little bit of sight seeing. The heat was too much to stay outdoors for too long so I […]
Harjyuku/Omotesando areas are always interesting for street photography. Tons of people with events going on and they are all dressed up. Being the Golden Week holidays, I expected that there would be a lot fewer people but it didn’t seem that way. MAC had an interesting marketing event going on and that added some colour […]

I got to go to my first baseball game in Japan at the Yokohama Stadium. I’m not really into baseball but was invited by friends and they had managed to get box seats so I thought with some good company and beer it would be good fun. The weather was excellent. Had it been as […]
Manila is a fascinating place. The contrast between the rich and the poor hits your right when you step into the city. I’ve not had the opportunity to see much of the remaining of the city mainly due to time constraints but one thing I’ve noticed is they seem to have a large number of […]
I recently made a quick trip to Ohio and Seattle. Didn’t have any time for sightseeing, didn’t really visit downtown Seattle either. BUT I did manage to get one day of good weather in Seattle and happened to stay at a hotel by the water. Here’s what I got to see. This was my ride […]
