Summer and the Sea, Santorini
Is this paradise? The warm morning sun, a cool salt breeze, gently laced with the perfume of summer blossoms. Not to mention a view across the Med that simply cannot be put into words. Easy to see how the place sells so many postcards.
These neat, whitewashed villas cling from hilltop to shore on every square inch available like polished barnacles to their seaside perches. Quite a bit of fun it is to pick your way among the twisting cobbled streets that thread the way invisibly between them.
Wandering past an alleyway behind the Cafe Sao Luiz in the Chiado district of Lisbon, I was arrested by the simple but decisive play of elegant cast iron staircases against the bold yellow backdrop. One of my all-time favourite compositions.
To Work, Hong Kong
The early morning is a magical time to see this usually bustling metropolis come drowsily to life. As one worker trudges his way past this converted pawn shop, the long shadows seem to grasp at his heels. A day's work to keep poverty at bay.
Art Yard, Hong Kong
Like discovering a chocolate chip in your cookie, it's a refreshing surprise to find a spontaneous burst of artistry where you might only expect to find concrete and commerce. The local community had converted the entryway of an otherwise drab apartment block into an exhibition space.
Urban Heritage, Hong Kong
A quilting of the vibrant colours and old-school vibes from my hometown. If you've ever been a native of Hong Kong, you may be struck by the same curious thought that you can almost hear and even smell these photographs.
Open Learning, Ephesus
As a student of Scripture, it is always a thrill to set foot in these ancient, biblical places. Ephesus was a Greek city of no small renown, and the inspiring Library of Celsus is one of the remarkably well-preserved monuments that can be seen at this heritage site.
Space Port, Paris
UFO landing? The futuristic-looking cabin makes for an interesting feature against the equally interesting fascade of the Musee de l'Institut du Monde Arabe. The shutters are photosensitive metal plates that close up in the sun.
Chapelle Royale, Versailles
The stunning, two-tiered grand chapel inside the Chateau de Versailles is probably my favourite room inside Louis XIV's principal royal residence. Opulent rather than humble as you would expect from the Sun King, but still tasteful.
A brief window of sunshine on a dark, overcast day, beams down on I.M. Pei's famous glass pyramid and the magnificent fascade of the Musee du Louvre. The black, foreboding sky makes it quite the dramatic scene.
Weekend Retreat, St Albans
No phones, no TVs, just nature and the company of other pilgrims at this tranquil, converted convent. A time for reflection, a time to be still. Like cool, life-giving water for the soul.
Catwalk Soldiers, Barcelona
Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi's surreal creations are so incredible because his vision wasn't simply executed on canvas, but in real-life brick and mortar. The rooftop of the apartment block Casa Mila, popularly known as La Pedrera, is a fantasyland of the bizarre and beautiful.
