The Pantheon, Rome
Piazza della Rotonda on a warm spring evening. The resting place of Renaissance artist Raphael and other luminaries, the Pantheon is also interesting for the circular "window" in its dome that leaves the temple open to the elements. Try a visit on a rainy day.
Street Party, Rome
The Trastevere district of Rome lays claim to being the most traditional part of the Eternal City. Open to debate I'm sure, but there is simply no argument about the authenticity of its Roman flavour. And speaking of flavour, it's also home to my favourite pizza place Pizzeria Ai Mami.
Nights of Future Past, Rome
It's hard to think of any other man-made thing that inspires the same sense of awe and introspection as the Colosseum. The weathered giant stands across the ages as a reminder of our mortality and the brevity of our lives. Carpe diem my friends.
To Work, Hong Kong
Making the most of my jetlag, I was up before dawn to see the usually bustling metropolis come drowsily to life. One by one, the morning shift shouldered their overcoats and responsibilities to make their way in. The shadows reaching across the wall of the converted pawn shop fills the metaphor of the daily grind with poignant urgency.
Art Yard, Hong Kong
Like discovering a strawberry in your oatmeal, it is so refreshing to find a spontaneous burst of artistic expression in a place you would only expect to find industry and commerce. The local community had converted the entryway of an apartment block into an exhibit.
Urban Heritage, Hong Kong
A quilting of the vibrant colours and vintage imagery from my hometown. Just looking at the images, I can already smell the distinct mix of street food and exhaust, and hear the din of traffic and barking Cantonese that tells me instantly I'm in Hong Kong.
