When I first arrived in Hong Kong in 2015 I thought the New year eve would be a perfect time to practice firework shooting. I went to the Tsim Tsa Tsui promenade since 9 pm to get a good spot for shooting but I was a newbie back then. All the photos were either overexposed, underexposed or wrong timing. I shrugged and thought 'Well, maybe next year'. Then, one day in 2016, my mom came to visit me and we walked along the Nathan road for sightseeing. Suddenly, police officers came to close down the... continue reading

My sister started studying in China in 2012 and I had the opportunity to visit her multiple times during her stay there. I always stayed for about a month each time so I can experience closely the culture, people and what interested me most as a photographer - life on the street. I ditched my DSLR just before my first trip to China for a mirrorless fixed-lens Fuji camera in pursuit of rediscovering my favorite photography genre - street photography. The lenses and the bulky camera... continue reading
I love food. Especially food from other countries. So whenever I travel, I try to taste something new. Ofcourse in China, the country of my wife, I skipped the grasshoppers and sharks on a stick. Instead I went for the steamed buns you can buy on the street. Grasshopper and snake I did try in the end though and to my suprise they weren't bad at all, but the steamed buns stay my absolute favorite. So what is your favorite streetfoodO, and it can be crowded in China :) continue reading
In 2014 I visited Yellow Mountain. With the fog hanging between the peaks of the mountains it looks like a fairy tale. This week another two of the Yellow Mountain pictures were sold. In total 35+. I wrote a post about my visit to Yellow Mountain:First, four hours by bus from Hefei to Zhaixicun, then by cable car through a thick layer of fog. Fifty meter before arriving at the terminal station of the cable car the fog disappeared and suddenly it was a sunny day. Yellow... continue reading

While walking on the City Wall of Xi'an I noticed that there were quite a few groups doing communal activities. Such as gymnastic exercises as you can see above. However, playing music and singing is also very popular. In the evening, on the squares of Xi'an, you will find a large number of groups dancing. I have been told that to join a group you have to come every evening. And each group comes early to make sure that have a nice spot on the square. It was shame that it was too dark... continue reading
