Asr

I’ve found myself on an island somewhere in the middle of the Indian Ocean in a country most people couldn’t point out on a map much less have even heard of. I don’t really know how but here I am. It all happened quite fast. It was Christmas night and rain thrashed on my window in my dark room as I watched silent lightning illuminate white amorphous and pulsing light beyond a black oceanic abyss west of Colombo.

Drift Beyond… Photoshop fun.

The evening my friends and I returned from Chichen Itza and the cenote in Ik Kil, we went to the small market at the resort, grabbed a few drinks and snacks to make ourselves comfortable sitting on the balcony looking out to dark waters while listening to some chill music to end the night. It really was quite unforgettable. Continue reading

Where fire fell

“Swim dis way! C’ mon!” This crazy Hawaiian in a sarong whom I paid 20 bucks to take me out surfing at night says. It’s my very first time on a surfboard and I’m on my belly paddling as hard as I can in warm black water. “We need to swim past dat jetty and stay dher. Dah tide will keep pulling us back.” We’ve stopped and I’ve propped myself up to sit on the surfboard. I’ve never quite experienced anything like this. There’s so much activity, so many lights on the shore from towering hotels. So many starbursts from far off boats out on the horizon. Yet it’s quiet and hear only the sound of gentle waters. I wonder for a split moment if this is what paradise in outer space would feel like. Continue reading

Oahu, Hawaii 2015 Select Photos

Hello everyone. So a few of you that follow my Facebook Page or Instagram know that I traveled to Hawaii for a few days and of course I took just a few photographs. I’ve been around the island of Oahu before but this time I was able explore at my leisure and take greater advantage of Oahu’s seemingly infinite photogenically rich content. Below are my selected favorite photographs. Pictures taken with a Nikon D5500 and a GoPro Hero 4 Silver. Edited in Lightroom 6. I hope you all enjoy.

Sydney, Australia 2015 Select Photos

What a wonderful city, Sydney. I felt like I was in a more laid back, roomier, and sunnier London. That being said, Sydney definitely has it’s own world class identity. It did rain for a few days towards the end of the trip but that didn’t bother me. As usual I don’t really like to say too much in a photo gallery so without further adieu, here are my select photos from my trip to Sydney, Australia. Cheers!
