Colour My World – Grey

Grey. That most neutral of colours. Detached, disengaged, doubtful. Neither white nor black. Day nor night. The morning mist. The shadowy veil of twilight.

The Synchronised Scramble Of Shibuya

Ten traffic lanes. Five pedestrian crosswalks. All converging onto the most iconic intersection in the world. An attraction in its own right. When the lights change, traffic comes to a halt on ALL ten lanes. And this huge mass of people – an estimated 2500 at any given time, and a whopping 2+ million per day! – surge forward in every direction in […]

The last time I ventured into the area was in search of a particular shade and texture of hand made paper for invites to my stone furniture sale! That, I am ashamed to admit, was over a decade ago.

Asian Silhouettes

I have few silhouettes in my archives and they are all purely accidental. Considering the drama, mood and emotion they conjure up, I have no idea why I haven’t consciously gone after more back-lit shots. Fingers crossed in the hope that the Serengeti, next month, will turn up some good photo ops. Until then, here is a gallery that evokes some of our more […]
