Reflections

January 21, 2013

I took this photo in mid-December 2012. I was walking around St. Paul’s Cathedral with a friend, and this reflection (on the surface of a sculpture) caught my eye. Given the equipment I had with me at the time, it was the only way I could capture the whole cathedral. I particularly love how the curvature of the sculpture renders the cathedral to look as if it has melted. I won’t think too deeply about what that might mean!

Alone time.

January 13, 2013

I love leaving the cell phone at home (or, switched off and out of sight), going to my favourite cafe and reading all by my self with a coffee for a few hours. I try to steal this alone time whenever I can. Which is why I feel a little bit guilty for taking this photo–this gentleman was probably doing just that, and I couldn’t resist taking a photo of him. I love the colours of this cafe (Fidel’s, in Wellington, New Zealand), and the contrast of his tidy appearance against the roughed-up decor.
