Photographed in Myanmar. While traveling in a long boat on Inle Lake we passed many houses that are located in the water. I took this shot while passing his house.

Right in the middle of the dense Goias Cerrado, there is a community of escaped ex-slaves living in peaceful manner and that only recently come back into contact with the white man. A simple life and suffering was the price paid for their freedom.

New on 500px : I’m flying, high up in the sky♪ ~⌒(・・)⌒~ by Carrie_QQ by Carrie_QQ

A very famous spot in Hong Kong, I visited there with my parents 2 years ago. The anvil-shaped building named ‘The Peak Tower’, has a large viewing platform called ‘Sky Terrace 428’ is the landmark and also the highest point on Hong Kong Island.

For me, the tower is just like a space ship…under the so blue sky.

Let’s SIMLE while being high up near the SKY 🙂


The Peak, Hong Kong:

Forest scenes are very challenging for me. To find simplicity in chaos takes a special way of seeing. It takes a certain mood.. a cohesiveness with my environment.

I had been walking the forest for nearly two hours looking for a scene that I could be satisfied with. I just couldn’t do it. Friends I was shooting with were photographing scenes that I had walked past and didn’t even consider and they would come up with something really nice. I wasn’t in that zone. I was flustered. Pissed.

Frustrated, I gave up on the forest and walked towards the creek for a consolation photo while my friends retired to the meeting area for beers, conversation, and good company. I HAD to get at least something I could consider a keeper.

We had great light all day long. The thick canopy diffused the harsh light into yellows and greens. It lit up the vine maples and moss. The weather was perfect. The situation was perfect. Great conditions, good friends, nature, my camera.. and yet here I was in a sour mood.

As I took off towards the creek I saw one last stand of vine maple trees and figured ‘Why not?’. I walked over, sat down, put the sun in a place where it would cause this sunstar effect, and this is the scene I saw. This was it. This was my shot.

I only had a couple of minutes before the sun disappeared behind the branch and I lost this composition. I set up, checked my settings, and started shooting. I finally started to feel good. I found the yin to my yang and it was represented in the tree shape.

Needless to say.. my friends saw me walking back up with the biggest smile on my face.

A huge thanks to Alex ‘aNorg’ Noriega for his direction in the processing of this photo, his mentorship, and his friendship. If you want to up your post-processing game.. he can teach you how.
