An open mind

For several years now, I have walked the streets of London. Like most popular cities in Europe, the streets are cluttered with buildings. Some older than I am and others a lot more recent but each as fascinating as the next. Common to many, London has a wide variety of architectural styles from a variety…

Photographing London

Living in London makes sense that it will be the most photographed city in all of the images that I’ve created. Although I am quite bias, it is a very beautiful city. One thing that is clear about London is the diversity of culture as well as the diversity in its architecture. This city’s architectural…

Travel and Inspiration

I’ve been quite stagnant lately both creatively, mentally and emotionally. For the past decade or so, photography has been my outlet and also a way for me to figure things out. However, it hasn’t been effective for a while so I have been contemplating travelling more and more. It got me thinking as why this…

Negative space and minimalist photography

After writing my first ebook, I did not expect to write another. A few months after publishing my first ebook, I came across a thread discussing why some images are described as fine art. Although, the word fine art is now more widely used, there’s still a lot of debate on what is considered a…

Photography Failures

A key lesson that I learned in photography is that consistency is key. As a way to keep myself accountable and be consistent, I chose to start a photography blog. Before publishing my first post, I did some research. One of the most common advice given were to only share your best images. Same goes…

Looking up for a view

When it comes to architecture, looking up is inevitable. Especially in a place like London with all of its skyscrapers. Sooner or later, you end up pointing your camera towards the sky. Some architectural elements can also only reveal their full effect when viewed from below. This particular view demonstrates how powerful this perspective is…

Unexpected Lessons

They are many reasons why I would never claim to be a patient person. I find myself losing interest mid-conversations and very often when watching movies. This particular personality flaw has not been aided in any shape or form in this digital age. I get frustrated when my computer slows down or when my phone…
