Morning Light

Shot in Xiapu, Fujian, China, famous for its fisherman and farmers for seaweed, a small town in China known to have one of her most beautiful beaches.  The morning sun is still soft here, the low angle sun cast an interesting contrast on those shallow sand dunes, and what a calm scene.   Capture with Phase One P65+ on Hasselblad H2 camera, HC 50-110 lens.

Once was among the most popular building material in South East Asia, including China, bamboo is a magical material.  Coming to modern time and concerns over green and ecological environment, bamboo again caught the attention.  Took this picture in World EXPO 2010 in Shanghai, this is the theme pavilion of Vietnam, with bamboo as its statement.

This is an image in fact I aso post on my other blog, but I thought this is an image perfectly for "Of Shadow and Light".
The original image was made for SK Jewelry, but the jewelry was cropped from this image, leaving only the faces - the face of the model herself, and the silhoutted face from her hair!

Sand Dune

A snap shot from the recent trip to Shanghai EXPO 2010, this is the theme building of UAE, a desert state riched from its oil, and make use of its oil money to build a modern, luxury country. Cleverly used metal clad for he building and the highlight and shadow from the reflection forms an interesting pattern.

Portrait of a leaf

Too much travel recently, I am far away from my own schedule.  A simple image taken with a beautiful camera, one of my favorite, Contax TVS Digital, shot during a meeting at Toronto, Canada. It was an easy afternoon, I walked into a small forest right next to the hotel I stayed for the meeting, during a coffee break,  with a camera on hand, I took this image.
