London, England, taken on January 7, 2017

London seems to be full of surprises and one other thing that I went to see recently was the Traffic Light Tree, a piece of public art near Canary Wharf.

Many sculptures are scattered around Shamian Island in Guangzhou, depicting traditional Cantonese life in the old “Xiguan” area of the city back in the days. One of my favourites is that of an elderly man taking his caged pet bird out for a walk, a rather common sight in the old days in Guangzhou.

Suzhou, China, taken on December 12, 2016

Suzhou is well known for its beautiful classic gardens and a visit to Suzhou is not complete without admiring one or two of these. The layout and decorations of each garden are intricately and elegantly designed, a true classical Chinese architectural masterpiece.
