Guangzhou, China, taken on December 21, 2016
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.

Watching the colourful Swiss daily life go by behind a beautiful gate in Basel during the first stop in my first Swiss trip.
Reykjavik, Iceland, taken on January 28, 2014
Reykjavik is an attractive city with many things that make it unique, including its public art. By the waterfront you can find this sculpture, Islandsvardan, erected on a pile of rocks.
Glasgow, Scotland, taken on January 16, 2016
The one day last winter where snow accumulated in Glasgow, someone decided to show their creativity by giving life to this little snowman, whom I encountered on the way home. Hello, but goodbye soon!
