Florence, Italy, taken on December 19, 2013
At dusk, when the sky hadn’t gone completely dark at 5pm in December, Florence became lit up by streetlights on both sides of the Arno river. I had planned to be at the Piazzale Michelangelo (in the far distance in this photo) for a sunset from the hill with my dad, but train delays ruined the plan 😦 Still, old Firenze looked beautiful in the early evening!

Tim Hortons is as representative of the Canadian culture and spirit as is hockey. Every neighbourhood has its own local Tim Hortons stores and growing up in Toronto, we were never too far from one of them – very convenient when you’re doing your morning coffee run or if you’re craving a midnight donut!

The first time I went to Nuit Blanche, I was amazed at “Walk Among Worlds”, an installation by Máximo González that was composed of 7000 inflated balls, each representing one million people on this planet. The sheer size of this display was overwhelming! I was glad they were not balloons…or else I would stay far, far away from this exhibition…
Bordeaux, France, taken on January 1, 2011
When I lived in Bordeaux, I passed by a street where white discs were sticking out from the surrounding walls. I had been curious about them for the longest time and till now I don’t understand what they are. Maybe…it is just a peculiar piece of art?!
Shanghai, China, taken on August 27, 2010
Shanghai’s skyline as viewed from the Bund is perhaps the lovelist city skyline I’ve ever seen. When I took this photo six years ago, I was using a very basic point-and-shoot and ended up with a slanted, grainy image – luckily Lightroom was able to rescue it moderately. I will be going to Shanghai again at the end of the year and hope to recapture this beautiful skyline!
