Oregon beaches

A few images taken last summer of the breathtaking beaches on the Oregon Coast. It was quite surreal to see the vast stretches of sand merging into the ocean especially at sunset when the ever-present fog appeared purple with diffused light. Goodness, those are some of the most awe-inspiring places I have ever set eyes on.

I love these images. So serene and peaceful. My particular favourites are (1) the rocky beach with the moss and (2) the sandy beach with the ocean in the background with the tufts of long grass. Looks so serene! I think the cloudiness works in your favour with the diffused lights. Thank you for sharing. Beautiful as always.

Absolutely love the last fire. Reminds me of Cape Town.

Christmas in New Orleans

I’d like to share some shots taken this December during our trip to NOLA. It was my first Christmas spent at above freezing temperatures. Below are some of the things I liked and captured.

I’ve never been to New Orleans before. How beautiful. I can totally see some French influences in the architecture.

I went to New Orleans years ago. Only wished I’d gone there with my friends. Beautiful city. Love the balconies.

Paris vs New York–the metro

Paris vs New York - the metro

This summer I’ve had the fortune to travel to two of the greatest cities in the world, Paris and NYC. In the Paris vs New York series I will share photographs of similar or opposing concepts and places from these two cities.

While I haven’t been in Paris in over a decade, I still remember it much nicer than NYC’s. Oh. How I miss France.
