Amen to Milan

_DSC8780-2-3

Fabulous coffee, art galleries, good wine, wonderful pizza, pasta… Shopping! Tasteful designs and impeccable craftsmanship on honey-coloured, luscious leather – all in a city festooned with suave, stylish and, somehow, fashionably cold and aloof people. As if I needed more reasons to justify my decamping to Milan during that bloody depressing post-new year winter.

41 Photographs, Reminiscence of Beijing

_dsc8157x

What you see when you look at travel photography? The ones untainted by smears of vanity. Realistic portrayals of the place rather than the traveller. A slice of time that freezes and transcends corporeal boundaries. Can’t you hear them move in stillness? Can you see them speak? As promised, here is a full post of photos from Beijing. 41 of them out of the 536 I took over the span of five days. Let them talk. And you listen.

This Side of Beijing

_dsc8080x

From the highly polluted air, stinky mung-bean milk to men who air their naked bellies like prized treasure on warm summer days, Beijing isn’t really the la-di-da destination darling like her other more flamboyant siblings. But as the red flag, charged with five golden stars, rises from Tiananmen Square at the crack of dawn, Beijing rises along. This is a city who has a wealth of history in her pouch, a commanding present and a limitless future willed by her unyielding dwellers. From exotic food to the Great Wall, the community spirit to the major tech players who have shored up the country’s economy and shaken the world today, AL taps on them all. Come get to know Beijing from the eyes of a five-day tourist. You will thank me for this.
