A Taste of España

by on Jun.30, 2011, under Adventures

Recently I haven’t been able to travel as much as I would like to. Therefor I have to relive my memories of traveling the world through the images that I have captured. All my travels have been wrapped into a small amount of time but I have met some great people and I’ve had tons of fun. I hope my images will inspire some people to travel and explore the world with an open heart and open mind.

Showing some love for Japan

by on Jun.28, 2011, under Adventures

Continuing with my barrage of photos edited from my past trips around the globe, this set comes from Tokyo, Japan. By going through all my old images, I found a lot of things that I haven’t been practicing lately. Hopefully this will revive the creativity in me. For now, enjoy these images people!

A full moon requests some pics!

by on Jul.10, 2009, under Adventures

Hi All, its been quite some time since I’ve updated my blog! I must be better about this!!! The first two pictures are from Taiwan, the thrid one is from Japan and the 4th is from South Korea.(They all have captions so check em out!)  Although my travels are over, I feel that my journey through each country has given me a new view of who I am and what I want. It has also inspired me to think differently and appreciate things for what they are, no matter big or small! Anyway I’ll be posting more pics soon Enjoy everyone!

I went to Dan Shui (shallow water), and there was some magical “jacks” shaped rocks that help divert the water when it comes crashing to shore… really breath taking and unusually beautiful.

Picture hunting @ Long Shan Temple (dragon mountain temple) + Spark + Primo

by on May.18, 2009, under Adventures

REWIND 05.08.09

Today I woke up a little later then usual, around 11:30 and had some lunch with my aunt, uncle and cousin at they house. It was a simple lunch of leftovers from the previous night, but was still delicious. After lunch and a short nap(teehee)… i went to go explore Long Shan Temple.

Before I went to the temple, I had to make one of my multi-daily trip to 711. I picked up a milk like container of “fruit drink”. Damn this drink was good, fresh fruit in liquid form def up there on my list of things to drink from 711. below are some pics of the fruit drink and some pics of the awesome buses haha yea right. One thing I did notice here is that people are more polite while on public transportation. People are every so willing to let go of their seats for the elderly, women and children. One other cool thing is that in the subway system (MRT) there are escalators. On these escalators, as people are going up and down, someone here has created an ingenious way creating a fast lane and a slow lane on the escalator! They simply drew a line right in the middle of the step, if you are in no hurry, you step to the right, creating a single line. If you are in a hurry, you walk straight up the left side!! Its so logical its blew my mind! haha!img_1459img_1465img_7866

Anyway, I digress. When i get to the temple, there are masses of people and i find myself waiting at the front to get a perfect shot with no people in it. Unfortunately there was no such opportunity so i just started snapping away. This temple was one of the larger temples in taiwan and there were masses of people there praying for good luck in health, work, etc etc… I got some good shots of people doing their thing, but i felt kinda guilty, so i prayed that they wouldn’t be offended! 8)

After the temple, I went to my friend Sylvia clothing shop (Unik Clothing). She sells Affliction, Monarchy, and Sinful clothing at a hip location near SOGO (shopping center). I would dub this place a much more tame Melrose (trendy shops, a bunch of young people with money to spend). I did like the area and felt calm and content strolling through the streets. I chilled there for a bit and made plans w/ her and her friends to go clubbing later that night.

So that night we hitup 2 clubs, Spark and Primo. Both clubs were upscale and near Taipei 101. Clubbing felt the same as it does in LA, but the songs are just 6 months old and no one knows how to dance… such a burn! Anyway we hit up those 2 clubs and called it a night! 8)
