Imaginary Grid

This is DP’s Photo Challenge theme from Michelle Webber: “We often superimpose a mental grid over things we photograph to help with composition. This week, let’s go literal.” I had already posted a Literal Grid but with this image, I will imagine one. Perhaps, the imaginary grid is the one we are not aware of. […]

This week, let’s go literal.” Just coincidentally, yesterday I had shot the new grid of Amsterdam Central Station’s roof. It reads Amsterdam. If I ever get a chance, I will shoot it […]

Sites like these are present all over Europe, and serve as cruel reminder of the deadliest conflict in human history that lasted from 1939 to 1945.  Marked by mass deaths of civilians, including the Holocaust […]

Here the interests of Europe and the Middle East converged. They united in supporting the Kurds fight in Kobani to defeat the so-called Islamic State. This is my answer to Daily […]

Angular Sunset

This week’s DP Photo Challenge is: Angular “Not to put too fine a point on it, though this week, we challenge you to show us what “angular” means to you.” I chose this photo of a sunset taken from a moving train. At the moment I crossed a bridge and saw the sun behind another angular […]
