Do you See what I see - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

I love traveling on water surface, especially when it's the dark mirrors in the Peruvian Amazon that reflect everything they see, only to be disturbed by the passing canoe, or skiff in our case.

Who knew, the swaying reflections in the Amazonas made me reminisce one certain image that I made in Tianzifang (田子坊), Shanghai years ago?  Oh, that graceful glide through the balmy spring air, only to be finished by a flick in the corner of the qipao dress (旗袍).  

Do you see what I see?

Photography Requires Strong Will Power - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

Rialto Bridge (Ponte di Rialto, in Italian) is one of the most photographed landmarks in Venice.  I get its historical significance being the oldest bridge across the Grand Canal.  Personally, I don't think it's that artistically done.  Take a look at how its clunky body blocks most of the view into the water-way and the buildings behind it, you'll see my point.  But, it does offer an opportunity to get above the water.  And water is what I love.

So, despite all the touristic activities around me, I saw a perfect canvas on water which I could create on.  For me, staying laser-sharp focused in that setting is not that difficult.  But if you are interested in going to the Rialto Market only to rub shoulders with many other tourists that followed the tour guide books there, sitting by the canal to sip wines and watch people (mostly tourists, again), feeding one of the many pigeons that have infested Venice, or rescuing the sunglass that went down the the bridge (this was supposedly an accident), you'd need some (really strong) will power to stay focused on the beauty that makes Venice Venice.  

I hear music gliding across the surface of the water.  Do you?

P.S. Give a holler, in the comment below, if you want to see more images made from Venice. :-)

Sometimes, the Best is Reserved for the End - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

I'm sort of a lazy bone.  So any activity that requires physical efforts from me would pretty much not be on my list to do, hiking being one of them.  Unless there's beautiful scenery, me and this word has no association at all. In my recent trip to Taiwan, I took a leap of faith and went on a hike for the sake of hiking.  And thanks to such "faith", I was rewarded, at the end of the hike, with this beautiful stone bridge tucked away in a quiet corner ofSun Link Sea National Park.  The emerald water and the fall colors were just extra bonus. :-)
