I was also in Stockholm earlier this year in February for the Stockholm Design Week and sussing out their sophisticated recycling/composting system and culture. The two day line up organised by […]

Look up. View lying on my terrace. Banyan tree roots are always magical to look at. My second Amaryllis bulb starting to grow. World’s youngest three Michelin starred guest chef chef Max Alajmo of La Calandre served up some amazing dishes at Otto e Mezzo Hong Kong. Beet root sorbet in his saffron risotto with […]

Tried to capture the reflection of magic hour glow on the ICC building, but lacking mastery, turned out as a golden blob. Took this photo in pretty poorly lit conditions with the 50mm lens, and rested the camera on the floor to keep really still. Love this photo of Smudge and didn’t want to edit […]
