Melbourne is a beautiful city! I hope to return someday for another photo shoot… Staying here for a month to observe and photo shoot would be a dream come true, as there are so many beautiful architecture around the city! Finding an angle at Fed Square was pretty tough. I couldn’t decide whether I wanted a normal shot or a panorama shot; but when I took a few steps back, the scene just came into perspective.

Minato Mirai at night! Yokohama has it all. The city pretty much as everything that Tokyo has to offer, and it is only a short JR ride from where I stayed during my study abroad program. Did you know that Minato Mirai is the most ideal place for girls’ first date? It’s true! Of the girls I surveyed at my University, majority voted Minato Mirai as the number one dating site! I thought that was interesting. Now, I can’t remember what came in second, and third… But, if you happen to need ideas on where to bring your date, you know where to go ;)! You can treat me to drinks after!

My friends and I visited the Itsukushima shrine on a field trip from school. Before the trip, I was hoping for high tide, it would have been awesome to shoot HDR of Miyajima during sunset. I suppose I got to see the other side of it. Hundreds of people would be digging the seabed for clams during low tide. If you view this large, you can actually see people digging! Just after the visit to Itsukushima shrine, our group hiked up to the top of Mt. Misen with our Sensei, where you get a panoramic view of Miyajima and nearby islands. Anyway, it’s always fun to find interesting perspective on days that come unexpected.

I am always jealous of my friends who live in San Diego. They get the perfect weather every day, all year long! I think if I am to live at San Diego, I’d come out and take sunset HDRs every day! Notice the photographer on the bottom right? Maybe he comes out to shoot so often, he knows exactly where to go and setup for his shot. Well, it’s pretty amazing up here too!!! In my humble opinion…

Ervine, Joe, and I stayed in this Ryokan! Pretty isn’t it? Staying at a Ryokan was the best experience in Japan. Just before staying here, we hiked Mt. Fuji overnight to catch the sunrise. Oh man, what an experience! I’m not doing it again! Like the Japanese say, “one who never climbs Mount Fuji is a fool, and one who climbs twice is twice the fool.” It was relieving to soak in an onsen after hiking the tallest mountain in Japan. We had a delicious washoku dinner that night. After, we had the best beer I’ve ever tasted, Fujiyama Biru! Kanpai!

This was my balcony view of Totsuka in Japan. MISH stands for Meiji Gakuin International Student Housing. it’s an apartment complex that all the UC students shared during our study abroad program. My friends from Japan have been visiting, and their coming got me to reminisce all the good times we had there, from the first day we met all the buddies in building 10, to the final farewell beach party, like Ken and Andy once said, “Japan was a dream I don’t want to wake up to”. Just thinking back, like the Hanami party, the Kamakura trip, the Hiroshima field trip, the cherry picking event, the tea party, the Independence day party, the Okinawa trip, the farewell party at Yokohama, and the final farewell party at the beach, I will never forget my time in Japan! Thanks everyone! みんな、どうもありがとうございました!

Salisbury Cathedral is by far the most beautiful cathedral I’ve visited. Not only is this cathedral beautiful, it is also photography friendly! The people there greeted me warmly and allowed me to use my tripod freely. Of course, I was very discreet and respectful during my visit. I spent a lot of time in this cathedral, admiring the design and capturing it to the best of my ability. Enjoy!

This was shot within the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I believe it’s a smart idea to get yourself a Gorillapod if you enjoy visiting museums. Chances are, museums do not allow tripods around. Plus, I don’t really trust my hand when it comes to low light environments, especially when the shutter had to stay open for more than one second to get a proper exposure.

This is taken from a park at Nottingham, United Kingdom! Sadly, I can’t remember the name of the park. It does have some amazing landscapes there though! I suppose the puddle had always been there since UK rains every so often. I tried to maximize the reflection to expose the beautiful sky while keeping the puddle in its formation. I could have stayed here for a little longer, but I was paranoid of snakes hiding in overgrown weed.

The Crystals Citycenter Mall HDR! Shopping here must be amazing! The Crystals  is a short walk from the Aria and Cosmopolitan hotel and casino. There are quite a bit of interesting bits in the Crystals mall; it’s worth a visit in my opinion. Plus, it is designed well and picturesque :). After shooting, you can enjoy a fine dining at the Mastro’s Ocean Club!
