I'd been coveting this image since I arrived here. Earlier this afternoon, after a morning of thundershowers, the overcast environment provided the perfect light capture this image of the pool surrounded by the rest of the buildings housing the rooms of...

Égalité

This was shot earlier today using my DJI Mavic Pro. This is the tennis court at the Holiday Inn Resort in Batam. I haven't flown the drone since November 2017 as a result of either not finding enough time, or not finding a location in Singapore where I...

In-your-face advertising

Seen at a local supermarket in Kolkata. There's a statistic out there that suggests that the average urban dwelling human is exposed to 5,000 ads per day. Here in Kolkata at a local Indian supermarket, they may have taken that a step further by placing an...

From Kolkata

This is the last day of my trip to Kolkata. I've been visiting my parents and helping them out with a few items that they needed me to step in. I've had to go into central Kolkata a few times, and have had the pleasure of getting caught in traffic in the...
