Pretty Cool Guy

I think he is a pretty cool guy, eh? Picture taken at an East London music festival.

Staircase Somerset

This is not an optical illusion – it’s been shot in HDR. It is a picture of a staircase in the Somerset House in London, UK. I think this is the Navy Staircase (later renamed the Nelson Stair) in the southern part of the building. Somerset House was originally a Tudor palace built in 1547 for Edward Seymour, Duke …

A Headland

A headland is a point of land, usually high and often with a sheer drop, that extends out into a body of water. This one is in Wales, UK.

Long Forgotten

A new picture from the Magnificent Seven series – the seven large cemeteries in London. This time Brompton Cemetery near Stamford Bridge (the football stadium of Chelsea FC) in South West London. The picture shows old coffins in the catacombs which were originally conceived as a cheaper alternative burial to having a plot in the grounds of the cemetery. Compared to the …

Idyllically

An idyllic place I shot at holidays in Munich at the airport.

What Is Chess

The Game of Chess is not merely an idle amusement; several very valuable qualities of the mind, useful in the course of human life, are to be acquired and strengthened by it, so as to become habits ready on all occasions; for life is a kind of Chess, in which we have often points to …

St Pauls Cathedral London

St. Paul’s Cathedral London stood on its place since 604AD. However it was rebuild after its predecessor was destroyed in the Great Fire of London. Quite an iconic part of the London skyline it is an Anglican cathedral dedicated to Paul the Apostle. Important services held at St Paul’s include the funerals of Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington …

Dirty Jesus

“Jesus with dirty feet” Jesus had at some point dirty feet, we know that. He was also hanging out with Maria Magdalena (who was a prostitute but not necessarily even a notable sinner – and the idea, popularized by The Da Vinci Code, that Mary was Jesus’ wife and bore his child, sounds amusing). I guess from time …

Sikh Regiment

Sikh religion considers the beard to be part of the nobility and dignity of their manhood. Sikhs also refrain from cutting their hair and beards out of respect for the God-given form. Alright – let your manhood grow! British people [and the british army] are highly indebted and obliged to Sikhs for a long time. …

London Calling Band

There are lots of famous bands from London but of course a myriad of not famous bands with really good musicians as well. This band photo was taken at Southbank Centre. Btw, the title is misleading, this is not the The Clash.

Flower Pic

Taking beautiful flower pictures can be hard. What always helps is focus, diffuse lighting and a good picture editing software.

Where Is San Salvador

It might sound funny but you don’t want to know. San Salvador was considered the most dangerous city in the world in 1992 – I got rather violently mugged in El Salvador in 2003 which might makes me biased. However these are some tips from Wiki travel: Don’t walk on streets that look abandoned and …

Viva Mexico Cabrones

There’s no translation for viva mexico cabrones – so I better leave it. I love the Mexicans anyways – this one was taken in Oaxaca. There’s even a radish festival in Oaxaca I heard.

Indian Ferris Wheel

Indian actuation of a Ferris Wheel – and a rather human manual actuation. Near Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India.

Ashes To Ashes

Another picture from the Magnificent Seven – the seven large cemeteries in London. Today the Nunhead Cemetery in East London Borough of Southwark. They say it’s the least famous and celebrated of them. They were all established in the 19th century to alleviate overcrowding in existing parish burial grounds and are now pretty much left to neglected management. Which …

London City Runner

Shot at one of the many London running events (half marathon, marathon or whatsoever) + people like to dress up in running costumes.
