Leiden – First Impressions

First impressions of Leiden, a small city in the Netherlands.

I’m here for a symposium on “Heritage as Aid and Diplomacy in Asia” and was lucky enough to get blessed with a little sunlight after the first day of lectures ended. All photos were taken with my iPhone 5s. 


Photography 101: Architecture

Since I didn’t have a lot of time to take new photos lately, I chose a photo from my trip to New York. On this day, New York City was so foggy that the sky-scrapers were half buried underneath this mysteriously beautiful┬áthick whiteness. My photo “In a dream” was taken on the same day.

It’s not an architecture shot per se but I really do like this angle. Plus, it looks really good in black and white, in my opinion.
