2018 Stockholm: Cyclist In Winter Morning
You would have thought that with a flight that lasts more than 16 hours, I would have gotten more pictures from Sweden. But I was here for work, not leisure.

Singapore 2013: Quiet Foggy City Afternoon
It’s about time I start updating my gallery of street photography images. Digging through my archives, it is interesting to see how my shooting style has changed over the years.

Definitely a tip that any country could adopt for its own.
