The weather was excellent on last Sunday afternoon. I went to the open area in Admiralty right in front of the Central Government Office together with Fujifilm X-Pro2 and two lenses in my bag, 23mm f2 WR and 35mm f2 WR. By coincidence, I found out there is a dragon boat race competition happening in the waterfront. So I chose to use 35mm because it is more tele and I want my images to be clean and focus only on […]
Country: Myanmar City: Yangon Camera: Leica M2 Lens: Summicron 35mm f2 v1 Film: Fujifilm Superia Premium 400 Circular train and the golden pagode shwedagon brought me to the heart of Myanmar. Yangon is unlike other part of the country, it is quite similar to other South East Asian country having roads packed with vehicles. But their kindness and friendly smile on their faces are the most unforgettable experience and something I felt different from the others. The three hour train ride […]

I always have the impression that the Agfa Vista 400 is cheap with low quality reflected on […]
Country: India City: Agra Camera: Fujifilm XE-1 Len: Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.2 v2 A day trip to Agra, visited Tajmahal and Agra fort. Weather was so nice and Taj is absolutely stunning. It was like a movie scene, everything was kept like in the old days and nothing has changed except hundreds of tuktuk in that area. Horse cart, dress code and peoples’ facial expression are all blended in nicely.
