Filmshots | Japan

During our memorable trip to Japan last November, I took the chance to allow myself to view the world through my lens again. Lately, I’ve stopped photography for the most part and just allowed myself to be photograph only what I want to remember. I want to remember, the blooming of these beautiful flowers even as the trees shed their leaves in preparation for Winter. To remember my wonderful husband who is constantly behind the lens and always being my favourite travel partner. Remember that moment when my best friend dressed up in a Kimono and walked the streets of Arashiyama. To celebrate our friendship and to be thankful that she is a wonderful Mama to my godson, C.

For the love of Kobe

Mornings are usually best spent wandering down Osaka’s Kuromon Market eating up a feast. Even after a week, one can still wander down the Market and never get bored. Traveling with a child means taking things slow and we loved it. We took the train from Osaka to Kobe via Kyoto. The ride was really enjoyable as it meant that we could take all the time we wanted and this makes a huge difference with a child in tow. We stopped at Kyoto for lunch, got really yummy chocolates from the Kit Kat Chocolatory and visited the Pokemon centre. If you’ve not figured out by now, we are basically 4 grown up kids gallivanting around Japan with a 14 month in tow. Kobe is a beauty. Whilst our main purpose was really to have Kobe Beef for dinner, we still managed to make our way up to the Kobe Ropeway and Herb Garden for an afternoon stroll. The view from the top was breathtaking, but the ride up on the ropeway saw my Acrophobia taking …

Filmshots | Taipei

Back in March, we took a impromptu trip to Taipei with 2 of my closest friends. As it was Ben’s very first trip to Taipei and we were really excited to show him our favourite haunts. We ate loads of street food that were in our stomachs before photographs could be taken. Being able to pick up my camera after a long hiatus away from it feel strange and it took me a while to adjust back to really “seeing” again. I’m glad I’m back on my feet and since the wedding is over, it is time to get going again.

Filmshots | Bali Wanderlust

Bali is an absolute paradise for those who desires beautiful landscapes, mouthwatering food, cheap alcohol and wonderful coffee. I love a good getaway, but Bali can been overwhelming at times with thousands of tourist swarming the popular destinations. Alas, nothing remains untouched for too long in the world filled with wanderlust driven explorers.

Moments before twilight

During our trip to Bali, we headed to the beach. The coffee we had prior to our stroll to the beach was rendered useless due to the fatigue from the engagement photography session we had earlier in the day. Sunsets were always our favourite. That evening, in it’s beautiful hide and seek state, it decided to painted the sky like a beautiful painting with an array of colours that took my breathe away. He took my hand as we strolled down the beach. The closeness of him, and the way his hands holds on to mine, stirs something deep within me. Something that reminds me of how privileged I am to be his partner. In that moment, I realized, I am content and happy to travel the world with Ben. I am secure and would gladly spend the rest of my days globetrotting with only him by my side. Location: Seminyak Beach, Bali Shot with Leica M7 and Portra 400
