France: Ambialet

by on Apr.16, 2014, under Day, Photography, Smörgåsbord

Afternoon trip to the picturesque French village of Ambialet, which is located right in the middle of a neat little bend in the Tarn river (map).

The final photos were taken in one of the many tunnels along the D172 road that you need to take to get to Ambialet… and while some are not even lit (!!), most are barely wide enough for two cars… even our little rental (Nissan Note).

Vesper Sports Bar

by on Mar.08, 2014, under Smörgåsbord

I opened my very own sports bar last month, which is why my photography has taken a turn to the quiet side…

Either way, if you find yourself in the neighborhood, stop by for a drink!

Located just over an hour north east of Toulouse, in the Tarn region of France… this would be my home for some work/play for 2 weeks.

No, I haven’t fallen off the planet… as some of you may know I have left Shanghai for good and am now living up in the Philippine highlands.  Just in time for Super Typhoon Yolanda… what an experience that was.

But yeah, just a quick note that I’m back online and in the business of polishing images… so much goodness coming here soon… a teaser to start (taken in France):

BE: Wilrijk & Duvel

by on Sep.10, 2013, under Day, Photography, Smörgåsbord

Certainly not my most exciting post here, but arrived in Amsterdam early that Thursday morning then drove down to Wilrijk-Antwerp, Belgium to get some paperwork sorted.  Pictured here is “down town” Wilrijk, with the town hall and main shopping street.  Then of course I had to go check out the bakery that a cousin of mine just recently opened, Banket & Bakkerij De Swaene, located right behind the new town hall and police station.  Sensational bread and pastries!

The rest of the day was spent nosing around the Duvel Brewery, but I couldn’t get in without a prior reservation, damn it!

Yes, I’ve been AwayFromKeyboard for a while now… no, I haven’t fallen off a cliff into the deep dark abyss!

Instead I had been traveling abroad (Netherlands, Belgium, France and Andorra) for work and some play.  I captured photos of meteors and castles and a whole bunch of other goodies, so expect some mind-blasting photography here soon.
