Ipanema beach at the end of day. I love this time of the day when the last bits of sunlight creep across the mountain and illuminate the haze washed in from the sea. I love walking along the beach at this time of the day and to be part of the last activities before night falls.

Rio de Janeiro is my secret second home. I've lived in the city and come back whenever I can. Here I have my little corners I like to visit and one of my perennials is walking along Aterro and taking photos of the Pão de Açucar or Sugarloaf Mountain. While here I thought I share my "little souvenirs", a random selection of photos of moments that for me symbolize being just here.

More of the Gran Canal glittering in the evening sun. I'm quite fascinated by this effect. In this photo selection old meets new and we are back to the present day reality of Venice. Gondola as a pass-time getting in the way of modern traffick.
I felt both pictures while capturing a similar moment are quite different in their atmosphere and I could not quite make up my mind which one to chose. So I thought I share both. What do you think? Any preferences?

Spending three days in Venice gave me the opportunity to explore a city with streets made of water. As the sun was setting, I could not resist catching the gondola against the light mesmerized by the sparkle of the water creating a timeless silhouette.

Back at the park noticing the change of season. This time round I noticed some shy evidence of Spring bringing in new colours and clothing. The leaves are now sitting at the tips of the branches waiting for that moment of warmth that says 'Winter is over'.

Time for some colours! It's been grey and cold and I needed some colour in my life and on my blog. Street art photography is quite a big thing now and there are many sites such as flickr where the photographers share their latest findings. And, having enjoyed this little hunt myself for some years, today I feel drawn to settings where art and city meet and the art is touched by the city.

Back in the streets of London, I've taken my little project onto the platform and into the train. To me this environment had a similar feel to the pedestrianised areas and tunnels - anonymous, timeless and lonely. On our own, on our way, without looking much around or connecting to the world around us.

Our world. It does not stop to amaze me. Fascinated by the interplay of mountains and clouds, blue and white I felt this one goes with the theme but stands apart. A great lover of nature, I feel amazed of how peaceful and extraordinary our world looks from above. And with every photo, I'm again amazed about nature's beauty.

Continuing to explore the perspective of looking down and trying to catch the intricate differences in texture and detail. This is a perspective of landscape photography I've grown most fascinated with and would love to explore further. Guess I need to make friends with a pilot who'd allow me to come along ...

Back at one of my favourite perspectives. I'm fascinated with the perspective from above and amazed how much detail I can capture. Trying to remember the many photographers who've inspired me to continue looking down, the most recent inspirations that come to mind are works of Andreas Gursky and Edward Burkynsky.

Back on the streets in London and pursuing my little street photography project. There is a certain scenery I feel drawn to. In this underpass I was fascinated by relationship between the people and the space.
