Days are just coming and going, they’re all exactly the same. No real news to share, so it’s time for another umbrella.
Maybe tomorrow will be differ… What am I talking about ? It will be the same!
This one felt appropriate for today.
All photos have been edited, packed and WeTransfered to their destinations. Almost 40000 photos seen, around 5000 sent. It’s been going on since last year, but it’s finally done. Yay!
Maybe time for a beer!
The Beginning and The End
Sometimes things fall into place, unexpectedly. You’re going for a particular shot and, out the corner of your eye, a little extra shows up.
I was lucky.
The Umbrella Issue
The umbrellas quickly became one of the things that started showing up on the photos when I browsed through the day’s catch in the evening. They were ever-present.
I had a couple of other ideas before setting foot on the island, but this one took over.
Walking, always walking
We spent most of our time in the old part of town, the casinos were not part of the plan. We’d go back to Taipa for the night, but Macau is where we’d be for the day.
Worst Beach Ever
It was probably the worst beach I’ve ever been to. But I never thought I’d find a beach in Macau, and it felt great to visit. I ended up loving that beach, in the middle of the urban chaos of the city.
And I was there with my brother.
Taxi Line Dancer
As soon as I left the Hong Kong - Macau ferry, while waiting for my brother to show up. We were meeting after months without seeing him, on the other side of the world.
We were working on a joint exhibition. My brother would show his drawings, and I was using the trip to get a few photos for that show.
It fell through in the end, but we had a wonderful time walking the streets and talking. Longest time we spent together in years.
That one time I flew to Macau to meet my brother.
The city had been on my radar for decades (at a time I even thought about emigrating there) but somehow never even visited until my brother asked me to come.
Longer post coming later on, but bSides is back on!
