Olympus E-P3 and Olympus Zuiko 12mm f/2 lens. I miss India. Is it time for another photography trip?
I finally went to visit this place after knowing about it for few years. It’s the last surviving kampong in the modern mainland of Singapore. The place is very accessible. It’s off Yio Chu Kang road, near the Church of St. Vincent de Paul and it’s already surrounded by high rise apartments and landed houses.
These images were shot in a small village off the highway from Ajmer to Jaipur, Rajashtan, India last year. All were shot with Leica M9 and Voigtlander Color Skopar Classic 35mm f/2.5, except for the last one. These people were very friendly, inviting me and my friend for afternoon chai and I was free to
My friends and I took the midnight train from Agra to Lucknow in India when we were there October last year. We started the trip from Agra Cantonment Railway Station, which is the main train station in the city of Agra. We arrived early and I had a couple of hours to walk around the
People of Kishangarh, Rajashtan, photographed with Leica M9 and Voigtlander Color Skopar Classic 35mm f/2.5, except the last one, which was shot using Olympus E-P3 and 12mm f/2 lens.

The street was decorated with lots of lights to celebrate the Diwali day and I couldn’t get enough of rickshaw, so I kept shooting them whenever I saw one. And
I am back from India today. Covered Delhi, Jaipur, Ajmer, Pushkar, Agra and Lucknow. I was traveling light and it was quite liberating. I fit my Leica M9, four small lenses and Olympus PEN E-P3 with 12mm lens, into a small Domke ‘school bag’ (F-803) and I could walk for hours without breaking my neck
Black and white photography always has its unique charm. Not much color distraction as there are only black, white and shades of gray. One of my favorite images from my recent trip to Bangalore, India. A relatively slow shutter speed of 1/25 sec was enough to blur the man walking in the foreground. The men
I love this photo for a simple reason that it has strong highlight and shadow. It also tells a story of two men engaged in a serious conversation. Look at the hand gesture of the man on the right. The man on the left was listening while seriously looking at his notebook. I saw these
I saw this painted wall when walking around the Shivaji Nagar market in Bangalore, India. It attracted my attention, but I need a foreground subject. So, I stood on the road side for few minutes waiting for someone to walk. I didn’t want to have too many people in the picture, so I waited for
