Sri Dalada Maligawa is a major Buddhist  temple in Kandy located at the royal palace complex of the former Kingdom of Kandy. The tooth relic of Buddha has played an important role in political history because it is believed that whoever holds the relic holds the governance of the country.

Jerusalem - Israel - June 2017

An evening in the streets of Jerusalem (with the Fujifilm X Pro2)

Jerusalem - Israel - June 2017

In June this year I was close to a traditional area in Jerusalem, worth a visit to see another side of the humanity unknown to me.

I expected that it would be very difficult to make or take any reasonable street photography here. Surprisingly enough it was easier as expected, the Fujifilm X Pro2 was a big help. After several years with the X Pro1 I recently switched to the X Pro2. The transition was smooth, with the X pro2 I managed to seamlessly blend in the street-life of Jerusalem. On the X Pro2 I had the XF 35 f2.0 which quickly became my most loved piece of glass.

Today it is time to share 10 images on my blog, I think it is more than worth a look. Some shots maybe technically not perfect, it however all is about the impression I like to share.

Enjoy!

The other side of the Maldives

Posted in Gallery, Maldives
Vaadhoo - Maldives - February 2017

For some people the Maldives mean relaxing and after some days it might become somewhat boring. The challenge is to turn this boredom into a state of seeing and discover if there is more than just drinks, water and sunshine. Believe it or not, but there is more to see and discover. The Maldives are not just resorts, there are locals living as well on the Islands. There are streets, houses, graffiti, elections and people.

In this gallery I show the other side of the Maldives. This side is not as polished as the resorts for tourists, it is the other reality of the paradise.

Havanian Soapbox Race

The Cubans are masters of repairing and recycling. These boys made three-wheeled soap boxes. To get wheels probably is a mission impossible but ball bearings suit the job perfectly. Bellow a short reportage of a race. Great game!

Havana Baseball Mania

Posted in Cuba, Gallery, Reportage

“Parque Central” in Havana, at any hour of the day it seems there is a contra-revolution. It is something different men passionately debate baseball at all hours of the day. They are shouting and having nose-to-nose confrontations. Several debates are going on in parallel, a flow of expression not possible everywhere else in Cuba.

Not free from doubts, I decided to blend with the crowd and made a series of portraits. Normally I do not take candid portraits, but here there was that acceptance of the proud Cuban men. I made about 60 portraits, in the gallery bellow I show 18 images worth sharing.
