Six Months of Instagram: Part 2

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how much I love Instagram. I had stopped using my phone for photos prior to Instagram; I just didn’t see the point when I usually had a better camera with me to record the moment. Now I have thousands of photos stored on my little memory card, many…

Six Months of Instagram, Part 1

Being an Android user, I was a bit late to the whole Instagram party. My friends had been constantly taunting me with their filtered, retro-style shots for at least a year by the time the app was finally released on Android in April of this year. I was one of the over one million users…

Photo Essay: The Sanctuary of Bom Jesús do Monte

Photo Essay: Facepainting at the Body Art Carnivale

The second day of the Australian Body Art Carnivale had vastly differing categories sharing the painting tent: face painting and special effects. The face painters were allowed to paint intricate artworks down to the shoulders of their models, while the special effects artists were allowed to do pretty much anything they wanted, even creating a…

Photo Essay: The Australian Body Art Carnivale

Please note that this post does contain photos of topless girls, so it may not be ideal to browse through during work time. I’d like to think they’re tasteful photos though. Last weekend, artists from around Australia descended on Eumundi to take part in the annual Australian Body Art Carnivale. I’ve never seen an event…

Stockholm’s Gamla Stan: A Photo Essay

As soon as I found out that I was going to northern Sweden on a work trip, I started planning a side trip to Stockholm to see my friend Petrine. I was lucky that I got to see her at all, since she had only just returned from a family Christmas in Texas; as it…
