Joburg and the Sky of Diamonds

We celebrated Chinese New Year at a street party in Johannesburg. Hoards of people showed up for the fireworks, including the crew I went with. Only difference is, they brought their cameras, and I was too nervous to bring mine. I hadn’t been to town in so long, that I was feeling somewhat paranoid. In hindsight, it was silly of me. Nevertheless, I decided to capture the display on my phone. Now, these pics aren’t exactly as spectacular as my friends’ images (they brought their fancy cameras), but I reckon some of them came out quite nicely.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Let there be Light


The above picture was taken in Koh Chang. I wanted to capture this guy contemplating during sunset, while the lights from the resorts came on in the background.



This image was taken on the rooftop of a hotel in Taroko Gorge, Taiwan.

It was New Year’s Eve, and my very first countdown in Chinese began. As soon as we got to one,  I caught this downpour of light.
