1rst Lightpainting in North Korea

admin

This is probably to this date the only succesful attempt to do some basic Lightpainting in North Korea as well as shooting pictures at night. Haven’t seen anything of that kind yet and I made these shootings in summer 2018. In 2020 I dug out a few additions I forgot […]

Exclusion Zone of Tchernobyl

admin

This was a long planned trip into the scary world of a nuclear disaster. Tchernobyl is a bad remembrance for most of us and Ukraine paid a high price for hosting the world’s worst nuclear accident site until Fukushima happened. Going there made me dive again into documentaries about what […]

India…Ki Monastery

Ki Monastery is located in the Spiti valley, far away from everything to allow monks to focus on prayer. Spiti is an arid, mineral and cold area where the only things that grow are stupas. The tibetan influence is strong here and most of the population is buddhist. Winter is […]

Lightpainting

Another evening, another session but a good one. With the help of a LP freak who came well equipped, we managed to set up a nice session that allowed the creation of a great set of pics that would be backgrounded by LED bar effects. This is particularly effective with […]

Bagan

Bagan is an amazing site in Myanmar. While rapidly increasing tourism is eating away the still atmosphere of holiness that surrounds this unique site, sunset still calms everything down and the views are fantastic.

Catacombs under Paris

Notre Dame de Paris – Blue Hour

admin

Notre Dame de Paris is open during night hours only 2 months in the year : July & August. It’s definitely the occasion to climb on the towers and get a breathtaking view from the absolute center of Paris. Doing this at sunset leads on top to the best light […]

West Bank

admin

Israel keeps building 8m high walls around the West Bank, cutting off palestinians from their fields, disrupting their lives and putting a lot of disgrace on the country’s face. This situation puts an unbearable strain on hundreds of thousands of people who live a very difficult live everyday. No wonder […]

Bhaktapur Durbar Square

admin

Bhaktapur or a place that stayed stuck in the middle age, so much of the city’s architecture has been preserved. This place is really something and is used very often as a movie set with among them ‘Little Bhudda’ that was shot there. Durbar Square has a very particular atmosphere […]

Swayambunath

Swayambunath also known as the monkey temple is located a bit on the edge of Kathmandu and forms together with Bodnath the largest stupa to see in Nepal. The location alone is very special, with the stupa sitting on the top of a steep hill and a huge & steep […]
