Round and Round in City Squares

Round and Round in City Squares

Round and Round in City Squares You can’t help it. All new cities you visit, you’ll end up going round and round in their city squares.  A city square defines a city. During my travels, a few that have impressed me are Tiananmen Square in Beijing, Main Square in Krakow, Red Square in Moscow and Covent Garden in London. I invited a few serious travellers to share their favourite city squares. Here’s their take!  Piazza San Pietro, Rome, Italy Simone Lye|The Aussie…

Travel Photography – Cityscape – Warsaw

Travel Photography – Cityscape – Warsaw

Equipment:      EOS 5D Mark III  TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II EXIF:               24mm  f/5.6  5.0sec  ISO 100 Travel Photography – Cityscape – Warsaw I conceived this shot of Palace of Culture & Science as my Warsaw Cityscape shot even before I figured out the shooting vantage and the challenges I will face. The shot had to have the Roundabout in the foreground as it would act as a forecourt and would provide, as an element, a perfect balance. The timing had…

Travel Photography Tip – Culture

Travel Photography Tip – Culture

Equipment:      EOS 5D Mark III  EF17-40mm f/4.0L USM EXIF:               17mm  f/6.3  1/1000  ISO 200 A travel photographer always dreams of capturing the place, the people, the history and the culture of a destination – ideally, all in one shot.

This prompts me to call this resilient city WarSee. As travel photographers, it becomes our responsibility to fine-tune our eye and develop what we call in…
