The last time I visited Taiwan we travelled down to the south of the island to a place called Kaohsiung. One of the most interesting spots there was the Lotus Pond, which had all kinds of Pagodas and statues on it. It was the perfect chance for some drone shots!

Containing my Excitement 2 | 1 // Whoosh! That is the sound of 2018 rapidly hurtling towards its end. In terms of photography and my journey on Instagram, 2018 has been all about exploring the possibilities of aerial photography and seeking to define my aesthetic. Thanks for everyone who provided constructive feedback and encouragement along the way as I experimented with all sorts of different styles, angles and subjects. I don't think the experimentation is over yet, but what I can say is that I have really taken to the drone as an enabler - to get a camera lens to an otherwise unreachable place, and to find that angle impossible to see from the eye level - and I want to keep discovering these new places in Hong Kong and beyond. I just love this freedom that drone photography brings and the giddy thrill of finding a new angle. I will keep my focus on architecture but the built environment but occasionally you will see a waterfall, a tropical island and trees on my feed too!
I'm also really glad that this is the year where I have had a chance to meet a lot more photographers in person through Instagram. As pleasant as it is to see each other's work, it is even more remarkable to meet photographers in the flesh to learn more about them in person and exchange new techniques and ideas. I'm quite introverted by nature so I found that meeting new photographers from around the world is an invaluable opportunity to hear new perspectives from people far and wide, and that's something I'm thankful for. As the old saying goes, #communityfirst!
I'm going to be spending the most of the remainder of the year with my family and wifey. We've got a family trip coming up to mark my parents' retirement (Bangkok and Krabi, here we come!) and hopefully we can squeeze in one more short trip just before New Year’s Eve. Whilst I won't be enforcing a personal digital detox, I think this would be a good chance to remind myself that whilst a lot of worthwhile time is spent on Instagram, there is a lot more to life beyond it and I should really treasure these moments with family and ensure that we're creating great memories.

Taken in chapel row, beautiful woodland and location for drone flying. The world from above is a great way to get the shots you simply can't do with a phone or hand mounted camera... enjoy your day peeps and thank you for all the messages... ❤
