This week’s photo challenge is themed Extra, Extra and here’s my interpretation of it. This photo was taken while walking along the Esplanade in Singapore.

Weekly Photo Challenge: On-Top

Here’s my submission for this week’s photo challenge, themed on-top. Top view of a stork in flight, somewhere in Norkem Park, Johannesburg.  Plenty of storks here and I’ve grown accustomed to the sound they make, which is loud and almost like that of the ducks. Top view of a nearby park, also in Norkem. You…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

This week’s challenge is Abandoned. I’m featuring this huge ship, all grand in its own splendour and at the same time whenever I look at it, I can’t help but recall the scary, ghostly scenes of that epic Titanic movie.
