    Very nice.
    What kind of camera gear?

    • Reply eemusings January 25, 2014 at 11:53

      Canon 1000D with standard lens – nothing too fancy.

        might not be too fancy, but you shoot like a pro.

          Dawww. I definitely take a lot more duds than I do winners – blind luck plays a big part, haha.

    Amazing shots!! The ballerina was there for a show, or just happened to be there? I love that purple bike – was someone riding it or was it there for display?

    • Reply eemusings January 25, 2014 at 11:54

      Just there, lucky for us! I don’t know about the bike, that was a happy discovery too .. I assumed it was parked there but it’s quite possible it was on display – the purple bouquets on the doorway are the same colour.

    Siem Reap is my favourite shot (the one of the lanterns)… and then the Icelandic ponies.
