After snivelling around the house for the last couple of weeks with man-flu I thought it was about time I posted something, and as I'm heading off to the Venice Carnival again next month I thought this was a good choice.

1 January, 2015 // shenzhen #4comments & reactions

When I first started photoblogging, way back in 2004, I posted pretty much every image that I was reasonably pleased with. In recent years I've been more selective, to the point where I have at least 150 images sitting on my hard drive that I can't decide whether to post. They aren't any worse than my previous images, so it's not a quality issue, I just can't decide whether they're worth posting. I don't think they're any worse than any of my previous images, so it's not a quality issue: more a case of not being sure what they say. Which, in turn, reflects a lack of direction in my photography that I think I probably need to address. In the meanwhile, I'll post some of the backlog, starting with the shot of this guy taken recently in Shenzen, China.

I'm not sure why, but this feels like a good image for the time of year, so here's wishing you all a great Christmas and a Happy New Year :)

Here's another (pseudo) 'little planet' from Dubai, shot from the rooftop bar of the Four Points by Sheraton on Sheik Zayed Road.

A follow up to my previous image. Shot from a different angle, with Si Longworth wandering around in the background.

I still have a couple of (pseudo) 'little planets' to post but I thought I'd put this one up first. As you'll see if you take a look at the original I didn't quite nail it in one shot, but I'm happy with the final result.

If you'll pardon the pun, here's a slightly different spin on the 'little planet' idea: one constructed from a mirrored copy of an image shot in the Business Bay area of Dubai.
