"Downtown in a box" - Melbourne, Dec. 2014
____________________
A Birdseye view of Melbourne's down town taken from highest skyscraper downwards. The ratio of heights between city center and surrounding neighborhood is definitely one funny and unique point about this city... Almost feeling like a constrained bonsai.

"Ice cream scoop" - Serra da Estrela, Dec. 2016
______________________
Shot of the tower on the top of Serra da Estrela, meticulously built to match the 2000m mark. Might not be that high, but surely is a great destination for a weekend escapade.

"Color splash" - Tibet, Aug. 2007
___________________________
A striking shot of the great lakes, with vivid greens, clear blue waters... and a curious monk striking the contrast in the composition... An amazing view to reward the efforts of a harsh overnight train ride from Xining, in the very middle of industrial China. So worth it, when you wake up to this piece of heaven lost in space and time.
A throwback to the early days of the photographer as such, with his father's mentoring him into the art.

"Great Wall, great distances" - The Great Wall, Feb. 2015
__________________
A couple stands on top of the great Wall, gauging the vast landscape. The wall sheer extent is impressive, exacerbated by the surrounding mountains.

What a curious fest of human kind... Stairs and stairs to nowhere. Endless and endless miles of a fictitious line, that was once the stance of power from the Chinese Empire towards the "barbarians" from the north. A clear message to keep the Mongolian right where they belonged.
