The Joy Of Cooking

8,008 km so far. One of the hardest things about our trip is not having access to a kitchen. Stephen and I both love to cook and we both love to be able to eat whatever we can dream up. Our Trangia camp kitchen made a good substitute while we were in Europe, and the […]

Triple Toil And Trouble

8,008 km so far. Sick update: After two days of lying in bed, Stephen has had to get up and go teach today. He’s still hurting, but I think he’ll survive! Phew. Keen followers of this blog will notice that my ‘daily’ photo practice has gone slightly off the rails. The difficulties began with my […]

Round And Round

8,008 km so far. Today I got lost in the wide world of wheels. Actually, the subject of wheels ended up being a little too specific, and I got bored pretty quickly. In fact, I may be a teensy bit bored with taking pictures every day. But more about that another time. For now, it’s […]

Expat Living In Shanghai

Sick update: Jane is pretty much better, except for a niggling scratchy cough that will probably linger around until March. But now Stephen is sick! Argh. He went to bed last night with a fever and has spent all day today asleep. Not good. No photo assignment today as my time was taken up with […]

Architecture In Shanghai

8,008 km so far. Gazing up at the buildings of a city often fills me with the same kind of awe as standing at the foot of a towering mountain or looking out across the vast ocean. It’s not just the beauty of the stone, glass, and steel structures before me, but the history that […]

Once Around The Block

One thing that has struck us deeply about Shanghai is that people from all walks of life live right on top of one another. As far as I know, neighbourhoods are not divided into rich and poor; there is no Beverly Hills of Shanghai, there is no Skid Row. The closet thing to a fancy […]

Urban Nature

No matter how urbanised we become, humans are creatures of nature. I’m fascinated by the way nature folds itself into every part of city living, whether it’s brought here by human hands, or happenstance. Just by gazing into their branches, city trees can fill me with calm and transport me somewhere cleaner, calmer, and earthier. […]

Laughing In The Purple

I’m slowly starting to come back to life and getting out to see a little more of the city while Stephen teaches. I have discovered that there is a paucity of purple on the streets of Shanghai, which made today’s photography subject something of a challenge. Purple is hard to shoot when you can’t find […]

Shot From All Angles

8,008 km so far. With just enough energy to feed myself and get out to take a few photos, there’s not much to tell, unless you want a detailed description of the ceiling in our hostel room, or my reactions to the first half of Season 1 of Six Feet Under, which I am watching […]
