A man is sitting on a bench, looking at other people passing by on the Hashemite Square
next to the antique Roman theatre. The square is a very popular meeting place among the people living downtown, especially when the nigh falls. All the lights turn on, small groups of friends gather here and there, families have a picnic and everyone can finally enjoy the cool air that the evening brings.
Guys and (not)-Russian dolls at the Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yasawi in Turkestan. Kazakhstan’s people are very proud of their unique national identity in a post-Soviet world. Modern history has overshadowed the lengthy periods of time that civilisations have independently thrived in this region, unfortunately leading to a situation where many people around the world know little about Kazakh culture. At a banquet thrown for us by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, this sore spot was emphatically made clear. “People in the West often think that we are just like Russia. We are not Russian, although we speak the language.” Both nations have their own distinct histories, cultures, traditions, rites and customs. Kazakhstan’s solid commitment to spreading education in the Kazakh language amongst the younger generation born after Soviet rule is just one way in which they’re trying to reconnect their country to their community.
Notre-Dame de Paris is a medieval Catholic cathedral in Paris, France and is among the largest and best-known church buildings in the world. It has quite the history with construction beginning in 1163 during the reign of Louis VII. The views of the church are incredible at night!
Ancient graves at Yeddi Gumbaz in Shamakhi #Azerbaijan 🇦🇿 #travel#photography
No topo da colina da cidade de Shamakhi no Azerbaijão há vários mausoléus com centenas de anos. Durante o Inverno tudo fica coberto de neve, criando um paralelo entre o mórbido e o belo. Dentro destes mausoléus há ainda pedras tumulares pintadas, algo que nunca tinha visto. Mais uma vez repito: O Azerbaijão é uma simpática surpresa. Estou a adorar explorar este país 🇦🇿😍
Dreaming of tropical climates as the snow melts in Atlanta. I took this photo of the Chiang Mai Sunday night walking market during my first trip to Thailand in 2010 and later returned in 2014. You can get just about everything here, from tasty soups to cheap electronics to locally made crafts. It’s no wonder the city to the north is so popular with visitors!
#throwingitback to when motorcycle taxis were our main mode of transportation! We had so much fun riding all over Kigali. Note that my hemlet is barely touching my head👌One time my helmet fell off completely 😂😂😂 #safetyfirst
All of my favorite things: Camera, tacos, succulents and sunnies. 📷🌮🌵🕶 • I’m in Scottsdale, AZ for a hot sec and capturing my favorite places on video. I’ve been coming here at least once a year since I was a wee thing so I have all my “hot spots” picked out BUT if you have any recommendations for Scottsdale/Phoenix let me know and I’ll try to squeeze it in!
Is it a drone shot? Or not?
Well, it's not, I have captured it hanging at the edge of a cliff, have spent almost whole day in this area to look for some amazing shots and this is one of them.
It is the old school way of doing things when there were no drones in this world. Photographers used to work hard to find such shots back then, finding the right angles, hanging over cliffs waiting for right time for perfect shadows. This picture was an effort to make all that happen without a drone. Not that I don't love drones, even I wish to own one. But until then, I would love to go old school whenever there's an opportunity.
This is one of the most iconic beaches of Indonesia and indeed one of the least accessible one. But the adventurous souls who manage to go down till the bottom are sure to be blessed by these crazy waves hitting the beach making it all the more beautiful.

“Sitting with our hosts under a dim light, thumbing through images of fellow travelers, and we are consumed into a void that is becoming harder and harder to achieve. For a few hours that evening we are timeless. We are visitors along a fifteen year continuum that sits in the crease of a faded Polaroid.”
