There are so many creative and gifted artists in Ubud. I spent an afternoon with Dewa and we chatted away and listened to some great music (one of those being a reggae version of the Gayatri Mantra!).
He has an exhibition on in 'Bali Bohemia' on the 2nd September.
He also does painting classes at his studio and gallery on Jl Jembawan 1. Cool, calm and collected dude.
Ōzu town is considered the little Kyoto of Iya and its castle (sXIV) was built on the top of a hill between rivers Hiji and Yaochi. It was controlled by numerous lords but since 1617 the castle remained under Katō clan. This year is the 400 anniversary of that date when we visited it. Note: we found a Leiji Matsumoto's artwork inside! 😊
El pueblo de Ōzu está considerado la pequeña Kyoto de Iya y su castillo fue construido en el sXIV sobre una montaña entre los ríos Hiji y Yaochi. Estuvo controlado durante numerosos señores feudales hasta que en 1617 pasó al clan Katō y se amplió la estructura justo como se conoce hoy. Justo este año celebraban los 400 años. Curiosidad: nos encontramos con una obra de Leiji Matsumoto colgada en su interior 😊
Wait til the end... ⚡️ -
My wife and I used to come here on our last day of vacation before getting on the plane. We're so grateful we now live 5 minutes away and come whenever.
Two years ago today we arrived in Mykonos which marked the beginning of an absolutely epic holiday. This picture was taken on one what turned out to be one of the funniest days of my life.
Driving around Mykonos on the back of the quad bike, behind Adam, holding on for dear life as our poor little 4 wheeler struggled up the winding steep hills.
Over the the next month I am going to be reminiscing and posting a lot of the pics we never got around to posting 2 years ago. Such an amazing trip, dying to go back 🤗
Famous throughout the Roman Catholic world, the imposing Basilica of Bom Jesus contains the tomb and mortal remains of St Francis Xavier, the so-called Apostle of the Indies. St Francis Xavier’s missionary voyages throughout the East became legendary. His ‘incorrupt’ body is in the mausoleum to the right, in a glass-sided coffin amid a shower of gilt stars. Freelance guides at the entrance will show you around for ₹100. "Basilica of BOM Jesus", a World Heritage site, being named by UNESCO was started building in 1594 and was completed in 1605, to create an elaborate late-Renaissance structure, fronted by a facade combining elements of Doric, Ionic and Corinthian design. Prominent in the design of the facade is the intricately carved central rectangular pediment, embellished with the Jesuit emblem ‘IHS,’ an abbreviation of the Latin ‘Iesus Hominum Salvator’ (Jesus, Saviour of Men). This is the only church in Old Goa not plastered on the outside, the lime plaster having been stripped off by a zealous Portuguese conservationist in 1950. Apparently his notion was that exposed to the elements, the laterite stone of which the basilica is built would become more durable and thus the building would be strengthened. Despite proof to the contrary, no one has got around to putting the plaster back yet; hence, some of the intricate carving is eroding with the dousing of each successive monsoon.
In our last #landscapephotography series post, we talked about how best to use the sky in relation to the horizon. Was the sky the focal point, or would the capture be better with the focus on the foreground? Today, we're delving deeper into a photo's relationship with the horizon.•
•To give an onlooker the feeling of being placed in your shoes, make sure your horizon line is straight. You can always fix this in editing, but it does make it so much easier to get it straight ahead of time. •
•Consider the Rule of Thirds. Instead of your horizon line always being in the middle of the photo, try 2/3rds of the way down or 2/3rds of the way up on your frame. Most cameras will have a grid feature where you can see lines across your frame to help you use this rule. •
