It was nice coming back to Melaka, but perhaps too short a trip. Singapore changes so much so quickly. Much has changed in the last 3 years in Melaka too. But much still remains, and perhaps that is what I appreciate about coming here. The lady whom I buy tea from is exactly the same as I last saw her 3 years back; so is the foot massage therapist. The antique seller auntie still looks the same. I appreciate change as much as I appreciate the nostalgia. I am greedy that way. #travel #malaysia #malacca #melaka #nostalgia #photo #photography
There these ladies in pink umbrellas walking in the tourist districts of Warsaw and Krakow. They spinned their umbrellas amongst the crowd despite there being neither rain nor sun. I wondered why. Until one of them approached me to go to their strip club. #travel #warsaw #krakow #poland #street #streetphotography #photography #photo
Perhaps I have fallen for the gimmicks of the reality TV world, but I was moved by this singing nun. Nothing is impossible. Inspiring.
The Death Wall, between Block 10 and 11. This is where the Nazis executed prisoners in Auschwitz by firing squad. They built the wall so that it might not leave marks on the compound walls, evidence of their cruelty. They also built wooden shutters on the windows of Block 10 so its residents would not see the executions. The careful calculations and considerations the Nazis took to kill are what make me feel sick in the stomach. All across the Auschwitz camp were indications of this calculated cruelty that it made killing and torturing another human being a scientific exercise. I find it so hard to swallow that cold treatment towards murder. #travel #poland #auschwitz #bwphotography #photo #photography #documentaryphotography
