I love taking photographs of hummingbirds because it’s fun and challenging as they seem to be moving all the time. These were the images of the adorable hummingbirds I captured at a local zinnia flower bed two years ago.

Street Photography in Kenya – 2013
Recently I posted my series of “street photography” for seven countries I visited in the last decade, namely, China, Vietnam, Morocco, Peru, Myanmar, Turkey and Namibia. Somehow I forgot about Kenya where we took a safari trip in 2013, primarily we only visited the city […]
Reflection of Black-eyed Susan
Black-eyed Susan flower as seen from a dew drop: I went to Brookside Gardens yesterday with my Olympus mirrorless camera (E-M1 Mark II) with 70-300 mm lens (equivalent to 140-600 mm) for the hummingbird shot but was disappointed to only see one. Instead I just […]
I took this photo using my Olympus Mirrorless camera with 12-200 mm (equivalent of 24-400mm) lens. Camera setting were ISO 400, f/6.3, 1/160 sec. and zoom at 200mm. Sunlight made the magic so the wings looked like glittering jewels.
Street Photography in Namibia – 2017
We took a 10-day tour of Namibia in Southern Africa in May 2017. It is a land of beauty and contrast – the incredible red-color sand dunes in the desert of Namib-Naukluft National Park, the Atlantic coastal desert near Swakopmund and the wildlife in Etosha […]
Street Photography in Turkey – 2016
We took a 13-day tour of Turkey in 2016. We enjoyed the tours of Istanbul, Ephesus, Pamukkale, Antalya, Cappadocia, Ankara, etc. To me the highlight of the trip was the hot air balloon ride at Cappadocia at sunrise!
Street Photography in Myanmar (Burma) – 2014
This is my fifth in the series of “street photography”. We took a week long trip to Myanmar from Taiwan. The cities we visited were Yangon, Mandalay and Bagan. To me the visit of Bagan, the World Heritage Site where thousands of pagodas and temples […]
Street Photography in Peru – 2012
This is the 4th one of my series of “Street Photography”. We traveled to Peru during Christmas season in 2012 visiting Lima, Cusco and Machu Picchu. Highlight of the trip was, of course the train ride from Cusco to Machu Picchu and the tour of […]
Street Photography in Morocco – 2010
We had a six day visit of Morocco including cities of Rabat, Marrakech, Fes, Casablanca and Tangier. Medina of Fes was the most unique tour- we fully understood why our tour guide told us to follow each other closely so we could not get lost […]
Street Photography in Vietnam – 2012
We toured Northern Vietnam in December 2012. I think the Vietnamese women in their traditional dress are very attractively beautiful! I was so glad to come across this group of girls in the park.
Street Photography in China – 2007
We visited China in 2007 for the first time and probably last time as well. We spent 10 days in Beijing and another 10 days in Yunnan in southwestern China. We enjoyed the cities of Kunming, Dali and Li-Jiang very much. I took many pictures […]
