On the west coast of Ireland sit the famous Cliffs of Moher, otherwise known as the Cliffs of Insanity from the movie The Princess Bride. On this day, we were lucky enough to be there for a spectacular sunset, when the place was devoid of the usual throngs of tourists.
In the shadow of Sydney Harbour Bridge sits an old and somewhat run-down amusement park: Luna Park Sydney. Made famous by its giant clown-faced entrance, the park is a fantastic place to take colourful photos.
Not “sit on the couch and read a good book,” then?
After we got married in Thailand, we had our honeymoon in Borneo. Among mountain climbing, temple-gazing, and snorkelling, we saw many amazing kinds of wildlife. Seeing orangutans in the wild was very special, but I also love the proboscis monkeys, with their humanoid noses and sitting postures.
When I took this photo, I knew I’d soon be moving away from my hometown. Looking back on it now, I’m filled with a mix of emotions. Such a famous scene, captured millions of times and reproduced in countless ways, is also so familiar, the place I grew up in, and know so well. I am far away from it now, but it will always be a part of me.
