iceland photo journal.

Last year was no doubt one of the worst years I’ve experienced so far, but with it also came one of the best years I could have asked for. Being thrown into a whirlwind of uncertainties and self-realisations, I made the decision and a promise to myself to travel more and document more.

So, came a whirlwind five-week trip across four American cities (more photos from that later) and then there was Iceland.

The landscape of Iceland was like stepping into another planet. Words cannot describe the beauty of this place; below I hope that my photos captured some of the beauty that I was lucky enough to witness with my own eyes.

Caught a beautiful glow through the windows of the Saint Sophia Cathedral on our brief visit to this landmark. The interior was deteriorating with paint stripping and mould eating away at the wall paper. Water stains could be seen on the roof from where the water had leaked in during storms, yet this Saint Sophia Cathedral somehow has a beautiful nostalgic charm leaving one to wonder what it could have been like in it’s heyday.

Photos by Mandy. Not many words needed for this amazing concrete structure called 1933 (上海1933老场坊) a building I now understand why, is so #instafamous of a scenic photography destination here in Shanghai. I could spend hours just staring at the various perspectives created by each individual or a combination of the 26 air walks.  These walkways; a series of complex pathways look almost as if a physical manifestation of paintings from the infamous M.C Escher himself.

Hiding from the rain on a Sunday afternoon after a LONG lunch with some amazing girls here in Shanghai, resulted in an impromptu shoot at the iconic SOHO designed by none other than Zaha Hadid.

This stairway has become a tourist attraction here in Shanghai with her ever present and distinctive neofuturistic architectural style. Finding places with dramatic back drops have become somewhat easy in Shanghai. From modern, futuristic to charming and whimsical, Shanghai seems to be a playground for photographers and instagramers alike.

I’m finally really starting to enjoy this city.
