Turbocharged

Travel lockdown, time to dig up old travel photos... I curated like 200 photos... going to post like 3-4 a day. hopefully when I reach the end, the lockdown is over...

Starting from many many years ago, without the kids....

Some of these are posted previously last year but many are probably unposted.

Added a drop shadow frame.

@kobayashiGT, perhaps can click Reply instead of Quote, so we don't get many duplicate photos and use up bandwidth, and readers don't need to keep scrolling down? 😉

I love those rustic Beijing streets. Quite hard to find them any now in downtown Beijing.

I love remembering how things have changed over the years, both the places I have been and the people I go with. I included a pic of myself 12 years ago... I almost have zero pics of myself so I am making a point to add in a few, taken by my wife (not an avid photographer)

COVID-19 or not, in this age of connectivity where expectation for just about everything work-related is immediate and now-now-now for many professions, lucky are those who can truly take a vacation, totally away from work. Anyway, I enjoy the photos, very nicely taken.

I have memories of doing conference calls or design reviews in hotel toilet. A vacation can be fun even if you spend a bit of time at work. Due to the time difference, it is usually when you are at the hotel anyway. it is only a bit of time here and there for the urgent stuff

These three pics are nothing nice photographically but I still kept them mainly for memories personal to me. The first two are my in-laws... After getting married, I visit my in laws far more than my parents partly because we live 5 mins walk away. My elder kid 12 years ago. 

The last pic is kept mainly because it is our FIRST VACATION together with kids.... It was to Japan after the perth trip 6 months earlier with inlaws. First of many many over the years. We brought a stroller as she was getting heavier... which is dumped it at our first hotel after the first day and picked it up on the last day. My kids cannot sit stroller which we learnt.

Our next few trips were all to Asia because we are worried about jet lag for the baby. And it happens mostly to Japan because it is easier to move around and we are pretty familiar with Japan.

Next few pics are taken on a trip to New Zealand in 2010 when Ann was 2 years old. They grow up the fastest in the first few years. Each trip she is so different.

Your daughter damn cute! 😍

thanks 🙂 my boy is cute too, at least to me. I think every parents think their kid is super cute.

But for photography, there is a "golden period" I think. Around 2-6 years old, where they are super photogenic as they have lots of expression and totally not camera shy

The next few shots are still in New Zealand, same trip. I will ALWAYS remember my girl was terrified of the heli ride. When we reach the mountain, we realised she actually fell asleep or fainted.... We were worried a while but she woke up and all good.

The last shot "Classic" was a recreation of one of our wedding photo taken much earlier with the mountains floating about the lake on one side and forest in the other.
