Yesterday I received three lovely envelopes full of surprises from Taipei, Portugal, and Virginia:
A vintage postcard “save the date” from Barry and Diana, whose wedding I’ll be photographing next year. A letter in Portuguese, feather collection, and a beautiful photograph from Catarina.
Art in Kunming
This is the Loft (Chuangku) art community nestled in an abandoned industrial complex in Kunming. I hear there used to be a lively art community with cafes and galleries, but most artists have moved elsewhere due to rising rent prices. So we mostly found private artists’ studios and a vacant rooftop space.
These are photos from the 943 Studio:
I love my bicycle!
And finally, a photo of me and my handy bicycle. I ride it just about every day, rain or sunshine. Are any of you bicycle-lovers, as well?
An exciting news: I have a guest-editor position at the MIT University’s CoLab Radio, where I am doing weekly blog posts about Kunming’s bike lanes posted every Wednesday.
If you’re interested in bicycles, street photography, or urban development, come check it out. I’d love your feedback!
