A Total TaiTai Tale

Tale of a Total TaiTai who was in Beijing & Beyond and is now in Singapore & Surroundings!

You learn very early on to always ask which exit to take out of the MRT station, either if you need to meet someone or if you need to get somewhere.

Some MRT stations have so many exits that can be in opposite directions and hundreds of meters away.

You only make the mistake once… Or I’ve been told 😂

We thought of starting a band, the f/stops with Etienne, Celine, Aron, Jo & Melissa. (& Pics Of Asia) and let’s not forget our amazing local tour guide Kaushik (not pictured as he was taking the picture)

And if you are ever in Vietnam and like a photography tour, I highly recommend Etienne and his tour in HoiAn

And this will conclude Bangladesh Phototour 2019

Looking at the number of photos I’ve posted, you might not believe me when I tell you I had to restrict myself. There are so many more photos I could have shared. Too many to keep just on a hard drive, a photo album should be made.

To revisit the trip in a chronological order: CelineInBangladesh (& all my others trips here)

November 2019 – Dhaka, Dinajpur & Sylhet Bangladesh

All of our trips feel special, all of my photography trips feel like they cannot be topped off. While I love the connection I made on my previous trip to Yogyakarta, this trip was very special with a small group and the country & people were a dream to photograph. From the get go we crossed path with the most welcoming people. They were willing to get photographed, invited us into the back back alley to show us their humble home. They were curious about us. Wondering what was so interesting for us to photograph but seem so trivial to them. I so wished we had been able to communicate more, but hand gestures and a big smile is THE universal language after all.

I’m not much of a street photographer (it stems from being on the other side of the camera during our time in China) but I do like it, this push me out of my comfort zone. That’s the beauty of traveling with other photographers. I learn from each other, you push each other, . But you also go with my guts feeling and photograph the way you want and feel comfortable. Following your own path, because at the end there’s only one person you need to please and it’s yourself.
