During the 2008 Olympics, Beijing's National Stadium was China's pride, the 90,000-seat physical embodiment of the country's economic ascendance. The stadium, “The Bird’s Nest” and the "Water Cube" lived up to its aspiration as global landmarks. Time has, however, not been so kind. Today, The Bird’s Nest is a mostly empty "museum piece" The stadium, which cost $480 million dollars to build and takes about $11 million each year to maintain, has no regular tenant and is almost empty. The nearby Olympic aquatics center “The Water Cube” has been slightly more fortunate: it's been turned into a water park. Wondering what is going to happen with the investments made in Brazil… Time will tell… Beijing, China
Beautiful, defiant and intense, Argentina seduces with its street-side tango, incredible foods, gaucho culture and welcoming people. Explore the mighty Iguazu Falls, take in the colors of Buenos Aires. Then head into nature to explore Peninsula Valdes, Torres del Paine National Park and the humbling Perito Moreno Glacier. Reaching the end of the world at Ushuaia is just the tip of the iceberg of an incredible country. Argentina is one formidable cocktail of wanderlust!
"Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with how you see them."
I just like to take pictures, I just push the button. I never worked in the darkroom, I never studied photography or journalism; I’m just a passionate photographer.
"Success is the ability to go from failure to failure, without a loss of enthusiasm”
Sir Winston Churchill
