Vienna’s Christmas Markets

Vienna’s Christmas Markets

Christmas markets in Vienna are a centuries-old tradition dating back to 1298. From mid-November to 25 December, many of Vienna’s most beautiful and famous squares are transformed into traditional Christmas markets. They lend a festive atmosphere to warm the...
Framed in Orange

Framed in Orange

Autumn is my absolute favourite season, photography-wise. Much like the season of Spring, there is an explosion of colour everywhere. Nature sheds its cape of green for the more subtle hues of yellow and orange or blazing red. The days are shorter and it is not yet...
Doors, Doors, Doors

Doors, Doors, Doors

They come in all sizes, colours, styles and materials yet serve the same purpose – as an entrance to an establishment, building, business, house or residence. I’m talking about doors. It has always fascinated me how much time and artistic efforts were...
Pilgrimage to Eggenburg

Pilgrimage to Eggenburg

For visitors to Hamburg and even for most Hamburgers, city life revolves around the harbour, most commonly known as the Hamburg Hafen. And probably the best-known building in the Hafen is the Elbphilharmonie, fondly called “Elbie” by the locals. Accompany...
The Streets of Dublin

The Streets of Dublin

We arrived Dublin on a typical Irish spring day – grey, wet, cold and windy. As we got off the blue Air Coach bus and dragged our suitcase through O’Çonelly Street, one could already feel an energy in the air that cannot be dampened by either chill or...
Journeying Through a Holy Land

Journeying Through a Holy Land

A photo travelogue of our pilgrimage trip through Jordan and Israel visiting the holy sites of Christianity. A pilgrimage to the Holy Land is a trip that most Catholics dream of taking at least once in their lifetime. Journeying through a Holy Land by Rodolfo Quevenco...
Ireland: The Green Isle

Ireland: The Green Isle

It’s when one leaves the city and veer off the major roads towards the countryside that the natural beauty of Ireland truly shines. We were, of course, blessed with sun the whole day through — a rarity in Ireland we soon learned, no matter what season you...
