Playing with Pixels

The last couple of weeks I have been experimenting with pixels, as a different form of art. I was pleasently surprised by the result, the crystallised photographs give not a detailed image but rather evoke a certain feeling. The combination of colours and the composition of those colour on their own are beautiful. Here are a few, I would love to get your opinion.

SHANGRI-LA (ZHONGDIAN, CHINA)

Two years ago, at the end of our travels through Asia, we stayed in Shangri-La City in close to Tibet. This was one of the most beautiful and scenic places I have ever been to. Besides the intriguing architecture of the carefully detailed temples and homes, the stunning view over the mountains and the daunting changes in weather, the people were extremely welcoming and friendly.

Here is just a couple of impressions of this unique place, if any of you have any questions on our stay or you want to see more, please let me know.

CACTUS 🌵

Cactus – Cacti, members of the plant family Cactaceae, in the order Caryophyllales.

The ancient Aztects of South America held cactus to be very important and can be found in many of their sculptures and drawings. The national coat of arms of Mexico shows an eagle, a snake, and cactus. Christopher Columbus brought the first cactus to Europe and every year, scientists discover new kinds of cactus.

I have come to love these little plants, and now they are getting more populair, I start to see them everywhere.

So here is an ode to the Cactus –
