An iPhone in Macau

A few months back my wife and I visited Macau, it's a rather interesting place being an old Portuguese port.  Today a great proportion of the original Portuguese architecture remains, but mixed into the environment are modern casinos and hotels, some of them with very unusual architectural features.

On this trip I decided to use my iPhone as the sole capture device, we were walking everywhere and covering a lot of ground each day and in any case sometimes I just like to limit myself gear wise and concentrate on the composition.

I was pretty happy with the results which were all processed in Snapseed on the iPhone and tuned up with some of the apps built in film simulation options.  The shots ranged from straight people style street to architecture and abstract.

I decide to post a few of the architecture shots here today.

Our long term plan is to run some photo tours to Macau and Hong Kong and we have a friend there who is a fabulous tour guide so it will be a shared effort, he will provide the background info and shepherd the group around and I will keep the group shooting efficiently and creatively.

I will keep you posted on that, we are looking at late 2017 to kick that trip off.

Lisboa Casino...classic!

They have done amazing things with glass and mirrors inside the Lisboa

One of the many older government buildings with a backdrop of rather odd apartment buildings.

Abandoned green home,  a real fixer upper.

There are many temples and places of worship scattered around Macau.
