For fun, I pushed my macro to 1:1 for a really closeup look at a buttercup. At this distance, the flower takes on a completely new dimension: like something out of a sci-fi movie. Ethereal. Beautiful. Alien-like! . . #flowers #petal #buttercups #buttercupflowers #nature #beautiful #plants #garden #flowerslovers #botanical #floral #flowermagic #bloom #blooms #floweroftheday #gardenlovers #flowersofinstagram #springishere #lensculture #macro #closeup #flowermacro #olympuscamera #omd #getolympus #olympusomd #olympusem5 #microfourthirds #CarlLumPhotogaphy #FindBeautyAnywhere
To celebrate two days of sun (and just before our howling wind storm), here's another underrated beauty from my wife's garden: the ubiquitous buttercup. They are everywhere and they are easy to overlook. But move in close and they are really quite pretty! . . #flowers #petal #buttercups #buttercupflowers #nature #beautiful #plants #garden #flowerslovers #botanical #floral #flowermagic #bloom #blooms #floweroftheday #gardenlovers #flowersofinstagram #springishere #lensculture #macro #closeup #flowermacro #olympuscamera #omd #getolympus #olympusomd #olympusem5 #microfourthirds #CarlLumPhotogaphy #FindBeautyAnywhere
My wife trudges along a deserted Long Beach. This shot always makes me think of the "Last Person in the World" scenario in a post-apocalyptic world! In reality, this is probably the most famous beach in beautiful British Columbia. . . #travel #igtravel #tourism #vacation #trip #holiday #visiting #travelgram #mytravelgram #tourism #tourist #beach #lonely #alone #solitaryperson #sunburst #uclulet #tofino #beautifulbc #explorebc #longbeach #longbeachbc #singleperson #olympus #getolympus #microfourthirds #olympusep1 #CarlLumPhotography #FindBeautyAnywhere #travelphoto #roamingnanny
No one will dispute the Venice is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. How cool is it to take a water taxi to your hotel door? (That's another hotel to try in my bucket list.) . . #igtravel #worldtravel #travelawesome #instatravel #bewander #letsgosomewhere #exploretocreate #Venice #Italy #Europe #whyinitaly #hotel #boutiquehotel #quaint #canals #iloveitaly #ilovevenice #romantic #olympus #getolympus #microfourthirds #olympusep1 #CarlLumPhotography #FindBeautyAnywhere #travelphoto #roamingnanny #amazeshots

The ancient city Ephesus in Turkey was another highlight in our trip. We got a chance to visit another 1000+ year old building! The remnants of the Library of Celsus has stood since the 10th century and we were allowed to freely walk in and around this ancient structure (no liability fears like North America!). Our tour group also started out early, so I was able to catch some nice light in the morning sun. #travel #travelling #igtravel #tourism #vacation #trip #holiday #visiting #instatravel #travelgram #mytravelgram #tourism #tourist #Ephesus #LibraryofCelsus #Turkey #ancient #libary #Izmir #Greek #olympus #getolympus #microfourthirds #CarlLumPhotography #FindBeautyAnywhere #travelphoto #roamingnanny #amazeshots
Happy Mother's Day! This is how Bleeding Hearts should look like in my wife's garden. But with the cold, wet spring we've been having here in Vancouver, this year's crop looks much more scrawny. Have a great day anyway. . . #flower #flowers #petal #bleedinghearts #bleedingheartflower #nature #beautiful #plants #garden #flowerslovers #botanical #floral #flowermagic #bloom #blooms #floweroftheday #gardenlovers #flowersofinstagram #springishere #lensculture #fisheye #red #olympuscamera #omd #getolympus #olympusomd #olympusem5 #microfourthirds #carllum_photography #FindBeautyAnywhere
After all the glamour of China's technical and architectural prowess, this street scene shows how the real people live. I tried to give it a timeless look, as if this scene could have been from the 80's...or 50's... It kind of reminds me of our own Chinatown in Vancouver, only older and more rundown! . . #instatravel #travelgram #mytravelgram #igtravel #tourism #tourist #travel #travelling #vacation #trip #holiday #visiting #travelphoto #streetscene #streetphotography #simplelife #basiclife #Guangdong #China #Asia #lensculture #lensculturestreets #everybodystreet #carllum_photography #FindBeautyAnywhere #olympus #getolympus #olympusem5 #microfourthirds #roamingnanny
"Multi-tasking in Rural China" A grandmother prepares the family meal while babysitting her grandchild in a rural China village. The kitchen is extremely basic but functional, lacking the modern amenities that those of us living in the First World take for granted everyday. Can you make do in this environment? I must admit that I could not. . . #instatravel #travelgram #mytravelgram #igtravel #tourism #tourist #travel #traveling #travelling #vacation #trip #holiday #visiting #travelphoto #house #home #simplelife #simplelifestyle #basiclife #Guangzhou #China #Asia #rural #oldtime #carllum_photography #FindBeautyAnywhere #olympus #getolympus #olympusem5 #microfourthirds

Everyone loves a good dinosaur skeleton. I expected to see lots in the Museum of Natural History in New York. But out of all the skeletons in the exhibit area, my favourite shot is this one right in the lobby of the museum--no admission required! I deliberately used a blur effect to mask out the masses of people and to make it look like the dinosaur is lunging out. . . #dinosaur #dinosaurskeleton #skeleton #fossil #bones #museum #ilovemuseums @museumofnaturalhistory #NewYork #NewYorkCity #igtravel #worldtravel #travelawesome #instatravel #bewander #letsgosomewhere #exploretocreate #olympuscamera #omd #getolympus #olympusomd #olympusem5 #carllum_photography #FindBeautyAnywhere
A few years later, we finally got to visit the real thing in Venice! We thought the Venetian copy in Vegas was pretty nice, but there's no substitute for the original! Again, this was at night and I managed to snap a shot without anyone around. . . #travel #traveling #travelling #igtravel #tourism #vacation #trip #holiday #visiting #instatravel #instago #travelgram #mytravelgram #igtravel #tourism #tourist #StMarksSquare #Venice #Italy #night #blackandwhite #monochrome #olympus #getolympus #olympusem5 #microfourthirds #carllum_photography #FindBeautyAnywhere #travelphoto
"A little slice of heaven". Starting off my trip collection with one of my favourite photos: this quaint little boutique hotel in Mykonos. It was so peaceful and heavenly that I would return to Greece just to stay at that hotel.

"Lightning on the Ground". The sun was reflecting off these still-naked trees in such a way that it looked like a lightning strike on the ground.

"Man Eating Flower?" This flower was really beautiful, but when I looked more closely, it started to take on a more menacing tone. Looks like a creature in a sci-fi flick ready to gobble you up. . . #flowers #flowerlover #flowerlovers #flowerloversofinstagram #pistil #closeup #macro #macrophotography #garden #gardenlovers #olympus #olympusem5 #microfourthirds #m43 #m43photography #omd #carllum_photography #FindBeautyAnywhere #menacing
