On a very a cold day a few weeks ago, I had a lot of fun doing this modest shooting for well know sneaker brand Onitsuka Tiger. Despite the freezing wind, I was pretty happy to exchange my worn-out loafers for a fresh pair of bouncy sneakers and pose, walk, run, jump and sometimes seat to feature those burgundy Shaw Runner.

We all have a secret passion for architecture: some of us are into historical buildings and monuments, while the rest remains astounded in front of cutting-edge futuristic designs. Architecture is a knowledge you may want to continually improve with travels and reading books such as 100 Contemporary Architects by Taschen. The good thing about this Taschen book is that it basically gathers the top of the crop of 20th century best architects and their main breathtaking designs.
