Stories of my Journey

Life is about exploring and experiencing new things in life.

It all started when my wife introduced me to photography. It was just to capture some memories during our travels. Little did I know that it is going to be more than just a hobby for me. It has opened my eyes and mind to new things, seeing things differently from then on. Not just about capturing beautiful memories, but I started seeing things in frames and opening my eyes to every single movement, light and beauty in the surrounding. I used to just walked by and head straight to my destination, but now, I started noticing the leaves fall, drops from the rain, feeling the breeze, plants, birds and everything that I can experience along the way. Yes, it turned out that my walk became longer but I have grown to appreciate life differently from then on. The more I learn about photography, the more I see the beauty surrounding me.

At first, it was all about capturing the iconic tourist locations then slowly, it changed to people walking towards the location, or interaction of tourist, bench at the park, patterns or lines around and generally everything that looked interesting. I wanted to capture something unique, something artistic that you can hang on the wall but does not shout "Paris!", but rather have a conversation about what or where it could be. It could be abstract but have hints of where it was taken.
