I would call myself a serious amateur photographer. I used to shoot on film. However, over the last three years I have moved to digital, first with a Sony Cybershot F707 and currently with a Nikon D70.
I live in Singapore.
I love to shoot people, especially solos, if they are willing. When I travel, then I shoot just about everything--street scenes, architecture, lakes, mountains, sculptures, patterns, lines, textures, etc.
Because of my love for photography, I even have university students in my class on creative thinking do photo portfolios as part of the course. Not that I can teach photography but I am able to inspire them to take up this art field.
My most memorable photo travels were in Kyoto and Bangkok. Kyoto in autumn is what I call heaven on earth--a single tree can display green, yellow, red and golden colours. Imagine going to a hilltop surrounded by trees like this. If you are lucky you can shoot a genuine geisha or maiko (apprentice geisha) walking gracefully in her platform shoes.
Next month my wife and I are off to Spain for a month in time for the many festivals such as the fair in Seville, the patio festival in Cordoba, the annual dancing horse parade in Jerez and many others.
