The beauty of street photography is that after several thousand walks, suddenly things come together all in harmony. It is very hard to see that moment and even capture it without going through failures. But when you succeed, it is going to give you the most rewarding feeling ever.

Beauty of the mundane

I am repeating a quote by Elliott Erwitt.

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

A new crosswalk

Sometimes life throws a new crosswalk at you. It is a path that you’ve never crossed before. That is why you might be very afraid of it. However, whether you take it or not is totally up to you. Nobody can do it for you.

A bird coming off the christmas tree

I don’t usually take a photo of homeless. The homeless is not a subject in this image. I just saw a bird coming off the christmas tree with a big question mark. I see doubt and hope at the same time. That’s all.
