I have always been beguiled by cute kids, but I'm even more drawn to the close relationship between father and son. I miss my father...

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

that is one brightly dressed kid! great contrast of cultures visually - ethnically not from that part of the world, but you wouldn't know it if the bus didn't have the advertisements on the side... very cool. great shot!

a split second of reality -- beautifully done -- and you have such a wonderful knack to capture these buses so well! i think most people would just wait til they are out of frame -- but you include them and it is faaabulous! an excellent and touching scene!

It brings many memories.... I used to carry my little man around like that. Fathers and sons have to bond !
