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...

I'm sure many of us can relate to this scene...I know I for one can.

This has a wonderful mood to it, from the two slumped people. A nice simple shot with great effect.

Although there is very little in this image, every little detail counts. It is packed full of information - another of you shots containing a lot of story.
