“Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.” — Helen Keller

"reminiscing"

"One of nature's masterpieces - the family"

"a beautiful day"

At the beach, Repulse Bay, Hong Kong

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...

A lovely image of the beach with the sun trying to burn through the mist. Excellent.

I love the couple this image and the quote (I have on my notebooks) offer to us. I love the one with the family I commented on your Flick'r and this one makes us closer to you, a single man deep in his thoughts who's able to hear wisdom's voice even if it is not that easy each day to apply ;) The light is gorgeous on the sea and so inspired in the heart of Master Sun. Thanks for sharint the invitation not to forget that, indeed, the essence of feeling good lies within us. Have a relaxing week-end, dear*

Hellen Keller is saying it well. I often say success and happiness are both a state of mind. Nevertheless, happiness is faster reached.
This is a great picture about humility and the knowledge of oneself.
My blessings to you for 2014 !
