I am a 42-year old husband and father. I was an avid computer gamer and DOF, F-stops and the like were foreign to me until my wife introduced me to photography.

I began shooting during the latter part of March 2010 and quickly became addicted to it. I started this blog to share my journey and to learn along the way. Special thanks to my wife Eng who encouraged me and to all my friends in Blogosphere who shared their knowledge and taught me to further this craft.

I would like to have a sea view from that bench :D


Thanks for the note about HDR processing. I have a few more baby steps to take before I get there!


This is amazing, Dave. You are so talented.


This photo really tells a story. I look at it and imagine all the people who have sat together and passed the time of day with wonderful stories. Great shot.

I agree with Scott - this shot really tells a story and I LOVE good stories.

Amazing progress!
Best of days to you :)


Beautiful composition.


It looks like such a peaceful place to sit and relax.

Greyscale Territory

This seat outside old sacred walls must hold many stories of memories and dreamings! A beautiful atmosphere in this shot!

Kilauea Poetry

Fantastic image here..so much detail! The one with the tombstones against the blue sky and white clouds is cool!


Nice one! The HDR really brings out the grain of the wood and the roughness of the stone walls.

I've entered a major international photo competition (details are on my blog) and would be most grateful if you'd click through and rate my portfolio (just click on the stars at the bottom (preferably the 5th star - "fantastic" - LOL), easy peasy, no registration or personal details needed). Thanks so much!

I suppose the bench has witnessed a lot, with all the people sitting there with their conversations, loved ones, thoughts over the years. Lots to review and recall during those times it stands empty, waiting for the next memory to arrive.

Love that reddish color here. Great shot as always!



this photo has such a touching quality to it in addition to being flawless


I love this! I't looks really great! It has a nice feel to it


Do people live here? I suppose if the Hotel Inspector comes here to inspect, she would have a fit if this is a hotel.


This has the feel of anticipation, as if the bench is waiting for someone.


Holy Cow! What an awesome shot! So relaxing...

If that bench could only speak...!

Happy RT!
