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.

ysabelle's series #1 - mooring

this was taken by my 6 year old daughter with her Casio Exilim EX-Z1000 on one of our photo walks. From time to time I will be posting some of her photos here and I will call it Ysabelle's series.



Love the colors in the picture !
A real eyecapture :)

I am thinking your daughter has your talent! This is very GOOD!


Very nice! Won't you visit my page too!


Awesome shot, so vibrant!


WOW! She´s great! Beautiful picture, perfect!
Give her a hug from me!


Children of this age tend to find subjects that adults wouldn't think about.


I was at an exhibition just last night that featured the work of photographers aged 5-14. And I use the term in the strictest sense, these are photographers -- they just happen to be very young. This shot could easily have been on that wall.

I got my first camera (a Kodak Instamatic 104) when I was six. What I didn't have was a forum, a venue for the work I was doing at the time. (Nor did my parents usually understand "why I took a picture of that".)

I applaud your support of your daughter's art. She has quite an eye already, and with the right nurturing and guidance she will go very far -- as a professional if she chooses, or simply as an artist.

Exceptional shot Ysabelle! One of many I am certain. I'm very much looking forward to seeing more of your work.


Wow, Ysabelle has a great eye - something many adults still haven't developed. I'll definitely be back to see more!
