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.

dare to be different #2 - low tide

dare to be differrent is my way of being myself in photography - reckless, no rules, be cool and just enjoy what i do.



lovely shot, so much is happening in it. the light is extraordianry! love the mood


i guess, in photography,to be different is a self expression, a mark of who you are as an artist....and what an expression this is.

bold, brave and yes, daring!!!! the light is as what biana says, extraordinary.

eng of poetic murmurings


Those sun rays are superb. But please can I see the original one too?

This is incredible. Absolutely amazing. I'd love to see your before and afters.


A very low tide it would seem! What time of year was this? It's rare that the difference in tides is so great in mid-summer. Spectacular light once again!


~what a show you have seen...the way you captured the mere essence of each is simply exquisite...warm wishes and brightest blessings~


This is fabulous. Do you use Photoshop? I think I'm going to have to invest...


And your results are stunning!


Hi Dave, I'm enjoying the depth of your photos. The pics seem to tell a story.


Keep on doing that, and I will TRY to do the same....


Well done! Wonderful colors and light!!:-)

You said " what I do " ! I am now wondering - you or the nature made the colour of this sky ;)

But the photo is thrilling!
