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.

Hi Dave... this is another great composition. BTW, what photo-editing software are you using? If you don't mind me asking. Thanks.


A common object with a unique presentation makes for interesting subject matter.

Is PP Paintshop Pro? Is that what you use on a regular basis?

PS Mine this time is HERE. Hope you can join me!


This is so great, I just love the composition of taking the ordinary and turning it into art.

The usual fire hysdrant never looked so beautiful! Love the hint of shadow around it!

Great photo! You have a photographer's eye.


Great idea. An often overlooked item. And often desperately sought when an emergency arises!


This photo, the way you've composed it, is just outstanding...an award winner to be sure.

My R T is "lady in red"...a portrait of my daughter. Come by and view her if you can find time, I'd love your visit!!

I love the colors behind the extinguisher, they give off a sense of emergency if that makes any sense
what I love about your photos is that a story leaps into my mind when I look at one


Nice shot. Love the colors and the composition.


Great photography here! Happy Ruby Tuesday <3


Really nice shot! I love the colors :)

Happy WW!


hope you never have to use one. Last week end, 2 schools were badly burnt. Some people got no brains,


Nice composition. I like the contrast of the walls with their texture to the smooth red surface of the fire extinguisher.


Once again, an ordinary object makes an extraordinary subject! Awesome work!
