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 never ever see this beautiful bird if it wasn't you, so thank you! What is he thinking about?... I like the sun spots of light in the background!


Love the gold and black background. It makes for nice contrast for the bird.
