A beautiful tree, a pretty face, a gorgeous landscape - all worth the attention and love.
Yet I choose to look closer to find that broken branch with intricate patterns of chipped wood, those mesmerizing eyes with so much unsaid, that petite rock squeezed between giant boulders as if holding them in place together.
The part sometimes can be more eloquent than the whole. More often than not I try to take a second look and discover a part which is indeed 'extraordinary', 'appealing' and 'unique' and when I do, that makes the subject of my photography.
My interest in photography started when I was just a kid and got hold of a bulky b/w point-and-shoot camera. Over the following years I have tried to capture what captures my attention. Sometimes I try to look and find things, other times they just happen to be waiting there to be found.
Local to Bay Area, I try to travel wherever life takes me.
