I am what I am... Almost a quarter-century-year-old guy with a decade-long interest in photography... Simply put, I like taking photographs... Not simply put, I like seeing the world through the pinhole...

I also enjoy looking at great photographs. Many of the things I learned about photography has been through looking at other people's photographs, trying to understand what they wanted to do and trying even harder not to duplicate them. I have practiced a lot to get better, I was at that threshold when I would start thinking that I got it. But one day, I heard this famous quote from the very well known French photographer, Henri-Cartier Bresson: “Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”
I realize that I have a lot to learn, just as everyone else. And I decided to explore deeper in photography. And I though that I may as well set out to this journey to dig deeper, explore, question and discuss along with others. So, in my part of the blog, I will post some of the best work of some great photographers, try to discuss and see through their photographs; share the feelings and thoughts that they evoke in me.
p.s. I have completed my first 10,000 just last year...
