Why do you travel and photograph your journeys?
I managed to do that for 4 years while I traveled to 40 countries across 5 continents.
We only live once. It’s up to you to design the life that you want and create the memories that you wish to remember in your old days.
Hence the motto of my blog: “Life is short, create memories”
What is your favourite thing or item to photograph
1. It encourages me to go explore the city I live in as an ex-pat and get to know new neighborhoods.
2. urban or street photography, is all about capturing a unique moment or location in a city that will speak to the locals. i.e. capturing little artifacts only locals will know or a famous location with no one in it although it can be busy all day. It is all about surprising the viewer by showing a unique perspective on a location they’ve walked by thousands of times.
