About

Obsessed with the paintings of orange trails in the night sky, I have major love affairs with reds and oranges. Recent times have seen a newly discovered crush for the color green. I like colors. I also like black & whites. Vibes are more my thing than ‘things’. Unless it’s my apple products or my digital SLR. I tried photography as a profession for a little bit, and although one of the best experiences ever, I have come to realise that sometimes working for your passion kills it – at least when it is dictated to you. Very content now to shoot whatever whenever and wherever and find it a never-ending source of energy from which I draw from. I tend to photograph or write what I am unable to verbalise. Speech may not be my strongest asset but I see and hear quite well thank you. I am also thankful for many this and thats.

So thank you for looking.

  1. Oh my gosh! you have so many cameras and lenses, I’m really jealous. I shoot with a Canon Rebel XSi, and I have only two lenses: an 18-55mm and a 50mm. I would love more lenses to be able to try more things and be versatile ( I certainly don’t have the luxury to afford another SLR!)…. any suggestions?

    Thanks for checkin out my blog!

    • Hey Jon … I think that selecting lenses really boils down to your style of shooting and what you love to shoot. Renting out some lenses for the day would be a good way to figure out which ones you like. The 50mm is a great versatile lense and so handy! I find I use my 15-85mm a bit since it has a good range and is a good walkabout with good sharpness. In the meantime what you’ve got should let you do quite a bit (except for the long end). Cheers x
