Photography

Taking photos is an interest that I neglected for quite a few years. These days, I am trying to find some more time for it. I alternate between using a Fuji X100T and a Sony NEX-7. At the moment, I mainly take photos of cityscapes, street scenes, street art and landscapes. In general, when I am taking a photo, I am aiming for a very realistic but visually appealing depiction of whatever or whoever is in front of the camera. Despite this attention paid to realism, the photos are still very subjective. For example, the photos of Kyoto certainly look like Kyoto, but they tend to emphasize the spiritual, traditional and nature-loving sides of the city.

Photo albums online

I am in the process of reorganizing my images online, using different accounts for different types of photos. It will take sometime to get everything organized; however if you are interested in any of the following kinds of photos, you can consider visiting the related account. Recently Flickr introduced a storage limit, so I am now moving the photos that were in specialized accounts into my main account.

  1. Great Work! AwsomE. I love, photography, music and writing. Just came across this website to find some mp3 background music. Really liked your stuff. Keep up. :)

    • Thanks for commenting. Your site has lovely pics as well. Perhaps I will begin shooting people more frequently. As I am a beginner, it is better to start with objects and landscapes as they won’t get impatient with me as I try to choose the best framing, settings, etc.
