Taking photos is an interest that I neglected for a long time. 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 street scenes, street art, landscapes, music performances and cats. For something a little deeper, you can view the Between City and Countryside series (in which I explore the border areas between urban and natural environments).

Street Art Photos
I like walking around and taking photos of street art. Here are articles and galleries of my photos showcasing street art in other cities. Most of the articles are on my artjouer site.
Still Life Series
Sky Diary Series
This series is all about the sky: cloud formations, sunrises, sunsets and storms.
Generally, I go for a sense of realism in the photos, and rather than just select the best angle and compositions, I would rather present the viewer with a few different perspectives of the same subject.
When editing photos, I will normally adjust basic things like levels, contrast, exposure and white balance in order to get a result that is sharp but looks more or less like what things looked like in real life. I will avoid ‘artificial’ effects added like lens flares, added bokeh or extreme color grading.
Though I go for realism, I find my photo-taking tends to present a very subjective view of each city. For example, my version of Kyoto looks very spiritual, tranquil and in tune with tradition, like something out of a Miyazaki movie. My version of the often-rain-drenched city of Vancouver, in contrast, is all sunshine, blue skies and beaches.
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, so I am now moving the photos that were in specialized accounts into my main account.
