I’ve found myself constantly slowing down among the daily busyness to enjoy more of everything around as I approach the slide-down section of the backslope from the timeline of age. I’m taking everything more easy. It’s the quality of life that matters after all. It’s less about material stuff than the spiritual fulfillment. Probably this newfound philosophy in me has found its way to the hobby part of my life. Yes, it’s nice to have a new camera with functions that blow one’s mind. One that allows the sharp images to ravish your eyes, when the elements are right and the there is good light. But at the end of the day, it is still the image that matters. It is still how the photographic eye interprets a scene all right that makes the image click.
So it’s still me carrying my camera everyday to try my luck around each corner where a photo worthy opportunity may present itself. My 5-year-old a55, 4-year-old Leica X1 and 2-year-old GR are my constant companions to see this world through the lens. Oh, yes, I love the Leica Q and no less the RX1ii. But I leave them to the shops. They won’t teach me how to come up with a good photo as the daily practices do. Here are some of the photos I took today.
