I’m always looking for opportunities to do some storytelling even when my mobility is restricted. Here the street vendors are waiting for the train to pass before resuming their work. The stalls are so close to the train that the train is within arms length to everyone’s faces. Shot with Canon EOS R +Canon EF70-200mm F2.8L III USM. @canonasia @canonsingapore #canonsg #canoneosr
Today is one of those days that is filled with overwhelming emotions and plenty of firsts for me. My first photography talk, first time presenting to a crowd over a hundred and first time feeling relevant in photography after giving tips and advices to people who were like me two years ago. I’ll always appreciate the opportunity given by @canonsingapore and also the support shown by my friends who came down to attend the talk. You guys know who you are! Thank you once again for those who came down and hope you guys had good takeaways and learning points from the talk!
It’s funny how people dream about a particular moment that they hope to achieve but when it finally comes, they tend to shy away from it out of fear. I’m afraid of failing to meet expectations, letting people down and letting myself down especially after moving in all the time and effort. But I’m also very excited to prove myself wrong and all the doubters wrong. I’ll been waiting for this day since two years ago and I can’t wait to stand in front of an audience and tell my story. My journey so far.
Funny thing about revisiting a spot is that no matter how hard you try to edit it to look like the previous one, it’ll never be the same.
I prefer to be unobtrusive when it comes to taking photos on the streets. I love observing people and not involve myself too much especially when I’m overseas. Candid shots are what I aim to capture. It’s a great way to record people and their relationships with each other and the space they occupy. That way, stories, events, feelings and emotions are all captured in a frame. Just 6 more days to my photography talk next week. For those who are going, keep a look out for the captions in my posts for now onwards and you’ll find them familiar on the day!

Was looking through my photos that I had uploaded earlier and I spotted some mistakes that have been previously missed. Those mistakes are really big ones and I’m honestly quite disappointed for missing them out. But I guess this is a sign that everyone is growing at their own pace everyday and there’s no need to be so harsh on yourself. Polish yourself little by little each day and push on with life and eventually everything will work itself out (hopefully) Shot with Canon EOS R + Canon RF24-105mm F4.0L USM. @canonsingapore @canonasia #canonsg #canoneosr
Good things come when you least expect them. On the 10th day of our Everest Base Camp trek when our minds were only focusing on our descend and back to civilisation and comfort, we came across a Tibetan monastery right beside our lodge. The cold and fatigue were telling us to rest for the hard descend the day after but ultimately we made the decision to wake up for sunrise and discovered that part of the monks and nuns daily routine is to walk around the monastery and give the wheels a spin while chanting Om Mani Padme Hum Mantra. What an experience it was to witness a daily ritual that it’s not commonly seen in the modern society we live in.

No one said you have to a perfect model for everyone once you hit 60. Every block represents an experience in your life that makes you unique. At the end of our lives when we look at ourselves, we might not look perfect, the things that we’ve done with our lives might not be perfect but know for sure that people around you definitely benefited from your presence. Take Jenga for example, no one cares about how ugly the block looks just before it falls, we only care about the fun we had during the whole process.
Presenting the daily lives of everyday people through my eyes and lens. Sharing and creating stories through your own imagination and experiences through street photography. I’m very grateful to be given this opportunity by @canonsingapore to share with everyone what street photography is to me and some of the things to look for when you’re doing street photography. It can really open and widen your perspective of the things around you that you’ve missed and forgotten. For those in Singapore who are interested in this talk, please do use the registration link in my profile bio as there’s limited space for the talk! It’s free so hurry up and register and see you on 14th Sept! I would also like to thank everyone for the support so far especially those who were with me since day 1 and @canonsingapore, giving me encouragement,advice and opportunity on how to improve my photography and editing. It’s been an amazing journey of learning and growing together, meeting amazing people in this field so far! I appreciate the love and support so far!!
Since rules and agreements aren’t followed diligently all the time, they’re meant to be broken. Is that correct?
