I believe we can make great photographs with humble gear. Though I equally enjoy using top-of-the-line equipment. However, using cameras with limitations makes us stronger. From film, to early digital, to modern high-tech cameras — they all have their place.

I love capturing urban life, especially in the evening. I seek color, the glow of lights, and reflections. I dabble in street photography because the city is more than just buildings. I aspire to capture the mundane in an interesting way.

I started this blog in 2010, growing to over 2700 posts. I discuss gear, do equipment reviews and sprinkle in some philosophy. I feature photographs of my travels, events, and things man-made.

I use cameras from different brands, though I have a soft spot for Fujifilm and Olympus. I’m a collector with over 50+ classic film and digital cameras. Gear is good, collecting is fun, but ultimately it’s about the photographs and the stories that surround them.
