Macro Photography

Sunsets, Sunrises, Skylines 



Photography is a passionate hobby of mine.

With some apprehension over the price, I bought a Canon EOS D30 digital SLR camera at the beginning of 2001. Almost 20000 frames later, I haven't looked back. It has revived my inspiration and creativity, as if it had transported me back 14 years to when I bought my first SLR, the Canon EOS 650 (the first Canon EOS SLR, along with the 620).

It wasn't because it was a new camera; a thief had triggered the replacement of the 650 with an Elan II and I simply continued to feel like a family snapshot photographer. No, the change was because I had been liberated from the cost consciousness and delayed feedback of using film. I can experiment with virtually no incremental cost, and get near instant gratification (or frustration, as the case may be). I felt as if I was rediscovering the joy in photography.

Now I find I am slowly building a web page with some of the images I have made and found interesting. My goal is simply to share. And if you are at all considering "going digital", maybe these words and images will help you decide.
