When the power of words fails, photos do the story-telling.
As a photo enthusiast, I strive to capture the moment and see the beauty in all things whether it’s in a dump site, a colorful festival, or an ordinary Thursday morning.
I never took photography seriously until the family camera was entrusted to me years ago. It was the Power Shot A95—my first digital camera. I learned the basics by experimenting and trying to take artsy photos.
This is the artsiest photo I've ever taken with my point-and-shoot. Super proud!
I upgraded to an SLR years after—the 350D, which I still use.
As a photographer for our school newspaper back then, this was always on hand to capture history in the making. Not only did photos help the readers, it also did its own story-telling when words weren’t enough.
I ended up in a garbage dump on my birthday covering a story about our school's supposed illegal waste disposal.
