About



Travel. Lanscape. Architecture. Life from an ultra-wide perspective.*
I got my first interchangeable lens camera in 2013 (a Sony NEX-5R), after being blown away by its low-light capability when a friend took a night shot with the little camera. It has been a fun journey since; through trial and error and loads of time spent on reading I came to appreciate photography more and more, and it has shaped how I see the world. It certainly has made me more aware of the imagery surrounding me at the very least.

This site is a culmination of a favourite hobby. It collects pictures from the occasional travels and also from everyday life. Admittedly most pictures here have an ultra-wide perspective. It isn't a self-imposed design constraint, but rather it is a product of how I perceive the world — I tend to view things from a macroscopic level and like having an all-encompassing perspective. I suppose my interest in landscape and architecture is a factor as well. Having said that, it won't be just ultra-wide pictures; there will be the occasional portraits and quirky pictures :)
