"The best camera is the one that's with you" ~ Chase Jarvis

I was 12 when I took my first photo with an old manual SLR that my Dad lent me. I remember it was on one Mother's Day parade of our local Kindergarten where my Mom was the Headmistress. I wasn't half bad as it turned out, I even made money from the sale of those photos. And that's the start of my journey with the world of Photography. A journey that continued until a few years back when Analog made its slow but sure transition to Digital. That's when I somehow lost interest in taking photos, at least not with my SLR (I had a Canon EOS 5 by then).

Then recently I rediscovered my passion with Photography though in different form this time, I fell in love with iPhoneography! With all its limitation, compare to a full-fledged DSLR, an iPhone can take surprisingly very good photo. That and its obvious ubiquitousness, is really making it 'the best camera that's always with me'. I love the fact I am able to catch the moment around me when ever I want - where ever I want. The limitation of the iPhone itself has actually taught me to be a better photographer, to concentrate on the light, the composition, and basically the actual part of 'making a picture' rather than worry about the gear. More over, I really love that I can instantly 'share' these pictures to the world. After all what's the use of taking photos if we are not showing them to people, right? There is a feeling of fulfilment there somewhere.

At this moment the iPhoneography movement is still in its infancy, but it has been generating a great interest and avid followers among ordinary Photographers and as a matter of fact among ordinary people.

You should find that most of my photos here were taken and edited with an iPhone.
