2009 UPDATE:
I’ve just completed my first book, Photograph of Hands:

I proudly describe myself, on my personal website as a person of “many interests, many talents”.

Among other things, I am a writer, photographic artist, web designer, layout designer and teacher of natural health, particularly macrobiotics.

I had also ever been: an amateur musician (played the trombone), audiophile hifi dealer, natural foods cook and owner of an organic foods store.

Above all, I consider myself an artist – which is why I am here.

I express my art mainly through photography – and sometimes through “photoshopping”. You can view more of my images at my website art photograph gallery

As a photographic artist, I am somewhat “UPTIGHT” meaning my predominant style is Close UP / TIGHT cropping… but I am exploring the wider view.

I also call myself, and have been described by Asian Photography Magazine as a “spiritual photographer” as I enjoy spiritual subjects, such as Vesak (Buddhist) and Thaipusam (Hindu) festivals.

Another favorite subject is hands, especially combined with spirituality as in “hands in prayer”.

I shoot a lot of my pictures while walking along back alleys, especially wall markings / graffiti, so that makes me a “back alley” photographer as well.

Plus, I like to do some abstract work, shadows, everyday objects that lie around – what I call candid still life – as well as what I call candid portraits.

And then there is death… I like to show the beauty of dead things like dead flowers, leaves, birds and fish! Not at all gruesome, I assure you.

Of course, I shoot a bit of conventional stuffs as well, such as flowers – the lotus being my favorite and I recently did a series on The Dying Lotus.

But generally, you won’t find the usual sort of images like landscapes, architecture, portraits, cute children or nudes (well, no opportunity for that) here.

I hope you enjoy my work. Feel free to offer your critiques and especially your compliments ;-)

I look forward to being a member of this Red Bubble community – and to getting to know more of fellow artists here.

Amazing, brilliant commercial

Another gem of a YouTube find. Brilliant commercial Can make you cry, but make sure you watch till the end to see what product they are advertising. You may then laugh, or cry harder! / I marvel that the Thais came up with this. They are truly creative people.
