I have been taking pictures (as an amateur) since 1968 when I bought my first Diana camera with my pocket money. After having owned other film cameras, I graduated to purely digital photography in 2007. I've come to realize that I tend to think very graphically, as a person - I read and write well but prefer seeing the "whole picture" so-to-speak; maybe this is why photography attracts me so much. I like doing street photography as it enables me to interact with people. I do however, also dabble in "miscellaneous" picture-making such as Landscapes, Conceptual or Abstract styles. I do not enjoy doing only Black and White Photography - the world out there is full of colour, after all.
I take the picture if I like it visually; almost a spur-of-the-moment thing.
