Where I am
So, I haven’t uploaded in a while again. But things have been going good. Great, in fact. I have come to learn many things in the past year or so. I have grown a bit more. I have done things I never done before. I have stepped out of my comfort zone. I have experienced feelings and emotions I have never felt before. I have learnt to be patient. I have learnt to wait, to be content. I have seen how God can change a life. I have seen how God works in ways unfathomable, in His time. I have come to accept who I am in God’s eyes and my own as well. 
I don’t usually have many portraits of myself. But this is where I am. And of course, there will be better, and the best is yet to come. And it is good.
"A Place Only You Can Go" by needtobreathe

Pain is alive in a broken heart
The past never does go away
We were born to loveĀ 
And we’re born to pay
The price for our mistakes

Grace, she comes with a heavy load
Memories, they can’t be erased
Like a pill I swallow, he makes me well
But leaves an awful taste

Oh, I know this song won’t do
Enough to prove my love to you
In my heart you’ll always know
There is a place only love can go
There is a place only you can go

Take my notions and words to heart
This is the cry of a man
I can’t bring you fortune or noble life
But I’ll love you all I can

Oh, I know this song won’t do
Enough to prove my love to you
In my heart you’ll always know
There is a place only you can go

Oh, I know this song won’t do
Enough to prove my love to you
In my heart you’ll always know
There is a place only love can go
There is a place only you can go
Hands
This was hands down one of my favourite photos from the shoot. (hurhurhur)
It just captures the fragility of the flower, the softness of the hands, and the blue background fitted quite perfectly.
Thank you Daph, for your beautiful hands. 
Daphne
This crazy girl is an amazing ball of energy. She came to Perth to study for a year and I met her at church. This was right before Cindy (the other photographer) left for Melbourne too. 
The three of us went for a shoot (last year August) in Fremantle and my photos never appeared (as usual) until 9 months later (or never). People don’t even expect me to post up photos anymore haha. Well, here is it. And more to come. ;)
Stars
The sky lit up, and we saw the wondrous expanse. The photos do not even capture the magnificence we saw that night. I’m glad I went even though it was last minute. I was reminded of how great God is and how small we are. And how he spoke, and the stars of the night appeared, as with everything else around us.
"When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars which you have set in place; what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?" Psalm 8:3-4
The message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.
Deuteronomy 30:14
Snowflakes
Dug out from the old archives, this was one of the winters in Beijing. I don’t remember where or when I took this photo exactly, but the snowflakes intrigued me. It was probably one of the first few encounters I have of snow and not being to experience snow during winter in Perth sure brings back the nostalgia. 
Again, taken with a simple point and shoot and I’ve never edited it. I kind of wish there was more bokeh in the background, but I didn’t even know what bokeh was back then.
More to come. 
The First
Since I haven’t been taking photos or posting anything lately, due to work, church, more work and just lack of passion in general, I think I owe it to myself to really find what drives me. So I decided to start from the beginning. How it all got started. 
This photo was taken in the summer of  2006, with a simple point and shoot camera while on a family trip to Xinjiang, China. We were touring around the countryside, and at this particular lake, I broke away from the tour group, went off the path to snap this photo. And this photo is one of the main reason I took up photography later on.
I just felt the need to post this photo up. I’m glad I still have it, and it remains unedited. And I’ll try to post a bit more from now on.
