Every photo is a storyteller. Some give a lot more details than the others.

Some need more than just pixels to draw out the actual intensity of its vibrant colours.

Some photos need words.

This section is a personal selection of the more interesting captures I’ve made. Each snapshot includes a short story. An explanation, a thought, a memory that’s triggered by a collection of pixels that I’ve managed to save from my past escapades.

They will be mostly factual, a glimpse of the moment when the shot was taken, but there might be some fictional shorts. At least, I hope there will be, if I ever learn to write decently.

But there was a time when I badly needed a fashion police...

I Should’ve Spent That $1 Extra
  Every budget traveler has been torn on whether he will spend an extra dollar/s for inessential things during travel. Extra costs such as souvenirs, added convenience to the cheapest transportation option, a dinner in a highly recommended local restaurant or whatnot. In my case, while walking around the temples of Angkor Wat, I decided...

Fishing With a Shotgun
It was a simple structure made of bamboo poles lying on top of the lake. Its silhouette and reflection in the water accents the scenic view of a calm and peaceful dusk in a countryside. For a moment, I wondered about its purpose. It must be for fishing, I thought. Maybe they tie fishnets in...
