About me

DSC_0822On this blog I will posts pictures that I took during the last years, mainly around Asia.

I am not a professional photographer, I just started to realize the beauty you see through the lens – may it be the people or the landscapes.

Honestly I have to admit, that photography was something very annoying to me back then when I was a child / teenager, since my dad always had a camera and was constantly taking pictures. So I can definitely say that I don’t belong to those people who have always loved photography.

But now I do! And although I spend more time with clicking through all the awesome sources of inspiration in the internet, and while I think that my photography might just be another drop in the ocean I practice a lot – mainly when I’m traveling. I realize that I see things very different through the lens, and more often than before I think my eyes are more open if there is a rangefinder in front of them than without.

    • Thanks Trish for the compliment and for visiting and following my blog.

      I’ll do my best to post new pictures on a regular basis. But then, somehow I’ll have to travel again, I guess 😉


  1. Thank you Elmer!

    Nice pics in your blog as well. Recently I realized, that you are locate in Malate, Manila. I’m leaving Malate this evening, otherwise we could have met for a photowalk or a beer. Maybe next time…
