He has made every thing beautiful and appropriate in his time.

He has also planted eternity in the human heart,

Yet man cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. (Ecclesiastes 3:11)


Photography, for me, is a life-making process.

While searching for scenery and creating images,

it is like walking a path toward God and having a conversation with God,

in prayers, in waiting, in thankfulness, and even in worship.

Whether the time is favorable or not,

all are the sublime moments of encounter with God.


The creative process was difficult, however my wife always shared ideas and wrote words to express what was hidden in my heart to help me, so that I was able offer an ode to life and praise to God not alone.


On that day, I will not be able to take any photos with me.

Only the momentary touch and love will accompany me into eternity.

Chasing Light Against Wind

Through the light, simplicity can be seen.

With the wind, creativity can soar.

Embraced by love, memories have warmth.


That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. (John 1:9)

Song of Songs


Where evil is, sow good

In times of fear, give peace

When darkness comes, give praise


As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters. (Song of Songs 2:2)
