I've never had a doubt in my mind that I'm an artist by heart and photography is one of the media that I happen to express myself with. While I dabble in many things creative, I've also been painting, which I believe contributes to the style of my photography. Remember this image that I made from Hoi An, Vietnam? I've been playing in mind, for years, to accentuate the beautiful texture that only comes with age and wear. I think I've done its justice today. What do you think?
Advanced means of transportation have made a huge difference in how we do business and how far we get to travel to in our lives. Although I've been travelling and taking photographs for years, not until today did I realize how close I can be with somebody, brought together by photography.If you remember, I made a trip to Vietnam and Cambodia in November of 2010. While every city that we visited was amazing, Hoi An remained one of favorites due to it's diverse culture background and colorful architecture. So you may remember this image that I've posted on my Facebook fan page or on Flickr.
Can you believe just one month earlier, someone took an image at the same spot? Mind you, it's on an off-beat street that I don't think every tourist visits and this lady lives all the way in Catalonia. What can I say? Great minds think alike! :-)

When I travel, I seek out things of tradition, things that carry a long history with them. As everywhere in this world, people are in a rush to demolish the old and build the new, those things are harder to locate and become rarity in many cases. So I consider myself lucky when I was able to capture this lady, so elegantly passing by the water in her traditional outfit ("Ao Dai") when I was already enjoying a visual feast in the ancient town of Hoi An, Vietnam.
What has become a rarity to you that you grew up with?
