Great photos would not have been so good if they couldn't hide so well. It is like the word search puzzles.

Humanistic photography is the kind of photography I specialise. Taking photos of strangers is what I do. 

Photography needs a lot of spare time and energy. Walking with your camera, having nothing particular in your mind. Watching, hunting for the subject, waiting for the perfect moment, trying to communicate with strangers. Sometimes even trying to convince them that you are not a freak.

Good photos can be anywhere. Outside your window. With our friends or family. At the next corner of the street or somewhere in a place far away. Great photos would not have been so good if they couldn't hide so well. It is like the word search puzzles.

Photography can offer a lot of beautiful emotions to oneself. It can be an escape from the daily routine. It can push your brain work faster and your eyes see sharper.

Patience, audacity, persistence, politeness, speed, imagination and the ability of seeing the image in your mind before you press the button are some of the qualifications a photographer should have.
