From abstract streets to nature just being awesome, I enjoy capturing all moments.
Finding those unique moments in time that will not repeat and snapping a shot is what gets me excited.
This is a shot I took in the middle of Tokyo, in the middle of the day – hence the name, Midday Moonlight.
Thousands of people around me – all in a rush to nowhere. Buildings reaching for the heavens. And amongst the chaos, straight above us all, was the moon and the clouds dancing and forming a balance that, when snapped, added a Fan Ho style angle to a frame.
It’s a black and white shot that I still enjoy looking at, inspiring me to find more natural lines in nature.
