Do you have any favorite location to take pictures at?

Shinjuku and Shibuya! I love the place where I can feel energy and vibes. That’s why I chose Shinjuku and Shibuya. There are so many people that mean there are so many opportunities to take good pics. These stations are on my way to my office, so I can walk around and just take a few pictures easily.


What is your all-time favorite picture?

This pic is my favorite. I like to take a picture different styles that are urban and classics. I know I need to improve my skill and point of view for taking good classic one, but I think it’s not too bad, right?
