"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

"Enjoy Your Life", You Said.

I've had just enough time to...   enjoy my life not yours.

Taken while walking through the main road of Yangon, Myanmar.

Enjoy Life, you said.
Well, I tried.
And I find it bitter with no means to sweeten it.

Change my attitude, you said.
Well, I did.
But there was no harmony in my singing.

Hope for the better, you said.
Well, I hoped and prayed.
Even as each day gets darker than before the day.

So now, it is my fault you said.
I think I agreed.

You with your fancy car and positive attitude.
With no need to hope for your days are bright.
And your nights are peaceful.
Go ahead and enjoy your life,
But stop telling me to enjoy mine.
It is MY LIFE!


Live Your Life Feat. Rihanna 

Got Everybody Watchin What I Do 
Come Walk In My Shoes
And See The Way I'm Livin If You Really Want To 
Got My Mind On My Money 
And I'm Not Goin Nowhere 
So Keep On Gettin Your Paper 
And Keep On Climbing 
Look In The Mirror And Keep On Shining 
Till The Game Ends, Till The Clock Stops 
We Gon' Post Up On The Top Spot 
Livin The Life, The Life


  1. That sounds just like me. But you can continue telling me to enjoy life. Because a voice that cares is better than none.

  2. A 1000 Reasons
    I was walking down the main street in Yangon, Myanmar after a long day of visiting factories when I spotted this bus passed by me. I instantaneously know I've to make that shot and only one chance at that. It was a blur of movement as I switched on my camera, focused, zoomed, composed, shot before the bus rumbled away. Most of the shots I made and you see here in this photostream are shot within 7 seconds. I'm used to this as I'm a fast shooter. This is one of the rarer one where I have to make it really quick. I'm pleased at what I managed to capture and the look on the passenger's face is a bonus together with what is written on the body of the bus a chance for me to write my story.

    I like the contrast in this pic...His expression and the writings on the bus, real good timing.

    A 1000 Reasons
    Looking at the picture, I saw some reflections so I must have shot it from another car! I've not get down from the vehicle yet! I think I need some help with my memory. But that part about getting the quick shot is true. Strange how your memory play tricks on you.

    thanks for reminding. but the guy on the bus is not so convinced... maybe he wanted to be home by now but the bus got broken.... so many times happens with our trains here in Italy and personally I get pissed off but after so many times with that attitude I realize it get only worst so let's Enjoy Life in any case....
