She, with her bearemy and little violin

Just one look, Elena completely stole my heart. Oh… the look of her eyes, don’t you just adore her? There’s no doubt that she will grow up to be a gorgeous girl. I sometimes pre-visualize what I want to photograph and then talk and direct when

The Dancing Bay Lights

From a distance, the Bay Bridge turns into a shimmering dancing sculpture after dusk. Have you spot the passing traffic, the moving clouds, and the shifting weather in the light pattern racing across the span? It’s hard for me to resist capturing this

Bridalveil Fall in misty fog photo

Yosemite in early spring

I have always been grateful that we live just a few hours away from the beautiful Yosemite. The past few weeks has been tough for me. Life has taken me through miracle, hope, anxiousness, hopeless, and emptiness, as if nothing happened. Have you ever been through this

The story traces back to one year ago when I was shopping around for vintages stuffs for my wedding. I found Grant’s vintage “treasure box” (the size of a garage) a year ago and ever since then, Hero has been fascinating about Grant’s collection of vintage tools and wooden
