Enjoying the simple delights of taking photos. Leopoldplatz | Berlin, Germany

You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.

— Ansel Adams

Taking photos keeps me mindful. It allows me to be in the present and capture memories that I would otherwise forget. I capture moments of what I see, eat, do and mostly how I feel.  

Seeing old cameras reminds me of Tatay, my grandfather who passed away when I was 15. He was always with a camera, documenting his day and displaying them proudly in neat, labelled albums. It’s been 12 years since he passed but I smile and remember him whenever I see cameras like these out in the world.
