A little bit of everything through the lens.

I'm always fascinated by aviation photography, most probably fueled by my love for airplanes and fighter jet.

My passion for these amazing flying machines was introduced by my god parents when I visit them in Taiwan long long time ago. I was about 4' tall at that time maybe even shorter. My god father like to bring my younger brother and I to some bookstores, he like to read, a good habit he told us. There's where I found some colorful books with tons of amazing pictures of fighter jets. From then on I have collected many many books of jets and commercial airline. Admiring their beauty and studying their specification and capability has became a big hobby.

Though my passion for airplanes has kind of degraded a little over the years, mainly because I have found many other hobbies I like too, admiring airplanes is still my favorite.

These shots were taken in Intercontinental Airport Houston (IAH). I can't wait for the airshow this October, it'll be my first airshow with a DSLR, Oooo..., goose bump!

Impressed by your knowledge of airplanes and its origin. I can only name 747! My Israeli neighbour next door used to be the maintenance crew of fighter jets back home.

Wow, cool neighbor you have! The Israeli Air Force has some of the most advance fighter jets and damn good fighter pilot. Hopefully I will get the chance to meet him when I visit you in Canada!
