Images from experiences form the bulk of our memories. Photography is just that—a series of images that tells the story of your life through what you see.

Embracing the Beauty of the World
Welcome to DLifeJourney where I share my photographic works.
After acquiring a BFA in Computer Arts and Animation from San Francisco, Academy of Art University in 2005, I worked as a professional artist mainly in the video games industry.
It has always been in my blood to create art ever since I knew how to hold a pencil, so naturally this site became a source of my creative output. I have always felt that photography founded me rather than the other way around. It happened a couple of years back when I visited Rome for the first time. I was so overwhelmed by the beauty of the place that I needed something to capture those moments. That made me picked up a camera for the first time and I had no idea what I was doing, other than pressing the shutter. Like what people use to say, the rest is history.
I became a self-taught photographer and combined with my years of experience in digital art, I would like to share with you my appreciation of mother earth and its physical manifestation through the renditions of my photographic work.
I am heavily inspired by nature and its energy. Translating what I see into what is being portrayed in my art is the best way I know for sharing this amazing energy with you. I hope the pictures shared on this site will inspire you as much as it did for me.
The still image has always been a fascinating medium. What can be more magical than the camera? The only device that I know of which is able to freeze a slice of time, the most precious commodity that we cannot own and control. The world is always evolving and in motion. It is unlikely that time will ever stop for anybody, other than the moments captured in our memories or through art and photography. As time passes us by, we sometimes miss the most wonderful things amidst all the distractions of the world. The captured frame allows us to relive those lost scenes and reminds us of the things that we might otherwise have missed.
It is so true that what we focus on expands. How our life turns out is a result of what we see or choose to see each day. The photos I post might be an epic landscape, an animal portrait or just everyday mundane stuff. It really doesn’t matter for I have come to believe in the spirit or energy of all things and places. If we were just to pause, look and appreciate, there is beauty within reach from all around us.
With great blessings, I wish that you will enjoy your stay here and hope that what you find will further your appreciation for life, nature and for this beautiful place we call home—our mother Earth.
