Being a serious photography hobbyist, I try learn the most about my camera, striving for improvement all the while.
Corporate world often takes the toll on your life. I believe there is nothing better than having a balanced life, and to this effect, photography plays a vital role. Trips in nature, hours spent in gardens, waiting for sunsets, observing people from the crowd become a habit.
I seriously believe that dedicated persons come with a package. You work hard, strive and give your all, but definitely require the odd time off to spend non work related activities, be it alone, with relatives or friends.
There is only one religion: love!
