Monkeys, River Safari, SingaporeMonkeys, River Safari, Singapore. One of the photo I take on Monkeys, while visit River Safari, next to Singapore Zoo and Night Safari.

I personal like the style of the image feel and mood generated. As now I keep looking for way take photo beyond digital photography. Digital is clear, but some time old fashion photography look great, in particular for the emotional feeling and mood generated.

Few style in explore, and try to build up personal style on the shoot.

Look forward.
