    Pro or not pro or amateur or novice or whatever, I will only bother talking if anyone discusses about food. Heh.

    Talking about cameras or photography with strangers can drive me nuts sometimes. Imagine if everyone here actually met up for an outing, everyone will still be talking about cameras, the ooohs and aaahhs...who is a pro who's not blah blah plus all the flattering nonsense. The only good 'organised' photo outing to me is a well planned with itenery to go along and someone who will drive or 'chair' the outing. Rather than meeting up with no real purpose.

    Anyway, you cant expect everyone out there who's holding a camera to be really really nice to you, a stranger, someone who appeared out of nowhere. I would feel scared if someone came up to me and ask if I am a pro or not. They are a lot of people out there who earns a living by taking photos. Do give them a break. No offence. Just my views. Cheers to all.

    yes, i will only respond if the stranger ask me if i have eaten, taken a break, need a drink...

    if he ask what camera i use, i will respond with so sorry, not so sure, just doing my job, got any good shots yet?

    I believe in the mad pursuit of all things good, most of us had forgotten a basic principle of "stay low, stay humble, stay quiet."

    We nudge in front to grab a shot and fire off as many shots as possible. Unfortunately, we forgot the fact that there are similar ppl back there who are watching or who wants to get the same shot. We all forget and plant our butt or feet firmly there, guarding it like a Grizzly Bear guarding its spoil of honey, refusing to give up that 'sweet spot' for the benefit of others as well.

    Just simply looking back, lowering your position a little and giving up the sweet spot after u're done wun do much harm or take off a chunk off ur flesh. You can own the best and greatest. But the best photographic equipment is no match for the human eye and brain which it soughts to mimic.
