    Hi mates!

    I'm glad that my new and official website is up and running and it took me awhile before I grow some balls to create one, but thanks to Gary Ayala, he helped me open it up and if you have time, please do visit the site and let me know what you think :)

    It is a work in progress, and will be updated with my future works and series (I have a couple of upcoming series to be put up)

    Have a good day ahead! :biggrin:


    Big thanks again to Gary Ayala, my mentor and a good friend

    Wow Adubo, really impressive!

    With most street sites I find little originality but somehow your pictures manage to really take me there - quite engaging, quite powerful.

    What is happening in the scene with braced arms?

    Pheaukus,

    Thanks mate! I appreciate it. I try to be "in" it, and catch them from a personal POV


    They're kids, having a "seminar"/art workshop, and to be able to trust their peers/strangers alike, they have to get to a pedistal about 4ft high and fall backwards with eyes closed and trust them that they'll catch you (and no, the one falling doesnt know that she'll be caught by his/her peers)

    Adu, what I especially like about your page is that there's also color stuff - what we (maybe too) rarely see on the street thread.

    Wow, Adu. Thanks for showing me that I don't need a website for my own photos. I need to get a LOT better first. Some amazing shots you have there. You "see" far more than I would expect from someone your age. Keep up the great work.....and I'd also like to thank Gary for nurturing this talent along.

    Luke,

    Thank you very much! I think a website is something that can help us grow. You can have it if you want it. You can only be the judge of yourself. What goes into your site/photography is you. For me, the site reminds me of how lucky i have been being mentored by great photographers that i look up to (Gary Ayala, and Tony Remington are two of the most influential), and how i should never stop Learning. How i should always look for ways to influence others of change and and education.



    I try to have fun a long the way, and photography has given me back more than what i expected. No need to be famous and rich nor awarded, i'm just an average joe who have always thought art can change a lot of things, and i hope mine does
