Nice to meet you everyone! I’m ‘wai’.
Mostly, my subject is Landscape, Street scene
and Snapshot during a journey.

My artist name ‘wai’ comes from my initials ‘Y’ and it’s also has meaning Water in Hawaiian language. Why Hawaii? Just because Hawaii is a my second home. (I lived in Oahu for a year.)
Also, water is essential for life. So, Camera is.
Q2. What motivated you to take the photos?
Q3. What is your subject? and Why?

Various element, something like Atmosphere, Wind, Season comes together in a moment. It won’t never ever come back. I desire to cut a piece of the moment.

One day, I wanted to take the photos of ocean, and I had spent a day from 7 am to 5 pm! I just kept pressing the camera shutter, desperately.

Q5. Is there anything message through by your pics?
Well, Answer could be more than one. It may be in abstract way to say, though.
