Welcome to "Different Perspectives, One Humanity", and thanks to everyone for stopping by. I hope this blog will be a place where I can share with you images, thoughts, ideas and comments concerning the three things I am most passionate about: photography, humanitarian issues and the environment.

Through my life's journey, I have come to realize that my true purpose and joy in life does not come from material gains, and instead, from each small gesture of compassion and assistance I can offer to others, and the ripple effect it may produce. If we stop to think about it, we all share the same planet and use the same air -- humans, animals and plants. Each breath another being exhales may be one I ultimately inhale. Thus, although we all have unique souls and perspectives, we are part of one collective humanity. This gives perspective to the need to respect and help all life -- without conditions or expectations. Although none of us are capable of helping everyone; all of us can give aid to someone, and it is much better to do a little, than nothing at all. If we all do our part, no matter how small, we can make a difference. Margaret Mead said it best: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has."

As a photographer, I have chosen to contribute in two ways. Firstly, by capturing scenes of life from my perspective that hopefully you will find beautiful, inspirational, or thought provoking. Secondly, by doing my part to help humanity and our planet through the donation of 50% of all proceeds from my image downloads and print sales to CARE International (CARE) and World Wildlife Fund (WWF). May what you see touch you in a positive manner and inspire you.

I am a freelance photographer based in Vancouver. I have a passion for nature, abstracts, and finding beauty in everyday life. My devotion to the environment led to my fascination for capturing the abstract beauty of nature, and its many textures, patterns, layers and colours. My hope is to help focus people's attention on the dazzling array of mother nature's extraordinary creations.
I also love to photograph the dynamics of people's interactions with the world's surroundings, including its ancient relics and nature's attempts to reclaim them. Thus cultural and evironmental themes also fascinate me.

If you would like to see more of my work, visit my website at: www.singularscenes.com or have a look at some featured galleries below:

As I am very committed to environmental and humanitarian causes, and am a firm believer in everyone doing their part to help humanity and our planet, 30% of all proceeds from my print sales are donated to CARE International (CARE) and World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

“Remember to be gentle with yourself and others. We are all children of chance and none can say why some fields will blossom while others lay brown beneath the August sun. Care for those around you. Look past your differences. Their dreams are no less than yours, their choices no more easily made. And give, give in any way you can, of whatever you possess. To give is to love. To withhold is to wither. Care less for your harvest than for how it is shared and your life will have meaning and your heart will have peace.” ~Kent Nerburn

Abundant Harvest
