Yes, I am a big fan of photography in my spare time. I always travel around to the stunning natural scenery with my camera. I have been in the habit of it for almost 8 years. The main factor is that I can capture the precious moment in my life, such as the graduation ceremony, or the sweet moment with my girlfriend, and also I believe the photography will cultivate my mental development.
If I were to choose between the two, I’ll probably go with taking photos of others because I feel that different people have different characteristic, so the photos will be distinguishing. Whereas, I barely take a selfie because it will make me embarrassed.
Normally, I’ll probably go with the scenery to take photos because I really enjoy the marvellous natural scenery such as the seashore, sunset and twilight, but if I take my son travelling around, I’ll take photos of him to capture his happiness.
I store my photos both in my computer disk and Internet for backup. And besides I have a photography website running for 4 years, keeping all my premium photos there.
Yes, I used to print some photos of my kid to hang them in his room, which can help us memorise the warm moment we had together.
Well, if I were to choose between the two, I’ll probably go with my own photos because they are unique and seeing a lot of comments from friends is really a pleasant thing. Whereas postcards are not as meaningful as photos taken by myself.
