Sony A9 mirrorless

Inspired by taking beautiful photos that satisfy me, other than keeping it as a memory, you can share it with people, it has become my passion.

Basically from everywhere and everyone who has the same passion. 

How would you describe your aesthetic?
My description of aesthetic is when you can tell your feelings and stories through the ambiance of photography, they’re beautiful based on my perspective.
