My Most Favorite Photographic Equipment

What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.” ― Karl Lagerfeld I am not a professional photographer or anything like that.

It captures a memory and most important of all, it tells a story. When I grow old and am no longer capable of remembering all the things I have achieved in the past, I want to have these pictures to remind me of the wondrous things I have done, the people I have met along the way and also the glorious sites I have had the privilege of visiting. These are my legacy to the world – a...
