I think that each of us has a hobby to practice away from work, home routine, or maybe just to escape our daily life problems..

For me it’s different…

I’ve loved photography since I was little ..

I used to hold that black camera and take a photo of what I see beautiful in my eyes ..

I took photos of myself, my family, my friends , my stuff, every thing
