I use manual lenses adapted to digital around Asia and Austria. My photos are mostly documentary in nature, trying to show humanity and reality as is, and try to avoid multiplying stereotypes. This makes me upload a lot, not just my better photos. One or the other photo will be there which tries to show or utilize particular qualities of a certain lens, could be dof play, contre jour asf. I don't claim to do nor try much to do art but I am happy if one or the other photo is a standout and even could be considered as such.

Travel photography from Asia at its best! Kuuan is an excellent photographer, versatile and talented, and he is a very nice guy, too. Good to have poeple like him on Flickr.

kuuan is just as like a magician of handling film-era manual lenses, creatinhadmirable bokeh! His photographs taken in digital with such classic lenses are simply breathtaking, and I believe I am not the only one who think this way.
