Dear friends and visitors ...Thanks for visiting!

I am grateful for your kind testimonials.

 

I have finally found a balance between photographing life and living it,

 

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the places and moments that take our breath away.

Photography is a hobby.

Spending time on Flickr is an essential part of my day now. I enjoy viewing and appreciating pictures posted on flickr and also appreciate your feedback on my pictures.

If you write a testimonial about me , I write one about your photostream.

I'm always exploring and experimenting with new ways to bend light. So when my subjects and styles vary ... well, that's just me playing with my favorite toy

 

" A picture is the expression of an impression. If the beautiful were not in us, how would we ever recognize it?"

-Ernst Haas

  

"To take photographs is to hold one's breath when all faculties converge in the face of fleeing reality. It is at that moment that mastering an image becomes a physical and intellectual joy."

Henri Cartier-Bresson

1908-2004

 

My ambition is to become 'interesting' if only for a day, ha ha!

During the months: October to February if you happen to visit my Butterfly Magic Exhibit in Tucson, Arizona USA,

you can use my "free" guest house (2 blocks from my exhibit). I also have bikes to get there.

I want to do this because I want to turn the word "kindness"

into action.

Khasahn, I added you as a contact without really knowing you at all. You seemed to be interested in the same areas of photography as me, especially flowers and butterflies. Now I learn that you are North Vietnamese, love Thich Nhat Hanh, and your favorite food is Pho. I have lived in South Vietnam for 3 yrs as a civilian working for the State Department and have a Vietnamese wife and currently have several Vietnamese immigrants living with me. I visited North Vietnam for the lst time last year. Many of your beautiful photographs of VN remind me of my times there. Maybe lives ago we were linked. Khasahn is a remarkable and an inspiring photographer. With a simple snapshot he conveys so much. A very kind man with a Buddha's touch and spirit. Long life to you, my friend.

I have been a contact long enough to know that I am always going to be surprised and pleased by your photographs. I have not read your profile until viewing some of the photos of your activities outside the world of butterflies. After getting to know you a bit through your photos and intentionally not reading your profile I finally did read it to learn that you are even more interesting than I thought. You are one of those rare persons that I say to myself, "I would love to meet that guy." I can only say thanks for being a kind, generous, person with great curiosity and talent. Thank you for sharing your life with us all through your pictures. You are indeed a person I would love to meet. Maybe someday it will happen. Stranger things do happen in this wonderful world we live in.

Thank you David for your lovely testimonial. It has been my pleasure to begin to help at the Tucson Botanical Gardens Butterfly Magic exibit. Since I retired earlier this year, I decided to became a butterfly volunteer and was lucky to make your acquaintance. You have already taught me much about butterfly care and I am enjoying learning new things. You encourage the best side of me. After reading some of the many testimonials for you I realize that you are a very special person, sharing and caring is a wonderful trait. Thanks for being you.

Although khasan shoots good photos of any sort, those that more surprise to me and I admire are his macros of flowers and insects, so full of color and details. Contemplating them I always learn something new, and I feel better.

Trong các quan hệ tự nhiên của xã hội, bất chợt có ai đó trở thành thân quen về vấn đề nào đó cùng quan tâm, cho dù chưa bao giờ tiếp xúc trực tiếp, David Kha là một người như thế! Tôi yêu thích cách miêu tả về thiên nhiên, cuộc sống qua các bức ảnh trên Flickr bên cạnh cách thể hiện cảm xúc và hiểu biết sâu sắc về những bức ảnh đó. Qua đó tôi đã học được nhiều điều và thật sự vinh hạnh được trao đổi với một người bạn như "khasan" Your shots bring such wonder of beauty about nature and life. Moreover, your description for each of these pictures is very thoughtful and sensitive, making it more real than just an image. It is such a joy to be able to do more than "see." I can tell and share your passion for photography, nature and life. I am very honored to get to know someone like you. Sincerely, Thân ái! Gia-Hợp

I want to add my appreciation to the list of other testimonials you have here, David... I see a person who devotes much of his time to encourage others, to teach others to see the beauty around them in the natural world, a man who stimulates the active minds of children into good things in life, encourages children to love to learn. What a treasure! That represents the true riches in life, not what material goods we can accumulate but rather how many lives you affect in a positive way for years to come!
