Photo Essay 1 (Portraits):

So I am a closet photographer… I don’t consider myself professional or even at the level of a serious hobbyist, but I do like to take photos. I have been looking through my collection and figured it was time to share some of them. I guess the best way to do this will be trying to put them into some kind of logical group.

So today I was going to start with people but that was still too broad so I will break it down further into portraits. Without further ado, here are some of the portraits I have captured of people I have met along the road of life in China.
