When I take my photos, the battle of life and bread fightig of the living things in life became my main theme. Every living creature has experienced the blessings that nature, has given us in various ways in its own struggle for life. Some fought to feed, some fought to bring home bread. As long as nature exists, this fight will continue and I will continue to watch and document this fighting with my camera.
