World’s Largest Photo at 26 Giga-pixels!

Until then, enjoy, the world’s largest photo!  (Try clicking on one of the icons and wait for

Book Review – How to Become an Accidental Millionaire!

Recently I’ve read Accidental Millionaire by Gary Fong, a renowned wedding photographer who has made millions through photography.  A great book filled with insights for life and business, highly recommended over all those marketing books by marketers.  Really, it inspires me more if someone who’s successful writes a book than someone who writes about how to be successful and is successful by telling others how to be successful.
