"Awareness - Nice to Meet You" by Chumpol Taksapornchai
It is easy to be preoccupied and ultimately distracted with the number of "Likes, Comments, and Followers" on social media. As I analyze my 2018 posts, I am encouraged to discover people crave direct communication leading to building solid ongoing business and personal relationships.
As I travel, I create collages to tell stories about the people I meet, the places I see, and the products I create and discover. I focus on the extraordinary in the ordinary, and attempt to deliver a fresh, rare, and curious perspective. It is "Through My Lens" I capture my journey.
Join me below as I uncover my top engagements of 2018. While some are expected, others are delightful surprises.
