I spend my day doing something useful, and night in my thinking cap.
I love books, I collected them, I like how they look
on the shelf, on the floor, on my table.
I like to draw, it is the way my hand wanders
picking cues from pebbles in my mind.
I take long walks, alone. I think best between steps... my steps. Along the way I snap photos and short takes of videos.
I listen to music at times to leave time markers, aural memory.
I write letters and emails that I never send.
I published poems for one I adore, unbeknown.
I love beauty, I adore smart, I worship kindness.
I multi-tasks, I think multi-tracks.
I procrastinate eating, sleeping.
I hate making or receiving phone calls, I love Visual voice mail.

Above all...
I'll raise my sons to be better than me.

Mo

p.s.
I processed most of my photos, I can't help it...
I am more of a painter than a real photographer.

    "Mo! One of the nicest people I've ever met. A highly skill artist and photographer with a killer smile, Mo's imagery is really something to be savored. I really recommend taking a look as his interesting and inspiring works.
    Take care Mo! Hope to see you again soon!"

    "I remember when I first met Mo. Instantly he became one of my most treasured friends on flickr. I was always delighted with his stunning creative artwork, and he always teased me with his delicious meals. Even though we live miles apart, the friendship still remains. We have gone our different ways with photography, but I always believe that change is a good thing.

    I look forward to seeing you more in the coming year. I wish you wonderful serendipitous moments, my friend. ♥"

    "Both a great designer and artist, Mo makes some of the best captures of the urban environment I have seen, rather annoyingly there's never a bad one.

    He's also made me my very own robot and its on the wall in my study.
    Thanks Mo."

    Kentuckiana (In & Out of Flickr) says:

    "Mo is an exceptional talented photographer who has a special eye in capturing the what we typically see as ordinary scenes and fail to realize the intriguing images they can turn out to be. His rich variety of work is a constant source of inspiration to us here. His street shots are striking and eye catching, something many of us fail to present. A visit to his photostream won't be a disappointment, I can vouch for that. Keep up the great work, Mo! And thanks for being a dear friend"

    "I would call Moriza's work typical 'Indonesian-Amercian school': modern, strong in coulouring and contrasts and he has a very sharp eye for composition and moment. Especially his colouring bares his signature.

    Alway's look forward to new work.
    Mo: jalan terus!"

    "Mo is such a unique artist needless to say. The series of robots were really interesting and so are his paintings. Recognizable and lovely. His photos are also super. The sense of beauty of the angles and the colors are something I don't usually have."

    "Moriza was the first to “favorite” my photos and since then I’ve been introduced to his colorful & captivating world.. Moriza has a talent for wonderfully blending together emotion, art and his unique vision of the world into great photography. His food shots make my mouth water every time and his portraits of Jasper always make me smile."

    "1000 ideas at a time, 1000 works being done at a time, that's a good inkernet friend of mine called Moriza.
    i don't know, but possibly he's a robot. must be.
    over-talented artist, loving father and the most kind human being(?) i ever met, that's Moriza too.
    and be jealous, people of earth, i have his work on my collection!"

    "Ever since I stumbled across Mo's pages I've been inpired by his example to photograph, draw, paint and live more! It's impossible to stop the creativity flowing out of him whether he's taking photos or working on his illustrations and paintings. He somehow even manages to create whilst sitting in a diner or chinese restaurant....and by the look of it, his son is going to be as talented as his father. Oh yeah....and he's a nice guy too that contributes massively to the Flickr community."
