Keeping the eye and mind open and realising that intent overides genres and styles.
On sabbatical from Flickr for three years from June 2010 to September 2013 - gaining much insight while losing contact here.

Optical illusion says:
"Tengtan is a very skilled photographer with a great eye for especially abstract subjects. His photographs are always well composed and instantly recognisable by his creative use of lines and shapes. On top of that, Tengtan is a great contact to have and comments a lot. Visiting his photostream is always an interesting experience!"

"Not only Teng has a great eye for shapes and geometry in a colorful environment. He's also a very kind and loyal flickr friend who always takes the time to check and comment on my stream.
I really appreciate that my friend. Take Care."

"Tengtan's photos are beyond cool. There is a constant theme of looking deep into the mundane things to find brilliant patterns and colors! You really make the sleeping world wake up and shine! Thanks too for all the reciprocity on comments!!! ^_^"

"Tengtan is a photographer whom I am very glad to have met on flickr. I absolutely LOVE the way he sees geometry and pattern in everyday life & makes beautiful pictures out of them. He is also one of the most encouraging people I have had the fortune to see here on flickr.
I'm always curious to see what new work Tengtan has uploaded & it never disappoints."

"I recently ran a neat script that tells you how many times you've faved each of your contacts... Tengtan was #1! His portfolio shows excellence in all facets: colors, repeating patterns, landscapes, macros. Tengtan's shots are always clean and elegant.... Thanks for sharing your artistic work with all of us."

"If you are lucky enough to cross paths with tengtan, you are indeed a fortunate person, for he is tirelessly encouraging to complete amateurs (such as myself) and equally diligent in finding incredible images everywhere he goes. Do yourself a favour and take a leisurely stroll through his photostream and gain a lion's share of creative inspiration."
October 26th, 2007
"Well, what can I say? A lot.
Teng seems to be everywhere, commenting on nearly every photo. A great guy, who will always help.
He's also convinced me that he has a computer chip implanted in his eye to help him line up every line and shape in his photos so perfectly."
