My Photo Journal Blog: My Photo Journey

This gallery serves to inspire you to look at photography in a different perspective; through my eyes. In every photo you will find a short personal interpretation of the image. I wish to invite you to join in and share your views and thoughts, which will be a valuable learning tool in our photography journey. Please also visit :


           
The Untold Stories              Life As Such     
Being Different
Being Different
I have mixed feelings when looking at this image. A combination of joy as I look at the lady staring at my direction with a coming smile, the boy sitting dazed in deep thoughts, while the girl looks dazzled. What draws me to the shot most is the little girl having pale almost colorless skin and brown hair. A very disturbing yet eye catching image as she doesn't fit in with the rest of the people beacuse of her appearance.
One Lazy Afternoon.... with Dino
One Lazy Afternoon.... with Dino
It's always fun to see what others do at the park. In this shot, the man is seen lying sleeping on the stone pavement while his wife sits besides him carrying their son who is also half asleep. Behind him sits a comical looking Dino peeping to say hello.
Reading
Reading
The first thing that probably draws you to this shot are the flowers in the big basket on the bicycle. But if you look carefully at the title of this image - it says - Reading. Why? At the far right hand bottom corner, you can see a man (the peddler) reading the newspaper. The least of the thing that seemed not obvious can sometimes be the highlight of the shot.
Burning Of Incense
Burning Of Incense
Nowadays when I go to temples, be it Buddhist or even a Hindu temple not for worship purposes but to capture images of people praying, the sculptor carvings of the Gods or even the burning of incense sticks. This image reminded me of Phil Douglis' shot - Chanting, Longshan Temple, Taipei, Taiwan, 2006 . His emphasise on the image was not so much of the person holding the incense sticks but the declaration of human values ie. faith and fevor. As I reflect again on this shot taken last weekend, I realised that it's more than a shot of a person holdling burning incense sticks, it's the act and motive behind it.
Come & Buy My Bag
Come & Buy My Bag
I like the expression on the woman's face as she attempts to sell her piece of embroidery handbag. The twinkle in her eyes obviously indicated that she was delighted to have her face taken and at the same time took the opportunity to promote the sale of her goods. The little girl at the corner as an observer had a little smile on her face as she looks at the lady holding the bag and posing for that shot. The twinkling eyes are the highlight that makes this shot special.
On The Scooter
On The Scooter
There are many motorcycles in the streets of Hanoi, Vietnam. You see them everywhere. Even without wearing their safety helmets. This shot is slightly different from the usual point and shoot as it's supposed to be a `panning shot'. For more panning shots, please click here.
Lines Of Pretty Lanterns
Lines Of Pretty Lanterns
In my photography journey, I constantly look for unusual subjects to take. In particular those with vibrant colours and also which looks a bit abstract. I purposely visited the temple during the Chinese New Year to shoot the hanging lanterns. It was indeed lovely to see lines of lanterns all over the place and I couldn't resist this shot.
The Young Fisherman
The Young Fisherman
It's a rare opportunity to see a fisherman pulling in the net and a chance of a lifetime for a city kid to experience this act. It put a smile on my face to see this little boy trying to help pulling in the net to shore and it's obvious that his grandpa had to take a shot of him doing that!
Romantic Moment To Cherish
Romantic Moment To Cherish
This is another shot taken at Phnom Bakheng, Cambodia. I am not an expert in taking sunrise/sunset shots but it's always a nice feeling to be able to capture a scene or even producing a reasonably good picture to admire and keep. I quite like this one for the sun was shot and captured in between the woman and the man, making the entire scene a romantic one. I can imagine what both of them were thinking, being in love and at the same time admiring the beautiful sunset. Wow, what a memorable occasion! I am done with my Cambodia travel blog. At last I can sit back and relax, enjoy looking at the pictures. I hope you too have an enjoyable time browsing through this gallery. Thanks once more for your support, it's been a great challenge putting up those pictures and illustrating everyone of them! Click here for the links - 'Trekking Cambodia'
