So, its been two weeks since I got involved with my old love again -- photography , that is.Its been two glorious weeks of occupying myself with activities which I could actually do on my own - just like golf eh ? heheheh.
I surprise myself indeed - not with my skill ( or the lack of it ) as a photographer , but with my determination to seriously go into it. Other than the trips that I made ( and future as well), I am amazed that I would stubbornly do something until I am truly satisfied with it. Yesterday I walked two kilometers on my own ,just looking for subjects to photograph..I would never have done that much exercise -- not now anyway , still , here I am ! This weekend proves that.
I also surprised myself that I could eye such details. I found that I appreciate more creation of nature and become more observant and sensitive to its 'artistic' creation. There's so much to see. Just now , I was watching a programme on Taiwan and one of its off-shore islands. The sea, the cliff, the stone houses, the steep steps , the winding pavement that leads to the village on the cliff---all these I noticed as if they had been framed in my view finder !
Even shadows and hanging branches become meaningful . For God's sake - its only two weeks. Maybe my characteristic of going all out on something I love ! ...maybe. Photography has given me life in its own peculiar way....
hmmm... the night shots I did last night were rubbish. Tonight..... must correct them......why not ! ( see what I mean )
