Is there life in photography ?

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 )

There's life even after 60. It's all in your head and your will.
It's wonderful to once again relish and appreciate God's creation, what we take for granted. It's obvious your old love, photography that is, has done much for your body and spirit.
