Seeing The World Through the Camera Lens

” On the Road Again “
Time is precious & often, taken for granted. Capturing the split second moments. To many of us, photography is portrayed as a form of art to capture & then frame the beautiful yet fleeting moments of life. How frequent is it that we allow those random moments to pass by us, without actually cherishing how charming those moments can be. Do we even remember the reason why we roared into laughter, when out with friends? Or the emotions we felt upon graduation? Im very much guilty of that. A picture says a Thousand Words. To look back at the pictures, reminisce the good/bad old days and re-live those memories once more. Once in awhile, I find myself looking through my blog/pic folder & smiling at myself ( as idiotic as it might sounds ) as I scan through the pics. As Mandarina puts it, ” A moment in time rendered eternal by just one click is the ultimate reward of photography. ” Very well-said, indeed.
This photography exhibition showcased the picturesque works of avid, local travellers who had embarked on adventures to off-the-beaten-track places ( Uzbekistan, Iran, Nepal, Russia) and captured the moments of their journey in still images. The series of photographic installation were truly candid and clearly reflected the culture & attitudes of the people living in those different countries. Avoiding the usual tourist traps, those pics depicted the lifestyles that these people lead & made us, the audience, see the globe through camera lens. True indeed, photography has enabled them to freeze time and document their colourful & vibrant experiences. An exhibition that not only opened my eyes to global activities, but also one that inspires me to develop a deeper interest in photography.
Putting the camera into use : Nature
Pictures taken on the way back home, from work. To take time out, walk a longer distance from the bus-stop ( my daily form of exercise, lol ) & enjoy the flora & greenery in my neighbourhood.
Archie, My Love.
The bundle of joy that stares through the window as I bid farewell to him every morning. The little boy that rushes to the door whenever the door bell rings and wags his tail, in his anticipation to greet me each evening. Coming home to Archie never fails to give me a much appreciated respite from an exhausting & draining day at work. =)
( pics credit to MK )
I call the following pics ” MK’s masterpieces”. It’s usually a challenge to take clear pics of Archie as he seems to have an endless flow of energy so I have to give MK extra credits for his successful attempt. I must say that these are some excellent pics of Archie. =) Melts our hearts with those irresistible puppy doe-eyed look. The expressive look in its eyes … those special moments captured on film, for life.
Putting the camera into use AGAIN : for vanity sake !
