Does Silence means Yes, Bill Cosby?

I grew up watching Cliff Huxtable and family regularly. “Tight” but at the same time, crazy bunch. The character Bill Cosby played was the ‘loving’ dad and husband…who wouldn’t ‘admire’that?

Undoubtedly, Cosby was ‘powerful’ among his peers. He was one star that his peers would stop on their track and perhaps shake his hand when they meet him in any gathering. He has enjoyed decades of popularity.

Then women, who supposedly were raped by Cosby started telling their stories. 18 Women. 18! And he is all quiet about the allegations….what does his silence means?

“At some point, his silence becomes almost kind of an admission,” he said. “These are horrible, horrendous allegations.”

Cosby has not commented on the allegations, leaving that to his lawyer.

In a recent statement, Singer said it defies common sense that “so many people would have said nothing, done nothing, and made no reports to law enforcement or asserted civil claims if they thought they had been assaulted over a span of so many years.”

By CNN’s count, at least 18 women have gone public with accusations.

“He owes this country. He owes his fans. He owes the women some kind of statement,” said Jones, who is also an attorney. “I think this level of silence for this long is unfair to everybody.”

Clearly Cosby’s star has gone dark. Performances canceled, university severed their ties with him…etc. If proven all allegations correcttrue, do you think this old man should spend the rest of his life in jail?

If guilty, I vote for Yes. No one is above the law, Dr. Huxtable. And may you ask for forgiveness to those you’ve done wrong. And for your soul.

End of Autumn

End of Autumn is here….so I thought it’s about time to end this long break from blogging.

Is it true that the older the person gets, the faster the time goes for them? If it’s true, then I certainly am one of the old ones as I couldn’t believe how fast my day goes! 24 hours isn’t enough to accomplish all that needed to do.

According to the weather forecast, tomorrow we will be having the first snow here in Holland. And I am not looking forward to it :( Why can’t Autumn just stay? Or better yet, why can’t we have summer the whole year ’round?
IMG_1582I’ll sure miss your gorgeous colours, Autumn!

Magic droplet.

orangefairy

I got some flower this week which I found quite pretty that I had to photograph some of them. Not just photograph but I really had fun composing some playful water droplets on them and not just shoot the flowers alone.
I also used some apps on my iphone that I haven’t used in a long time.

I also used my husband’s gift for me last Christmas, a small mirrorless camera where I can use my lenses on. I can’t compare it with my bigger camera bodies in terms of quality, the latter being better, but I would not say that the mirrorless is bad. But I can see the difference. Only I am quite happy that my husband’s gifted me with this smaller and lighter body which I can carry with me all the time. All the time! That I couldn;t do with my bigger camera bodies, they are really back breaking, literally.

A little bit of HDR ( instagram style )

20140115-150412.jpg

‘Thought I would post something different, one I have never published before on any of my blogs (I think, if I remember it right, lol!) An ‘hdr’ photo! Instagram world is quite forgiving when it comes to definition or ‘hdr’ or ‘bokeh’ or selfie’ (the last, I think, instagram and tweeter are the culprit that’s why it’s on the dictionary, forever! shoot!)

Anyway, I am not good at editing but I do enjoy publishing silly edits like what I’ve done on this shot (during our Thailand vacation last year) the purist in me have fought long and hard to stay away from editing my pictures but eventually gave in as a lot of people on my instagram list are doing it …yeah, I go with the flow now :P Some do edit it quite ‘hard’ you’ll hardly see the subject but I like it lighter, especially doing ‘hdr’ …I don’t like over killing my images.

Well, whatdyathink? Do I have a future in hdr? lol!
