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!

Nature’s Anger.

You and I are lucky, yes you who are reading this, and I.

The Philippines, after being hit by the strongest typhoon ever recorded in history is in dire need of help from all over the world. Many lives have been lost, just 2 days aftermath, is estimated would go beyond 10,000. Truly heartbreaking.

Here is an excerpt from cnn.com news :

Tacloban, Philippines (CNN) — No food. No water. Houses and buildings torn to pieces. Bodies scattered on the streets. Hospitals overrun with patients. Medical supplies running out.

As Typhoon Haiyan barreled across the South China Sea on Sunday, getting set to bring more destruction to Vietnam, many Filipinos grappled with devastation on a level they’d never seen before.

The Philippine Red Cross estimated at least 1,200 people were killed by Haiyan, but the full death toll could be significantly higher as officials make their way to remote, nearly inaccessible places pummeled by the storm.

Tacloban Mayor Alfred Romualdez told CNN it is “entirely possible” that 10,000 people may have died in the storm in Leyte province.

“People here were convinced that it looked like a tsunami,” Romualdez told CNN.

“I have not spoken to anyone who has not lost someone, a relative close to them. We are looking for as many as we can,” he said.

BEESY

A lone lily at the hotel’s garden . The bees sure were beesssyyyy!

Time to do some updating now that I’m back from my Thailand vacation.

I’m not actually thrilled to be back home *sigh*

This wet, cold, gray autumn is depressing me, really.

If only I could pack my suitcase and fly back to Asia right now, I’d do it in a hearbeat!
