‘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!

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!

My husband and I went to the hospital for our shots. I was given Hepatitis A vaccine, and he was too.┬áIt was my first time to get a shot on my shoulder, or rather, my last shot was perhaps 4 decades ago so I was a bit ‘nervous’ as to how it would feel getting it. Oh boy, did I find out how, ouch!!

This was given because we will be traveling to Asia and a good prevention is needed. Didi you know anything about hepa A prevention? If not, do read on..this is from Wikipedia

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention the following people should be vaccinated: all children over one year of age, people whose sexual activity puts them at risk, people with chronic liver disease, people who are being treated with clotting factor concentrates, people working within close proximity to the virus, and people who are living in communities where an outbreak is present. Hepatitis A is the most common vaccine-preventable virus acquired during travel,so people travelling to places where the virus is common like the Indian Subcontinent, Africa, Central America, South America, the far East, and Eastern Europe should also be vaccinated.
