Curious thing about photography

The curious thing about photography is that you will never know what to expect until you lift you camera to your eye and you press the shuter button. Even then you can never expect anything because nowadays all photos are digitally editted and never look the same as the original.

Recently during Chinese New Year while I was in Sitiawan, my parents and Kelvin Choo's parents decided to go the temple for a visit. Actually it is almost a ritual for us to head to the temple at least once during the Chinese New Year season. Just to relfect, to pray for the less fortunate and also to give a little donation. Being me, I decided to bring my camera.

Note the really nice blue sky that day. Unfortunately because of the blue cloudless sky, it was also extremely hot. It was sweating about 5 minutes into walking around. The parents ran to the first shade of tree they could find.

Opening your eyes wide and have having a sense of imagination does help a little like.....

When I shot this the only thing that was running through my mind was that you need a Castle to build a Castle. However in this case it was a Castle to build a temple.

Can't just take non-human subject. Most people will get bored after awhile. So no choice lar. Had to cam whore very slightly only.....


Yes I was feeling very email towards my cousin. Like my colleagues says, got a wide angle? Abuse the heck out of it.

Now this is where the photography because curious again. When walking around with a camera in your hand, your actually see more things. Thing nature leave for you but in this case of course it was man made.

Here is a message to all of us that we should love everything big or small and we should cherish our loved ones because you never know when you might not see them again. 

Next time you are out and about, take your camera out. You never know what you might snap.

Happy Chinese New Year everyone
