All that Glistens this Christmas Season

4 years ago

    Just when you thought my period of giving thanks is over, I keep on finding lists of things to give thanks for. As they say, "It ain't over till the fat lady sings." And I've yet to hear crystal-shattering tones. There's something about the festive season that render me reflective, which is something I love and appreciate, because there are countless things to[...]

Sneaking past the new year

5 years ago

The last you heard of me, it was Christmas. Now we've sailed past the new year, found ourselves midway through January and I've been enjoying my little time off, maybe a little bit too much seeing that I've been reluctant to get back on the horse and into a fierce gallop.   I had a pretty good breather in Bali last week, hence the silence.[...]

A mela.de.gypsie Christmas

5 years ago

And just like that, Christmas 2012 is Christmas Past. But why should we even stop the celebrating? It still feels like Christmas stretches on to even until the New Year comes. I guess when Christmas leftovers start becoming last year's leftovers is when we know is the season for celebration (and excessive guilt-free gorging) should stop.   I've to say I'm pretty proud of my[...]

Look, It’s Snowing!

5 years ago

As much as it can in tropical Singapore. Spoiler alert: It's fake snow (figures). Although I'd have to say that silver confetti falls very prettily.   These were some of the outtakes from the last part of my postcard shoot, taken when I was going for that perfect image. Thought they all looked good together in an animated gif. I am very thankful for a[...]

The end of year is nigh!!!   I usually say that with a heavy lilt of panic in my voice whenever December rolls around each year. However, things seem a little different this time round! All of my heavy backlog has been finished, which frees me to concentrate on personal projects, like figuring out how to use the new film scanner I bought this year[...]

The Mobile Photographer :: Lines, Patterns

5 years ago

The weekend is here!!!   I know it sounds sad, but sometimes I am cooped up in the office so much in the work week that when Saturday rolls around it feels as if I've escaped from prison.   My weekends tend to be packed, I try to squeeze every second's worth of activities out if there isn't a shoot happening. I feel guilty if[...]

SOLILOQUY :: Oh look! A lookbook!

5 years ago

This post is just to show how well and alive-and-kicking I am. It seems like I had been swallowed up by the surface of the earth but the contrary is true, I assure you. What I have been involved in is just alot more work coming from all directions. Travelling has died down and I'm using the time to catch up on all my post-processing.[...]

Lessons in Life and Origami

6 years ago

        I know, I know! It has been quite a while since I blogged, a faraway friend thought this space was either dead or that I haven't been working on any material. Truth is that there have been a couple of exciting ongoing projects which probably might not be wise to speak about at this moment, but believe me when I say[...]

The Mobile Photographer :: Cloud Catching, Skyline Seeking

6 years ago

I have been¬†withholding writing¬†this article for some time, mostly because there has been plenty of debate between various photographers, be it on blogs or forums, on whether Instagram images can truly be considered as "photography". However, I have come to realise why mobile photography has become so relevant to the modern-day photographers. Hence, the release of this article...   Admittedly, I am hugely obsessed with[...]

Chasing Sunsets & Tangible Dreams

6 years ago

Six years ago, the thought of going to Africa was contained to just that, a mere thought. Something mentioned in passing to try and seal the bond of long distance friendships. The occasional conversation starter when people talk of travel - Africa: The continent less traveled, the land of zulu dreams.   I would never have guessed that courteous assent towards the topic would someday[...]
