Here we go again. Life got in the way, and I have been m.i.a. for a while. What have I been up to? First of all, I have started a new job after a year-long break, and I have been travelling for work non-stop since then. I have been wanting to work in the food industry, and I am finally doing it, couldn’t be happier … Continue reading Hello, have we met before?
The theme of today’s assignment is to interpret connect. Any other day, this would be a positive and light-hearted photo project, but today is not like any other day. Even the weather today was dark and dreary. I don’t usually take black and white photos, but I wanted the photo to communicate a darker mood, and I thought a B&W photo would be fitting. This is … Continue reading Connect?
For me, solitude is almost as essential as food or water. I need it to clear my head, find my inner calm – it is like breathing. Lately, I find it at the gym. I am usually the first customer there, and the whole room is mine. No other sounds, no music, no one… Thinking about solitude made me go back to the time I … Continue reading Solitude
So, this is the last day of my nature photo challenge. It has been a pleasant seven-day journey thinking about my travels and looking through photos. My last nature photo is a happy snow day in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. I love the crisp blue sky in New York, whether it is 95F degrees (35C), or 10F (-10C), most of the time it is clear and … Continue reading 7-Day Nature Photo Challenge ~ Day 7
I have experienced moments of bliss a few times in my life during long training runs, mostly in the wee hours of the morning running in the park, in perfect crisp and weightless spring weather. It was a feeling of being completely one with the universe – at that moment I was the universe, the universe was me, and time did not exist. Some call … Continue reading Bliss
I was nominated by a fellow blogger, Quingdom, for a 7-Day Nature Photo Challenge, and I have been posting nature photos from my own stock of photos for a few days. Torch ginger is native to South East Asia, and I have first seen it in the Ginger Garden at Singapore Botanic Gardens. First of all, I would have never thought that gingers would have … Continue reading 7-Day Nature Photo Challenge ~ Day 6
Every time I look at this photo, I feel like I have just taken a deep breath. This little lake and lush greenery are located in Upstate New York, only a few hours away from the city. I took this photo on an August day when I spent the weekend there for my friends’ wedding. The greenery around the lake was almost overwhelming to us coming from … Continue reading Water
I was nominated by a fellow blogger, Quingdom, for a 7-Day Nature Photo Challenge, and I have been posting nature photos from my own stock of photos for a few days. Today’s photo is taken in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam. I am not sure if this photo does justice to majestic Ha Long Bay, but I hope once you see this, you will be curious … Continue reading 7-Day Nature Photo Challenge ~ Day 5
As a part of the Photo101 class I am taking at the Blogging U, I will be posting photos daily for the next two weeks. When I take photos I don’t think about composition, angle, etc., so this will be interesting. Never seriously considered a DSLR, just because I don’t think I will carry around a heavy machine with me too often. I used a point-and-shoot … Continue reading My Street
I was nominated by a fellow blogger, Quingdom, for a 7-Day Nature Photo Challenge, and I will be posting nature photos from my own stock of photos in the next few days.

El Calafate is a town near glacial Lago Argentina, and it is only an hour and a half away from Petito Moreno Glacier in Los … Continue reading 7-Day Nature Photo Challenge ~ Day 4
