Hey hey hey!!!

I’m back! I simply missed all of you and the hunger of blogging were unbearable.

So, here we go!

Yesterday I went to join Canon Photomarathon 2010 at Suntec Convention Center, Singapore.

The atmosphere were so exciting!

Check out the crowd here!

I was queuing for almost an hour just to submit my first photo! Madness!

Total attendance is more than 1650 photographers!

Here is my first submission. The first theme is Clarity.

Many of the attendance focused on object of visibility. My approach is on hearing clarity.

So I happened to found this handsome young man, hiding at one corner of the music shop experiencing musical bliss.

His expression was captured perfectly.

Next theme is Faith.

I found this old crucifix lied between antiques. I placed it on the top of these ancient copper coins an shot.

This picture was inspired from Matthew 6:33,

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

The last theme: Charge

Basically I shot these lighted stars in slow shutter speed and move my camera while pressing the trigger.

Not my best effort, 12 hours plus of non-stop photoshoot really drained me.


Here a surprise for all of you,

You saw the most right picture on the Nominees panels?

Yes, that is my second theme: Faith photo! I am shortlisted in Canon Photomarathon 2010 Best Works! I am so happy!

Although in the end I was not selected as the winner (I suspect because I am using Nikon? LOL! Kidding!),

this is a huge encouragement for me to put more effort next time!

Last but not least, I wanna thank you all for the encouraging words to keep me blogging!

I think people can handle 150 to 200 miles a week. But something has to give somewhere.

If she’s a student, how’s she going to study?

She may be at the age of chasing and courtship, and that’s an important form of sport and recreation, too.

Do you agree with Bill? :)

Theme: Energy

A snicker chocolate bar stuffed with alkaline batteries. Plain and simple. Inspired by my experience joining Canon Photomarathon – the fatigue, the chaos and the rush to get the advantage of taking the shot. It was very exhausting. The crowd was huge. Though a bit dragging as participants need to wait for the rest to download before the next theme is given, and there was no strict implementation of submission time – late were still accepted. Wish they abide by their own rule. Anyways, it was fun. And hopefully we can save enough money to buy ourselves a mini-studio (a mobile one) to compete to those who bring theirs together with assistants and models.
