This is my little 3 year old cousin, Celena. I usually don’t like kids and they don’t like me, but Celena is in a whole different spectrum! At birth Celena was diagnosed with Hirschsprung’s disease and Intestinal atresia. (Which simply means that parts of her small and large intestine don’t function properly). In brief, she’s been through / going through things no child should ever go through at that age, and despite all that she always manages to smile and laugh and play and BE HAPPY! You can’t help being happy around her. knowing that she’s just an innocent child and that she’s come this far, to me as a person, makes me appropriate the fact that it doesn’t matter how old you are or what you are going through, things are going to get better because you’re working towards making them better. Anyway, thought it would be suitable to share this, the photo speaks for it self. I Love this kid so much, and she’s the most loving and cutest kid ever! She’s my Hero.
This is Max the doggy dog! We’ve had him for about 3 years now, and I must say that I don’t remember how life was like before him AND that I can’t imagine how life will be like after him. I raised him, and we’ve, regardless of the different species barrier, have been through a lot of things together. That will sound weird to a NON-pet owner, but if you ever get any sort of pet you will understand. He’s the fourth member of our family! :3
😀 I can’t help myself he looks soo cute!!
Who am I? well…. that is a very simple question with a very complected answer. Honestly, I don’t know for sure. I do have a solid idea of who I might be… I’m a person. With interests, thoughts and feelings. And the rest is just noise and words.
I was never good with words and I somehow always end up in these situations where I’m just flopping my arms all over the place trying to explain certain things.
This is Extreme Close up. I got a little description from wiki -> “Extreme close up focuses the audience’s attention on a particular detail. It has the effect of intensifying and concentrating an idea, emotion or atmosphere.” That is why I took these for “It’s ALL about Perspective”. I think that details are VERY important and that no detail should go unnoticed. If you haven’t guessed it yet, that an “a” in my handwriting. Usually, when we write we don’t notice how the ink is absorbed by the paper. or how the paper, despite it seeming smooth, it’s actually, at some point, textured.
I’m an extreme Entomophobic but I put my life in danger to take this great photo (if I may say so myself). I summed up a lot of courage to get close to that crimson colored insect. I’m proud of myself 🙂
To be honest, I forgot about this category :S BUT I remembered just in time! This is the most memorable sunrises out of all the rest these past few weeks.
I was trying to take a photo of the sunset the other day and this is what popped up on my screen! Naturally, as a person that takes pictures of everything and anything, I panic big time when this happens. Missed out on a great sunset photo 😦
Yes! This Camera is yummy to me. There’s this thing that we all have towards objects. Don’t try to deny it! WE ALL HAVE IT. Whether it’s cars. books, boats, CDs, anything. We all have this attraction. I didn’t wanna go to far and say that they turn us ON but I have to… In the wise words of a friend ” Cameras turn me on…” And there you have it!
I literally jumped out of my seat when our instructor told us about our next “challenge” :p
→ A PHOTO SCAVENGER HUNT! YUPPIE! 😀 I started hyperventilating and sweating (TMI) and I immediately started to think of ideas.
Ms. Dima gave us 7 categories (or maybe more but I distinctly remember 7…) :
- It’s all about perspective
- Photo of the day
- Who am I?
One of the many reasons I was excited about this assignment is: I wanted to try out new techniques and ideas. Which I did!! 😄 I tired out extreme close up ( that’s when you turn the lens in the opposite way, so that the part that’s supposed to be mounted to the body is exposed… It was risky business since some dust can get inside the camera). It was a new concept for me, I’m usually used to taking photographs of what’s right in front of me (occasionally thinking of creative perspectives) … documenting moments. This time I actually had to “THINK” of what the picture had to be. Nonetheless, it was interesting.
Anyway! Here are the Photos I selected 🙂
(I alternated between Camera and iPhone)
