The Pool of Hope

I know it’s not easy, not easy at all. It’s not easy to start something, specially when you are more like a visitor than the creator.

When I started this blog I guess it’s about 4 months back, I was overly excited and didn’t think much how to start and what to write. Let’s just say I was trying to make a way to represent my photographs, trying to implement some original ideas. (Guess, it’s not that original 🙂 ) I always used to browse photo blogger’s post and it’s was an awesome experience with so much of inspiration. Not only Word Press bloggers but also outside bloggers.

For a long time I am uploading my photographs to various websites like Flickr, 500px I was happy but not satisfied. So I though of doing something different, instead of creating a Facebook fan page e.g. “XXX Photography”, I decided to start blogging.

I am happy I am still doing it, and hopefully I will be able to take this blog to a different level. This reminds of a line from a very popular movie.

I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.

The Pool

I took this photo couple of months back using my Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 lens wide open (No filter). The subject is not that interesting, however the color of the photo I found to be eye catching. While it was dusk, the sun was ready to set and the beautiful orange light was reflecting on the pool from the backside of the high rise building.

I know this blog is far from perfect. But I believe in “Success is a journey and not a destination” and let’s make this journey beautiful.

Thanks for dropping by.


100 Strangers : Stranger No. 2

Stranger No. 2

My Stranger no. 2 is Paaney. She is from Manila and she was selling fruits in the open market of Quiapo. When I asked her for a photo, she agreed immediately. I took this photo, while walking inside the market and looking for my next stranger.

100 Strangers Project Damn! This is getting tough day by day. I used my newly purchased Tokina 11-16mm for this photo. Yes I know this might not be the right lens for the portrait photography but I have 1 camera body only and sometimes it’s pretty difficult to change the lens in the middle of the open market. I liked the framing of this photo. Hope you will like it too.
