I remember in form 2 (that's equivalent to 8th grade or year 8 or whatever you call it), I used to facebook chat with my English teacher late at night and talk about things what I thought were deep like Coldplay and "photography". I'd make a tumblr and post my photos but it didn't feel right. So I made a flickr and I've had it since. My English teachers were my homies, I love them to death and I figured I wouldn't mind being an English teacher when I grow up IF and ONLY IF I have no other back up plans left. I just don't look forward to teaching kids because they can be a pain in the ass, like, all the time. Also, not saying I would be qualified to teach English but there are always hidden private schools around who take in anyone, right?
I was 14 and it was toward the end of my emo phase that I happen to own a digital Sony point and shoot camera (which I still use). It was pink and I was disappointed in myself for owning something in that colour but my mum somehow convinced me to get it, and I dropped it on the floor by accident the first day I bought it, as I do with all the things I own.
I present to you, photos I took with my point and shoot circa 2008 - 2010.
|My first 'proper' photo. Taken in the morning at Tasik during a hike with my mother.|
|Because a macro shot is necessary for anyone who owns any kind of camera.|
|On a bus, during my cousin's wedding. Taken on a Friday.|
|My least favourite shot, but I had to throw in one of these long exposure thingies OBVIOUSLY.|
|Another macro shot. This was at my grandma's front lawn after I went swimming with my aunty. It was a warm, sunny Sunday morning and I had the smell of chlorine in my hair.|
|And another macro shot, damn I was on a roll. This was a surprise birthday cake for my grandma's 72nd birthday. |
|To date, this is also my favourite photo. This is the view from our balcony. Not edited at all (none of my pictures are.. Except for the first 2).|
PS: I did not make up the captions, I genuinely remember when they were taken and why I had taken them and how I felt when I took (most) of them.
