Dancing in triumph…

Ah! Finally, the last day of photo 101. I believe I will miss this course, and I am glad that I survived it.

For several reasons, this month has been a hectic one for me and each day was really a case of mind over matter in order to get things done. A lot is left trailing behind and have to be attended to in this month of April.

I totally doff my cap to professional photographers that bring you the fabulous photos that you get to enjoy.

For today’s prompt ‘triumph and contrast’ my mind went to so many things. Music, little beginnings, and closures. For me, triumph comes from satisfaction over little things around me, such as getting my exercise done makes me dance and feel on top of things 🙂


I love Sunsets. They spell beautiful, serenity, closure, triumph and so much more.

Pairing Them Up…

The Photo 101 course is drawing to a close this weekend. Phew! It’s been fun, but hectic too.

Well, today’s theme is to ‘double and rotate’ so I serve you my takes below.



Getting the edges aligned. ..

Today’s photo 101 prompt has been my least favourite so far. Not quite sure why, except that I really don’t like tweaking pictures around and altering them so much, so I had to really search hard for pictures.

I always prefer things looking as natural as possible, except where unavoidable, and I am glad that I didn’t have to manipulate these ones asides from giving them an edge 🙂

Peeking and Clicking…

I honestly can’t claim that I have a fair idea of what I’m doing. In fact, I would be lying if I claimed to know. I am just having fun with today’s assignment since I am out all day with my troop.

According to today’s photo 101 prompt ‘Glass, Squared,’ we are to incorporate glass in today’s image: a window, a mirror, a wine glass, sunglasses or something else. It doesn’t matter what form the glass takes.

So here I go tinkering and peeking in or out.

My Life’s Treasures…personal

Feeling lazy from yesterday’s indulgence, and with the bunnies still hopping around in my tummy, I am so thankful that I don’t have to traipse off looking for precise photo shoots this morning.

The photo 101 prompt asking us to show our treasure and close up, makes it a bit easy today. I am just going to clip on some photos of my treasures in here.

They are absolutely the very best blessings that life brought me 🙂

There is nothing else in the entire Universe, that I can translate into what these beautiful one’s mean to me.

Thank you very much. Now back to some snooze. Life is a bit on the slow lane 😉

Rolling fields and Sandy banks…

Today’s Photo 101 theme is landscape and cropping where nature is our main subject, or a sweeping panorama of an entire city, town or industrial area.

A few shots were taken during this morning’s walk-about and many are from the previous week.


Tiny and Tall…

So, I will just cut to the chase of the matter and attach my photos for today’s photo 101 theme ‘scale and observation.’

I am so totally knackered and my brain is running at half tank from insufficient snooze.

Watching people is totally a favourite sport, so it’s no hardship taking photos of their movement.

I can actually sit and count how many men who strolled past in a suit, or tie, or whatever catches my fancy at that point in time. It’s total fun I tell you and if your eyes are keen enough sometimes, you are rewarded with something to smile about.

I was out all day and there’s no time to simulate night movement, so between the gym, school, grabbing a bite at the mall, I think I managed to get some blurry movement shots for today’s Photo 101 theme ‘moment and motion.’

Bend It, Straighten It, Twist It…

I totally curbed my zeal in going photo bombing with today’s photo 101 theme ‘Architecture and Monochrome’ in  a city that is an architectural delight.

Buildings sprout like mushroom in this place and each with it’s loveliness in intricacy or even simplicity.

The sprinkling weather of today, curbed my clicky fingers delight, so, I have a mix of new and old.

Some were tweaked in black and white for comparison and in as much as I like both, I think I will naturally gravitate to the bright colours like a happy butterfly 🙂

Finding Bright Pops…

Finding pop was not as easy as I anticipated. Hmm! The Photo 101 themes are getting tricky.

I had to look in-house and out-house for any relatively satisfying pop.

My meandering made it starkly obvious that we love rich, vibrant textures here and the shinier, the more attractive it seems.

Anyway, I managed to scrounge for a few popping items *at least in my eyes*.
