Weekly Picks 17/08/2016


I haven’t posted any new pictures since last week. That’s because I was playing around with my recently installed Adobe Lightroom.

Here’s a few final products. I focused on black and white and selective colors. I hope you’ll enjoy them.

Pictures: Recycled: Abstract

Just fooling around with Photoshop.

I take a lot of meaningless pictures while practicing photography or just being bored. Instead of them collecting digital dust or getting erased (which I never do), I thought why not take those shots and merge them into abstract-like pictures.

I’m not a pro at Photoshop but I experimented on my own for years while trying to create my own album covers back when I used to write rap songs, only for myself though.(maybe someday I’ll share the instrumentals and lyrics but I’m not confident enough in my singing! >_< )

Anyways, I know enough of Photoshop to transform a dull and plain picture into something worth seeing.

They are few but they took me a while to finish. I hope you’ll like them.

These are the source pictures.

’til the next batch! ^_^

Daily Picks 05/05/2016


I had no idea the web was actually shot until I viewed the picture on the laptop.


My Shadow

that’s all you’ll get of me.


Sky Waves Crashing, too. 

Have you seen that darker shade of blue sky followed by a line of clouds? It looks like a mirrored image of the sea to me.


Water Source



Liquid and Solid [Haiku]

walking in the sand

while waves crash on mossy rocks –

soft collisions



Ant on a Leaf


The walk down the beach made me forget the tiredness of what preceded it.

I hope you enjoyed today’s Picks and the post. ^_^

Taking Pictures N°001

I gotta tell you! I’m no photographer! I just like taking pictures, that’s all. 🙂

I do have a lot of ideas though. The problem is, so many things get in the way, figuratively and literally. So I end up taking nature pictures and occasionally some objects.

I use a hand-me-down Panasonic DMC FZ1 (busted flash – no good indoor or night pictures) from my brother. You probably think this is a joke. smartphones have better quality!

Well, I love my camera and I wouldn’t change it no matter what! It’s perfect for outdoor captures. Besides,  that camera is like a friend! Call me sentimental, I don’t care. >_<

To be honest, I’m not knowledgeable about photography techniques or anything technical so I always disregard that and go straight to the idea. I believe if you have good ideas, you can take great pictures even with a handicapped camera. I know, with techniques, one can take even greater pics! but like I said, I’m not a photographer so I’m content with the pictures I take. 🙂

I do struggle with quality (for some pics I had to edit them a bit) but I enjoy taking pictures regardless. Here’s a batch of various shots and I hope you enjoy them as well.
