I missed this Weekly Photo Challenge having my last entry over a year ago.
The following are some of my shots which I think fulfills this week’s challenge. Hope you like them
I came there with my family last week for a weekday getaway. The kids had no classes due to Ramadan holiday.
Pardon my photos as I am still learning the Lightroom process on my Mac.
I finally managed to process few photos from my hard drive and wish to share them here.
I hope to be able to come back here again during the summer.
The sanctuary also offers their signature spa/massage and delicious food that I really loved.
I can’t believe it’s already been a year since my last post. I won’t be making detailed excuses… let’s just say I’ve been busy hehe
My new job assignment has really taken much of my time, I miss the easy life during my tenure in Vietnam.
Anyway, I just got back here in the Southern hemisphere last Sunday, 20th October 2013. The seminar that I was supposed to attend was postponed so I am now sitting at my hotel room doing nothing. This is a good opportunity to fiddle with my new MacBook Air that my wife got me as advanced birthday present for my 4th decade
I have lots of stock photos which I hope to be able to share here so do stay tuned.
I need to process the raw photos first and I think the first step is to install Lightroom, and here it is…
I haven’t had a chance to blog lately due to hectic workload on my new assignment.
But this week’s Photo Challenge is one of my favorite photography theme. I just can’t let it pass so I had to find a few minutes out of my busy schedule to share some of my photos. I hereby humbly share my amateur silhouette shots.
This is what the challenge says: SILHOUETTE. The proper definition of a silhouette is “the outline of a body viewed as circumscribing a mass.” In photography, often we achieve that effect by putting light behind the object whose silhouette we want to capture, effectively darkening out the features of the subject instead of highlighting them.
Do you reckon I was able to get the theme right? Please let me know… Cheers
The sun finally shone yesterday and I had a chance to go for a photowalk along the busy streets of Rio de Janeiro. Street photography is challenging particularly when shooting strangers because you will not know how they will react. Being discreet is one of the technique from what I read. Therefore, I set my 75-300 Minolta zoom lens on my camera and here are some of the candid snapshots I had.
I took this shot of these guys waiting along the pedestrian lane at the junction of the shopping center.
This next one is along the canal crossing where people use the paddle boat to access the other side of the estuary to the beach front.
Then I spotted this teenagers kissing goodbye just before the boy embarked on the paddle boat.
After crossing the estuary, I headed towards the beach front. It was empty since it was windy and the waves was rather big. All I saw are these guys having a good laugh while taking each other’s photos.
Here’s the bus that goes towards the Copacabana
There is also a biking trail besides the main avenue
There are some benches along the sidewalk and I sat on one of them to discreetly shoot these strangers.
Only the birds I think will not mind me taking their photo so I was able to aim properly
I was also able to take some view along the beach and I will try to share them soon so stay tuned. Thanks for dropping by and I hope you liked my amateur shots. Cheers!
I arrived here in Rio de Janeiro last night. I was imagining the place to be warm and sunny with the beaches filled with people. However, over a day had gone by but I haven’t seen the sun yet! I am currently staying at Transamerica Hotel which is just across the Copacabana Beach. It’s a shame that I can’t even walk towards the beach because it’s chilly cold here and windy with occasional rain showers. Anyway, I’d like to share some of the shots I have had so far. The following photos were taken from the terrace of my hotel room.
In the morning
Same view taken after sunset… although I have not actually seen the sun at all
I’m hoping that the sun will finally shine tomorrow and perhaps I will be able to go around. Stay tuned for some snapshots I’ll share here soon! Cheers
