Apparently my external hard disc came back to life. Managed to save and transferred some of my pictures into my macbook pro, not all though cos it died on me again after a few minutes. All of the pictures are 2-4 months old and some of them I haven't even edited. I seriously need to get it fix. A lot of good stuff I have in there, not just pictures I took but movies and also tv series which I've downloaded all of it myself.

So above are some of the pictures that survived. Taken in the month of may during the Kaamatan festival at my dad's hometown in Kuala Penyu. My cousin took part in the Unduk Ngadau competition. I was supporting her all the way. Try again next year my love :D

His name is Chow.

This mini sized charmer is our second dog. Daddy decided to bring him home from granma's house to accompany Brown, our first dog. He was just a small puppy when he first arrived and so scared of us, always hiding under the car or in the bushes. Didn't even want us to be near him when it's time for dinner. He would wait until we're out of sight then he would creep out from his hiding to eat. Poor boy. 

But now, he's so different! He's naughtier than Brown even. He likes to chase birds and rats outside of the house. I think he's a hunter. Quite lazy sometimes too cos he loves to lie down on the grass, having quite a few naps.  May you grow big and strong, Chowy :)

Just a short sharing

I won't be posting any of my pictures for this post cos I'm not in the mood of doing so. Just want to share a little bit to my followers. Before that, I've just reached 51 followers. Woohoo! Not the sims type of woohoo but woohoo as in yahoo! Thank you to all you followers for still following me loyally. I may be the laziest photo blogger that you have followed and despite of my lack of updates, all of you still stick around with me and not even once I see the number of my followers decreased. Once again, thank you for still following me and I promise you that I will continue to take pictures and I won't stop learning to improve my not-very-good photography skills. Besides, I still have heaps of things to learn about the tips and tricks. So followers, please bare with me :)

The real thing that I want to share with all of you is that I'm interested in old vintage cameras and it's actually a wish of mine to own one. What I like about old vintage camera is that it gives some sort of a retro feel to the pictures and I like the fact that when you take pictures with a film camera, you won't be able to edit or retouch those pictures anymore. It is what it is. A little more time and thoughts will be needed before you decide to press the shutter to make sure that every shot is good and the film will not be wasted. There are several models that I would want them to be mine but the model that I'm so crazy about is the TLR camera! I'm a big sucker for TLR vintage cameras but Ricohflex and Rolleiflex are my ultimate favorite brands. I have been searching for it online but I think it's too risky to buy something that is very old from online shops without looking at the condition of the camera on my own. Joel's brother owns a Rolleiflex and that made me a little envious and I was like 'I want one too..'. Is there any shops in KK that sell these kind of vintage cameras with very reasonable price? 

For now, I can only look at pictures and imagining that I'm holding the camera in my hands. Some day, just maybe that imagination will be true. *fingers crossed*

The viewfinder is at the top.

That's all for now, have to focus on my studies before my final exam this sunday.

PS: I do not own those pictures :)

Black and White

Sometimes, all of us need to see the simple side of things. It doesn't have to be all in technicolor. With only 2 colours, black and white have the ability to give a greater impact into a picture and makes it more dramatic. Less is definitely more.

This is another collaboration between Joel and I. I took the pictures and he retouched them using Adobe Photoshop. These pictures have been buried in my document for quite a long time and I just remembered about it this afternoon. I must say that I apologized for the lack of updates because of my laziness and not having the inspiration to take any pictures. Will try to update as much as I can, at least once a week. 

I'll be sitting for my finals this sunday, hoping that it will go well and wish me luck!
