I could weep with relief that I’ve finally finished this challenge. I have Marj & Zsappy to thank for the pressure, since they did theirs right on schedule. So here’s the last batch of this photo challenge, and what a useless crop it is:
Day 21 – Faceless Self-portrait
Another photo shoot done at the office. Oh well.
Smile though your heart is aching…
Despite the lure of cheap eats, nostalgic walks around the acad oval, and the general feeling of lightness when I visit my old university, I haven’t been back as much as I’ve wanted since I’ve graduated. This year though, I’ve been back on two separate occasions.
It feels like a few months ago, but it has been a full year since my friend and I went to Malaysia for the Arsenal Asia Tour 2011. I’ve already posted about the football part of that trip as soon as we got home from KL. My motivation for posting so fast might have been part documentation, part humblebrag. Clearly, it wasn’t to showcase the quality of my sports photography.
Before I begin with the sightseeing pics, here are a few ground rules:
Welcome to KL!
If I ever thought that I’d magically improve my technique (did I ever have one?) by days 11-20, I must have been pretty deluded at that time. Maybe if I didn’t cram these pictures so much, I would have had more time to plan and execute the challenges. Or not.
Day 11 – Something Blue
I think that it’s a bit harder for me when the day’s challenge is very general, thus, giving me a lot of options. No, that’s not a good thing for me, I end up taking too long choosing what to shoot. But then again, it is called a photography “challenge”, right?
A few of my friends and I are doing this 30-Day Photography Challenge we found via Pinterest from this blog. Personally, it’s an exercise in creativity — or what little creativity I have left. I used to design posters and teasers for my org in college but now the most creative thing I do for my job is color coding my flowcharts.
Here are some of the shots I didn’t get to upload:
Day 1 – Self-portrait
The reason why I hardly change my profile/display pics is because I’m forever conscious of getting solo pics taken (group pics are not a problem). The hardest part was trying not to make goofy faces at the cam.
