When I grow old, I want to be a photographer.

Wait.  How old is old?  Because now I am a year more than half a decade.  If that makes me old, I have to go pack my things and start to be a photographer, a craft that I have always wanted to polish.  Only that I can’t do that at the moment.  I have a day job that requires eight hours to complete.  Ask me if I am happy with it.  I am not but I can’t quit.  There’s always that need or want decision-making in life, more like a do or die thing.

Long before I get old, I was already fascinated with captured faces, actions, expressions, emotions, colors, shapes, etc. in any form on a photo paper.  It’s funny because we cannot even afford a camera.  That again is another story.  A lot of stories to tell, actually.  So, before this becomes a very long and boring post to read,  I stop here and share some photographs I snatched from the willing victims.  I am not sure if I have the qualifications for this craft but then again requirements are always limiting for me.  I just shoot in vain attempt to document moments and to preserve pictures to keep people alive (at least on paper).  Apart from being fascinated with nature and places, I also love to capture photos of people.

Here are the unedited photos:

These children are so full of youth and life.  They’re a respite from a disappointing day.

The photos below end my daily attempt in photography. 😀

They were once tiny and cute.

About two or three cats that we had in our house looked like these when they were still tiny and cute. The first one was Dagul, the second Baldo, and the third and the youngest is Kuting. The first two were already dead. They were housecats, not of a particular breed. I remember that Dagul was an alpha male, and Baldo a handsome cat with soft features that you will mistake him for a feline.  Kuting looks like a stray cat now and does not want to stay at home.  He only goes home when he’s hungry.

52 Week Photography Challenge #3: Red

dsc00268

Red is one of those colors traditionally associated with the celebration of Christmas.  I am just a recent convert.  I am not a fan before because red for me is so loud and daring.  One day, I tried on a red shirt and it looked good on me.  It gave that happy aura and it made me think it can camouflage my inner weaknesses and gloomy feelings, on days I do not feel happy at all.

You can see how these pretty little visitors were focused on what Kay was telling them.  Of course, these little ones have no idea about the technical stuff of doing these pieces of art works.

Here is another pic.
