Photo101: Day 18 ‘ Edge’

image

Its all about edges. Here’s my shot on that, although I don’t really like it.

Photo101: Day 17 ‘Glass’

image

I couldn’t capture whatever that is at the back. My camera only focus on the window.

Photo101: Day 16 ‘Treasure’

image

My treasure, the life experience of travelling. The best school we could ever attend.

Photo101: Day 15 ‘Landscape’

image

From the highest hill I could find, took this magnificent view using my phone camera. Did some editting, which includes cropping the edges.

Photo101: Day 14 ‘Swarm’

image

Swarm of messages. Short notes. Hanging onto nails. Motivation. Dreams. Live. Love. Be loved. An expression. The first thing that came to mind.

Today i am wise, so i decided to change myself”

Photo101: Day 13 ‘Moments’

Just a guy playing some sort of flute

Photo101: Day 12 ‘Architecture’

image

I though I should try something different. So i ditch my canon and took this shot using Holga camera 120gcfn. I use a 120mm slide film, and took multiple shots. When developing the film, instead of a normal process i used cross process to contrast the photo. No photo editor was used, but the processing takes a longer time.

Photo101: Day 11 ‘A pop of Color’

Dull grey would be my choice of color. It reflects the mood the vocalist was in at that point of time, and with a microphone in hand, we wonder what song the vocalist might be singing. A love song? Emo core? Trash or metal? We don’t really get to know, don’t we.

Decision Making

So as we take a break from photography101,  lets use this time to write another entry for this blog. Lets talk abt decision making. Afew days back, i read an article on Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook. He just had his first Q&A session with a group of people, and alot of questions were asked. One particular question that got my attention was, i quote “Why do you always wear a grey tshirt and blue jeans, be it for dinner, interview or wherever”. So his answer to that amazed me.

Being a founder of a giant networking site is no easy work. Behind closed doors, alot of ideas and decision making was being done day in day out. In life, we make decisions every day of every hour of every minute. Like what time should we leave the house, should i lock my door, what shall i have for breakfast, so on and so forth. So to be in his position, alot of decision making was made. And to top that off, most decisions are crutial and no one can deny that. So why the grey tshirt and blue jeans? Its to minimize the options for him. He doesnt have to decide what to wear for today, which shirt to buy at a mall, and how people would think of his attire when he walks around the street.

I did my research, and truth be told alot of other powerful and influential people are doing what he did too. Take for example the late Steve Jobs from Apple. Or Bill Gates from Microsoft. Don’t believe me then try googling them. You see, life is short to make all these unnecessary decisions. Live simply. Don’t get worked up over a simplest things. Like they say, YOLO! (You only live once)
