Dug out from the old archives, this was one of the winters in Beijing. I don’t remember where or when I took this photo exactly, but the snowflakes intrigued me. It was probably one of the first few encounters I have of snow and not being to experience snow during winter in Perth sure brings back the nostalgia.
Again, taken with a simple point and shoot and I’ve never edited it. I kind of wish there was more bokeh in the background, but I didn’t even know what bokeh was back then.
More to come.
Since I haven’t been taking photos or posting anything lately, due to work, church, more work and just lack of passion in general, I think I owe it to myself to really find what drives me. So I decided to start from the beginning. How it all got started.
This photo was taken in the summer of 2006, with a simple point and shoot camera while on a family trip to Xinjiang, China. We were touring around the countryside, and at this particular lake, I broke away from the tour group, went off the path to snap this photo. And this photo is one of the main reason I took up photography later on.
I just felt the need to post this photo up. I’m glad I still have it, and it remains unedited. And I’ll try to post a bit more from now on.
