Week 3 - Sandbank Picnic

Maybe not quite the photo of the week, by any definition, but still as far as I'm concerned, this is my photo for week 3! It's my last picnic in the Maldives with the Finance boys. We've thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the sandbank - snorkeling, playing ball, barbeque..... Lots of fun, and getting a sunburnt in the process :P

This will be one of the best outing I've had in the Maldives.

Week 2 - My bride

This is Cheryl's 'head gear' (is this the correct word?), while she's in the room, and the make-up artists painting her face, and doing her hair. I like this shot, as I think there is a story in there to be told from the subtle smile from the mirror...

Imagine me still running around with my camera on my own wedding day taking snapshots! But like I always say - Taking snapshots stops the moment from running away. :)

Week 1 - Royal Maldivian message

This is a close-up shot of a Maldivian Royal Message delivery tube. In the olden days, this is used to deliver messages to Royalties in the Palace. It is hand-made and is only available in the Baa Atoll in Maldives. This is given to me as a farewell gift by the Manager at our Male Office, with a message inside. :)

A Photo a week

Yes, I made the same resolution in 2006 but failed to keep it.... now in 2008, I'm making this same resolution again and this time I'm determined and determined to stick to it!!

Photography subjects are all around us, we just need to discover them - from the beautiful sunrise to the glorious sunset, from small household items to mega structures, from tiny ants in the kitchen to the soaring eagles in the sky, from the single mushroom in the gardens to the bountiful flora in the tropical forests, from a child's birthday party to the mega New Year's party, from an unfamiliar face in the streets to the glamour shot of a celebrity, from a simple drive to the local park to the travels to the other side of the world....

.... there is always something to be photographed and 'Kodak' moments to be frozen and kept forever....

"Take snapshots of those you love, freeze the moment so it will not run away" - KW

So look out for weekly updates!!
