taken from the cable car ride going to the Po Lin Monastery
To get to the Po Lin Monastery, you need to take a scenic 20-minute cable car ride. Personally, I really enjoyed this because I imagined that I was flying over the mountains, hehe. From the cable car, I could see this path that started all the way from where we boarded until the Po Lin Monastery! Now that is one helluva hike! Seriously, are there people who really walk that path??
I couldn't resist playing around with silhouettes with these lighted boards at the roof deck of the Peak. Even if it was freezing cold, I made my friends pose in front of the light. I could have framed this shot better but I still liked how it came out!
This shot is one example of the candid shots I mentioned in my previous entry. This little boy has cancer and even for a few hours, we were able to make them feel extra special. There are some blurry parts in this photo but I still like it. I especially like that this little boy connected with this camera. Even if you can't see his smile, his eyes are telling you he's happy.
Now can someone please share tips on how to capture action shots with less blur? :)
Meet Hailey. She's my friend's adopted sister and I must admit, she's quite a handful! Expect a lot of running when you take care of her.
I want to learn how to take better portrait shots and candid shots of people. Lanscapes are beautiful but people tell a story. I need to figure out how to lessen the blurs of movement although sometimes they do make a photo look more interesting!
This pair of hot air balloons really caught my eye. How can you miss an inverted hot air balloon? At first I was worrying about the people who are supposed to be in that balloon! Good thing they announced that the balloon is connected to the upright balloon and the team flying it is actually at the bottom so there wasn't anything to worry about!
