Light Up The Sky

taken at Hong Kong

One of the things I love about cities are the night skylines. Especially in Hong Kong where they love their neon lights!

Nowhere to go but Up

taken at Assumption, San Lorenzo

The Lord is really good. Life has been pretty tough for me these past few months and now things have been getting better. He may not give you what you want, but He does give you what you need. :)

The Road Less Travelled

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??

Splash of Red

taken at the Po Lin Monastery in Hong Kong

Love the little splash of red against the green and orange. There were a lot of oranges in the monastery, I'm guessing because they use them as daily offerings.

Yoga At The Peak

taken at Victoria Peak in Hong Kong

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!

My World Tuesday is Playing Tag

taken at Assumption, San Lorenzo

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? :)

Portrait #1: Hailey Garcia

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!

Incense in the Temple

taken at the oldest Manmo Temple in Hong Kong

Rows and rows of incense... each hung there for a different intention.

Skywatch Friday is at Victoria's Peak

taken at Victoria's Peak in Hong Kong

I loved the view from the Peak! It was sooooooooooo cold though. My friends and I were not dressed properly and I was shivering the entire time I was taking pictures but it was so worth it!

Skywatch Friday Is Inverted

taken at the Hot Air Balloon Festival

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!
