Sorry for the lack of update. I’ve been ill for the last few days and still ill but I figured at least I have to post something today.

Anyway, I haven’t bee able to go out so I’ve been digging my library today and a lot of shots I really like including this one.
Not sure with the tone though as I am no expert in monochrome/B&W photograph.

The couple in the background were having a date or something and the girl is looking right at me so I focused on the flower instead of stealing their privacy :)).

The only thing that bother me is the dark shade on the right top. It’s probably the tree but ah well, I’m going to leave it that way.

Forgot something?!

I couldn’t manage to adjust the lighting in the room that moment because I was afraid by the time I get back, the cute pose will gone so I had to be quick and I was right about it.

I probably should adjust the digital lighting and crop it. But, I kinda like my photograph without cropping. Because, that way I can live and learn with my mistake.
Talk about self-taught x_x.

Not sure what I was drawn to. Was it the nature view or the jailbar? I’m not sure. I know that I kinda break the rules on the photograph but I realized that sometimes I use my feeling and emotion when taking a photograph.

Someone dumped this poor thing at the Port and there were 10 ( I counted them) homeless cats around this area and she is one of them. This homeless cat is 10 years old according the old lady who’ve been feeding the homeless cats around here for years.

I caught her laying there still, looking at the ocean. She doesn’t seem to be afraid of me so I was lucky enough to get a couple shots of this beautiful creature before she got scared and ran off when she saw my niece running towards me.

Anyway, back to the photography, I slightly adjusted the vibrancy and colour of the eyes so her naturaly blue eyes pop up.

My eyes caught the blue sky reflected on the water while the other side of the sky looked grayish. It was a strange day with strange weather.

My niece pointed this flower with bug, she wanted me to take the photograph so this is for her :))

Edited:

I just want to make something clear here, that is difficult to shot bug when you’re with kids around and this is the closer I can get considering the lens I used for this shot, it’s not a macro lens anyway. I also used the lowest F number as low I can get from this lens that moment.

Plus I wanted to shot prettiness of the flowers and the other interesting one that isn’t blooming yet as well so I used this angle. Anyway I shot a couple shots from a few others different angle as well, this is the best one I really like.

Thank you all for constructive comments.

It was a great moment, but I wish I had better lens for this kind of shot.

Nothing special. I was on my way to the book store and saw the lamp because it reminded me with Harry Potter :))
