Despite using Camera 360 quite for a while, I just found out that it has this B&W filter which leaves a certain area to be in colour. So I used it to crop, edit and apply the B&W green filter to the photo. This young plant has started to grow up next to the old dry one. I captured many photos of them by using iPhone, Olympus and Ricoh. I haven’t checked photos in Olympus and Ricoh yet but I was pretty satisfied with iPhone’s photos.

This post responds to Phoneography Challenge: Challenger’s Choice (Pick One: Abstraction, Architecture, Food Photography, Night Photography, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography, and Travel) which I choose Still Life photography for my entry.

The war inside

I think ignorance might not be able to save me anymore. When I feel like there is a ticking time bomb waiting to explode. I’ve never thought I would encounter this kind of situation before. Last night it happened again and I couldn’t sleep well so I have a headache all day. It seems that I can’t do anything about it. When I dare to touch an issue, that person turns the hate toward me.

I could feel that there is an invisible war inside this place where used to be a warm stay. Even though I wanted to ignore it, that person wouldn’t let me. I’m punished because I chose to turn a blind eye to that issue. As I chose to walk away, the war has started…

I’m stressed.

I fear for the next untrue accusation that person will throw at me.

I’m exhausted.

I chose this photo to response to iPhoneography Challenge which the 4th Monday’s theme will be any of the following choices: Abstraction, Architecture, Food Photography, Night Photography, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography (my choice for this time), and Travel.

Although I enjoy street photos, I don’t think I can do it myself as I’m not good at initiating conversation with strangers or pointing my camera to anyone around me. However, I like observing people or every thing surrounding me and if I’ve got chances I might take photos from afar.

For the above photo that I took from a flyover in front of department store near my home area. At that time, the ray of light was beautiful as it was in the evening. The sun prepared to leave the sky. Everyone seemed to be ready to go home by various forms of transportation; bus, car, taxi, tuk tuk, motorcycle, or bicycle. In order to make the bicycle stands out, I decided to use tilt-shift filter for the required outcome.

I wasn’t fond of black and white photos when I was younger. Whenever my aunt, who is good at photography, was trying to capture photos of me in this two tones, I would complain about how I wanted my photos to be in color. However, my aunt would tell me that black and white photos were classic and I would say thank you to her later when I grew up.

And just not a years ago that I finally took her point about black and white photography. I’m gradually taking more interest in this photo style. I’m also learning how to see light vs shadow. It added another aspect to the way I perceive my surrounding that the colorful images are not only answer for the eyes.
