Travel theme: Wood

I found this wood floor at MuakLek Paradise Resort when I joined the new year party of my division. I liked how the wood pattern was emphasized via black and white photography.

Today I tried an updated app called Vintique. It has been in my iPhone for 2-3 years and it has been updated recently to fit the iOS 7 operating system. The new UI is much better than the previous version. I believe that it also has a new function which users can apply pattern to pictures.

The picture was taken at Haneda airport where we could go to the observatory to look at airplanes. Unfortunately, we didn’t see much because it was dark and cold. I was left alone on the deck and I had a few minutes to capture photos.

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.
