726

726

May 2013

I used Hipstamatic app to take that photo while I was walking around Suvarnabhumi airport (Bangkok), waiting for my brother’s arrival. I photographed dozens of pictures during that time because I just wanted to try the new lens and films I bought in-app. Moreover, I was trying to find the right photo for Sue’s a word a week challenge:worker which I chose another one as the entry for that challenge. However, it was quite difficult decision because I also wanted to choose others which one of them was this 726 photo.

I liked the moment of this one when he walked towards the light with his tool for work. The shadows were reflected on the floor. So I chose it as an entry for this 3rd Monday’s Phoneography Challenge, the Phone as Your Lens: Black and White. I also resized it and wrote blog credit in Typesetter.

Rewind the memories

 

 Play the laughter.

Rewind the memories.

Stop the pain.

Pause the happiness.

I chose ‘Travel’ as an approach to Phoneography Challenge’s challenger choice (Pick One: Abstraction, Architecture, Food Photography, Night Photography, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography, and Travel). Those photos were among of many photos created during the time I traveled with my friend in some states on the East Coast of the United States. At that time, I just got the App ‘Shot Memo’ for free so I was excited to use it for writing a short note on each photo and posted them on my Facebook wall as a brief version of my trip in the US.

When I went through those photos again, I found that the comments I put on those pictures were useful even though they were boring such as name of places or meals. Because they help me play back the memories; the exhausted moments, the happy time, the magnificent views, or the delicious meals.

Remembered the time I ate full breakfast at Joe’s cafe on the way to my friend’s home. I loved every thing on that plate especially scrambled egg and I was so in love with French Toast (ahh, just thinking of them makes my mouth watering). Or turned back time to those walking trails that I took: the Harkening Hill trail, the Huckleberry trail, and the Stony man trail. Recalled the moment of being entertained in the Broadway Show ‘Anything goes’. Enjoyed myself in those museums and art galleries. I could go on and on. Of course, I did face a few difficulties during my trip; however they couldn’t replace my moments of joy.

I snapped this photo by iPhone4 using application called Oggl in order to prove to my friend that Oggl ‘Food filter’ is good for taking Food photos. And I think this shot can confirm my comment.

My friend and I went to the restaurant named Tensho Yakitori at Digital Gateway Siam Center, Bangkok. It is a Japanese restaurant which focuses on Deep Fried and Grilled food in Japanese style. That dish’s name is Buta Kimchi Nabe or we can call it as Kimchi Soup with Pork because Buta (Japanese) means Pork and Nabe (Japanese) means hot pot.

Kimchi is a traditional fermented Korean side dish made of vegetables with a variety of seasonings (source).

I really like Kimchi but I had never tried it as in hot pot before I ate that meal, and I liked this style too. However, I think it would be more suitable if we ate it in the cold weather, not in the hot and humid environment as Bangkok. Still, it was a tasty food.

It is my iPhone 4’s small talk. I’ve used this phone for 2 years and a half which I think it’s enough to cover the amount I’ve paid for. I use my phone almost everyday and I often listen to music via those earphones. When I saw those 3 parts were separated, I’d like to take some photos of them. Why? I didn’t know, perhaps I just wanted to post some on my Facebook wall. And after taking many photos, I liked its black and white versions the most.

I couldn’t put it in my ear as the front cover would remain in my ear hole when I pull the earphone from there. So I asked my dad to stick the front cover to the remaining part by glue. I didn’t hope much for the result. Anyway, finally it worked but the sound from that right side isn’t as loud as from the good left side. But I’m fine with that because I don’t want to buy the new earphones just for my iPhone 4. I hope everything will not fall apart until the new iPhone is released in this fall. (Cross Fingers).

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 misunderstood that this week’s phoneography challenge is Black & White but it actually is macro. So I didn’t prepare anything for a response to this week’s challenge until before typing this post.

I chose to snap photos of this small pigs made from glass. The big one has diameter around 0.8 inches while 0.2 inches for the small objects. They looked like a family so I created the story for the above shots.

Natural beauty

Yesterday while my dad and I were arriving home after going outside, my dad met this creature on our garage floor. He hurriedly told me before I stepped inside home building. And then that winged creature flew from the ground to catch the edge of a plant pot. Luckily, I had iPhone with me so I could snap a lot of shots while this beauty was standing still.

My dad guessed that this budgerigar fled from an unknown owner who resides in our neighborhood. That’s why, this natural beauty was so tame and not afraid of human (me).

Look at the camera!

This beauty was just standing and let me take many photos as I wanted. After I retreated to my bedroom, this natural beauty flew from that spot to somewhere in the sky. We just hoped that the beauty could find the way back home.
