I’m getting lazy recently. New posts are delayed and delayed I know. And words are getting lesser and forgettable. Sorry folks!
Ever since I came back from Vietnam in July 2010, I have been working on my new blog-site and Portfolio site. I started steadily in the beginning but realized that I was going way too slow. It was not until Jan 2011 that I speed things up a little bit and finally brought my site up. What you are seeing now are the results and months of hard work of mine. But not all have been done yet. I can say that it’s probably 70% completed. I still need to review my India’s photos and upload them to my new Portfolio site. Putting keywords for all my photos in the galleries was another taxing job. But this new revamped site impress me somehow, and I never regret putting in so much effort. Well, in case you want to know, I didn’t write any codes at all for the new website. I signed-up a web-host, bought a domain, installed WordPress software, got the web’s theme from Graph Paper Press, and stored my photos in PhotoShelter. I’m not going into the details. You can click on the links and understand how they work together.
In Jan 2011, I spent a day in Hong Kong, a day in Macau, a day in Zhuhai (珠海, in southern coast of Guangdong province), two days in Dongguan (东莞, in central Guangdong province) and my last day in Guangzhou (广州, capital of Guangdong province). It was crazy! It is not kind of travelling that I would pursue if I’m travelling alone. It was a family trip to visit my great uncle (younger brother of my mother’s father). There was no planning on our side. We just followed our tour guide along the way. Carrying only my new Canon 5D Mark II coupled with a 50mm f/1.4 prime lens, I simply snapped whatever appeared around me. I never hunt for any particular subject. It was a new approach. There wasn’t much attention paid to what I want to photograph. It was free-style. It was street-style. I kind of like the feeling!
Below are some of the images taken on the street near my great uncle’s house, in Dongguan.
