I Love Close Ups

I have always loved photography. I carry a small Canon camera with me everywhere I go. My trusty IXUS 300 in a sexy black. There have been far too many incidents where I had the perfect photo op but want to kick myself when I realize a camera is nowhere to be found. The thought of life passing swiftly by as I desperately try to cling onto the memories is too disconcerting that I need a means of freezing every instant out of time. Yes, I am hugely and overly sentimental. I also keep every movie ticket and other seemingly insignificant scraps of paper to stick into my old-falling-apart scrapbook. Nothing escapes me. I am cheesey like that.

But I also do love taking close up photos of very random objects. This was by the harbour where people tied their boats to the pier so they don’t mysteriously float away and disappear into the unknown. At least that’s what I think would happen, I make things up. I’m not too great at naming my photos though and the best I could come up with for this is The Knot. So original and creative. So not.

Aha get it? Not Knot. I can’t believe my lame humour surfaced so soon and I gave myself away. I should get back to doing the laundry. Till next time! If you come back.

New Beginnings

The thing about starting a blog is that you can go forever thinking about little things like what topics to write, what domain name to choose, what theme you like etc. Then just as you managed to set up the website and install plugins through file transfer protocol (I felt so smart learning how to do that), an error script pops up and nothing but a blank screen appears. Wasn’t so smart after all!

Starting a blog was something I wanted to do for some time, and I had actually registered and hosted another domain but never actually started writing because I got so bogged down by the details. There is nothing like indecisiveness to stop you from accomplishing anything. After spending a couple of years of just thinking and planning, followed by more months of trying to get things perfect first, I decided it is now or never. Don’t think, just DO. Everything else can slowly be updated.

So here it is, my very first blog post! Nothing exceptionally thought-provoking to say or write, but it’s an introduction, a step in the right direction. And maybe, just maybe, the start of an interesting journey to new and exciting things.

Taking a Step

Thank you for dropping by, and I hope you’ll pop back again. I’d love to hear from you so do leave your comments or email me. For now I will write about anything I can think of, things I love…the good, the bad, the ugly…or sometimes just plain silly. Inevitably, I will probably accidentally embarass myself at some point in the process, but what the heck, I’m just keepin’ it real!
