Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

IMG_2161IMG_2191

This week’s photo challenge is about reflections, in the figurative and literal sense of the word. I took these images at a local dam on a winter’s day in Johannesburg, during a time of deep contemplation. The water was completely still, allowing for a magnificently vivid shot.

I strive to be in this state, no matter how turbulent my thoughts are. An accurate perception of reality comes from a place of calm.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Window

These images were taken just before sunset in Magaliesburg, South Africa. This is my favourite time to take pictures, when the light adds a golden glow to everything it touches. From my vantage point, only trees and mountains could be seen outside. Not a building or shadow in sight.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Let there be Light

The above picture was taken in Koh Chang. I wanted to capture this guy contemplating during sunset, while the lights from the resorts came on in the background.

This image was taken on the rooftop of a hotel in Taroko Gorge, Taiwan.

It was New Year’s Eve, and my very first countdown in Chinese began. As soon as we got to one,  I caught this downpour of light.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Hue of you

For the weekly photo challenge, I chose these images that I took in January. In the first shot, the shades of the flowers are luminous, brilliant, perhaps vivid. When I am at my best, I would liken my perception to have a tinge of brightness and colour. It’s as if everyday is a Friday, and I feel radiant with a positive energy.

In the second shot, the flowers are grey, dull, lifeless. When depressed, my perception is warped, jaded. It’s as if all colour has been stripped from reality. Nothing has colour, and everything is grey. And it is an overbearing, lucid, vivid grey. It’s as if every moment is a Monday morning.
