Ever had sometimes in life, somethings just seems so vivid? Some scenes in life just seems so clear?
The colours or the object or the scene or the persons itself seems to jump out and say, “Hey, look at me?”
And you did.
It always happens to me..and in the past, how i wished i had a great camera to capture the essence of that object.
That was the start of my love affair with photography.
I had always been an artist at heart, a scientist in mind. where my hearts says , “oh look at the beautiful thing..”, whereas my mind says “how do i do this so that people understand why this matter? how do i capture this without losing it’s vividness of life?”
at times i feel like partly autistic. yes, autistic. to be around life that is so hauntingly colourful, every little thing screams so much detail. kind of disturbing, really but it’s not hard to guess why finally i commit myself to this.
as a budding photographer, i learn to be eccentric . the free dictionary.com defines it as a person with an unusual or odd personality.truthfully, i had always been a bit eccentric before.
eccentric in my dictionary: to do your daily activities, then suddenly to stop and take out my G11 to take a picture. THAT picture. the need is so overpowering, it surprise myself.
To see life with eyes of the heart. Surah Ali-Imran, ayat 191 states that reaction;
“..dan berfikir mengenai kejadian langit dan bumi (sambil berkata): Wahai Tuhan kami! Tidaklah Engkau menjadikan benda-benda ini dengan sia-sia, Maha Suci Engkau, maka peliharalah kami dari azab neraka.”
I leave this note with an amusing picture to smile upon. :).
May ALLAH bless us with a better day today than yesterday, and a much more better tomorrow than today.
