I had just returned from a wedding assignment which took me almost two hours drive away from where I stay. The wedding took place at Sepang Gold Coast's premium location, the Golden Palm Tree Resort. Me and my photographer partner of the day, Fred arrived as early as 7am in the morning, and we shot a pre-wedding portraiture around the resort and beach locations in the morning. The actual day ceremony actually started in the evening, during sunset, which continued immediately to the reception dinner. All in all, it was surely a unique interesting wedding assignment to remember, and our hosts and also the newly weds have been overly generous and kind, taking care of me and my friend Fred very well.
Coming home from a full day shoot, I just felt like taking the whole Sunday slow and easy. There was that constant nagging behind my head that reminded me to make time for some shutter therapy session, but my body just refused to move. Not wanting to just waste the whole day away, I finally decided to make a quick stroll (which then lasted less than an hour) and grab some shots. I was not exactly in the mood to go all out and attack the streets like tomorrow will never come, and I chose to shoot everything from a distance instead. Not my usual style, but it was necessary as I was not in the best of myself to approach strangers and make things work.
All images were taken with Sony A350 and DT 50mm F1.8 lens
I guess when you get deeply involved or being overly passionate about something, you tend to cause some sparks there and here unintentionally, and that spark, if not taken care of, may start a fire. The short shutter therapy session was much needed to clear my mind off some things which have been saturating my mind lately.
New Year 2013 is upon us. I am not sure if I should be making my list of resolution for the coming year, it is not a tradition that I keep, but I sure am open to new ideas.
