A macro shot of some water plants and a lily pad..
This one's a desaturated version of the earleir shot.. hmms didn't know which one to pick!
Mr.Grasshopper taking a minute to peer at the peculiar creature staring intently at him with a funny contraption...
This one's actually a tritone version of an earlier pic (called Walkways i think). Anyway, i like it better this way. Renamed it too. Makes more sense. A bigger version can be seen at http://www.deviantart.com/view/26996952/
Airports to me have always been a symbol of change and cross tresh holds. A walkway from one world to another. A passage between countries, cultures, class and consiousness...
And so the journey continued...
...through secret pathways
...in the searing sun
...through ancient doorways
...till alas, we reached the cool waters of the... pool (?!) *hee* i should stop eating fudge before i make pposts ;)
So as my parents lazed by the pool, my sis and i went to explore the resort grounds
My crazy sis obligingly posing in front of the reception area.
An entrance to one of the villas..
I just fell in love with the private pool at the family villa... *ahhhh*
Our first morning at ARMA Resort, Ubud, Bali..
Although in the grander scheme of things i know that 5 XD cards is not enough for me to adequately shoot a 6 day holiday, somehow, at the beginning of the trip, i felt like i could be very liberal with my shots - meaning: i shot a lot of sky :) la la la...
Sometimes, when i looked out the window, i was almost convinced that what i saw outside wasn't real... it looked like a painting or a backdrop from some disney movie.
I was so dreamy up there watching the clouds float by. It was so calming.
There were times when the plane dipped and the sun caught my window in full glare. It cast bright beams and long shadows in the cabin - all very ethereal looking.
Apparently, there's only so much time you can spend shooting cute guys before you realise that they're not so cute anymore. As you can see, we were very very VERY bored.. hahah.. luckily for me, i was at the other end of the camera when we were acting silly while waiting for the plane. *hee*
Our plane was delayed by about 2 hours which gave me and my sis a lot of time to be bored. Thankfully, i have a digital cam so i decided to play around with my cam's filters while shooting some unsuspecting (and equally bored) people in the departure hall. My sis thought the guy with the earphones in the middle of the pic was kinda cute so... *snap snap* :)
Being in airports, for some reason, always infuses me with a certain buzz. I don�t know whether it�s because I�ve always thought of airports as a checkpoint of sorts for people�s lives or if it�s because I�m always itching to go somewhere new, but either way, I usually get a bit heady when I�m there. So me and my sis are prancing about the squeaky departure hall floors when we spot a kiddie-playground-airplane-thingy. Giving in to our naturally heady instincts, we then proceeded to traipse around the thing and shoot trippy pictures through the red-tinted-bubble-window-things on the side or the kiddie plane. I kinda like this one of my baby sis... wheee�
I'm back from Bali... and how i miss it!! Bali was just wonderful and not just for the usual reasons that people like it (e.g. the shopping, spa etc.. although i DID love that about Bali ;> ) but more so for the sense of discovery, vibe of underlying potency and just general feel of it all. This is a shot of the departure hall at KLIA. I kinda thought that the reflected lights on the polished granite floor looked like a pathway of little stars..
