Sit with me, you needn’t say any word. No words can replace that feeling of you by my side. It’s better than a call or even a delivered gift. We can do it at home, or even at an outing – like taking a rest in a crowded place. You’re here, and my heart is at ease.

Witnessed a bunch of children playing catch outside this shop. This boy just got tagged. Decided to make himself comfortable before his next pursuit. He could care less what onlookers think about him. I need to find this similar space again and the ability to laugh at myself. Now who wants to play tag?
The old school photography rule is that if you shoot in the shade, you need to overexpose to bring out the details there. There’s a trade off to that in unshaded areas being washed out. Modern technology such as High-dynamic-range (HDR) solves this problem but I much prefer the old school feel. It speaks to me about cause and effect and to choose wisely what to keep and what to lose. I chose this man over the tiles on the road of Malacca’s Dutch Square. A face is worth a thousand tiles. And more.
I know I take pains to look good. The mirror is indispensable. But I realised that almost all the time, I’m only taking care of half my estate. Why? Because it’s impossible to see fully the appearance of my back on my own. I figure the best way is for someone to take a photo of me from behind. I believe I’m designed this way to know that I can’t live alone, I need people who care about me to watch my back.
