"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

Ode to The Wedding Photographer

I've had enough time to...   shoot the wedding photographer

Shooting the wedding photographer in St. Thomas Cathedral in Kuching, Sarawak

The wedding photographer was all over the place
Searching every angle, squeezing tight space
The only one with sweat on his face

He shot, reviewed, reshoot one after another
But his expression always carries that same bother
Like that of a serial scowler

Maybe he feels something is eluding him
Which make him kind of grim
And the singing of hymn
Is only pushing him to the brim

Time is running out
For him to make a shot that makes him proud
And the bride shrieking out loud

So at the critical chapter
When the couple kneels before the altar
He kneels along after
And made that perfect shot together with a prayer


  1. I believe that a wedding fotgraf - this is a vocation

    1. Yes, Migalayte - it is a vocation and a tougher one than what most people thinks.

  2. A 1000 Reasons
    It is always fun and interesting watching other photographers when they are serious about making their shot, whether they are professional or not. I cannot say much about this photographer sense of dressing but I've to compliment on the length he will go to to get his shot. Even if it meant he will have to kneel down to make the perfect shot. So when the bride and bridegroom kneels before the priest, he immediately falls to his kneels too but for very different reasons. I hope his prayer is answered :)

    Good Morning Dear Friend, I Vale and Appreciate Your Opinion and Comment.
    When I Write : Inflated Infracture.... it not only refers the city hall,,,but all , including, roads, buses, trams, trains, university, park, garden, fountain, power, water supply, maintenance of all these.......These things are available in this part of world in plenty.
    I am in Silicon Valley for the past 3 months,,, I find these facilities are not fully utilized, not many people there to use.... Empty benches in deserted park, fountains in full force, but no one to enjoy...wide platforms with few people using it.
    The city hall you I mentioned earlier is a massive beautiful building, with extra ordinary facilities , We visited at least ten time, we hardly come across people there. Except in one evening we participated in gathering.
    This is what I meant " Under utilized facilities"
    With Warmest greetings. I value your opinion, exchanging it enriches both.

    My Dear Anonymous Friend,
    I Like Your Reasoning, and Agree With Your Thoughts,
    I Like Your Definition for Last Breath. " Feel The Sharp Knife Of A Short Life"
    Flicker Is A Wonderful Place For Exchanging Views And Engage In Intellectual Talk. But
    Seldom People Do That. .....Let Us Stay In Touch. With Warmest Greetings.

    Ha ha ha love your capture and observation of the determined photographer. I hope you helped him get back up on his feet again lol.
    Thanks for clarying that it is the Chinese tradition you were referring to. I don't know why, but I got the impression you might be Malaysian and possibly into Buddhism. Now you really know how terrible I can be at times at guessing lol.
    Regarding your geese/duckling family question - I have answered it in my photostream under your question. I hope that helps in solving the mystery. : ))
