"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?

I'm In-Between...

I've had just enough time to...   get out from in-between...

Shot on the last day in Singapore...

The last few days I was in Singapore with my team to do development work on a new project with some really nice people. Every morning when I went down from the 24th floor and coming out of the lift when I returned at night; I will look out the window sandwiched between the two rows of lifts. Always looking for something worthy to shoot and each time wondering whether I have a story for the little child’s bicycle with the pink frame outside the balcony. But I did not shoot that. On the last morning as I was about to rush down to check out, I again looked out the window. It was a dark and rainy morning, kind of gloomy. It was then, for the first time I noticed the world in-between the two apartment blocks…

...on a rainy and gloomy morning,


I’m in-between.
In-between jobs
The last one’s no good
The new one’s not promising
But I’m in-between
So I guess that’s okay

I’m in-between relationships
The old one’s heart-breaking
The current one’s temporary
So I guess
That makes it tolerable

I’m in-between Lives
Up to now, it is kinda disappointing
So I need some re-inventing
For my Life is in-between

All those in-betweens…

I saw for the first time, the world in-between.. in-betweens


  1. Wonderful interpretation of that view. You were very perceptive to spot it. An amazing feeling, isn't it, when just a glimpse of something from the corner of your eye can inspire such introspection, feeling and emotion.

  2. Thanks Mark for your insightful comment. Yes, I always find it thrilling whenever an inspiration jumps up from something I observed. This is what I hunt for when photographing, not knowing what I seek yet sure of it when I see it. Thanks!

    These were the balconies I was considering whether was worth while to shoot. The story did not come so I did not shoot. I made this shot as a supplement to the in-between shot. I don't understand myself so I don't expect others will :)

    A pleasing creative snap. Could be used as a texture.

    Try the dharma....

    ..... who does understands him/herself.......? and when we all of the sudden do, then we change ........

    A melancholic mood, a wish, a hope perhaps....

    Shamblady knows where its at. Great mood to this photo tho.

    Gloom nicely depicted ;)

    Man does not grow older ,they grow wiser ,as they dare to change.

    Great shot!

    Fantastic description of your feelings for the photo, thank you for sharing and for your thought provoking picture!

    Couldn't find the forest for the trees huh
    Very inviting presentation !

    You saw the world in between, I saw the distance between the two building . The world in between is our relationship with others, friends , colleagues , parents , children ..and the gap between ,is the respect to each other .
