Photography

Spring officially ended yesterday and as a way of saying hello to a new season, let me share my favourite photo of this year’s Spring Sunset.

Spring Sunset 2014

I’ve shared an Autumn Sunset and a Winter Sunset previously and as I look at them, I see a difference in each one and appreciate their individual beauty. Living in Sydney has made me love Sunsets so much more. A few days ago, the Husband and I were watching the sun set and I was just sitting still. He asked if I was tired of watching the sunset and I said, “Never. Some days, I just want to savour it with my eyes and keep the memory inside my head.”

Summer is officially here. Longer days ahead, longer sunsets to watch.

Ibyang + Instagram = Ibyangram

While my instagram photos are shared on my twitter page and sometimes on my tumblr and fb page, I would like to have a monthly dump of ibyangrams. It is thru instagram that I share everyday moments and random finds. I use instagram as my real time mini-blog. Every end of the month, I’ll be choosing a couple of photos from my instagram and share it here because I have something more to say about a certain ibyangram.

The month of October came and went as fast as it could. The days seemed to fly by as we kept ourselves busy with this new blog (ibyang.com)–we’re still working on a few things at the back end; spent time with loved ones on our free time and chased a few gastronomical pursuits (which I will share in separate posts).

Here are some of the highlights of my October…

Just taking a minute to be grateful for a Husband who supports my love for the Creative Life.

I’m a trying-hard-at-being-creative person. I wasn’t born gifted with hands that can draw or skills that can create beautiful things. I worked extra hard at being creative as it didn’t come naturally to me.  But I have always loved creating things, whether it is in art or writing. I used to create scrapbooks before; have always loved taking photographs and writing journals.  I have always appreciated the work the comes in art and literature.

Having met the Husband, he nurtured my skill in photography and drawing. He exposed me to art by taking me to exhibitions. He’s gifted me with cameras that will help me take photographs and continually coaches me in using them. Over time, I have developed a little skill at writing my thoughts thru my blog and learning from authors and bloggers I admire. The Husband also takes part in my blog life by developing a site for me and  making me understand the technicalities of a website.

Being with the Husband has opened my eyes to a life of creativity…of seeing the world differently thru my eyes and being able to create something that fulfills me.
