Looking forward

It is officially the year and this is usually the time to reflect on things that happened throughout the year. This usually includes goals that we set ourselves usually of things to accomplish in the New Year. Last year, I decided to no longer make a list or any resolutions. Not only are the list…

The voices within

We all hear voices and whether they are our own is entirely a different thing. We are surrounded by them. They can be our own, others even friends or family. Things get complicated when we are surrounded by too many external voices and forget to listen to our own. It is well known that artists…

Expression, Perspectives and Timing

As individuals, we are all different. I am an introvert and an over thinker. I can force myself into into social situations. However, I am not one for small talks as I find small talks draining. Somehow I have found myself in the creative world and creating a blog and permanently putting my thoughts out…

Finding Inspiration

Inspiration is such a tricky thing and not so tangible. We are either inspired or struggling to find inspiration. Lately I’ve been struggling with finding anything throughout this year. My normal usual sources of inspiration had always been museum, art, exhibitions, reading etc.. Unfortunately, nothing has worked. In such cases, I’ve found that the best…

An open mind

For several years now, I have walked the streets of London. Like most popular cities in Europe, the streets are cluttered with buildings. Some older than I am and others a lot more recent but each as fascinating as the next. Common to many, London has a wide variety of architectural styles from a variety…

Perfection in Photography

I use to believe that the most captivating images had to the perfect ones. They are perfect because they tick all the right boxes – composition, light, storytelling etc… After pouring over numerous images by masters in field for the purpose of learning, I have realised that most of my favourites images are the ones…

Abstraction

In this creative game, it is important that we keep going whether your outlet is photography, painting, writing etc… Before diving into creating abstract,I had refuted the idea simply because it would not be expected of me. Being an introvert/people pleaser means that I often do thing that often made me deeply unhappy. Pleasing others…

Seeing Details in architecture

Our instincts when we first see a scene that draw our attention is to try and fit everything into one image. I for one purchased a wide angle lens for this exact purpose. However, I’ve come to learn that details are just as important as the entire scene. In architecture, details have the power to…

Being Present

As individuals that lead second lives online, we are expected to have perfect lives. We all know that life is far from perfect. August is an emotionally difficult month for for me. This year’s has been more difficult than past years. I lost someone very dear to me five years ago and her birthday is…
