It’s Friday!

I’m just looking forward to the weekend – not because I can kick back and relax, but hopefully could work on the hobbies, like photography.

I hope you have a good day.

Later!

Street Photography is an Experience

No – this is a picture of a street, it’s more of a landscape than street photography. Haha…

Street photography is a thrilling art.

A moment can make or break you. A single hesitation or unpreparedness could spell the difference between a shot taken, or lost – for a moment, once gone, can never be repeated.

Taking to the streets to take photos of urban life, people and the goings-on of city living has been one that I have always wanted to try ever since I learned about it. I never got the opportunity, however, to experience going on a photo walk with a group of photographers to help build up my courage.

Sometimes Unfortunate Things Happen

I just need to get this out just to get my sanity in order.

This morning, as I was heading off to work, I had a fender bender.

Since it was in my neighbor hood, I was running slow. In fact, I was running the car really slow because in the right side of the road, I saw a kid sitting in the curb, plus there were cars parked on both sides of the road. Got to be careful, you know?

When Your Shows Jump Streaming Services

I recently watched a video produced by Linus Techtips on why Piracy Will Never Die.

There, he talked about how, despite the availability of legitimate streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, people will still end up pirating shows. Because it is more convenient.

His talk centered around how at the start, Netflix and Hulu had managed to slow down the pirates by making their streaming services much more convenient than piracy by providing a low fee to be able to stream and watch shows.

In a Blogging Slump

Hello, everyone! How are you all doing.

I can’t seem to find the right topic to blog about, so I guess I am stuck again. For the past few days I would start composing a blog post, then hit a creative block. Nothing.

It’s like crickets singing in my brain – it’s very empty.

So, instead of having this day a no-blogging day again, I decided to just blog.

When you find yourself in a slump, and can’t seem to get yourself to get moving, the best way to get out of it is to just go and do it anyway.

You see, it’s like inertia in physics. If you don’t exert any force on an object, it will stay at rest and will not move. If you want to accomplish anything, you have to force yourself to get moving, or else you will forever be in that position that you are in.

What have I been up to lately? Photography. More specifically, street photography.

I picked up the hobby again, because as I walk around I keep seeing images around me that I think would make really good photos.

Lately though, I have not taken any pictures on account of the weather and schedule I have. It’s raining a lot lately, and while I do think that taking photos in the rain is very possible, I don’t really want to put my camera in danger of getting wet. Hahaha…

Anyway, thank you very much for reading! I really appreciate you taking the time.

I hope you have a nice day.

If You Can’t Write- Read!

Last year, I was very disappointed with myself with how I was not able to progress that much with NANOWRIMO. I also was not writing that much.

Looking back on what I have been doing – it was not so much as a lack of time, it was more of a lack of discipline. I was spending way too much time doing other things other than writing.

Well, to be fair to myself, I pursued film making more last year, rather than writing. I learned video editing and videography. We even invested in a professional-quality (though not state-of-the-art) camera that can take good videos. Film making on a smartphone can be a good form of practice, but there are a lot of limitations that a gear upgrade could solve. In any case, I did mention in this blog a couple of times that I ended up being the cameraman/producer for my wife’s youtube channel.

Is it really that hard to write?

Is Blogging Hard?

Blogging is writing. Therefore, the difficulty of maintaining a blog depends upon how much of a writer you are, and how easy it is for you to scrape up ideas for a post.

But what if you can’t write well? I think as long as you can cover the basics and can convey your thoughts and ideas well, you’d make it somehow. The techniques of writing an engaging and well-crafted blog post can come later. We do have to learn to crawl before we can run, right?

Wow, I’m Linked to TVTropes

I was surprised to see in one of my referrer sites that my site got an incoming link from TVTropes.

I love that site. I have spent hours reading various tropes and things related to media that I have watched over there. I find it a useful tool for writing, and even in analyzing movies, TV series and anime.

Naturally, I had to investigate.
