Weekly Photo Challenge : Merge

Standard

Wow! I don’t know how long I didn’t update my photoblog. I guess it’s quite sometime coz I had a friend of mine telling me to start posting again. I’ve got stocks need to be shared and stories need to told but I was so lazy just to put some watermarks on those pictures and write some illustration to go with them to tell the world what I’ve been through or what I’ve seen.

So, now I start over by posting for The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge : Merge. Here are some of my collection which I took when I went back to my home country, Indonesia. These golden bugs which I don’t know exactly what to call, live in bushes near paddyfields. They started as eggs then hatched into larvae for sometime -I am not sure how long- , then turn into chrysalis or pupa (?) if I may call them so and finally emerge as adult bugs.

They have lovely color of golden and both sexes have different sizes. I’m not sure how to tell them apart but one of them is bigger that another. If they’re something like frogs, I am sure the bigger one is female and the smaller one is the male. Alright, here are the bugs 🙂

Which one is female?

Washed Away

Standard

I never knew that going on a hike would make me have lots and lots of pics to share. Couple weeks ago once I got to the Big Wave Bay, I shot some candid (that I would share in another post later) and also much to my surprise, I found seashells etc along the beach as I walked to the cliff on the side of the beach. Here are the cuties (and not so cuties) 😆

Biggie Turns Mini

Standard

I knew my camera had the Miniature Effect mode but I didn’t know how to use it or even had interest to explore it before a friend uploaded a pic to our Kampret page. When I saw the pic he uploaded, I blurted out in confidence, “Oh, it’s a scale model!!!”, then my friend said it was the real deal but taken with an effect which made it look like a model. Ooopsie!

Suddenly, it struck me. I saw it somewhere but where??!! Yep, my camera has the feature. Here I go again, taking pics with a lot of tips from my dear friend. Long shots. Wide angles.Take pictures from above or at least higher ground if possible. Don’t let people come too near to the camera or else it doesn’t look mini. Enjoy! 🙂
