Is blogging mainstream?

 Damn, it's cold! I can finally say winter is here. Well then, let’s stop talking about the weather and do some blogging. This week's post is about a couple of days late as I was too lazy to go out. Aaaahhhhhh!! I just want to roll in my blanket, watch some movies and indulge myself with some crazy fast-food. Ok! Enough about the laziness too…

So finally, I pushed myself to go out in cold and what do I see? Fur!! Bloody fur everywhere, not that I am saying that’s bad (aside for the animal cruelty). In fact, I want to buy some huge ass parka with lots of faux fur but seeing it everywhere is a bit too much! However, I managed to spot a few who really stood out and knew how to coordinate the particular kind of clothing. And another thing I've been noticing while doing my thang (gangsta talk hahaah) was bloggers. Is fashion blogging becoming mainstream? I have encountered so many bloggers, particularly in Oxford Street; so many people getting their guns (camera) ready, laying there patiently for their prey (awesome people with awesome fashion sense). It’s a good thing people are doing what they are truly passionate about. As for me, I do love photography but I am not seeing myself doing this full-time presently. Let’s see where it goes, pro or just as a hobby? Anyway, please do enjoy the photos.

Autumn Calling

The day began with clouds wrapping the entire sky. It looked like it would shower any moment but it didn’t, which was fortunate. It was an ideal day for some photography with natural soft lights hitting my 50mm lens. Who would have thought that this session would be such a great success as I tackled my fear of interacting with strangers. It was a great day or should I say a great start to October. I've finally gained a little bit of confidence on asking people for their photos. Credit goes to all the beautiful people who allowed me to take their pictures and to help craft this blog. I must say the photos came out pretty good for me and hope they are to their liking as well. 

I also happened to come across a celebrity! Martin Freeman who recently appeared in the movie, The World’s End, is well-known for his roles in The Hobbit and Sherlock. I have already mentioned in my instagram of this little funny story, but why not share it in the blog as well. The thing is, I didn’t recognise him at first. The blue suit with scarf, leather loafers and an apple patterned bag he was carrying got my attention. I took a shot from the back but asked if I could take his photos. With smile he said yes, as I was pointing my camera towards him, he added; “But you gotta be in it”. Then it hit me, OMG. This is Martin Freeman... I took out my phone and took photos of the both of us. It was an awesome day!!
