To all ye who want to paint with light ...

I should have started this blog many moons ago as I started experiencing the joys of rediscovering the art of photography. But as the saying goes - it's better late, than never!
So, here I am, in the hopes of recording what I learn as I progress from ignorance to enlightenment; about what my eyes can see that my camera can capture; and, what my mind imagines and my camera paints with its capabilities.

Please feel free to add any comments and share your wisdom (tips or tricks) that you have picked up along the way.

Another Project - B&W Project 52

Week 1

The Rose

I couldn't wait to post the first one!  This rose was from the bouquet my friend brought me on my birthday. I had to click this before it started to wilt with the heat, but fortunately, the weather's cooled down a little bit again, so the 3 red roses are still thriving. 

I am starting this project in the hopes of getting back on track with some serious photography, rather than just shooting what I can find.  52 black and whites in the next 52 weeks!

I will try to blog more regularly now, and hope to start with the food project in the next few months.  I rather wait for the colder months to do that, so I'll find something to shoot while I'm indoors.  I'm looking for feedback on the best practices of doing b&w photography, so please drop me a line when you stop by!

I'm also excited about two photo shoots coming up in the next couple of days - one of them is going to feature a great cartoonist from Montreal!  Stay tuned!


  1. So glad you are back. Love the shot.

  2. You couldn't stay away from doing another challenge, i don't blame you, I'm sorta doing one for poetry but my life needs the summer reading programs to be over.

  3. @Swati: Thanks a lot!

    @Cathy: haha.. no, I couldn't! I had to do something. So glad to hear you're doing the poetry challenge yourself..
